Looking for Help: 2015 Topps Archives!

Now that the madness of my 2015 Topps Archives group break is over, it's time for me to focus on how I feel about the Archives set.  After a bit of consideration, I have to say:  I like it!

There is a nice mix of players (current, retired, and rookies) with quite a few interesting photos.  Sure, there are plenty of rehashes of photos as well but you can't have everything I guess.  The biggest drawback (from my perspective) on Archives is the cost - $100 a box is wayyyy to steep.  We did well with our group break but not every case will hold both a Bryant auto and a Joc Pederson auto.  In fact, I'd guess most cases won't hold either of those signatures.

Anyhow, I have decided to chase the entire 300 card base set - for now I'll be pretending the extra 30 short prints don't exist...though if you do have one available for trade maybe we can work something out.

I'm also going to chase after the entire ten card Will Ferrell insert set.  Thanks to the group break - plus a few generous group break participants, I currently have 4 of the 10 cards.

40% isn't bad...but I'd like to get to 100%.  I've updated my want list with what I need - so please, let me know if you want to work out a deal!

I wasn't paying close attention to the case . . . did we wind up pulling all 10 different Ferrell cards within the case? If so, that's pretty darn good collation.

I can help. I'm also going to chase the Ferrell rainbow! Sadly I'm only 2 deep.
