Thanks to Jeff of New Card Smell for further inflating my already monstrous ego by sending me a 1 of 1 sketch card..... of myself.
This card was sent along with the last few 2008 Masterpieces short prints needed to complete my base set. This has to be the fastest I have ever put a set together, at just over a month. The few blasters I picked up in '08, 2 hobby boxes, a retail box, and about 5 or 6 trades was all it took. Hmmm... does that mean I technically started building it in '08? Does that count? All of the boxes were purchased in December, and that's when the decision was made to start collecting the set, even though I did bust a few blasters when I first got back in the game. Now there is a conundrum for you. Anyway, Jeff was kind enough to send roughly 10 cards for the price of shipping & materials only, which came to roughly $2.30.
Thanks dude. From both of us, my Bondsian cranium and me.
UPDATE: I AM A MORON. You read it here first folks. At least the time that I said it you did. I still need card #120, the last card in the set, to achieve completion. Insert premature completion joke here.
