I know my post yesterday made it sound like I hated sorting cards. That's not true.
I like sorting cards. Pre-1980's cards. Most Topps cards. Donruss is ok. Fleer...not too bad. Early Upper Deck...sure, I love it.
The problem is when you get to the years when there are so many different sets by so many different companies that it gets almost impossible to sort without looking at the tiny little trademark year on the back. So many inserts, so many brands.....I'm think I'm going blind.
Did I mention Bowman? Don't even get me started on Bowman.
I've sorted and updated my checklists and have about 4000 cards to put into my master set boxes. Yea, that's a metric ton of dupes, but I really had a good time knocking off a bunch of needs and being able to mark about 20 more team sets complete.
Next week, I'll be integrating the recently sorted cards into those master set boxes. I'll also be doing a randomization for some of the people who were involved in my crazy Ginter red ink postings. I should have about 10-12 packages ready to mail next week.
Thank God it's Friday. I need a weekend to recover from all this terribly difficult work. (He said with a smile.)
