I'm way behind

An obvious statement isn't it? I have to say that I have let my card collecting get a little dusty. My local card shop was selling off boxes of 1990 Score for $2 a box so I picked up a few. I figure it was a great way to get some stock for autographs (the price was right). I know not the greatest cards but for autos it bad If anyone needs cards from this year. I will look to see what I can find as I open packs up. I will be looking mainly for Giants, Cubs and Tigers. Let me know if I can help but these are pack so not ever card can will be found
