Default Another milestone in my collecting

I just picked up the final mini pennant for my type nine bf3 set. Joe Medwick has been avoiding me for about 20 years. We recently made contact to finish the 78 piece set.

Congratulations! Great job of preserving history.

Amazing, what an accomplishment! Did they do all teams, I don't remember ever seeing a Senators example.

It is heartening to see success on such an impressive scale. I think I've got more millstones than milestones in my collection history, but your example inspires me to press on.

Guys, Thanks for all the congrats. I appreciate it. Hank, of the 78 pennants, there are 26 cubs and 26 white sox, 13 bees and 13 cardinals. Don't ask me why.
