Ah, well, I've picked off the last of the easy ones, I think. I'm not stopping but progress is going to be tough from here on out!

I dove in for the last Kraken swim of 2020.

While it has been a complete disaster of a year in so many horrible ways, my card collection has done well. Seems silly and I am certainly not bragging.
The hobby can sometimes allow us to stay occupied rather than dwell on depressing things that we are powerless to change.

So I'll ask for a big 10 point bump to my Kraken Counter, as a watery Wagner joins the team

Nice pickup, Brian L. The more I study the set, the more I've found just how tough that card is. Looks at the pops on it and the other big name players -- it's scary how tough it is.

Brianp-beme - request to be bumped to 182 after picking up Mordecai Brown and this Cy Young (Cleveland), which is en route! Minus Shoeless Joe, I'm down to needing ten cards.

Way to make a big Kraken splash upon entry into the E-Monster sea.

And Anson is correct, the Wagner throwing is one tough thummergummer, definitely worthy of its 10 Kraken point status. Your Cy Young Cleveland is no slouch either...good luck on the pursuit of the final ten cards you need.

Default The Butler did it!

One of the few cards I still needed has arrived.
Ok Iím corny, but I was saving this player for the penultimate card to the Kraken Quest. (Iím not buying a Joe Jax so I will be pleased with the rest)

I was saving Butler, a single kraken pointer to use the corny title of this post but I grew restless. Finding cards in this set ainít easy... I bought it early.

Kraken Keeper could you plus one for me?

Congrats to the other recent incoming cards too.
My man Anson is right on my dorsal fin!

The Butler did it with the lead pipe in the Conservatory. Congrats on your deduction powers, but I always had the suspicion that sneaky John had a hand in advancing your collection. I will plus one you right now!

Sounds interesting, but I am afraid to do it...what if Krakens go out of style? I imagine they would be hard to remove, much like popcorn ceiling.

Well, I won the Speaker on eBay, which is en route. Then I picked up this McLean, so a 13-point bump to 195 is requested! Down to eight cards other than Shoeless Joe, who is not likely a pursuit in this market.

Speaker is my dream card and not an easy one to pin down, and McLean is sneaky tough. Up to rarified 195 land for you Anson.

Anson,

Nice pick ups. Can't wait to see the Speaker when it comes in! Love that card.

Thanks, guys -- appreciate the kind words.

I wish I could have pursued this set a little earlier when prices weren't getting out of hand. But we're all in this boat together!

Default Out of the boat!

Anson
The Kraken deliberately wants to knock us out of the boat!
So while we try to stay in it together we are going to be in the water eventually.

Great job on acquiring the Speaker!
I have a pending Bender that will boost my number up one tick.
Iím getting near the feasible finish too.
Maybe this year we both can claim the 230 point status together!

Default The Pending Bender Landed

Brian, please add another Kraken number to my accumulation.

The Chief has arrived. No more Pending Bender.

My Kraken Abacus has settled in on 213 for now.

There is still room for the ones I need in the E90-1 Box.
Next up?
Who has a Rebel Oakes for sale/trade that can knock another notch?

Brian L. - I am hoping to get there this year, my friend. But I'm down to all toughies at this point so it will not be easy.

brianp-beme - Well, we've got a bit of a Kraken controversy. I am down to needing nine cards (Shoeless, Wagner Batting, Young Boston, Stahl, Sweeney, Lobert, Stone One Hand, Shean, and Gibson Back). That's a total of 53 points. Thus, my total should be 197.

Not sure where I went wrong along the way but I'll gladly take two free Kraken points, assuming my math above is correct.

Default Red Keeler

BP, please mark up another nickel for my Kraken Quest.

This Red Holiday version of Willie comes complete with a handy place to hang card from a Christmas Tree.

It fits perfectly here and brings my elevated tally to 218.
Just 5 more cards to go (ok, really 4 because one of them is a bit costly, eh?)

Another extra tough one subdued. If you find the punched out portion, please send my way so I can lay Kraken claim to having the Keeler red background card.

It is true...I will employ the same spray bottle I use to spritz water on the backside of our 8lb. Yorkie when he is acting up.

Default Jumpin'

I nearly jumped off the page when I was able to get another hit to the Kraken list this week.
Rebel Oakes is now part of the Familytoad Collection and the end is nigh'

Need= Wally Clement (1 Kraken point)
Need= Joe Jackson (ya, sure!)(20 Kraken points)
Need= Dots Miller (Sunset)(3 Kraken points)
Need= Honus Wagner (Batting)(7 Kraken points)

Any leads on finding the non-Jax cards are greatly appreciated!
219 Kraken Points for this guy.

Brian,
For reasons that are murky even to me I've always shied away from "E" cards. But last year I jumped in with both feet and went on an E95 and E90-1 binge.
So now I need two E95s and 25 or so E90-1s. I'll check my cards against your list soon and get myself a Kraken number.

Brian,
I pulled off my socks and did the math and I'm at 98/121 for 136 KPs.
The easy part is over; the 23 I need average five points per card.

Socks have hindered a many double digit+ counting tasks. 136 is a nice starting number...hopefully some of the toughies will trickle your way.
