So, after pretty much giving up on Chrome, I’ve thrown my collective addiction towards Bowman Platinum. I know a lot of folks are down on Platinum, citing the set for having little relevance, but I like it. It fills that “oooh, shiny” portion of my brain while at the same time having really great photography, a nice simple design and is completely without the insert insanity most sets have. The colored parallels are almost a non-issue. It’s also the only major set I’m wanting to finish this year, outside of my team sets. I had hopes of finishing Gypsy Queen but I haven’t made any more traction on that one, so it’s probably a lost cause.
Regardless, I like it, and after buying two more blasters last weekend (I seriously just need to get a hobby box), I decided to count up the cards and see where I was on a complete set.
Here’s what I’m missing. (complete with names). Updated 3/26/13
So, there you go. 5 left out of 100. That means I have a good number of dupes.
I’d like to complete the set, I think it would be really nice looking. I’d also prefer to trade for the remaining cards, I think that’s just more fun that buying a complete set. Anyway, I’m going to be adding the colored parallels and autos I’ve pulled across all my blasters to my tradebait page this weekend, so if you see anything you’d like, and have some of the missing cards to trade, please let me know.
I just saw the trade you did with John of ‘The Pursuit of 80’s(ness) and I may have a few remaining GQ for you that I opened from a blaster earlier in the year.
I’ll let you know when I get home tonight and have a look.
