Vintage Group Break Checklist Claim

If you took part in the Vintage Group Break this week, you have a chance to claim another card for your pile.  We got a bunch of checklists, and a few other cards that have no team assignment.  I was just going to distribute them randomly, but thought that perhaps some people might need a particular checklist that they saw.  All of these are totally unmarked, which is great.  If you want to choose one as your own, leave a comment here with your preference.  First come, first serve.  You can also pick the Judge Landis card instead, which is probably more valuable than any of the checklists.  Whatever, someone will get rewarded for reading a post about boring old checklists.

Participants ONLY, please, may choose from:
1974 #1-132 (three available)
1974 #265-396 (three available)
1974 Traded
1975 #133-264
1976 #397-528
1976 Traded (two available)
1977 #1-132
1977 #397-528
You can also claim the strange Wizard card, the Congo card, the Judge, or that weird target thingy, if none of these tickle your pickle.

CC and the Silver Bullet Band

 Got my latest Sabathia redemption card in the mail the other day.
2020 Topps Archives AUTO #76TA-CCS Silver Parallel (84/99)
This one completes the trio of autos that I'll be acquiring in this set.  The 1/1 was up a few weeks ago, but the price was too much.  Someone bought it.  If it pops up again, great, but if not, no big deal.  I've got just about everything else but a handful of 1/1's.

Also, I was smart about this whole thing and bought these Archives auto cards before they were redeemed, so I have all of those, too.  They all look pretty nice together.
Baller move.

 As for more CC cards, it's nice to have a break right now.  Three unexpected releases on the 12th(???) anniversary of his legendary run was a bit much.  I will continue to scan the skies.
