Not long now...

Well it's been just over a week since the 6-Boxes transaction took place on some auction site... I can't remember what it's called... I think it's world famous though.
I expect my boxes to show up either tomorrow or by Wednesday this week. Also, once the dust has settled on those great purchases, I will be hitting that said auction site once again, in search of the great 2008 and 2009 Topps factory sets. Since I own basically every Topps card from 1984 onwards (save the 85 set), it will be with great delight that I add these to my collection, and of course, I eagerly await the 2010 Factory Set release (June/July?) once the season is well under way.
I'm currently sorting my 1994 Fleer cards, and although I've purchased about 8 boxes of this issue over the years, I STILL cannot get my hands on 3 commons to complete my set. Frank Thomas, Ken Ryan and Jeff Mutis. Amazing, considering at least 4 of those boxes were jumbos. Something to be said for Fleer there...

Oh yeah, Piazza for the HOF, 237 cards and counting...


  1. Can't wait to see what you pull. It's nice to find another Aussie baseball card collector (I'm in W.A.)

  2. Jonathan, great to hear from another fellow collector in our great land!
    Well I got some great cards from the 6-box lot, I completed my 1995 and 1997 Topps sets, plus I got nearly all of the 1994 UD2 series, a few cards short, but close enough!
    What cards do you collect? I'm guessing Baseball, but do you have any specifics? I'm going to follow you and find out hehe.
