Card(s) of the Day - 2015 Topps Heritage : The Full Set
I have various projects that are more than likely to be completed at some point in the future but I am now undertaking one that will either take my whole life to finish or never will as it has 500 cards in it.
I have moved away from acquiring autographs on baseballs as most of you know and have moved over to cards and pictures but watching more and more people getting full sets signed seemed like a huge task but a fun one at the time. I have a handful of friends that love to do IP (in person) and TTM (through the mail) for sets like these and I am finally going to join them. I wanted a set that contained mostly people that could be tracked down at some point in the future and cards that would easily handle a blue sharpie. With most sets now with some type of gloss that could affect the pen I steered myself to Topps Heritage for a couple of reasons. One, it does not have the thick gloss on the cards, two a lot of people do this set so hopefully I can trade with some of you out there and we can help each other out.
As you can see from the center card feature Joc Pederson there are quite a few that have two players (even some with 3) which makes this set even harder to complete. Will I ever get close to acquiring all the autographs on the 500 cards? To be honest probably not but I sure as hell am going to try and if I can get 300 I would be highly impressed with myself and consider it an accomplishment.
So with that I start a journey/project that will take years to "complete" and if you have any cards or tips for me with TTM please reach out and contact me. Maybe we can scratch each other's back.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
