If any of you have spent any time scanning your collection, you know that scanning Topps' Finest/Chrome cards is not much fun...with about the only less fun kind of card to scan being mirror foils. (and by scan, I mean the full process of editing to make the scan match the card in hand)
So why the heck did I just scan 5 consecutive pages of Chrome cards and top it off with a page of mirror foils, too?
I don't know. But I do know I'm NOT going to sort the next box before I start scanning it, putting off the Chromes and foils to the end. I still have lots of mirror foils waiting...but they will continue to wait.
As I progress through scanning the box, each time I hit 9 Chrome/Finest/Bowman's Best cards I will do a page of them. At least, that's the theory. Knowing me, I may not actually stick to that.
Well, at least I do know why I did the page of mirror foils. I received a RAOK in the mail that included several of the 1998-99 Stadium Club Transactions subset cards and I wanted to get them scanned so I could post them to the Database when I add them to my collection listing on there. So at least there's a reason for some of it!
Here is a screen cap of the cards I just scanned and edited. It was made somewhat better by the fact that I did a page and a half before I went to bed, and did the rest later. Not much better...but somewhat.
Can you spot the error I made in labeling? Hint: It's been corrected by time I screencapped the above image.

As you might be able to tell, this box I was working on was heavy on Michael Jordan, Richard Hamilton, Kobe Bryant and Nick Van Exel. My collection is sorted somewhat by player at the moment, although I kind of tried to mix it up some when I sorted the entire collection (or at least what I was able to find at the time) in December 2013.
Now that I've moved past these, I am working on scanning the non-foil 1998-99 Stadium Club cards that I also got in the mail, back to editing!
