As a straight up baseball guy (who briefly dabbled in football and basketball-don't know where those went), it's fascinating to me what people collect. Nice list. V3

Set #1 is my favorite. I have 25 of those cards and hopefully will get the whole set one day. Great era of Monster Truck racing. Great list.

The trade with Billy for his last card to complete his 158th set was my first trade on the DB. Nice list Billy.

I had no idea that a Bill & Ted card set existed. Very cool!

The Marvel Universe cards...I wasn't ever into comics, but most of the boys in my class were collecting these cards, so I did as well. Everybody was trading and working on sets...and chasing those holograms!

Man, Billy! I get excited about basketball everytime I read a list of yours. I didn't see 90-91 Skybox or Hoops as completed. Are they, but just not logged in?

Dave, most excellent! 

Kin, still chasing those holograms myself!

Commish, I have not completed Skybox yet, but I did complete Hoops, I forgot to list it on here though!

It's surprising to me how very few of MY very few sets are in your list! In NASCAR, I saw 2010 Legends on the list. I pulled that whole set from one hobby box. 2009 Press Pass Racing, I still have an unopened factory set of that as a freebie from D&A Cardworld. 1996 UD Road to the Cup Racing, you just sent me the next to last card I need to complete that set about a month ago, but still missing that last one.

Where are the NBA sets that I actually own? I HAD the 92-93 sets of Skybox and UD until someone stole a bunch of my cards. I actually had almost every complete set released for NBA cards that season. I picked specific sets to replace the missing cards from those years and re-completed the full Stadium Club and Ultra sets. I kept/re-completed a few of the insert sets from various brands for that year too. BUT, I mostly traded away cards from anything that year to finish my Club and Ultra sets. I also have the 1994-95 Ultra set and the Series 2 set of 1997-98 Z-Force (loved that brand).

Back to the Marvel cards mentioned before, 1990 Impel Marvel Universe is the TOP non-sport set that I would love to complete! The holograms are RARE and I have 2 of them already. But I loved the design so much that I went after the 1991 Impel Marvel Universe set hard when it was released and it still took me 15 years to get the last two base cards I needed to complete that set. I completed the 5-card hologram set LONG before I completed the base set!!!

I haven't even mentioned my MLB/NFL complete sets or the other NASCAR sets I've completed. I generally don't go after complete sets, but when I get close enough or really like the set, I'll try to complete it.

That's the neat thing about the hobby, odds are nobody's collection will be exactly the same. If I had lots of money I'd complete a lot more sets, LOL!

I'm curious to see what my first completed Hockey set will be. I know I have two factory sets waiting to be opened so I could make it one of them pretty easily, but I don't want to do that just yet...

This is a very cool list Billy.  As very much a non-set collector I am always fascinated by the people who go after complete sets and how they go about competing them.  That is something I could never do, and that's ok.  My collection is on random, always has been always will.

Oh there's a ton of randomness to my collection. It's just really luck when I do complete a set these days!
