March Project Progress Report

March 30, 2011

Another month, another Project Progress Report that is dominated by additions to my 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces Master Set Project (minus any one of one’s of course).  I really just cannot get enough of this product.  Even as I try to seriously restrict my spending, every time I pick up a new card for the project I find myself heading back to eBay to search for more.  In total, seventeen of the twenty-four cards I added to my projects this month come from that product.

An interesting note related to this project is that I now also have my first player completed across the board, having added the Red Parallel version of Alex Delvecchio to the Blue, Brown, Green, and base set variations I had already tracked down.

I also pushed the regular set and parallels portion of the project past the 50% completion mark this month, another small victory in pursuit of an admittedly difficult goal.

Another card I was especially happy to pick up this month is the 1997-98 Donruss Preferred Platinum Cut to the Chase parallel card of Brendan Shanahan.  I was more than happy to pay the $8.99 it cost me to add a particularly difficult find to this ongoing project.

Unfortunately, my focus on the Masterpieces project came at a cost other than the obvious financial one.  My player-specific projects saw all of two cards added to collection this month, each from an Artifacts release and each limited to just fifty copies.

In preparation for yet another eBay fee hike for sellers, I am planning on making April a little lighter on the purchasing end of things.  I think I wanted to do the same in March, which did not quite turn out as planned, but the eBay fee changes are causing me some real concern as to the viability of my little hobby “business” and that is enough motivation to rein things in as best I can.

Even so, please take a look at the need lists shown below and if you have any of the cards listed (or not listed as the case may be), or know of someone who does, 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!

Until Sunday’s first post of April, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
