Help Doug Complete His 2014 Topps Opening Day Set!

UPDATE (September 28th) - Doug successfully completed the 2014 Topps Opening Day set at the Philly Show held at the Valley Forge Casino Resort.  He still needs some of the cards for the insert sets, listed below.

Between Innings - 1 Racing Presidents, 2 Pierogie Race

Fired Up - 11 Ellsbury, 25 Lawrie

Thanks again to Section 36, Fantastic Catch, Base Set Calling and Remember the Astrodome for the assists!

My seven-year-old son Doug recently dove head first into the world of set collecting.  The first set he decided to tackle was this year's Topps Opening Day set.  We started out with a few packs purchased from Target, and then graduated to a few blaster boxes.  The list you see below (both sides) are the cards he needs to complete the entire 220-card set.  I'm proud to say this is his first official checklist.

2014 Topps Opening Day #41
How can you help, you may be asking yourself.  It's easy!  If you have any of these cards just sitting around, please e-mail me and I'll pass along Doug's address.  (He still lives at home.)  Doug may not be able to send you back anything in return, but I might be able to help you out with a nice assortment of cards from the team or player of your choice.

I'm hoping this is the first step in Doug's long baseball card collecting journey, so I sincerely appreciate anything you can do to help him out.  Even if you only have one of these cards and you're willing to part with it, it would make his day to receive a plain white envelope with one of the needs for his quest.

His original lists are below, and I've also typed out the cards he needs.  He's also interested in the Topps Opening Day Mascots insert set, and he's currently working on putting together his want list for that set.  (Update 7/21/14 - Insert set want lists not below.)

Thank you for your help!

Well timed. I just sat down to collate these for myself. I'm sure I'll come up with some - and need some.
