February Project Progress Report

February 23, 2011

With February being a few days shorter than every other month for reasons completely unknown to me, today’s final-Wednesday-of-the-month Project Progress Report port came up on me pretty quickly seeing as any other month would have provided me with an entire extra week of accumulating cards.

To briefly recap for those new to this blog, I use the last Wednesday of every month to update readers on additions to my collection while at the same time drawing some attention to the cards I am still chasing.  If you have any of the cards shown in the checklist that follows this article available at a decent price, or know of someone who does, please feel free to get in touch and let me know.  E-mail me at bb_bros[at]hotmail[dot]com, find me on Twitter (@bb_bros) or Facebook, or just post a comment in this article!

For today’s Project Progress Report, the especially good news is that I can report the first “mission accomplished” in this series as I have finally tracked down the elusive Jaromir Jagr Platinum base set short print from 1997-98 Donruss Preferred, roughly 13 years after the set’s release.

Strangely, after scouring eBay for literally years and only ever seeing a handful of these cards show up (a few of which I lost out on when the price got too high), the Jagr Platinum has made multiple appearances over the past month.  Typical of my luck as well, a few of them have sold for a fair bit less than I bought mine for, however I am still comfortable with the price I paid, so I can’t be too down about that end of things.

I also got incredible deals (to me at least) on a couple of the cards pictured below that will serve as the topics for a pair of upcoming Steal of a Deal articles, but to keep you guessing I’m not going to drop any hints as to which cards they are.

Before that though, my regular Month-End “Business” Update is coming up on Sunday, just a day after my wife and I have moved in to our first home together.

Until then, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
