6477 to go!

Chasing the impossible?

Last year I got a few cards in a lot I bought and decided to start collecting the set. After a bit of research I realised there was 6,742 of them! Had I made a bad decision? Am I chasing the impossible?

If you don't know already it's the 2008 Upper Deck Yankee Stadium Legacy set with a card for every home game ever played at the old Yankee Stadium. The cards were inserted into other Upper Deck baseball card sets during 2008 and 2009.

Following a conversation with a friend I decided to apply some targets to it otherwise I might die before completing the set. So I've set a target of completing it by the time I'm 65 and on that basis need to get a minimum of 30 cards per month between now and then.

This months delivery has arrived and contains 33 cards so at this rate I'll complete it when I'm 64.

  1. Awesome, trying to do the same, already for two rate is like 2 a month so I clearly need to step it up as the chances of me getting past 150 years of age are probably slim :-))
