I actually just posted about this yesterday, but I'm happy to say that Mr. Seaver arrived last month, and my 1967 set is complete.

Congrats! Very cool set. Just curious, do you store this in a binder? I dont have this set, but I imagine it would look awesome in sheets/binder.

Ed,
Thanks! It is in a binder. Right now, they are back to back in a 9 pocket page, but I'm going to get a bigger binder to put only 9 in a page so you can see the front and back.

Just got the final card to complete my 1951 Bowman set (oddly a rather common card). Took many years to finally complete. I actually had the Mantle and Mays cards first before starting on the set.

Now it's on to the 1953 Bowman set.

Nice! It had to be a great feeling as you worked on the set knowing that the two BIG cards were already out of the way.

Aside from working on some football sets, I am two cards away from completion of 1954 Topps. It will need some upgrades. That set is vgex-ex. I bought a 32 card lot of 1958 Topps to get me started. I am going to try and build a lower grade G-VG set as a change of pace. No beaters, just honest wear.

I am at 61/80 for my 1959 Fleer Ted Williams set--though perhaps 61/79 is more reflective of this one.

When I get a free weekend I'm also going to see where I ended up on 1985 Donruss/Leaf as a kid.

And in the hole is 1978 Topps. My mom threw away my 2000+ cards from packs so I'll be starting from near zero. Any tips for the most fun way to collect a set like this? It's cheap enough to buy all at once--at least in the raw VG-EX condition I go for--but that doesn't seem fun.

A cool way to do it would be to start off by buying a 'cheap' complete set that has a ton of nice cards (that meet your condition requirements) in it, then slowly upgrade the ones that you think need it.

Great question on the 1978 set. In addition to the 72 set, I also completed the 75 set and I had a great time with the following process. If you keep cards in sheets/binder I would suggest starting with card #1 and purchase cards in order. This works great with sheets because there are never empty spots. Piecing the set together one card at a time also allows you to be as picky as you want about condition. 70s sets are notorious for centering issues. While I am not a centering fanatic, I do like cards that are at least 85/15. I do realize it is more expensive this way, but places like COMC and Sportlots can really be pretty inexpensive for commons. Best of luck
