It's Been Awhile, Y'all

I have been deliberating over the past 5 months what to do with my cards.  I have come to two decisions and have been in the process of implementing those decisions.  

I decided that I was only going to collect (at this time) two players, Tim Flannery and Tony Gwynn.  Flannery I was going to try and get all of his cards.  Right now all I have are a few cards other than all his Topps cards.  I will be starting chasing those remaining cards soon.  
I decided that I was only going to keep 19 pages of Tony Gwynn cards, that is 171 cards.  So I went through all my Tony Gwynn, Sr. cards and eventually pared it down to that number.  I split the rest of my Gwynn cards and other Padres cards between Gavin and Fuji.  I dropped off Gavin's cards to him a week or so ago and I mailed Fuji's to him yesterday.  When I decided to page my Gwynn cards I realized there were still 10 cards I needed to complete my task. I have listed the 10 cards I still need on the Top Ten Most Wanted.

Thanks in advance for the Gwynn care package. I dug through my extra Gwynns right now and found these:

1992 Ultra Commemorative Gwynn #2, #3, #5, #6, #8 and #10.

I'll toss them in the mail this week.

Not sure when I'll have time to sit down and dig through my Padres boxes, but when I do... I'll start pulling those Flannery cards for you.

Good to hear from you again. I hope you're doing well. Seeing that many Gwynns all at once is pretty cool!

I was just thinking about you the other day. Glad to hear from you and this you are figuring out what you are going to collect. Good luck rounding out the Gwynn collection

I thought I might have the 2000 Topps #240 1984 Batting Title, but after going through all my scattered Gwynns I didn't find one. Good to hear from you though!

It's nice to know that you're still amongst the living :)
