One of the many community members has been Doug from the Sportscards from the Dollar Store blog, who was gracious enough to send me 4 more cards that I was able to put into the set (Venable was numbered 928 Doug, a number I already had and don't know how I missed it...).
A pair of 2009 Triple Threads, along with a pair of Ohio based 2014 Topps gold cards knock 4 numbers off of the list, bringing the set down to 152 needed to complete the set of 1500.
- Peavy brings the Padres up to 48 cards
- Carlos Lee sees the Astros rise up to 41 out of 50
- Chris Perez and his flowing locks get the Indians to 45
- Jay Bruuuuuuce's card has the Reds sitting at 46
I think I'm going to enjoy pursuing Lawrie's cards, since I didn't wait as long to start his PC (not like Sakic and Thome). I don't have a whole lot of Lawrie so far, but I think that will change quickly.
I have a feeling that I'm going to be busy with a lot of trades this summer. Not sure why I feel that way, but I really hope I'm right!
Doug, another awesome envelope, thank you very much! The cards are really appreciated.
thanks for reading, Robert
