That post was my second attempt to finalize the checklist.
Today's is attempt number three.
Thanks to the comments that were left on the first Extra Eyeballs post, I became aware of a....
....Jacque Jones Inkredible card from 2006 plus a card for....
...Steve Clevenger from 2012 Bowman Sterling.
The Clevenger card sent me on another quest. I knew there were other marginal players I missed, so I grabbed my media guide and started searching ebay for almost every player that wasn't in my collection. I found several...
The first one I found was easy....
....Brett Jackson, also played briefly in 2012 and was included in Bowman Sterling.
I got lucky with....
I have no idea how I missed....
....Matt Garza. Shame on me! Missing the next guy....
....Steve Smyth was more understandable. Smyth pitched in eight games for the 2002 Cubs and was included in the 2002 Studio Private Signings set.
And how could I forget....
....Roberto Novoa. He pitched in 115 games over the 2005 and 2006 season and had a 2005 Pro Sigs card.
Finally, there was....
....Michael Wuertz, who had a couple different certified autographs during his time with the Cubs between 2004 and 2008. This card is from 2004 Ovation Spotlight Signatures.
With these additions, the checklist has grown from 76 cards when I first thought I was done, to 91 cards. And it wouldn't surprise me at all if it's not done yet.
Here is my latest list....keep your eyes pealed for any other players I'm missing! Is there a "Thank You For the Extra Eyeballs Part 3" in my future??
