2019 is off to a strong start in terms of progress on completing my vintage Calbee sets. I wish I had thought to make that a new years resolution when I had the chance.
I picked up three more cards for my 1987 Calbee set, the first that I have scored since last May. This leaves me with just 15 cards to go out of 382 in the set. Tantalizingly close!!
The card on the right (367) is of Kaname Yashiki and commemorates his leading the league in stolen bases (for the second time in a row as the back of the card says). That card has been in my crosshairs for a long time as it was the last of the gold-bordered cards (which feature league leaders and award winners) that I needed.
So my updated wantlist for the 1987 Calbee set is now:
So close....yet so far. I've been in the "home stretch" on this set for about 3 years now, as the last few cards are always the hardest to find. Maybe this year I'll get these? We'll see!
