A completed shelf full of Topps complete sets!
This was a goal I set for myself back in January (I'll revisit all of my goals tomorrow). I wanted to get all of my Topps sets into binders for easy access and viewing.
Now that school is out for the summer (I love being a teacher!) I've got some extra time on my hands. I had 20 years worth of cards to get into binders. I worked through one or two a day while a ballgame was on in the background.
And now, they're done! The joy of a completed shelf!
My earliest ones are on the top (that' 1969 - 1974, '75-'79 are on the top of another shelf). Then working down, are the 80's,
and 2000's. I've got space for ten more years on the bottom.
In addition to the cards, each binder has a couple lists in them.
One list has all the players in alphabetical order. The other has the players listed by team. These make it very easy to find a player's card. If I want to find George Brett's 1987 card, a quick scan of the list shows me to go to #400. Quick and easy!
And if you want to know what other Royals were featured in 1987, here's what a team page looks like:
It feels good to have one goal accomplished. Tomorrow, I'll look at how I'm doing with my other goals.
