Congrats on completing that set. One of my favorites from the 60s.

Congratulations, Matt! 1967 is my favorite set, so I understand your elation. My last card (the first time I completed it) was Mike Shannon.

Well done.

My favorite set from the 1960s as well. Like you, I had great fun putting it together some years ago. I sold off most of my PSA set, but kept many of the HOFers.

I think most of the fun in this hobby is the hunt.

I still have my raw set and lots of dups accumulated along the way up the ladder.

Imagine though if Topps had put Nolan Ryan on the Seaver card instead of Bill Dennehy -

67 was early in my journey. I wish I had to do it all over again because I paid way too much for the low number commons along the way. I have nice high numbers - especially my Seaver and Carew. But, I wish I would have been more diligent with the low numbers.

Cool story, thanks for sharing. Gives me some encouragement, as I've recently decided to go for the whole '67 set myself. Right now I have a few high numbers (including Brooks), Clemente, Banks, and some other odds and ends. I will probably try to start working on the low number commons in earnest around Christmas time with some ebay lots.

Nice. Sixty-seven is a great set and certainly gives you a feeling of accomplishment when you've finally slayed the dragon.

At 30+ years though, you might want to speed up a bit on the next set.
