This is a great thread. Iíve been thinking about this exact same topic while putting together a Ď70 set and cringing having to pay 8 to 12 bucks per card for the seventh series numbers 634-720 for player like Al McBean, Adolfo Phillips or Mike Fiore.

So Iíve been weighing the pros and cons of buying a set outright for $1400 to $2000 and selling off any doubles or cards Iím not satisfied with the condition or continue to pick them off a few cards at a time. I figured it made more sense economically to buy the complete set but it was great reading everyoneís opinions and experience on the topic.

I build the vintage sets because I enjoy it. I donít look on it as an investment. I am also hoping that eventually my son will share this interest with me. You canít put a price on that.

I have two...low grade 55 bowman and 69 Topps that I am finishing a second set on. I am sure I wonít be able to sell them profitably but maybe someone will have something I can trade for.
