Missing In Action

I may have written about this before. But if I did, it was just casual. Off the cuff. Not a great deal of certainty behind it.
That has changed.
I've been robbed.
Well, that may be a bit harsh. But bottom line, I'm missing some stuff. Who knows what happened.
Awhile ago I moved. I rounded up some of my larger friends, and they brought some of theirs. In a morning, I went from one side of the city to the other.
I'm an obsessive mover. When packing, each box gets numbered, and then put into a notebook with an inventory of it's contents. It makes unpacking SO much easier.
My wife misplaced the notebook.
It happens.
But what it did was not give me that absolute certainty of what was unpacked.
After all of the essentials found their new homes, it came time for the rest of the stuff. My cards being part of that.
And dang it if I swear a box of it was missing. I'd look for a certain card, or a set, a binder, and it wouldn't be there. Now, like some of you may understand, that isn't news. Sometimes I can't find a card I had 10 minutes ago.
So I didn't think too much of it at the time, although it nagged at me in the back of my mind.
Fast forward .....
Over the past little bit we've been doing some slight renovations. Painting and the like. What that has forced me to do was consolidate my cards into one room. And I've now gone through all of it. Every box. Every binder. I had no idea I had so much crap. But what I did prove is that some of it is missing.
And I'm quite ticked. I have no idea what happened. I do know I had the stuff at my last residence as I scanned quite a lot of it into Zistle.
Among the missing... a complete NRMT set of 1981-82 OPC. And a box of early '80's OPC... from '80/81 to '83/84.
So that means my consective run of complete OPC sets is now.... well.... non consecutive.
I tried putting another set together from another box, but I'm about 116 cards short. And it's now EX condition.
Wayne here is one of the poorer condition cards. Love that Titan stick. I had one of those. Good times.

I can't live like this. I must have my consecutive. My precious!

If any of you have any 81/82 OPC, I implore, nay beg you... help a brother out. I've put this set onto my wantlist page, but with the now gaping hole in my set run, I need to finish this.
It's funny how it didn't bother me until I realized it, and now it's all I see.

I'll put my needs here.... but it probably won't be updated except on my actual Wantlist page.

  1. That really stinks. I think you should look at the Hockey hottie of the week. She could have all those cards hidden away in her top.

  2. I'll keep your list with me in my travels and pick up whatever I find.

    In other news, I have a card for you that I'll be sending when I'm not quite so lazy.
