|On the way to Vermont (don't worry, I wasn't the one driving)|
On our trip, I managed to get a lot of my Christmas shopping done (and I got a bit more done online this weekend including a couple of eBay purchases for my Secret Santa).
Despite all the fun (and it was a fun holiday weekend), I still had a lot of work to accomplish as well - something that I pretty much worked on all day on Sunday. I only have two weeks remaining to teach classes this semester (plus a week of finals after that) so the super crushing work load is going to ease up soon!
Until then, my blogging will probably be sporadic at best - but since I'm here now, how about I rip another one of my 1997 Fleer Sports Illustrated packs. It's almost impossible to believe that I've taken this long to rip a box of baseball cards...but alas, it's true! I am down to the final three packs...here's one of them now.
5. Jason Dickson
39. Joe Carter
110. Dante Bichette
161. Will Clark
Covers: 8 of 12 CC. Brooks Robinson
Great Shots: Derek Jeter
That's my second Covers insert card in this box (the other was the sweet Joe Morgan card I pulled a number of packs...and weeks...ago)!
According to my want list (which I need to update in terms of this set...something I plan to do when I finally rip the last two remaining packs), I needed the Great Shots mini poster of Jeter...and that's it. I wasn't planning on collecting the entire Covers insert set (mostly because no one probably has any for trade and I don't plan on continuing to buy boxes of this product hoping for two cards from a single insert set).
I hope to be back soon with more blog content...I just celebrated my birthday about a week and half ago and I have some birthday loot to share here as well.
It'll all happen in due time.
