The biggest order I've made on COMC came with just 5 cards from 2 OPC sets that I've been working on for quite a while.

These 2 12-13 OPC cards bring this list down to just 6.  Why in the hell didn't I just buy the other 6?  I don't know what it is about refusing to over pay for some of these SPs.   Maybe I shouldn't be putting these sets together if I flat out keep stalling to finish them up when I'm so close.

2013-14 OPC is a little further out, 30 cards remaining.  Now there are 3 cards that are worth a few bucks that I still need, names such as Tarasenko, Gallagher and Marchessault.  Those I can live with waiting for a bit to purchase.  Dougie Hamilton and Alex Galchenyuk are needs also.  Most of the other names are guys that have had their cup of coffee and are on to doing other things, or are 3rd/4th liners in the NHL.  But my stinginess prevents me from ponying up the $$ to get these sets out of the way.

Maybe it's time to make a plan in 2020 to finish up a bunch of sets.  Sometimes just sitting and writing posts gives me ideas for the weeks/months to come. 

2019's lead off post turned out to be a success for me because it was simple, two goals, both of which were completed easily (150 trades!).  I didn't stall on working on both of those goals.

2020 will be a year of clear vision.  More on that next year.  No stalling either. 

Thanks for reading!



  1. I do the same thing. I just cant bring myself to pay more than 25% of a cards value unless we're talking pennies.

  2. I'd love to finish up at least five sets I'm building in 2020... but I say that at the start of every year ;)
