TWO COMPLETED SETS

 FOREVER AGO NIGHT OWL CARDS MENTIONED HE WAS THREE CARDS AWAY FROM COMPLETING HIS 2008 HERITAGE SET AND HE HAD TRACKED DOWN ONE OF THEM. I HAD ALREADY RESIGNED MYSELF TO THE TERRIBLE FACT THAT I WILL NEVER EVEN COMPLETE A HERITAGE NON-SP SET SO I CHECKED THROUGH MY ABSURDLY LARGE PILE OF NO-LONGER-WANTED HERITAGE CARDS TO SEE IF I HAD THE ONES HE NEEDED. I DID! THEN I FORGOT ABOUT THEM FOR MONTHS

BUT THEN!!! I FOUND THEM AGAIN AND WAS MORTIFIED ENOUGH TO COMMIT TO MAILING THOSE CARDS TO HIM RIGHT AWAY. THEN I COULDN'T FIND MY BUBBLE MAILERS

BUT THEN!!!!! I FOUND THE BUBBLE MAILERS!!!!! AND I ACTUALLY PUT THE CARDS INTO THE BUBBLE MAILER!!!!! AND I ACTUALLY EVEN MAILED THE BUBBLE MAILER!!!!! I DID A THING!!!!! AND THEN NIGHT OWL GOT THE CARDS AND REALIZED HE WAS STILL MISSING ONE MORE CARD

BUT THEN!!!!!!! HE BOUGHT THE CARD!!!!!!! AND FOUND OUT HE HAD PUT A CARD IN THE WRONG SLOT ON A PAGE AND NEEDED A DIFFERENT CARD

BUT THEN!!!!!!!!! HE GOT THE RIGHT CARD AND FINISHED THE SET AND ALL IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD

WELL NOT REALLY. BUT HE COMPLETED AN IMPOSSIBLE SET AND I HELPED AND THAT'S GOOD

BUT THEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE THE LAST CARD WAS INSERTED INTO A PAGE AND NIGHT OWL'S SET WAS COMPLETE I FOUND THIS:

THIS IS A 1980-81 TOPPS BASKETBALL ROBERT PARISH CARD SEPARATED FROM A PANEL. THE 80-81 SET IS INFAMOUS FOR BEING AN 88 CARD SET OF THREE CARD PANELS THAT MAKE UP A 264 CARD MINI SET BUT THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS OF THE PANELS SO IT'S ACTUALLY A 176 CARD PANEL SET BUT YOU NEED 264 PANELS SO YOU CAN RIP 88 OF THEM IF YOU WANT BOTH VERSIONS OF THE 88 CARD PANEL SET AND A 264 CARD MINI SET SO YOU HAVE EVERYTHING BECAUSE YOU ARE A COLLECTOR AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE EVERYTHING. ALSO THERE IS A SET OF SIXTEEN TEAM PIN-UP POSTERS YOU NEED THEM TOO

THANKFULLY I BOUGHT A VENDING BOX OF 1980-81 TOPPS BASKETBALL THAT HAD ABOUT AN INCH OF DUST ON IT AT MY LOCAL CARD SHOP WHEN I WAS ABOUT 15 FOR SEVEN BUCKS. SO I HAD 264 CARDS AND THEN SOME. AND BOY HOWDY I RIPPED 88 CARDS. NOT THAT ONE. BUT I HAD 263 OF THOSE MINI CARDS IN A BOX AND I KNEW I HAD THE PARISH BUT IT WAS MIXED UP IN SOME JUNK BOX AND I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHICH JUNK BOX IT WAS. THEN WITH A LITTLE BIT OF INSTANT KARMA I FOUND THE BOX WITH PARISH IN

NOW NIGHT OWL HAS A SET, AND I HAVE A SET. ALL IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD EXCEPT FOR LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE. ENJOY THE SET



















IF YOU'RE WONDERING WHAT THOSE CARDS UNDERNEATH ARE, THAT IS THE FIRST PAGE OF COOL BINDER VOL. 2

This post got the blood pumping. Congratulations on owning the iconic 1980-81 Topps basketball set. I have some singles, but don't have the guts to separate them ;D
