All Time Set: The Dromedary Collection
GPA with Top6.270
I am retiring this set on 12/11/06, with a rank of #5 on the current finest list. It was a long, tough slog to build this set in this condition, but once I got my GPA to 6.0, I found myself buying cards based on the grade, and not on the merits of the cards themselves. I am a collector and not a cert buyer, and I searched high and low, card by card, to find specimens that were nicer than the cards they were replacing. When I started seeing 7s with paper loss, or 8s with mashed-down corners, I decided it was time to stop playing the registry game. I still think that mine is as beautiful and consistent a set as you'll find in the hobby, but I also think that once you start looking at the grade and not the card, you start losing perspective. I will continue to upgrade my set and track my progress at www.swingbattaswing.com. If you have anything in EX-MT or better, please get in touch with me through that site.
