I could probably give some good advice on blogging. I could tell you what it takes to keep a blog going for an extended amount of time. I could tell you what things I think works, and mostly what I’d say is do what keeps it fun.
One specific thing I’d say is this – create a list of your (reasonable) most wanted cards and put it on your blog. Because it will cause you to find some of those “most wanted” in various ways. A blogger or two might have the card you need, and that’s happened for me. But it also will make you search out those cards. Which is what happened here.
1996 Topps Power Boosters #21 – Jim Scharrer
I’ll try to get the completed set post done
tomorrow! (*Never mind – will be later in the month – too much to do!)
Here’s the updated Elusive Eight, just in case anyone has these cards available! Remember – the pictures are the photos I have of other cards in the set. Since I don’t have them, I don’t have actual photos yet!

Here are some other cards that would be knocking on the door to make the list. 3 of them have been on the list at some point in the past, but were bumped to make room for the Power Boosters cards.
