42 More

These 42 Wallach cards arrived this week from two sellers on  I mentioned in the last post that I thought I had managed to knock of the 27 cards I needed to complete the 2018 Topps 1st Series, but as always seems to be the case, I found I'm still two cards short.  I must have ordered the wrong ones, missed them, or been sent the wrong ones.  I'll have a post on that later.

For now, I'll focus on the Wallach's these sellers had lingering in their respective inventories.  This isn't the most exciting assortment to ever cross my desk, but it's not the worst either.  The two 1986 Leaf are probably the highlights.  The 1992 Score Super Star is a sneaky scarce card.  I think I overlook how few I have because it's so similar to the 1992 Triple Play design.  The '92 Topps Gold are "Winners" and if you can't tell, those '93 Topps are Gold as well.  Finally there was a stray Brett Wallach for the taking, so I took it.  As far as Brett Wallach cards go, I'm not trying to "collect them all," but that doesn't mean I won't add more to my collection when the opportunity presents itself.

This group of cards also presented three statistical anomalies.  The '86 Topps and '86 Topps All-Star brought there respective totals to 300 and 600 total cards.  What were the odds of that happening?  These 42 cards also push my total count over 20,000 Wallach cards.  I'll break that down more in a future post.
