Well in the 24 hours since that post went up I created a checklist page which I've linked to here and on the side of my page.
I've explained (hopefully well) about how everything I have has been crossed off and that everything I need hasn't been crossed off yet.
I should also point out that I've only crossed off cards I have in hand. Which is to say that I will not cross off cards if I've shipped them out as TTM requests. For example, as of the moment I'm writing this post I've sent requests to a few Yankees players who were in the 1979 Topps set and I sent their 1979 Topps cards. In this case I technically don't have them in hand anymore and because of the risk of them not coming back, I'll leave them uncrossed until either I get a new copy or until the request comes back.
And yesterday I mentioned that I'd address OPC and the Burger King issues another time. Well it's another time so I'll address them.
Regarding OPC, I don't really plan on building the set (unsigned) until this first basic set is finished. Nor do I really see myself getting as many OPC's signed either. I probably won't turn them away but I won't really go after them for a while.
While I was putting together my checklist, I found out that the Bake McBride I had signed was actually one of the cards in the 1979 Topps Burger King Philadelphia Phillies set. Don't I feel silly now.
Anyway my stance on the BK sets is like the OPC set. I might collect it (unsigned) but not until I finish the main set first.
On a final note, I think I should make it clear (because in my original post I clearly wasn't) that I'd prefer to collect/trade for unsigned 1979 Topps cards as my main mission is to finish the 1979 Topps set in general. And also I want to get the autographs myself if I can. Unless it's a signed 1979 Topps Thurman Munson. Then by all means offer it to me lol ;). That said, it's not like I'm going to turn away signed copies of 1979 Topps cards either if the people sending them are 100% okay with it.
So anyway. Thanks to all of you for your kind words and support when I decided to get this project going.
As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).
