Expos Frankenset Pages 49 and 50

This month has been a struggle so far. I'm fine during the day but by time I get home I'm drained then I start getting lonely since I'm here by myself.. Not a fun combination. So I had a couple days where I didn't update. 

I am here today though, so let's get another two pages shown!

Page 49
Card 433 is a 1988 Score Wallace Johnson
Interesting... From the back of the card, it seems like Johnson was with the Expos for a while, including the minors. In fact, out of his 1203 professional games, all but 76 were with the Expos organization.
Card 434 is a 1990 Upper Deck Jeff Huson
Card 435 is a 1994 Stadium Club Rondell White

A COMC Order

So, I'm taking part in the Cardboard Secret Santa again this year. As soon as I got my name, I went onto COMC to pick out some stuff for them... 

And ended up getting stuff for myself as well.. 

So the 1988 Topps Record Breaker is the error version. I think I can do a "master" set of this one fairly easy.. 

As for the other three here.. I picked up two copies of each because I didn't have them.. And they all fit into holes on the Frankenset.. 

The Glossy send in Raines takes over the empty 37 spot. 
The 1969 OPC Jack Billingham takes the 92 Spot
The 1971 Topps Don Hahn takes the 94 spot. 

Since today is Black Friday on the site, I may go see if I can find anything else I want..
