The Elation of a Filled Up Sampler Album Sheet: 1976

It's been a while since I've done a sampler album page, and I've kind of missed it.  I've updated the album quite a bit recently, just haven't posted anything.

I've decided to go ahead and show the whole album in Spreadsheet form on my Sampler Album tab at the top of the blog.  For anyone who cares, the spreadsheet has a few parts to it:

Tab 1:

Top part of the spreadsheet shows the major award winners by year. 

The middle shows silly things like that year's Oscar winning film, who the President was, etc.  I'm still working on that part, but thought it would help give a good frame of reference of life outside of baseball each year.

Bottom part shows what cards I've got for each year, a few on my wish list, and what sort of percent completion I'm at per year.

Tab 2: 

Just ignore tab 2.  It's a quick way for me to see what interesting players were active per year.  Very subjective.

What stands out to me are the mid 90s sets that are so light in my album.  I'm having no luck getting any 1994 cards in trades.  Sure, I could go to sportlots.com and pick up what I need, but that's no fun.

Another note:  I'm trying to keep my album as diverse and interesting as possible.  If you don't see a name listed across the years that you think should be included, let me know.  I'd like to keep the repitition of names to a minimum.

The page for today is 1976:

I'm pretty happy with this page.  A bunch of good names, and the cards are in good shape.  Any page with Hank Aaron is a good one.    There are a few opportunities to upgrade, or at least move out some repeated names from other years, but for now I'm fine with it.  The Fergie Jenkins card is the bomb, and I want one of those Rangers jerseys.
