May Want List Wednesday/Project Progress Report Combo

May 2, 2012

After two consecutive months of removing 100-plus cards from my want lists, April didn’t quite live up to those lofty levels of additions to my collection.

While I managed to get 85 cards crossed off the lists this month, the vast majority of those came in the form of not-so-exciting base set cards for sets that I hope to one day sell or trade to a fellow collector who wants/needs them much more than I do.

Those lists are 68 singles shorter thanks to the fact that I managed to complete another four trades over the past few weeks.  Trading has been an excellent way to purge these lists and leave my finances in tact for the pursuit of items for my major projects.

Speaking of the major project portion of my collection, only 17 cards made their way into my hands since my last update, a far cry from the more than 30 that I highlighted last month.

Despite the smaller number, there’s actually some pretty impressive stuff (to me at least) included in that lot. 

I’ll admit right up front that I only purchased five of those cards, with my dad spending his own money on the other dozen that came through the door at a small card show he’s been attending lately.

Perhaps his financial commitment is something I should be considering in this whole financial self-sufficiency thing I keep talking about, but that’s a discussion for another day.

Many of the more impressive additions that I just mentioned are thanks to him and they’re included in the scans below.

Of the cards pictured above, the only ones that I bought were the 2006-07 Artifacts Bronze of Brendan Bell, the three blue bordered cards from the various pieces of my 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces project, and the 2006-07 SP Game Used Spectrum parallel /25 of Joe Thornton.

All of them are fairly difficult to come by in their own right (the least rare being numbered out of 50), but they pale in comparison to a Lemieux autograph from the Cup, a quad jersey card featuring Gretzky, Messier, Lemieux & Yzerman, a Thornton Black Diamond parallel /10, or the Thornton UD Black card.

With the Toronto Spring Sports Card and Memorabilia Expo coming up on Friday, I fully expect next month’s Want List Wednesday/Project Progress Report Combo to have a pretty significant number of additions to the collection to show off.

Hopefully the newly updated want list you see below will be shorter in a few days time as a result, but if you have anything you see below, please feel free to get in touch anyway.

Keep my player collections in mind as well (Mario Lemieux, Jeremy Roenick, Sergei Samsonov, Joe Thornton, Daniel Tkaczuk, and Steve Yzerman).  I don’t list everything I need simply due to the volume of the lists, but I’d be happy to hear what you might have for me.

Just post a comment, email me at bb_bros@hotmail.com, or connect on Facebook or Twitter!

Until Sunday, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
