...this card of Theo. Not only did I get to complete the set, but I got the card for free!
And it wasn't a fellow blogger or a Cubs collector that helped me out, it was one of the parents at my school.
The mom is a baker at an Aunt Millies factory in a town about 30 miles east of me. When she stopped in the office a couple weeks ago dropping off some back to school paperwork, I told her I had an odd question for her. I laid out the Aunt Millies story. She hadn't ever seen the cards at her plant (they do buns, and the cards were in loaves of bread), but she offered to look into it for me.
Well, she's one of those moms that gets things done. Two days ago she was back in the office, card in hand. It took her a couple phone calls to get to the right person, but she made the connection and got me the card. In fact, the person she spoke with said that they had some extra cards made just for people like me...looking for one last card to complete the set.
So that's one more oddball set to check off the list as completed. Tomorrow I'll have all eleven of the cards, plus an odditiy with my Theo card. Those of you that already have some of the Aunt Millies cards, look very carefully and see if you can spot the difference between my card and most of the others.
