Ok. Part 1 of my new plan is done, figure out what you want to collect.

Part 2 starts now. Going through the boxes of whats left and trying to A) find a good home or B) moving it to the banished pile.

I’ll try to add a few items each week (or when I feel like it).

Any baseball collectors with specific needs (team or player) let me know and I can put a package together for you no strings attached. If I have it, you can have it.

 

1st post Some Topps Gold Baseball.

A couple are from 93 and a couple from 94 I think.

Is thereabouts one word or two? Anyway, the big list is done. And it is a BIG list.

Every OPC Hockey card possible. Classic/Original run, Topps life support parallels and Upper Deck revivals.

64296 Unique cards. And my goal is one of each. (I’ll give you time to stop laughing).

Impossible task – most likely.

Lots of fun trying – most definitely

I’m putting this chart here to track where I started from. June 29, 2015

Full list = all possible “OPC cards”. This includes, all variables, all SP’s, all inserts, all box bottoms, checklists and errors.

Pre 2000 = well obviously cards issued prior to 2000

Classic OPC Run – The  bread and butter collection.  to 1968-1969 OPC to 1994-1995 OPC Premier (and the death of OPC v1.0)

Post 2000= cards issued after 2000 (under the Topps banner to start but last 10 years as an Upper Deck brand)

My 1st focus is on the classic run and I’m almost halfway there.

For anyone who wants to know how I got to these numbers, check out the page called (The Big Count at the top)
