As most set collectors know, the Heritage set is an annual beast. The set is 500 cards strong with the last 75 being short prints that fall one in three packs. I bought 3 hobby boxes, a blaster and a few random packs and still found myself a bunch of base cards and tons of SPs away from the set. With some trades from some great bloggers and a few singles from the LCS I have now put the non-SP set to rest. I still have want list of 37 SPs (including all 6 Giants of which I need 2 of each!) so I have at least reached the half way point. I am still working on some of the insert sets as well so if you have inserts and SPs for trade, drop me a note and help me out.
I thought I would share all the Heritage goodness I have received in trades so far from 4 great traders.
First up is a sizable trade with a reader, Martin. Martin has a non-sports card blog he was kind enough to share with me about Christmas music. Apparently there is a pretty nice community of Christmas music blogs. We are a big fan of Christmas music in the ARPSmith household so I am going to have to check it out.
Next up is a trade with Ben the co-author of the Baseball Card Blog:
Next up is a package from my friend from north of the border Douglas of Sportscards From the Dollar Store.
Finally a one card PWE from Johnny at Cards from the Quarry.
Martin, Ben, Douglas and Johnny thank you so much for the help on my 2014 Heritage quest!
