Two things on the plate for today...

I've got two things on the plate for this afternoon and hopefully I'll get to both of them.

First I wanna go through the package from Nachos Grande that's gotten me to within 18 cards of completing my 1987 Topps set. I'm excited to be so close to knocking this thing out. So look for that a little later.

Second, I've been thinking about this for a while now, but Dayf's post on another 1990s Braves farovite pushed me over the edge. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I now want to become a Steve Avery player collector. Probably won't turn out to be a very big collection, but aside from Chipper I can't really think of another Brave who's career I followed as closely.

It looks like there are, including variations, 261 Steve Avery cards. I'm not really interested, at least not right now, in collecting all the variations, so that number is probably closer to 230 actually.

I don't have a very good start on it, but it's something to work on. I'm going through all my cards today to see what I've got and I'll throw up some scans later.

The Steve Avery idea isn't a priority and I don't really care how long it takes, it just seems like a fun idea.
