August Project Progress Report

August 31, 2011

As I mentioned in a post earlier this month, I went on a bit of a binge when it comes to buying on eBay over the past month and a bit.

Part of me feels guilty about dipping into my personal finances to add to my collection when the ultimate goal of my hobby right now is to stop doing that and allow it to become 100% financially self-sufficient.

Then the mail arrives!

With August wrapping up in just a few short hours, it is time to once again show off this month’s loot.

As has often been the case in these monthly reviews, it is dominated by my 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces Master Set project, particularly the Canvas Clippings Jerseys Green Parallel set, of which I found 8 cards I needed.

All told, I knocked another 23 cards off my project want lists in August, a number that a number of recent months failed to yield combined!

When it comes to the handful of additions for my player-specific collecting projects, I am equally happy about each of them being knocked off the list.

Truth be told, the 04-05 Upper Deck National Sports Collectors Convention card of Thornton was never even on the list since I did not realize that it existed prior to finding it listed on eBay.

The other three cards range from 7 to 10 years old, making them each a very positive acquisition after such a long time on the hunt!

                      

*****

As I always do, an updated list of the cards I still need in my set-related projects is included below.  Please have a look and be sure to let me know if you, or any fellow collectors you know of, might have something from my most recent list of wants.

Leave a comment below, e-mail me at bb_bros@hotmail.com, or connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.  Also, please feel free to subscribe to this blog, either by clicking the “Sign Me Up!” button in the right column or through the RSS feed.

Until Sunday, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
