Not a Banner Day for The Andrew Shaw Project

On the bright side, when I got home today another addition to the project was waiting on me.

I did some work on Sports Card Forum last night and updated my Andrew Shaw collection in the Inventory Manager.  I hadn’t updated it in almost a year and had not accounted for all the Shaw multiples that I have listed on COMC.  This card brings me to 125 unique Shaw cards (out of 179) listed in the SCF database.  I currently stand at 69%, but 33 of the cards I don’t have are 1-of-1s and I’m missing one each of cards serial numbered to 3, 5 and 6.

The bad news happened earlier in the day.  A month ago, I won a Shaw Net Cord /25 from the 2015-16 SP Game Used product.  I emailed this morning and asked if he knew when it was mailed.  Within an hour or so he replied that he’s had a few cards coming to the States end up “lost” and that he’d refund my money.  He did, but it’s not the money I want, it’s the card.

All I can do now is hope that it arrives (and I will send him the money back) or that another comes available.  I’m not holding my breath that the former will happen.
