Well after putting the cards in the new binder, we found out that we are about 71 cards short including the Autographed Rookies.

The Wife’s view of the new set:

When the cards arrived today in a brown box, I resisted the urge to open it until I came back from Walmart with a few Orioles items for my husband which all went into a bag together. As soon as my husband came home, he started opening the boxes. I was amazed at the quality of the cards. Baseball cards have come a long way. The cards are very sturdy and I like the shiny appearance. My favorite letterman autograph is the Michael Bowden. It was nice to not get very many duplicate base cards either. Can’t wait to finish this set and start the Allen & Ginter set!

On a side note, I ordered these boxes from Dave and Adam Card World, and I must say I am really disappointed with their Customer Service. I contacted them about the shipping information and tracking info and I never received any of the tracking information. I feel the Customer Service department was unhelpful and rude. But the product arrived in good condition.

    I love the look of these cards–I may have to break down and buy a few packs. If you’re looking to get rid of the Alex Gordon printing plate (as part of a trade, or sale), I’m sure that Greg at Lake Effect Cards (groggcards.blogspot.com) would die to have it and would give you the moon for it. Keep up the great work on your site!

    Hey, I love the Grady. Would you be willing to trade it? I’ve got a bunch of Orioles to trade. I’ll get them together and let you know what I have for you.
