The Twelve Days of Setsmas - Day 4: Bubba Roof

The past two days of Setsmas were postponed on account of work.
This annoyed the frustrated perfectionist in me and I almost cancelled Christmas but I had a day off to myself and thought better of it
now I am just going to post twelve sets vaguely in the vicinity of December and not stress out  about blawg posts about baseball cards.
Here's a set, man, or whatever, I don't even care

2016 Leaf Babe Ruth Collection

If forced at gunpoint to provide a HOTTT TAEK on Nouveau Leaf my general opinion would be that most of their stuff is hot buttered garbage that I don't care about at all. It's all out of my price range anyway so it's not a problem, BUT.... this year they did a Babe Ruth tribute set much like their Pete Rose tribute sets that seem to show up everywhere and their Stan Musial sort-of tribute set/sticker dump that I never see anywhere. A blaster was out of my price range again BUT..... they showed up in the Target discount blaster section so I snagged one because BABE RUTH IS AWESOME. Was not expecting to get a complete set in a blaster! No relics or autos or whatever but a complete set is a glorious thing in itself. The set looks really good too, as long as you're not allergic to sepia. A 100 card set divided into an 80-card base set and two 10-card 'insert' sets pages out like ass though. MY SOLUTION: Surround Card #1 with 8 other Ruth cards, tack on cards #1 from the two insert sets to the end of the base set then have a page each for the inserts. I don't know if it works or not but at least I'm trying!

 See if you can spot the greatest card in the history in the Multiverse!

Tomorrow(?): I have plans!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining,
and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
