    I didn't like the look either. I gave the ones I pulled away to someone who likes history-related things.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    So I would ask, did you list numbers or offer to upon request when you listed them? I've tried some pretty tricky sets before and it's easy to get turned off by the work it takes because people either want to gouge you or "don't have time" to send lists. If you're really putting the set together and were serious about it, you'll have a list and the last thing you want to do, particularly when you're a good way through, is buy a big lot blind.

    I started the yankee stadium legacy set and the Documentary set. I have almost half of the documentary set and 800 of the YSL set. The YSL was too expensive to finish(wasn't into paying $1 or more a card) and the Documentary set...well...I just sat down one day and asked myself "why". Like there was no real reason to finish it because when I thought about it, there was no significance. A random year with nothing exceptional that happened. I think the only reason to even be somewhat interested is because of the "tough" factor. But almost a decade later, nobody is going to fall over when you tell them you finished it. Well, I would but that's because I can appreciate what a pain it must have been. But it's not like collecting a full 93 finest refractor set or a full set of Crusades. I feel like you should collect what you want but if you have to put that type of effort in, you want people's jaws to drop. Not have them ask you, "what is that" when you show them because they can't even remember what it is.
    Collecting Jeff Bagwell all day every day!
    Current Jeff Bagwell count: 4,637 different cards!
    Also collecting Jerry Stackhouse! 751 different cards!
    Also collecting Jack Lambert and football players from all Texas colleges!
