I already have the P & D Bush rolls. I don't collect medals, so there's nothing here for me. I'm also holding out for the C&C set.

That is my hope as well, but let's also hope it won't have a massive price increase like this set.

Yeah, I am certain it will be more than Reagan was four years ago.

Yup. One of the few good things from 2016.

That and, well, the Cubs winning the World Series and Clemson winning the Natty.
