After grabbing a fun blaster of 2014 Topps Olympic Team and yadda yadda yadda last weekend, I picked up one more at Meijer on Friday for my final February purchase. I had 15% off, making the price a slightly more reasonable $18.70, and I thought it would be worth taking a stab at completing the set while also scoring more trade bait or stuff to sell.
I'll spoil the fun upfront by saying that the one I picked this time couldn't live up to last week's, though that's not a huge surprise since that one went so well for me. I also didn't complete the set or pick up anything all that big, but I still enjoyed the break. Here's how I did:
the Bronze winner in the US sweep of men's slopestyle, which rocked. The Olympic Heritage card celebrating the 2006 Turin games is my first from that set, while I pulled another "Games" card of Bronze-medalist luger Erin Hamlin.
The hit (just one this time!):
Aaron is apparently quite accomplished in the sport, though hasn't participated in the Olympics.
Finally, I ended up with 27 new base cards I needed (out of 61, so not bad), putting me just 12 cards short of the set: 1 7 11 17 24 33 47 51 62 74 75 85.
I also now have these doubles to trade (as well as everything else I've pulled): 3 4 8 9 10 15 18 21 26 29 30 39 42 48 49 53 57 58 59 61 65 67 68 69 76 80 82 84 87 90 94 97 100.
If any of you would like to do any trading, please let me know!
