Welcome to ATBATT 2017!
I'm starting off the new year with a collecting goal that I figure should be easy enough to do, but the catch is, I won't be able to complete it without a little help from my friends.
In the history of baseball, there have only been 23 perfect games pitched - including one during a World Series.
I'm putting together a PC of the batteries from those perfect games, and I've already got off to a decent start.
Ultimately, I would like to have cards of the players wearing the uniforms from the team when the perfect game occured, and even better, cards from that year, whenever possible. Yes, I know the early cards are pretty near impossible, but a guy can dream, right?
Thus, I may have cards to start off with for some players, but I'm looking to upgrade those if I can fulfill the ultimate goal. Let's take a look at what I've got, and what I need...
If the player has a line through him, I've got that card, but chances are, I'm looking for an upgrade to the proper uniform and/or year. If I have the ultimate card, it will be noted.
If you can help...THANKS!
