As I started making my want list for 2013 Topps I realized I still had quite a few loose ends to tie up with 2012 sets. So what is a collector to do, go on a Sportlots shopping spree!
I usually search our sellers that have many of the cards I need to keep shipping costs down and I did pretty well this time. Here are some of the goods I picked up.
First up were the last 6 stickers I needed for the 2012 Topps Sticker set:
Next up is Topps Archive:
Not counting the ridiculous Bryce Harper SSP, I am down to needing 4 SPs and 3 Reprints to put this one to rest. The Combos and In Action cards are also on my want list and I would love to finish them but they don't seem to be too plentiful in the marketplace or with traders.
Next we have 2012 Topps Update:
I am down to just needing 1 1987 Mini, 1 Golden Great and 1 Golden Moment card to finish this one off. So close!
And the last set, Allen & Ginter:
So let's recap my 2012 set building accomplishments:
Topps Series 1 with all inserts - Complete
Topps Series 2 with all inserts - Complete
