Crawling toward 800

My Tino collection is slowing way down lately. I haven't lost enthusiasm. It's quite the opposite.

I'm just rarely finding ones I need.

It still surprises me that there are base cards I need, but those are becoming fewer and fewer. In my last COMC order, I did snag a couple.

These two are from Pacific Invincible. The first is 1998 Pacific Invincible Gems of the Diamond. I definitely just bought the cheapest one on COMC and did not notice that it was off-center. I'm not a condition stickler, but it annoyed me that I didn't take a closer look.
Returning to Pacific Invincible for 1999, here's a base card I didn't own. The area behind Tino's head is transparent, which is kind of cool.
Lastly, I was missing this 2000 Topps Stars base card. Johnny recently sent me the metallic blue, and it made me realize I didn't even have the base.
With these three cards, I'm now at 789 Tinos. I'm getting there!

  2. You're getting really close to 800. That's a big accomplishment for someone who doesn't have many current release cards.

  3. We should make our own blogger version of Topps NOW. "Lost Collector makes 800"

    1. That would be a 1 of 1 since I'd be the only person to buy it.

  4. 800 is super impressive! Keep it up. As a Gwynn collector, I started slowing down at around the 800 mark. It's pretty much taken me 10+ years to cross the 1000 mark.
