I briefly mention the arrival of my signed copy of David B’s new book – SumoKitty – and then get into an unboxing for 2014 BBM Sumo cards and this time I open all 24 packs.
Link to BigSumoFan.com for getting the book:
My results: I got 81 cards I need for the 99-card set, so I’m missing 18 cards.
I got 38 doubles and only one triple.
Collecting these cards seems like a pretty fun side hobby for me, and I will have access to trading for the cards I need to complete my set with the wonderful folks over at the BBM Sumo Cards Club on FaceBook.
