A couple of years ago I started this blog to document my collecting experiences, but I must admit... one of the coolest things about being a blogger are the opportunities to interact with one another.
I recently completed a trade with a fellow Donruss Puzzle collector, who sent me four puzzles that I needed for my Donruss Puzzle Project. And the only thing he wanted in return were my extra 1983 Mickey Mantle and 1984 Ted Williams puzzle pieces. Not complete sets... just starter sets of the final two puzzles he needs for his collection. The generosity that flows through the community never ceases to amaze me. Four completed puzzles for two partial puzzles?
Jack... if you're reading this. Thanks for the trade! You definitely helped me out and I owe you big time. If I come across anymore of these puzzle pieces, I'll ship them your way.
Okay... let's check out my four newest puzzles:
1983 Donruss Ty Cobb
1984 Donruss Duke Snider
1985 Donruss Lou Gehrig
1987 Donruss Roberto Clemente
The Clemente was missing the fourth puzzle card that contained puzzle pieces #10, 11, & 12. But the final piece should be arriving sometime next week. So here's where my project currently stands:
