While I was working on some other stuff, I determined I couldn't put off the hockey packs that Ryan had sent me sometime earlier this year...I don't even remember exactly when. I wrote about them in September but they were in my possession long before then, and they weren't the first box of packs he'd sent me this year.
It turned out that most were NOT scanned yet!)
And those are just the ones I can get easy access to. There's more. And that's not even counting the two boxes I've already scanned, one of which is shown in the linked post from September.
Some of the sets are technically not in my collection yet, because, while I have packs of them and have for a while now, I have not gotten any of the individual cards into my collection...to me it counts when I look at the card, not when the pack comes to me.
Some of them will surely make it into 2020 before they get opened...which, I guess from a certain point of view, means it took me 2 decades to open them...
The sad thing is, the scanning process is quick. For example, all 20 packs shown in the September post took only about 45 minutes to dust, scan, edit and label. I should be able to get them all done within one day. Why the heck did I wait so long???
And update: I got them all scanned, edited, and labeled by noon that day. And I took time out to try and clean some of the packs and have a meal. I ended up with 228 scans made.
Now that I've gotten all the stuff in the queue posted, stay tuned because something very exciting (to me) is coming next...and it's not another update on the Cardboard History Gallery, which I can tell by the lack of views and comments that nobody really cares about, LOL.
