I've already started. Never thought I'd like them, but I have been pleasantly surprised so far.

Default Here too

Rob, I 'd like to congratulate you here too, after saying so on the OBC thread.
That's a great run!

I'm down to 27 which includes the 1952 low series but I haven't gotten one in months...maybe I don't want it to end
Of course, to me...it's a side project to go after the Topps run since the T's and the E's really do it for me

I might be able to help with 52 lows, but there are some Real Tipton mints 10 or Tipton gem mint 11's in there so you'd probably want to upgrade before you pull them out of the envelope LOL.

Once again, congrats on a very cool accomplishment!

Thanks Brian,

I appreciate the kind words. 52 is looming for me. What do you have left?

Fantastic job Rob!! I don't even have the complete run in my sights yet so I'm very impressed. Some day maybe I'll be there.

Great job Rob! I am close to where you are. Maybe 2-3 years away? But I also am working 1948-present for football too. I also want to complete the Bowmans, but that is going to take some time. Maybe those are considerations for you. I decided on the short set for 1952 topps. I can't see myself spending the kind of money that it costs for the high numbers, when I could use that money elsewhere. For the price of a 52 high number common I could buy a Goudey Jimmie Foxx. No brainer for me. Good luck in whatever you decide.

Congrats!

I am one year behind you - as I have 54 - current done with some Bowman and Fleer mixed in. As I have gotten to the more expensive ones, I feel I have slowed down, but we had a lot of company here for a graduation party this weekend and I was showing a friend who I hadn't seen in a couple of years and he noted the continued progress - which was nice to hear.

I really liked your strategy of buying multiple sets and lots and upgrading in big chunks and selling off the leftovers.

Good luck on the post-war monster. I will probably start that journey as well in about 18 months which will go over well at home now that we have a college student!

Take Care
