The joys of random completed sets.

as one of the few remaining set collectors in existence (at least, that's how it feels around here at local trade nights and shows...) it's always a feeling of joy when I am able to add that last missing card to the binder. Filling that last empty slot in the page. I can't help but smile.
I was able to do just that for three sets recently.
a 2009 Black Ichiro Suzuki #300. This completes my 2009 Topps Black set. I don't have the regular flagship, but I do have the Black parallel complete set. Yay me.
 I've had this card on my Dirty Dozen most wanted there on the right hand side of the blog for about three years, but have now crossed him, and a few others off.
Come to think of it, I can cross #7 off now too.

Keep an eye out for updates soon! I know you'll all wait breathless with anticipation. UPDATED!!!

Next up, card #126 from the 1992 Topps set.
 This completes my 1992 Topps Braves team set.

and lastly, a wonderful minty fresh 1978 Topps Braves team card.

I'm surprised no one ever graded this baby. It's sharp. And now it's mine. Safe from the plastic prison from hell. Another team set complete.

and now as a reward for those of you who actually read this stuff.... head over to Play At The Plate and enter his contest. Somehow he got Topps to DONATE a hobby box of 2014 Bowman. And Mr Plate is giving it away. LINK <----------- p="">

Congrats on completing your sets. I've purchased complete sets but I don't think I've chased a set since I was a kid.

Finishing the oil slick parallels is impressive. I like those a lot, but never enough to try completing them.

Congrats! I always have respect for a completed parallel set. I almost did it once with 92-93 Parkhurst Emeralds and then I copped out 20 years later and just bought the whole shebang.

Congratulations on those set completions. Yes getting that final oh so elusive card to complete the set is pure satisfaction.
