Default My 1974 Topps Red Sox team set

I mentioned this project in a couple of pickups threads and Mark suggested I start a new thread for this project, so here it is. I'm working on a complete PSA slabbed team set, combination signed and unsigned. The goal is not to have a complete signed set, but to have a really nice PSA set, with as many certified autos included as possible.

First, here are the signed ones I have so far, in the order I obtained them:





Aparicio was a PSA 9 crackout



Yaz was a PSA 8 crackout



Was a PSA 9 crackout.

And here are the other graded ones I have, in numerical order:






The Evans is a personal favorite. He's one of my 2 favorite players of all time and this is his first solo Topps card. There are no PSA 10's.

Dan,

Sounds like a very interesting and fun project you got going there. The autographed cards look amazing. I really like that you started with such nice looking cards that are signed. The 1974 set is a great looking set! Are you planning to crack out other cards that you currently have and get signed? Also, what are you still looking to pick up? Details, details...

By the way great thread!

It would be great to see a complete signed set too. I have always loved that Fisk card.

Thanks Ian! I saw you got your Furillo set approved, congrats!

Mark, for signed and/or graded cards, I now have 19 for this project. There are 33 or 34 on my checklist, so still a ways to go. There are 4 or so guys that are reliable TTM that I don't have high grade cards for yet. I don't have the list in front of me, but I know one is Danny Cater. Other than that, I'll Continue to buy PSA 9's I need when they're fairly priced and keep my eyes out for private signings. Since I joined SCN I've been able to send to signings for Cooper, aparicio, Bill Lee, Yaz and Cepeda, so hopefully more in the future. It would be awesome to get Evans on his card. My 2nd favorite player's first solo card, in the highest grade possible.... signed. I would treasure that one.

Great stuff Dan. A Fisk 74 Deckle white back was a long time nemesis for me

Bob can be a pain too

Excellent collection. The 74 Bostons look really sharp in the PSA slab. I love how many of these were taken at the Oakland Coliseum too.

I really appreciate everybody's kind words. I wasn't even sure if I should start this thread.
