And the 1960 set is DONE....or is it????
anyway back to the search for the Sandy Koufax.... no luck checking in till I get to one of the last booths.... well its not fair to say no luck.... there were a few full on book priced cards.... but hey I am a dumpster diver....I dont pay full book!!! and then in all its glory I found it and at a price I like for $29 the Sandy was all mine!!! My 1960 set is DONE!!! or is it? as I ask in the title.... I do have a bit of an issue.... for you see while I have all the cards for the set....I am not sure the set is done till the pages in the binder are full and well 2 of the cards cant go in the pages, the graded Mickey Mantle and Willie Mccovey cards I bought..... do I need to buy some ungraded cards to go in the binder or do I bust them out of the plastic prisons they are stuck in or do I say to heck with it and call it complete??? In talking with the dealer who sold me the Koufax.... he said he was would bust them from the graded jail and set them free to fill the pages and make it a complete set....and I am inclined to agree..... I also had a fellow collector emphatically say I was an idiot for even thinking of uncasing those 2 cards for they are in high quality PSA graded cases and not some also ran fly by night scam grading company case..... any thoughts?
Oh I am writing all of this to keep my self from thinking of the next 72 hours or so of freezing cold that is awaiting....not fun times at all....
