My First Completed Set

I've had this post done for about 2 weeks now but just got it published being busy with work and life.  I do have some PWEs from Jedi Jeff to catch up on and a package that Tony from Off Hiatus sent my way to take care of my 2012 Archives base needs.  Now all thats left is SPs.  Whoever wants to send the Bryce Harper SSP rookie card feel free too being it goes for around $200 last I looked.  So I guess I'll have a completed set minus that card.  It also looks like I will be able to finalize a bunch of packages in the next week and get out the giveaway goods in the next week or so.  Just need a few more days and time to get everything caught up an put together.  I apologize for the delay.

I just recently completed the 2013 Triple Threads Amethyst Set. It is the first set that I've completed in a long time. I bought 2 boxes of the stuff probably about a year ago and decided I was going to go after the Amethyst parallels from the 2 boxes. I figured I might as well chase the Amethyst set instead of the base. It has a nice variety of current stars and retired players also. 

I ended up getting some of the cards via eBay lots for a pretty good price that I needed and Matt from over at Bob Walk the Plank hooked me up with a few too. The last 15 or so cards were purchased via COMC for well under a buck card on average. The most expensive and hardest to find card was the Puig rookie card.

Well enough rambling about the set here it is in all its glory and check out my other set needs over on the right hand side. I do need to update it to reflect that I am chasing the Munnatawket minis set that looks like Ginter.

Here is the set in all its glory in wonderful 9 pocket pages. Anyone care to take a guess what team an player is featured on the last card. 

Here is a copy of the link to the where all of my completed sets will be.  As of now that is the only set that I have completed to date so CLICK HERE to view the 100 card set.


  1. There's something special about completing a baseball card set. I'm in the process of building over 20 baseball sets right now and I get excited every time I cross off a set. Congratulations on completing the Triple Threads and Archives sets.
