2014 Spirit Base: 886-900
#886 - Gerardo Parra, #887 - Chris Herrmann, #888 - Josh Edgin
"FLAG ON THE PLAY. TOO MANY UNUSED CONSANANTS. #12, MINNSOTA."
#889 - Shawn Kelley, #890 - Drew Pomeranz, #891 - Mario Hollands
I've spent so much time recoloring the A's jerseys & hats they should just throw me a bone and make the switch to kelly green.
#892 - Brent Morel, #893 - Kevin Siegrist, #894 - Alex Torres
I don't begrudge Alex Torres for wearing the puffy hat since it's in the name of safety. But I really hope they can improve the technology and find something as effective that doesn't take up as much space. He looks like one of the Mario Bros. out there.
#895 - Hector Sanchez, #896 - Fernando Rodney, #897 - Jeff Beliveau
As annoying as it can be, it just didn't seem right to use a non-arrow photo of Fernando Rodney.
#898 - Colby Lewis, #899 - Steve Delabar, #900 - Tyler Moore
It's cool that there are still unique photos this late in the set. That Delabar shot is one of my favorite.
So that wraps it up. With an assist from the Royals and Giants, I was able to reach my goal of completing this set before the end of the 2014 season. Sure, I probably should've spaced it out over the whole year a little better instead of dumping 600 cards in the final month or so. I've learned my lesson. And that lesson is to never do a 900-card project again. Unless of course Panini or Topps comes calling.
Thanks for your patience and whatever time you spent (and continue to spend) reading my posts and viewing my work. My plan for 2015 is to stick with what I was doing before this season. There will be base cards for Spirit, Clubhouse, Deluxe and Pennant along with a variety of insert designs. Also, I'll try to review more Topps and Panini release throughout the whole season. And if you'd like to see some more design remix posts, feel free to hit me up with some suggestions.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to back away from the computer and enjoy the final game(s?) of the World Series without these base card posts eating away at my nerves.
