The day after Christmas is always a bit of a letdown for a kid.  That's kind of how I felt today after my awesome mailday yesterday.  It was so special that every other mailday sort of pales in comparison.  Still, I was able to follow up yesterday's glory with a nice purchase today.  I was able to win an auction on eBay for a Justin Duchscherer 2005 SPx Jersey Spectrum /99!  I do not have a copy of that card in my collection, and I cannot wait to add it to the others.  The arrival of that card will leave a mere 17 cards left to complete my Justin Duchscherer non-1/1 collection.

I also purchased a 2011 Topps Series 2 complete set (#331-660).  My first child, a girl, was born in July of 2011, so I am putting together a number of 2011 sets for her (and me).  I'll be doing the Bowman, Bowman Chrome, Topps Allen & Ginter, Topps Heritage, Topps Tier One, Topps Series 1, Topps Series 2, and Topps Update.  I have most of the sets completed, and I am having a blast picking up singles to complete the Tier One and Heritage sets.  I am moving all the sets into binders because sets just look so awesome when displayed in that fashion.  It's a very inexpensive, yet lengthy process that helps me budget my purchases each month with a lot of base cards to inventory.  I'm looking forward to my next mailday.
