So as you know from your unwaning attention to this blog that I have recently pulled off two trades that significantly helped me with my Lineage Project. As I sat down this evening to post about the trades I decided that it would be good for me to break down just how much of the collection is complete. A couple hours later and I've finally broken it all down and can report pre trade what percentage of the Lineage Project I had complete. This way I can report the total impact of these two trades and show how they've helped me. I have yet to tally the cards I've gotten, so even I'm not sure just how much these two trades have helped, but it gives me something to look forward to, as well as something to lament. Did I mention I hate math?
So here is how the Lineage set breaks down.
Topps Lineage Base Set and Parallels = 800 Total Cards (200 Base, 200 Platinum, 200 Diamond, 200 1975 minis)
Total Base Set Completed = 261/800 32.6% Complete
Diamond = 20/200
Platinum = 21/200
1975 Mini = 20/200
Base = 200/200
Topps Lineage Insert Set = 164 Total Cards (20 Giant Box Toppers, 50 Cloth Stickers, 25 Stand Ups, 25 Venezuelan, 25 3Ds, 19 Rookie All Stars)
Topps Lineage Insert Sets Completed = 41/164 25% Complete
Cloth Stickers = 9/50
Stand Ups = 7/25
3Ds = 5/25
Venezuelan = 7/25
Rookie All Stars = 10/19
Giants = 3/20
Total Master Set = 302/964 Cards 31.3%
But Woog... Didn't you say you were building a Master Master Set?
Too True buddy...
I also want to try and complete all the relic cards from this set as well. Here is how they break down.
Topps Lineage Mini Relics = 5/90 Cards
Topps Giant Box Topper Relics = 0/20 Cards
Topps Jumbo Relics = 0/25 Cards
Total Relic Master set = 5/135 Cards 3.7%
Total Master Master Set = 307/1099 Cards or 27.9% Complete
Note: I haven't included autographs in this project. I will collect them and update the autograph check list as I get them, but just don't feel like reporting on them. Maybe if I collect all of them I'll call it a "Master Master Master Set"
Stay tuned for the follow up post...
