2012 Collecting Goals pt1
Anyway, I'm going to try and spell out McCutchen. I found the c and C cheap on COMC and recently won another auction for the U on ebay. That could put me at McCUTC in a little over a week. I still need the H, E, N. Because I don't want them to look odd when fully assembled it has to be the numbered out of 106. None of the blue, green, etc. limited refractors. Just the base only.
Also, I'm trying to assemble the black bordered /61 Pirates cards this year. I've never attempted to put together a parallel team set like this before and be completely committed to it. Last year I bought a few of the 2011 Heritage blank back 1/1s off Topps site, but some of them are now in permanent collections so I have no shot at obtaining that team set. This seems a bit more realistic. Not to mention that the black borders this year really look great on the Pirates cards.
I picked up Kevin Correia off ebay for $7 (hasn't arrived yet) and I assure you I will never pay more than $1 for a Kevin Correia card again in my lifetime had it not been for trying to complete this set.
I'm still looking to add Neil Walker, Jeff Karstens, and Jose Tabata.
