A 1/1 Challenge Or Something Else?

In case you don't follow me on Twitter (@CollectingCutch) I have been posting only 1 of 1 cards for the past 10 days.

I was wondering if I could post a 1/1 on here each day that I've never shown off here until Opening Day.

My question is would that be too much or should I spread them out over the course of the season.

With about 4 weeks until Opening Day, I think I could do it....

by showing off cards like this 2017 Gold Label Class 3 Gold Parallel 1/1


Something that may be more challenging would be to count down the days until Opening Day by showing the card's actual card number in the set
Like this 2011 Topps Opening Day #27


I could do something similar to my Serial History posts and just focus on the Serial Prefix number
Like this 2011 Topps Chrome #8 card serially numbered 27/50
 It is the Gold Parallel 27/50.

So in the comments below, please tell me how you think I should count down the days in March until Opening Day


  1. Maybe countdown 27 different Pirates cards.

  2. If it was me, I'd mix them in with other stuff so readers would get a countdown once a week. But I only post three times a week anyway.

    1. I try as often as possible to do daily posts so I think it could be fun to do either a serial number prefix countdown or card numbering countdown.

  3. Mix it up is my vote! The more I see 2011, the more I just absolutely love that set. Good luck whatever route you take!

  4. I like the idea of mixing it up as well!

  5. Mix it up! So now you know how much I love pirates gold parallels. That 2011 chrome is a BEAUTY!

  6. The fact that you do a countdown until Opening Day with different 1 of 1's is mind blowing. It doesn't matter what or how you want to do your countdown... I'm sure it'll be amazing.
