Default Finally finished the 55 Bowman set!!!

I didn't realize it took so long but after checking old posts I completed my 55 Bowman set in a little over 3 years. The set includes all error/variations. My goal was to get every card from fellow Net54 members.

I would like to thank everyone I got cards from.

Not sure if I will ever try to put a set together card by card again because of the cost but it was fun.

Congrats. I finished the same set a few years ago, and I think it took about two years in total, trying to find deals on ebay for EX condition cards. It was the first set I had worked on in twenty some years and cost more than any of my other ungraded sets, since prices had climbed. My last five cards were umps and the Johnson variation - how about yours?

Since I got them all from forum members I just bought/traded for any I could find when I could find them. For me condition did not matter so there is everything from near mint to my Mantle that has a chunk the size of a 50 cent piece missing out of the back.

The Ernie Banks(2nd to last card) was the hard one for me but umpire Frank Dascoli was my last card.

I never kept track of prices but i know it would have been way cheaper to just buy a complete set. Most of the extra $ came from all the shipping charges.
