    Time off from work during the summer

    As I type this message I am in the process of seeing my hand specialist on Thursday to give me the green light to return to work again. I haven't been to work since June 13th. I had my wrist worked on the 18th of June & been recovering getting work comp during my time away. Also during my time away I have gone to visit fellow SCF member @LoQtus in July for a mini Vacation had a blast going to different card shops,antique shops & various other places in the Maryland,Pennsylvania,Washington DC area. Picking up some great things for my PC as well older sets I had the process of remaking for the 2nd and in some cases 3rd time around. I am a few cards short of completing my 2nd & 3rd 1982 Fleer sets as well my 2nd 1983 Fleer set. I also started a `71/`72 Topps Hockey set which I can't wait to complete only 18 cards remain on that. So while I recovering around my home state of Michigan I would frequent card shops along the way as well antique shops to keep myself from going bored while my Girlfriend was away out of town or at her work. On 1 rare day off from her work we stopped at an antique shop I picked up a couple 5000ct boxes that had some early 1980s Fleer baseball that sparked my interest in remaking the for mentioned sets above. I was planning on just doing 1 1982 Fleer set but Loqtus saw a cheap binder minus the Ripken RC of the 1982 Fleer thinking it was a complete set minus the Ripken I bought it for $5 I later got 3 Ripken RCs for $10 ea. So what's this post about anyways other than telling you about my rehabbing well in 1 of the boxes it had some 1985s Now I am thinking do I go ahead & remake it again for the fun or do it down the road after I get back to work thats where you chime in help me pick start away or wait. So I look forward to seeing what you vote for as well any comments you might want to say about why you chose your choice. If someone wants the 3rd set of the 1982 Fleer let me know what you have to offer for it. I will not be breaking it up for individual cards or team sets I am still trying to finish it off as well and been going to different places that I know of in my area where I can pick up the missing singles still lacking for the sets. So thats the reason why I was not able to attend the 39th annual National in Cleveland this last week. I am looking forward to going to the 40th next year with Loqtus & anyone who might like to carpool from Michigan either fly in (HINT HINT!!!!! @pwaldo @spuds1961 @eric51 @dave Gollick anyone else in the circle of friends that are listed in my friends area) for 2 1/2 days in Chicago cause I want to have a blast next year. So thanks for reading & I hope to hear from your vote and sound off as well.

    Make another set. Sooner or later these sets are going to take off and you'll regret not doing another. A good year with some good rookies in it.

    Can't go wrong with '80s wax. And the 1985 Fleer design is pretty sharp, isn't it?
