April Want List Wednesday/Project Progress Report Combo

April 4, 2012

Email Me | Twitter | Facebook | My eBay Store | RSS Feed

When I sat down to look through the box of cards I had brought in for my collection this month hack out today’s article reporting on them, I didn’t have the feeling that I would have much to share.

After all, I had only purchased a total of eight cards on eBay since the March edition of this series.

Apparently my memory wasn’t working all that well though because as I counted up everything in the box I discovered that a grand total of 151 cards had been removed from my want list over the course of the 4 weeks since my March report, nearly equalling the combined total from the previous two Want List Wednesday/Project Progress Report Combo articles.

The lack of eBay purchases on my part was more than made up for by cards my dad bought during a visit to a small card show in Toronto, along with an abundance of cards coming in via the trade route early in the month.

Almost all of the acquisitions that were made courtesy of my dad and through trades arrived a few short days after I posted that March report though, so the lack of recent additions likely explains why I seem to have been so forgetful.

My dad’s visit to the cards show netted us seven Mario Lemieux cards, four Jeremy Roenicks, nine Joe Thornton additions, and five Steve Yzermans that included a Pacific Atomic jersey card from 2001-02. That was the only addition to the player collections that was more than ten years old, a collecting goal I am going to need to focus more of my attention on in the coming months if I want to have any hope of completing it across all five player-specific collections by the end of the year.

My eBay purchases included a pair of 2006-07 Upper Deck Artifacts Bronze parallels (one of which was a complete hassle to finally acquire), and six cards from my 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces Master Set project.  Included in those six cards were two Green Border parallels, two Blue Border parallels, and Green Border parallels from each of the Brushstrokes and Canvas Clippings sets.

                                                                

Finally, the trades I completed over the course of the month resulted in what I feel is an impressive 120 cards (that I didn’t scan to include today) being removed from the list I had posted last month.

From those additions I was able to complete the second of four 1997-98 Donruss Preferred Bronze sets I started the year with, the first of two 1997-98 Leaf base sets that were on my radar, and a 1998-99 UD Choice StarQuest Blue set that I required a couple of cards for.

Since I’m still working on removing base set cards from my Preferred Bronze and Leaf want lists, the completion of those two sets won’t be counted toward the completion of Collecting Goal #2 until all of the base cards are in-hand.  The StarQuest set, on the other hand, will count.  That marks four of the non-player specific projects now being removed from my want list in 2012, leaving only one more to go before I can mark that goal complete!

Unless I am able to whip up a bunch of trades and get them done in record time in April (I’ve been lagging on my trade forum activity in recent weeks), I don’t anticipate the May edition of my Want List Wednesday/Project Progress Report Combo to show anywhere near this level of success, largely due to the fact that I am saving as much as I can for the Toronto Spring Sports Card and Memorabilia Expo that I’ll be attending just two days after that article will be posted. 

My updated want list is shown below though, so if you have anything that I need and you’re interested in making a deal to help me make some progress, please feel free to get in touch so we can try to work something out. 

As is always the case, my complete want lists for each of my player-specific projects are not included due to the sheer size of them, but I welcome you to get in touch if you have something you think I might be interested in.

Until Sunday, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
