One of my first processes is after busting a box of cards, I try to put together the base set. If I complete it, that goes into a white count box. If it's partially completed and one I want to finish, that goes off to the side of the desk. If it's one far away or one that's none of interest to me, well, that gets broken down into 35 different piles. I am not kidding on that either and will do a post on my sorting breakdown soon as well.
For those sets I want to try to complete and finish, I write down my numbers to try and locate who is missing. So when I was doing my sorting from 1999 Collectors Edge 1se Place break, I used the checklist to write down who I was missing for an easier search.
It made me realize how much easier it was to have the checklist right in hand instead of having to Google the entire internet searching for one and taking the time to either print off a list or just writing down my needs from there.
Simply put, I miss checklists in my card packs.
I think it's also a good closing point in a set to have those checklists at the end. It's like a final chapter to a great book. The only thing I didn't like about finding the checklists is when companies in the 90's would turn them into parallels to. It kinda felt like you skipped a hit. Actually, this checklist pictured above is a perfect example as it's a Gold Ignot parallel.
So who else is with me in the bring back the checklists protest? Comment below!
