Hopelessly Behind

I decided that I was too far behind on newer cards and that I needed to start whittling away at them more.  It is so bad I didn't have anything newer than 2014 on my want list.  So I went onto eBay and bought complete Red Sox team sets (series 1, 2, and Update) for 2015-2018. 

My plan was to scan all the cards for each year and post them here.  However once I got them all in front of me I realized what a monumental task scanning over 100 cards was going to be and scratched that idea.  Four years of bagged team sets is as close as I'm going to get to scanning and posting them.  

Filling my want list with these four complete sets I realized I have no idea how many sets are being put out per year anymore.  Yeah I know base, Heritage, A&G, Bowman, Chrome, Stadium, Bowman Chrome come out every year but I know there are a bunch more.  I clicked over to The Trading Card Database and quickly found out just how far behind I have fallen in my collecting by ignoring new cards for the last few years.  I kept telling myself that later I would just buy them complete but now I it is a giant task.  (and an expensive one to do all at once)  Heck is a pretty big task to just figure out all the sets that came out in the last 4 years not to mention finding complete sets for them all.  I don't know if I should just start at 2015 and work my way through or just pick and choose which ones to chase.

It's daunting, but just start somewhere and pick away at it. I've actually had decent luck finding complete sets at not crazy prices, so that works for me sometimes.

There are way too many sets. I just do the basic team sets

Agreed. It's pretty ridiculous to try to get them all.
