Please don’t think for a minute that I’m complaining, because I’m not. I just forgot how much work went into creating the checklists needed to get my new player collections up and running.
Building the template in Excel is the easy part. The time consuming part is compiling the list of cards. And even though I know exactly what I want to have in these player collections, obtaining the needed data to build my master checklist involves quite a bit of research.
I try to get it right the first time. Using tools like Ebay and Sportslots.com gets me very close to where I need to be. But from there the task becomes more of a challenge to ensure that each and every card that fits the criteria of my ‘PC’ is met. Thankfully, I can rely on the Internet for most of my answers…
As of right now, my Jim Palmer checklist is completed. My Darryl Strawberry list is 90% of the way there, and I still have Greg Maddux and Eddie Murray to go.
Stay tuned because I am ready to shop. Once these four checklists are complete you can expect quite a bit of activity from me as I jump right into my new player collections!!!
Man I’m ready to shop!!!
