The final envelope that I was waiting for from my recent Sportlots order finally arrived at my house so let's get right to it! For an envelope with only two cards in it, I think it still packed a pretty powerful punch.
We begin with this 2009 Upper Deck Goudey card of Nolan Ryan.
I've made a concerted effort over the past couple of months to try and actually finish off the 2009 Goudey set. I have most of the card that I need purchased (but not yet shipped) from COMC. Now that this last one is in hand from Sportlots, I'm down to needing only three more cards before I can finally knock this set off of my want list once and for all: 2009 Goudey Wants: Base: 211, 220, 224
From a set that is nearly complete to one that I've barely begun...
That's an Allen & Ginter retail only Behemoths Beneath mini and it puts me at the 40% complete mark for this particular insert set. Actually, I'm at 55% complete if you count the other three cards that are coming via trades but that I haven't actually gotten in hand and in my binder quite yet. Either way, there's a long ways to go on this (and most other 2020 A&G mini inserts)!
I think I'll give buying singles a break for awhile as I've recently begun to focus more and more on trading over at Trading Card Database. I really ought to see if anyone has those last few remaining Goudey cards available on that site!
