Just finished the 63 set as my wife bought me the Rose RC for Fatherís Day. Itís the first pre-1980ís set ive completed so Iím excited. I have good progress on 54, 67, 68. I think Iíll work on 68. I need the Ryan RC but high numbers arenít crazy like 67. I need a break from paying obscene amounts for high numbers.

Edit to say Iíll work on 54 as well. I have all the expensive cards except Aaron - Banks, Kaline, Williams x2, Jackie, Mays, etc. just have to wait on the Aaron.

I'm down to my last 5 cards for my raw 1955 Bowman set. It's my first set from the 1950's decade.

Congratulations on the 63 set. Great to have a wife who is understanding about your interests.

Default 1952 Topps update

I have no delusions of ever completing this set, but I am having fun fill in what I can. I have certainly gotten much further then I thought.

Need all high numbers 311 - 407 (97 total - 31 needed)

Default Down to 6 = Fatherís Day Update

My wife ďgets meĒ and my baseball card collection.
Today she gifted me with the remainder of the 1952 Topps set. (My version, like several others does not include the silly 52T high numbers)
The final five fifty twoís were pretty tough ones:
#1 Pafko, Spahn, Billy Martin, Bob Lemon, Rizzuto and tough Early Wynn!

So now I just need these 6 cards to finish 1952-1980:
  • 1963 Pete Rose (not a fan, and this is an ugly, expensive card)
  • 1966 Horace Clarke (silly hi number alert, I did not enjoy collecting these!)
  • 1966 Twins Team ( see above)
  • 1967 Norm Cash (hi number, but a pretty set)
  • 1967 Brooks Robinson (probably my next purchase, great card)
  • 1968 Nolan Ryan (waiting for low grade, decent eye appeal for this easy to find card)

It will be good to finish these last half dozen this year (maybe)
Thanks to Wifey!

Default 1960 Topps

I haven't got any in months but got that itch to finally finish 1960 Topps Baseball! Been working on it for about 5 years and have a bunch still left to complete but as many can relate it's about filling the set and upgrading later. My whole set is ungraded raw EX-EXMT maybe some NM with nice photos clean back, whole card in tack but I don't go after beaters but still dn't mind a little off center or wrinkle and creases.

All i need are these 10,34,55,73,100,111,112,114,127,128,132,136,138,13 9,140,142,143,147,148,151,153,156,159,163,164,170, 173,174,182,187,193,194,195,196,200,204,208,210,21 2,222,223,227,235,237,239,240,241,242,246,249,250, 258,262,281,282,287,288,291,293,294,296,297,298,29 9,300,302,304,305,308,309,314,315,316,317,318,319, 320,321,322,323,324,325,326,328,330,331,332,333,33 4,335,336,337,338,339,340,341,343,344,345,346,347, 348,349,350,351,353,354,355,356,359,360,361,362,36 4,365,366,368,369,370,371,373,374,375,377,379,381, 382,385,386,387,388,389,390,391,392,393,395,396,39 7,398,401,402,403,405,406,408,409,410,412,413,414, 416,417,419,420,421,422,424,425,427,428,431,432,43 4,435,436,438,440,441,442,443,444,445,446,447,448, 449,450,451,452,453,454,461,462,463,464,471,472,47 3,474,475,476,477,478,479,480,481,482,483,484,485, 486,487,488,489,490,492,493,494,496,497,498,499,50 1,503,504,505,506,507,508,509,510,511,512,513,514, 515,516,517,518,519,520,521,522,523,524,525,526,52 7,528,529,530,531,532,533,534,535,536,537,538,539, 540,541,542,543,544,545,546,547,548,549,550,551,55 2,553,554,555,556,557,558,559,560,561,562,563,564, 565,566,567,568,569,570,571,572
hoping to crack out alot of those cards from the list then move on to another set or 2. I search almost every day for the cards needed!!

Default And then there was one

After a very long struggle, I am just one card away from finishing off the 1967 Topps Baseball set. Unfortunately, that card is number 581, the Tom Seaver rookie. Iím hoping to finally cross that off the list soon.

There have been some very interesting threads recently about set building, so I thought it might be a good time to bump this thread for some updates. After finishing my 72 set a few months ago I fought the urge to begin the 71 set, but I finally surrendered. I am following the same method that I did with the 72 set: building a series at a time beginning with the high #s. I have about 25 high #s to go so I am making steady progress. I am looking for cards in the VG+ - EX range. Maybe a few corner issues, but no creases, etc. The cards really present well in the binder.
