As most readers of this blog or followers of my Twitter account know, I love 90's Spx and have been trying to knock down every set/card I can from every sport.
It's not as easy as it sounds.
I have so far completed:
1996, 1997, 1998 Spx football base sets
1996 Spx racing
1997 Spx racing
1996 Spx hockey
1997 Spx baseball
1997-1998 Spx basketball
1996 Spx football Tribute cards and the Tribute autographs
And am close to these ones,
1997 Spx hockey (13 away)
1996 Spx baseball (13 away)
1996 Spx basketball (need just the MJ)
1996 Spx hockey Holoview Heroes (just a couple remain)
So there is still much, much more to go with inserts, autographs and parallels.
Today is one of those parallel sets, this is 1998 Spx football Steel which fell 1:1 packs in a three card pack. I found a 42 card lot, with 50 in the total set, for $3.24. Yes, $3 and 24 cents. That's a steal.
The lot also included a lot of big names as well.
I was shocked that this ended so cheaply and that I was able to close out most of this parallel set in one swoop.
Now I just got to find the last 8 cards to get this completed and will update those numbers on here soon.
