Hey Chris
Before you know it you will be at a 1,000 and then you might have all the Mets some day
Nice job well done
I think 600-650 is a reasonable goal for this year, and maybe eventually as many as 750. It starts to get tougher after that, with guys from other countries who are hard to track down, or deceased players. It's nice that I only have to go back to 1962, though, so there aren't that many dead guys. (Yet.)
Uh oh. I need to step it up. I have a bunch of customs that I'm waiting to print; I guess I should get some more card stock on the way home today.
