At long last I can show off this set in its entirety! For a quick refresher (not that I haven't mentioned it 100 times here), I first learned about the set and picked up 19 of the 30 cards for under $10 at a show last April. A few months went by before I made another move, scoring three new ones--Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, and Nolan Ryan--on COMC for just $5.50. Needing eight cards at that point, I took advantage of COMC's Black Friday sales to move on picking up four more, and then found Ozzie Smith's issue during the Boxing Day promotions. As I was nearing the finish line I lucked into digging out Lou Gehrig in a $2 box at a show a couple weeks ago, and that's when I really got my ass in gear. Needing just the Ruth and Musial cards, I lucked into a very nice price on the Ruth from a seller in Michigan, and thus motivated, nabbed a nice BIN offer for Stan the Man. The Ruth arrived today and that's all she wrote!
Since I've already described the cards, I'll now present them in all their glory without any further interruption, other to point out that "just" 1,936 complete sets are possible, and that this is the second ever all-serial-numbered set I've completed (the other being the 2001 Donruss Rookie Reprints). Oh yeah, and one last thing: I now have literally zero cards on my set wantlists!
Ok, all that said, please enjoy what I think is a fantastic set (especially since it was a lot of work acquiring the cards, scanning fronts and backs, and stitching them together)!
