Best Binder Page Update: My First Change
I’ve been really excited to see everybody’s best binder pages over the past few weeks. I think they offer a fun slice of what each blogger’s collection is all about. There’s been a lot of surprising selections and a lot of not-so-surprising ones from everyone. The whole thing has been a blast.
When I posted my Best Binder Page last month I remarked that…well, here it is: “For example, if I ever got a hold of a Donruss Crusade Purple Griffey, I would most certainly update my page to show it. This thing's not written in stone.”
Well, guess what?
As fate would have it, I was able to land one of the whitest of white whale Griffeys just weeks after writing that sentence. I wasn’t expecting that to happen, but it did. It’s providence. Now an update is in order.
Here’s my new Best Binder Page:
I chose the 1998 E-X2001 Destination Cooperstown insert to be replaced by the Purple Crusade. It was a tough call. They came out the same year and had identical (evidently) print runs; but the Purple Crusade is just such an icon among collectors of 90’s inserts, and it’s the exact one I’ve wanted since I first learned about Crusade. There’s no way it isn’t going on this page. No way.
That’s it - short and sweet today. Thanks for reading!
