I feel that there are too many sets on my wantlist that have been
sitting there for years while I slowly chip away at them. This year I
noticed that a lot of those sets are well within striking distance this
year, so I've tried to swing some trades for set needs while focusing my
recent Sportlots purchase on sets as well. We'll see how many sets I
can kill before the year is out.
For the past few years, I have written a post that summarizes my set completion quests for the year. I still plan to do that for 2020, but I also decided to give a progress report for sets that I'm actively acquiring cards for along the way. I thought this might be more interesting than writing one giant post that tries to tie all the different cards from a trade or a purchase together.
I've never, ever opened a pack of today's set. I've seen 20+ year old boxes of it for sale, and it is far too pricey for me. I never even had a card from this set until the day I decided to build the set. But when I first bought a lot of 1997 Upper Deck Legends from somebody on TCDB, it was love at first sight.
How long has it been on my wantlist (roughly)?: I'm thinking it has probably been two years now.
Current state of set completion: 186/208 (89.4%)
