Hi everyone,

I thought I'd share with you the completed slideshow of my E210 York Caramel Type 1 set. I just finished the set over the last week or 2 and wanted to share it with someone. This is the first set I've completed since a 1993 Topps set back in the 90s. :) There are still some variations I don't have and I'm sure I'll look to upgrade it over the years, but I am really pumped about getting it complete.

I started putting it together back in November of 2012. I'm sure some of the cards may look familiar to some of you. Thank you to everyone that's helped me along the way.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I saw a couple questions asking about what's next. Well, I'm already working on 3 other sets, the T206, E95, and 33 Goudeys so that's more than enough to keep me busy. I would guess that I'll get more aggressive toward E95s though, and stick to my plan for the 2 larger sets.

I don't know if I'll collect a run of E210 Type 2s but I could def see myself going for the players that aren't represented in Type 1. The Gehrig would be a huge win.

Thanks again for looking at the cards and posting. Putting together a set from my hometown has been a blast.
