  1. These O-Pee-Chee pack breaks are terrible - The set I think was 500 cards and you only get 3 regular cards in this pack - geez

  2. It's a 600 card set, and yes, I'm in a bad string of bad packs. 5 cards per pack like when I started isn't too bad, but lately I've hit the 20th anniv retrospective and other inserts that take away from getting the base cards I want.

    I may have to buy another box to continue working on the set because it appears my 3 boxes may leave me about 150 cards short if the collation is any good. 150 cards is a little much to finish it from singles, but I"ll have to check out the economics after I finish the 3rd box and see if it's more economical to buy singles and guarantee no duplicates or if another box makes more sense.
