However, I bought an O-Pee-Chee blaster last night (with the cut out Jeter card) and want to finish it. So, I bought another one today. But there are a number of roads I can go down and I don't know which one to pick. OF the 600-card base set, I got 126 and about five doubles.
Before we get to the options, let's see the highlights of the blasters.
I like the Yankee Stadium, but of the stadium cards it's a little boring.
Sweet! I got a Kouzmanoff base card. Although, he looks kind of scary on it.
This is a Joba mini-black parallel.
This was the favorite card that I got. It was actually the only Jeter card. I didn't get a base of his in two blasters.
Two things stuck out about the set that I didn't care for. One was the checklist cards. I love the stadium checklist cards, but they aren't all like that. Some of them have the floating heads. I got a double of the Cardinals checklist and that just have a bunch of floating heads of Cards.
The other were the Moments card, specifically this Michael Young card, which I also got a double of. He looks bored and I don't see how this is a special moment from the '08 season. And why is it the '08 season?
I got the same card as the last card in both blasters. Probably one of my least favorite players.
So here is my dilemma.
1. Do I collect just the base cards?
2. Do I collect the master set? Marie isn't me collecting the master set because I pulled this card.
3. Do I just not even bother collecting the set and stick to getting the Jeters. I think there are 13 different Jeter cards in this set alone.
However, one thing I am considering doing is a little bit of a crazy project. I want to collect most of the base cards (excluding the checklist and team leaders cards) then send all of them out for TTM and see how many of them I get back. I am leaning toward this one because it's a little different, but we're talking about hundreds of dollars in postage.
So what do I do?
