Light at the end of the tunnel

Still no baseball games of any sort [sob]. Just playing various baseball video games and going through my baseball card collection.

As far as my baseball card collection. As almost always focusing on Cubs Team sets. I just need 2002 and 2003 Topps Cubs team sets to fill my team shelves (and about 15 more bins to put the rest of the sets in). Looking now at how to acquire these for the best price/quality. I am not sold on the 2002 Topps. Although a very interesting design, I am considering the 2002 Fleer as a replacement for Topps 2002. Why? Simply because it is a better looking set. My opinion of course, but I think the blue on blue looks awesome. Additional goals, I'm also looking to complete my 1981 Fleer and Topps for Cubs and White Sox. 1981 Topps is almost complete and need quite a few for Fleer. http://mrgibson.com/baseballp.php?year=1981
Also I need 5 more cards for my 1983 Topps Cubs. I'm lucky to have the 9 core cards. http://mrgibson.com/baseballp.php?y…

Completed my Cubs Topps 2014

Image
I don't know why it took so long, but I have completed my 2014 Cubs Team set with 26 cards. Possibly because I have been obsessed with my Cubs 50s and 60s sets. But the fact is I love Topps Standard 2014 cards and the variants. It is truly one of Topps better modern sets.
