This week it’s plastic, as I received a good chunk of needed cards to complete one of my top 5 important sets to build, 1999 E-X Century. Last summer when I was starting to get back into the hobby and see what all I had that I had forgotten about, I came across a Vlad Guerrero 1999 EX Century card that I do not ever remember buying. It was a clear plastic card with some designs tinted inside the card, and some opaque designs and the photo layered on top. I loved the look and the craft of the card, so I bought a few commons on sportsbuy.com and sportlots.com, and really became hooked on the set. I recently found some of the bigger stars cheap on COMC and grabbed a bunch, which arrive last week.
The Griffey card is beyond cool. I wish the Piazza had been a better pose, but it's cool as well. This pushes the completion % for this awesome set to 75% with 30 cards to go. Most of the ones I still need are commons, so I think I’ll be able to finish the set this summer. Buckle up for that adventure readers! I have listed the cards that I still need at the top of my blog, I have several extras that I will post as trade bait.
