With about 180 to go, I stumbled upon the exclusive Detroit Tigers 2008 Team Gift Set including 55 Tigers. The loaded the Auto collection with a Leaf Signature Cut Dual Auto of THE #3 Alan Trammell and THE BEST BASEBALL PLAYER OF OUR GENERATION Miguel Cabrera.
I haven't jumped into group breaks yet, but noticed a four box hobby break of 2013 Bowman on the bay and swooped up the Tigers, the loot arrived today, netting at least 3 team sets of base & prospects. SLICK!
Then, noticed this at the end....
Finally, I had decided when I was within 130 cards I would purchase the 1981 Detroit News 100 Years of Tiger baseball set. So that is on it's way.
Now what to do? 6,000 was a mere goal to attain before October and I have been sidetracked a tad from staying the course of focus (and budget) and need to get back to basics. Quality v Quantity. I am going to spend some more time cataloging the collection, highlighting some great Tigers and careers.
The splurge of the summer will be over with Archives (tomorrow, I can't freakin' wait!) and Series 2 coming out soon. We'll cool it down on the Hot Corner in terms of spending, but time spent with what I have will be well spent!
Keep it Hot on the Corner, pat.
