792nd Place - Checklist
Was there anything worse as a kid than saving up a few quarters, buying a pack of cards, and pulling a checklist?
As a kid my parents would buy me the newest Topps Factory set every year for Christmas. I remember with my first set I actually pulled a pen out and started marking the checklist cards, but getting bored with it and abandoning the effort soon after.
I suppose they did play a practical role for the folks who were looking to complete a set via wax packs, but still, they're maddening. Hang tight, there are four more to come...
