MILESTONE TIME! 800 Unique Irbe Cards!
So, after not having updated my site for several months, I decided to update it and also update my card count. How surprised I was when my count went up by four to hit 802. I now own nearly 94% of Irbe's non-expo and non-1 of 1 cards, to go along with a lot of oddball and unlisted stuff.
A huge thanks goes out to Eddy in BC (for the free card), as well as Tim (TurcoCollector) for the recent help with some of my odder oddities in the Irbe collection.
I don't need pictures, I don't need a long story, I am just glad that I have finally passed another milestone with my collection. Despite my waining interest in cards in favor of the game-used memorabilia market, I am still glad that I still get excited with a new Irbe or Szuper card for my collection!
Ah heck, I feel charitable, here is a picture of my biggest two additions since last Irbe update!

Dual cut auto of Irbe/Vanbiesbrouck (#/1)
And for the record, I do hate these Leaf cards. All players are alive and there is no reason to make 1/1 cut autographs of them. Regardless, as much as I do not care for them, I am happy to own them.

I'd like to think my little odd-ball was number 800.........that is truly amazing, man. I look at my two-inch binder crammed with Marios and think to myself, "Self, you sure have alot of Marios. But don't get cocky now, Bruce has an EIGHT-inch binder stuffed full............."

I have two binders full of Irbe, as well as countless stuff on my walls, on and in my cupboards, on top of my computer desk, in my drawers, on my TV stand, and in my closets. If someone doesn't know who I collect when they come into my house, they have very poor observation skills.

Great job on all those cards. Now I know why it is so hard to find all those Irbe Between the Pipes cards! 1000 cards is just around the corner!Hidden Content
