The completion of these sets has given me new motivation and inspiration to finish off some additional 2012 sets. I suspect that Topps Update will be the last set I work on this year and the base will most likely be finished with the purchase of a Jumbo box so it will be only inserts for that set. Although I saw that there will be gold parallels of all 3 series cards so there will be lots of Giants /2012 to track down.
Check out my Set Want List and let's make some trades. I would much rather trade for the cards than have to reach out and buy them. At the time of this post, here is a summary of what I am looking for, the details including card numbers on the link.
2012 Ginter - 1 Base card, 7 SPs, 45 What's in a Name inserts, 4 Sketches and 6 Historical Turning Points.
2012 Archives - 9 SPs (I am taking a stand and not counting the Bryce Harper card as part of the set), 1 Cloth Sticker, 2 Deckle Edge, 1 Sticker, 1 3-D, 14 Reprints and I may go after the In Actions and Combos if I can make some headway
2012 Chrome - 12 Base cards
2012 Topps Stickers - 30 Stickers
2012 Heritage - 22 SPs
2012 Opening Day - 3 Elite Skills inserts, 1 Fantasy Squad, 9 Mascots, and 7 Stars Inserts
It would be so cool to finish all of these sets by Year End and go into the new collecting season without a set to work on. That would give me more time to focus on the blog and work out trades with everyone. If you think you can help, even with one card, take a look at my list and let's deal.
