Finished Cup:1996 Spx Baseball

New segments are always fun to install into a blog.

It can bring new life to the blog and to the person writing the blog. I have introduced a few this year on Cards Over Coffee and hopefully everyone has enjoyed reading them as much as I have been writing them.

Today's newest segment bounces off from another segment on here, Unfinished Cup.

The difference, one is unfinished sets I am chasing, the other, guess what, I finished a set!

That's exactly what today's post will be about.

*takes a sip*

Some people think that a rollercoaster is the greatest thrill ride you can go on, but I guess those people haven't ever finished a long time set chase before.

As soon as I got this final card for my 1996 Spx baseball base set from @gingersnap4004, I was already on the thrill ride of a lifetime.

Now after twenty-plus years it is finally complete!

Only one thing left, a brag gallery,






 
And there it is. All 60 cards in the set.

I don't know about you, but I am on an all-time high. 

Like Snoop Dogg level.

Thanks again for the final piece @gingersnap4004. Now onto chasing the parallel, inserts sets and autographs.

Thoughts on my latest segment and this set completion welcomed in comments.

  4. I remember having a bunch of cards from the hockey version of this set. They do look nice in nine-pocket pages, don't they? Very cool that you finished the baseball set. Congratulations!
