First Set Completed in 2009

1987 Donruss

Duane G. and Jacobmrly tag teamed to send me the last four cards I needed for the '87 Donruss set. Duane stepped up with Pete Ladd:

and Jacobmrly provided the Boddicker,

the Dempsey,

and The Very Last Card. The card that turned this:

into this:

#522 Willie Hernandez

Many thanks to everyone out there who helped me complete this set: Jeffrey Wolfe, Don Sherman, Saints of the Cheap Seats, Duane, grcl, Todd Querry and Jacobmrly.

As a thank you for all of your help I had a little unannounced contest... A while back I received a 1987 Donruss rack pack (with Toys R Us price tag!) from Andy of 1988 Topps Cards fame and proprietor of a new blog, Traded Sets. However, I was so close to the set I never bothered to open it. SO... I put the name of everyone who sent me 1987 Donruss cards into a hat and had a drawing for the pack.

There are two rules to this contest:
  1. the person who receives the pack has to be willing to open it and post the pack rip so I can see what cards where in there.
  2. if Greg Maddux comes out of the pack you have to lie to me and not show him so I don't kick myself.
And the winner is...........

Jeffrey Wolfe

Send me an e-mail or a comment stating you accept the conditions and the pack is yours. I have a few packages to get together, but I should be able to send it out by the end of next week. Thanks again everybody!

Set completion, yay!!

Duane said...

awesome completion! I got to say though the Pete Ladd actually came from a pack that Mark from stats-on-the-back had thrown in box of cards he sent me, so while I score the goal give Mark an assist on that one.

Please tell me you are not one of those people who put two cards in a page pocket so the back is not visible!

For the love of all that is Chipper, please tell me no!
