Is Anybody Buying These?


I want to start out by saying I absolutely love the idea behind this set.  The cards have all the vital information from every game played in the 2008 season.  The score is displayed nicely on the front with a newspaper style headline written underneath.  On the back is the box score, date, divisional standings, and a little summary of the game.   With that said, the three packs of these that I bought will be the last three packs of this stuff I buy.  I would love to have the complete season of the Cubs, but to do so I would have to buy a case of this stuff.   The complete base set consists of 4,890 cards.  I guess this set is geared toward that one guy who had nothing better to do than complete the Yankee Stadium Legacy set.  Complete seasons are going anywhere from $80 to $150 depending on how well your team did this year.  The cards are great, but I can’t see spending $150 on a team set.  Then again I really want one.  There are a handful of these cards that I must have, but the chances of pulling them out of packs are horrible.  Even trying to find singles on Ebay is going to next to impossible.  If by an off chance anyone out there does buy these and pulls the Cubs home opener, Cubs Vs Astros  Sept 1, or Zambrano’s No hitter, I’d be willing to make a nice trade in your favor!
