And the checklist just got bigger....

A few days ago Paul, one of my readers, suggested that I add any players who were on the Disabled List the entire 1991 season to my set. I don't know why I hadn't thought of that. I had always seen on Todd Worrell's 1993 Topps card that he was on the DL in 1991, but never put it together that he didn't appear in the 1992 Topps set. Paul named off the players that were on the DL in 1991, and I'm glad he did, as I had assumed that most of those players had retired in 1990, when in fact, they had missed the 1991 season due to injury, and had played in 1992. While I was trying to do some research on what teams those players were on in 1991, I discovered that I had missed a few players on the San Francisco Giants. So, I added those players to the checklist, and decided (maybe against better judgement) to add "team combo" cards for the rest of the league (I had already made ones for the Cardinals, Padres, Giants, Angels, and Tigers). I will probably have to edit the back of the last checklist in the set, but that should be pretty simple. After all that, the full 1992 Topps set, including ones I have added will jump to 1339 cards.

I finished a few cards today, and now all of the All-Star cards are done, and every Postseason Highlight card is done except for the Minnesota Twins celebration card. I will probably start on the Award Winner cards next, then the League Presidents/Commissioner, Twins celebrations, and 2 final Season Highlight cards, then start on the team combo cards. I hope that won't take too long, because I really want to get back to work on all of the team sets. Thanks to Paul for helping me find some players that I missed, and thanks to everyone who reads my blog.
