These 10 cards, all from the rookies subset, close the book on my second set of 2008 SP Rookie Edition football. I found a few full retail boxes at Meijer a few years ago and had enough extras to make it worth putting together a second set. In typical Sportlots fashion I got five of these from one seller, three from another, and the last two from a third. In all, I made purchases from seven sellers but still came in under $30 because I was able to apply some sellers' loot for the first time.
Axing this set makes my football wantlist smaller, and I'll also insert a side note that I decided to cease collecting 2001 MVP football because I just wasn't into it; the incomplete set, minus Wolverines of course, is available for trade, and I'll have more on that at a later date.
Stay tuned as I'll hopefully show off the other football set I completed shortly.
That's it. NOTHING. I seriously have no idea when the last time was that my baseball set wantlist was empty in all my years of collecting. In a way it's a bittersweet moment as it pretty much signals the end of my days as a set-builder, but the fact is that newer products haven't interested me, and neither have box prices. But that's totally fine because it's led to my new focus of player collecting, which has given me a refreshing new lease on the hobby.
That's not to say I won't ever collect any more sets, baseball or otherwise, but if I do it'll be a much smaller part of my collecting experience.
Keep an eye out for one more football-centric You Complete Me post, hopefully this week!
