I've been very lucky over the last few weeks to knock off quite a few cards from the massive Blue Jays want list. I normally will look at the want list from the top to the bottom, meaning that the older sets are the ones that I look at first.
For the longest time, this portion of the list had me wondering:
What in the world could those cards be? I knew that there weren't any key rookies that I was missing from that era, so I decided to hop on COMC.com and find out what the cards were. I had forgotten all the quad boxed rookie cards from that set, of which these 2 cards were a part.
Upon finding out who was on the cards, picking them up for about $1 apiece didn't hurt me that much, and now the '78 Topps set has been marked COMPLETE.
I can happily say that I now have finished the Blue Jays portion of the '78 set with these 2 cards. With a little over 2 dozen pre 1995 sets just needing 1 or 2 cards to complete, I may just start knocking these off, one set at a time if I have to.
It'll be nice to shorten the list, as I'm sure that there's a lot of people that probably get dizzy scrolling up and down it. I know I'm one of them....
