The Heritage Will Roll Right In

2007 Bowman Heritage is one of those sets that just seems to go on forever. I think for every 10 cards or so that I acquire for the master set, I somehow need another 30 more. Contributing to the cause (maybe) was a fellow Cardinals fan at Way Off Base. His is one of about 20 trade packages I've been working on, but I've made a fair bit of progress in all things baseball card-related this afternoon, so it's looking more and more like I'll get caught up with trades in the next few days.

Will I end up at least attempting to overpay for Tulo on a fantasy team or two this year? You bet.

Here's a "no sig" version of Hunter Pence, one of the only remaining somewhat marketable players on the Astros roster. Heck, their website features a big picture of Michael Bourn, who can barely hit the ball past the pitcher's mound.

I'm not sure it was a great idea for me to try and collect all of the thick foil cards considering there's as many of them as the base set, but I'm doing it anyway. Here's the future Hall of Famer Maddux in his stint with San Diego.

I'll never get tired of the hilarious expression on Josh Hamilton's face in this set.

I guess I missed that you were building a master set of this. So what does the master set include? Are you trying to build every parallel of every card outside of the 1/1's?

I guess by my loose definition of "master set" I just mean I'm collecting all of the variations, the foil parallels (with variations) and the prospects set. I'm not going after autos or jerseys.
