A personal goal reached

Post by vampicker » Thu May 19, 2022 4:00 pm

For several years, I've been working on actually completing a standard Top 100 set. It's a tall order to catch or pass any of the four sets ahead of me in the SSDC registry. However, the last piece I needed for a complete set just showed up. Some of the components are genuinely rare, while others have given me a new appreciation of condition rarity. I may chase some upgrades as they appear in the market, but for now the deed is done.

No small feat! Well done. I've got a looooong way to go to get there but I'm marching slowly toward that finish line.

Congrats again,

Gary

I have several sets working. The next focus will likely be on the standard Top 50 Peace set.

I also just started a WOW! set. I'm already better than halfway done and in 7th. The last couple of pieces are real nut busters though

Congratulations John! Its a tough goal as many will attest.
My standard top 100 set is named "hopeless endeavor" as it always seems to be that way for me.
