Hey Rob, if you mean what do I have left for my run, it's not a lot of big name stars , maybe 5 or 6 depending on your definition of that. But a few dumb 61, 66, 67 high numbers and even a couple 68's that have eluded me. Honestly, I haven't tried too hard to finish this year like I thought I would once I got down to the finish line. They'll show up sometime and I'll get there.

Congrats again...try a nice prewar set on for size , you'll hate it LOL

That's a big accomplishment. I know it motivated me for many years until I finally completed my run back to 1948.

My goal was to get a complete set from every year. I finished that earlier this year. I've got Topps sets from 1951 to today and Bowman sets for 1948-1950. My 1952 Topps set is just low numbers so I got the 1952 Bowman set as well.

My problem now is I'm feeling a bit bored. Post War sets aren't exciting me the way they should. I'm working on completing an oddball set for each year from 1940-1947, but that's a slow journey. Right now I'm just looking for 60's and 70's oddball sets to keep me occupied.

2018 Collecting goals...

Congrats on the completion. I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I like the floating heads (for some unknown reason). The Rose looks pretty nice as the final card.

Mark 9....there are a lot of 60s and 70s Topps odd ball. Some easy. Some hard . Some impossible

Mark disappointing about your fondness for floating heads :-0

I pieced most the sets together with larger lots. Would mainly try to buy in bulk and flip the cards I didn't need. That worked pretty well for me throughout the run. It gets harder as the sets get older, but that's expected.

I have completed 1950 - 1955 Bowman. Still have 48 and 49 to go. I feel like 49 is going to be a beast with Jackie and Paige in there.

I have also gone after the Fleer sets as well with just 1961 left to complete.

So all in all, pretty solid progress. I doubt I'll ever dip into prewar, but ya never know. I really like the subsets from the 60s and 70s so I may jump on that ship. 1971 Topps Greatest Moments are just plain awesome.

Right now I have a little collector ADD, but I'm sure I'll straighten it out eventually.

There are a bunch of great Fleer baseball sets between 1963 and 1981
