Today, April 28th of 2014, the latest incoming shipment from COMC put us over the mark. We have finally reached 3000 unique Griffeys!
Here's the card of honor:
|2008 SPx Ken Griffey, Jr. American Hero #KG43 #/725, we salute you.|
This guy. It's no surprise to me that it ended up being one of these 2008 SPx American Hero insert cards. I've been powering through the checklist when I can find each card I need for a dollar or less. I'm getting pretty far, too, as you can now see in The Beast.
This shipment brought us to 7,542 total Griffeys with a total of 3,025 unique cards. That's a duplicate ratio of 2.493. The stats of the shipment were 84 added, 76 new, and a dupe ratio of 1.105. That's the lowest yet from a sort. There were a few stragglers mixed in there with the COMC purchases, so it wasn't a perfect 1.00, but it's still a massive step in the right direction.
You may have noticed that I blacked out the number of this particular card. That's because in honor of this milestone I figure it's time to have a giveaway. Winner gets a prize package of cool stuff assembled by yours truly. Here's the poop:
Guess the serial number of this card. Closest without going over (yeah, it's one of those) wins. Hint: the answer is less than 726.
Comment below with your guess. I'm going to let this one roll until Friday at midnight CST. If you are venturing a guess and we haven't traded or communicated via e-mail or anything, go ahead and e-mail me at tjv504 at gmail dot com with your deets. Good luck!
|Don't look for an imprint of the serial number here - I checked. It's clean.|
