Ticking Boxes

This is called maintenance mode. 

With the weather deciding to be crummy and a lot of things just procrastinated away when I feel like doing things like going outside, it was probably a good time to get back into sorting through all my clutter and work on filling some sets (both for me and for others.) A lot of times, trade packages like the one I got last month from Bubba's Bangin' Batch of Baseball Bits are the most rewarding but toughest to find words to write about. Like myself, he is a collector of all things Allen & Ginter, only he does a far superior job at it based on his want lists. Packages like these may just be ticking off boxes on a theoretical checklist, but it's pretty satisfying once these things are bindered and complete. Here's a few bits from last year's A&G set and this year's Heritage...

A 2016 World Series participant!

A Cyclops!

A... uh... search engine!

A tomahawk, one of the symbols of Matt's favorite baseball team.

A Kluber!

You're right... these are always tough. "Ticking boxes" is what so much of the hobby is about though! :D

Thanks again for the trade!

My first thought was the kind of ticking box that turns out to be a bomb that destroys your want lists...
