A lot purchased on eBay arrived today:
That's a stash of 121 inserts from the 2011 Lineage set.
Those ran me about a quarter a card, with the bulk of the price actually being for the 1975 style minis. I was the only bidder on each lot of the various inserts.
I felt a little bit bad for the seller, but that's how it goes. It's the most not-wonderful time of the year to sell baseball cards.
I've been casually working on the Lineage inserts and particularly the 1975 minis ever since they came out.
I particularly like the Pop-Up cards, which were a fairly tough pull from ripping the packs.
This particular haul allowed me to finally add a section on the want list for these various sets, which I will excerpt here -
I am collecting the Cloth Stickers and the Pop-Ups, and would like duplicates, so if you have any of those at all, I would be interested in them. The same is true of the Diamond Anniversary parallel; I have about 25% of those so far. I am not collecting the Refractors though I have a dozen or so of them.
Glossy Rookies: I need #11 Zach Britton
Venezuelan Backs: I need TV1 Derek Jeter, TV22 Jose Bautista, TV24 Albert Pujols
3D: Need any of these, have only a handful.
The 1975-style minis page is now updated as well - only 71 to go.
I am sorting baseball cards today, putting things away, getting packages ready to send, filling up binder pages, even ripping a few packs. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
