Trade with Big B from Waxaholic

Brian from Waxaholic and I have traded cards across the pond for a good 12 months now. The package that arrived from Brian the other day contained cards that recognised that I have more than one pursuit.
Firstly he sent these 4 Jacoby Ellsbury cards for Pursuit of Jacoby.
This chronicles my attempts to collect all the Jacoby cards with no specific print runs from 2005 to the present.
Secondly 2 Junk Wax packs for Pursuit of Red Sox.
Any packs I manage to beg, borrow or buy are opened here in search of Red Sox.
And lastly 4 cards for the Pursuit of 1980's Topps.
This was my first and a long term pursuits, but thanks to Brian and a host of other generous collectors might be coming to an end very soon. There are now only 3 cards I need to collect the whole 726 set. In an era that was devoid of short printed, different coloured parallels and mini refractor relics, it has been a quest that was attainable.
Many thanks to Brian for this much appreciated package.

I've got the last three cards you need for the 1980 set now... they'll be on their way to you shortly.
