Two Set Needs. Oh, Just One.

I walked out of Saturday's card show with three cards for my collection.  In addition to the T206, I picked up two 1955 Topps All American cards for my set.  Or I thought I did until about five minutes before writing this.

When I looked at my checklist, I thought that I needed both of these.  The Cas Myslinski was highlighted that I had, but my note that I'd bought from COMC was still there.  Months ago I picked up a copy from there and didn't pay attention to the back of the card.  The damage was terrible and the card number was not there.  So, I never put it into the set.  

Sometime since then, it appears that I picked up another copy from Nick's and now I have a double.  It's not the first mistake I've made and it won't be the last.  

With this addition, my set is 64.7% (66/102) complete.  

Happy collecting! 


  1. The good news is you're not alone. I've done that a few times in the past.

    P.S. That's a beautiful looking set.

    1. I love this set. I'd planned to work on more vintage football sets but I don't think I'm going to now. However, this one must be completed. There's SO much to love about it!

  2. Having too many sets that are 75% done, I constantly do this...

    1. It's the first time I've done it, but I haven't been a set builder until recently. Not sure I will do many more sets, but I've started acquiring T206 cards (I can't say that I'm working on the set, though) and I'm SURE it will happen with all the variations in that set.
