More than seven years after the set's release, I'm still chasing after the 2009-10 Upper Deck Champ's Yellow parallels. With just 100 cards in the set you'd think I'd have knocked this one off by now, but the one-per-box insertion ratio makes these far from easy to come by.
Hell, there are still a few cards I swear I've yet to see to this day. A while back though I managed to secure half a dozen more for about the price of a blaster.
Those four are nice enough in the sense that they get me 4% closer to a complete set, but it was the last two cards that were really significant:
Who knows if I'll ever complete this set. I think I say that any time I post one of these. With these in hand though I'm at 44 cards and the halfway point is within reach, so I guess you never know. Maybe I'll get lucky with a few more in 2017.
If you're a set collector, what's the toughest insert or parallel set you've ever taken a crack at? If anything comes to mind please leave a comment!
