Cards From Zach

Zach, from the awesome blog Autographed Cards, sent me an e-mail about my post last week about trying to finish the 2008 Topps Heritage set. I'm so close, yet so far. I'd be finished if it wasn't for the surprise introduction of the High Number series. That really stopped my momentum in 2008.

Zach was very helpful and even made me realize that I had made a mistake in identifying a card. I had copied the wrong name on the card number I needed, so when he offered me the player and the number didn't correspond, it seemed glaringly obvious. So I was helped out twice, which is nice.

I got three cards from the Heritage and High Numbers sets and a chrome card for the team set. Zach was kind enough to protect these cards with some 1986 Sportflics cards from my want list, which was awfully nice to do.

The want list and the 2008 Topps Heritage post have both been updated to reflect the new cards.

On a side note, I have been in the lengthy process of revamping, rechecking and organizing my collection and want lists. I know at least one potential trader has been waiting patiently for me to finish, so I can let him know exactly what I have. On the want list front, I have updated through 1990. On the collection front, it is still slowly coming together. I keep discovering different caches of cards to go through.

It is a long time coming for this organization. Since my want list was last majorly updated, I have moved twice. It is only since my wife and I were able to purchase our forever home, that I've been able to properly catalog my collection and give it room to breathe. Since my move in 2013, my collection has spent the bulk of its time stored away in a closet, rarely venturing past that domain. My move in late 2016 saw my collection get some much needed space, but no time to sort through it. Now, the time is here and the space is here, so it is the perfect time to streamline everything.

Side note over. I have to thank Zach once again for the great additions to the collection! I will be sending some 2019 Royals your way, as requested.

Glad to help out. It had been a while since I traded with a fellow blogger.
