If one does a Topps run, should it include the 1948 Magic Photo baseball subset ? If not, should it include 1951 ? if so, which of the 5 sets from 1951 is needed for such a run ?

If you are continuing the run, which set from 2017 would extend the run ?

I don't know. To each his own I guess. Just finishing up 52 is going to be a big enough job.

I'm just getting into vintage and trying to move/sell/give away my modern to make room and money for vintage. With that in mind, I'm just getting started into sets.

I have an array of vintage (about a 2-row shoebox worth), but not many of any certain year. The closest I am is I have about roughly 440 of the 1974 Topps baseball set. Not sure I will continue toward that set, but I probably will.

Other than that, I have about 70 different from 1962 Topps baseball and about 40 each from 1972, 1973 and 1975 Topps. Also have about 25 different from 1957. So those will be next few sets I decide to work on.

JW---it was only meant as a generic question. In any event, good luck on 1952 and welcome to the Board

I did the Red Back and Blue Back sets from 1951 Topps. I considered the team cards and all stars as inserts. No to 1948. I was going by Topps, in 1975 they said it was their 25th anniversary 1951-1975 and they had the subset of MVPs with Topps cards. They included 1951 with the Red Back Yogi Berra and a mock up of a Roy Campanella.

Base Topps for 2017 and every other year. As hot as the update cards are, you should get those too for the years that they exist.

I am doing exactly the same. Have already completed the red backs.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Default 1972 High #s complete!!

I started the 1972 Topps baseball set in June and received some advice from members of this board that I should begin with the high #s to knock them out first since they are quite “challenging”. This turned out to be great advice and I am very excited to report that I ordered the final 7 cards of the last series today! I am pretty pumped about this and look forward to completing the set in 2018.

So I figured that I would share what I have going on.
I am about 60 cards each from completing nrmt sets of
1959 and 1960 Topps baseball.
I have also decided to put the 1958 set together.
I have close to 30% of the set, so that will keep me busy.

Will continue to pick up many cards from our members here.
