Slowly working a few baseball sets:

T206 Southern League (Virginia League) - 8/12, 67%
1957 - 335/407, 82%
1964 Giants Auto'd - 50/60, 83%
1965 - 538/598, 90%
1972 (2nd set) - 762/787, 97%

Hoping to knock out the '57, '65, and '72 sets in 2019.

I needed only six cards to finish my 54 set and for Christmas my secret Santa got me two of the four commons I needed. Then my brother surprised me with a gift of two more commons that just happened to be the other two that I needed after my secret Santa sent me his two. So now I'm just down to the Aaron and Banks rookies. I'm sure I can get a Banks in my price range but the Aaron is out of my range so it'll be a while until I actually complete the set, but I'll be happy at 249 until then.

Default Set progress in 2018

Completed the Basic PSA player registry set of Allie Reynolds.

Down to 1 card in 1953 Topps - #244 Willie Mays.

Also down to 1 card in 1949 Bowman - #224 Satchel Paige.

After these two, will be looking for a new project. Need about 100 for 1963 topps. Maybe that's next.

Tony

Hallelujah!!!!!! My 1957 Topps set is finally complete after acquiring PSA 7's Bobby Richardson and Don Zimmer at nice discounts via the recent 15% off ebay coupons. This took a lifetime to accomplish, so I am feeling lucky and a bit psyched!!!

Robert the sets are raw but I have a couple graded in both, same with my 57, that I finished finally in 2017. these 3 sets are in decent shape so I think that's why its taking me so long to finish them.

jolly that 57 Richardson was a tough card wasn't it. it was 1 of the last cards I needed also for the set and I think I got it in SGC 7 grade.
congrats

Thanks, Fred. Yeah, it's one of those perfect storm sorta things for sellers. Not only a Yankees rookie card (of a player going down in history for grabbing McCovey's line drive to end the 1962 World Series) from an extremely popular set, but it happens to be in the tough middle/high-series. Oy vey. There are plenty of them on ebay, but the asking prices for ungraded ones are pretty crazy, so I made a decent offer on a PSA 7 and used the 15% off to make it a nice get in the end.

I know this should normally go in a different forum area... but I'm trying to avoid posting in areas that wouldn't be seen by the right people.

I recently took on a large consignment of cards mainly from the 50's and 60's. I have the ability to fill in gaps on sets from what I took in. The years are as follows:
Topps Baseball
1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1966, 1968, 1969

Topps 1958 Football

Please DM your lists of what you are trying to fill and I will respond first come first serve.

Thanks, Mike

Wow, my thread from way back is still alive. I dropped out of the card world for a bit there (classic car collecting kills card budgets...lol), but I AM BACK. Excited to be back as well. I sold all my sets 1967 and older (turned them into a completely restored 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint to add to that collection), and kept my 1968 to 1990 Topps sets. Currently working on 66 and 67 at the same time and just made some purchases to get me going (jumped right back into the deep end of the 60's pool..lol). So happy to be back, I missed it terribly. I can say though taking the break I did has really re-kindled my love of the hobby. Looking forward to joining back into the fray...right in time for spring training.

Thanks all!

John

Robert - in the spirit of you and I changing our minds on things every few weeks - wanted to let you know I'm reconsidering doing sets again. Bottom line, I think I need to find a way to be happy, to find the value in common cards. Because after this last month or so, if there is one thing I have learned - it's that I can't really afford myself or my hobby if I continue to only go down the road I have been.

Default Finally finished the 55 Bowman set!!!

I didn't realize it took so long but after checking old posts I completed my 55 Bowman set in a little over 3 years. The set includes all error/variations. My goal was to get every card from fellow Net54 members.

I would like to thank everyone I got cards from.

Not sure if I will ever try to put a set together card by card again because of the cost but it was fun.

Congrats. I finished the same set a few years ago, and I think it took about two years in total, trying to find deals on ebay for EX condition cards. It was the first set I had worked on in twenty some years and cost more than any of my other ungraded sets, since prices had climbed. My last five cards were umps and the Johnson variation - how about yours?

Since I got them all from forum members I just bought/traded for any I could find when I could find them. For me condition did not matter so there is everything from near mint to my Mantle that has a chunk the size of a 50 cent piece missing out of the back.

The Ernie Banks(2nd to last card) was the hard one for me but umpire Frank Dascoli was my last card.

I never kept track of prices but i know it would have been way cheaper to just buy a complete set. Most of the extra $ came from all the shipping charges.

Okay I'm a few months late...but better late than never... I recently completed my 1971 Topps Greatest Moments Set. Took me awhile to find them in lots and then piece by piece. Ricky Y

I finally polished off the 1953 Bowman color set this past weekend with a decent Bob Feller at a good price.

I'm starting work now on the B&W set. Shouldn't be too much trouble.

Once completed I'll have every Topps and Bowman set from 1950 to today (excepting the 52 Topps hi #)

And then there was one. I just need one more card to finish my 1955 Bowman baseball set. A mid grade Banks will complete the journey.

Just completed 61 Topps. The highs were not too bad. Was given about 50 highs and semi high's that were pasted into a scrapbook that damaged the backs. None were stars/HoF's and I can't read the backs w/o my reading glasses in a brightly lit room anyhow.

For the last card, I was in 2 ebay auctions, Jim Gentile and won both.
One is PSA 6 and raw VGEX and they were closer in price that I would think.

Over the past year, I've been slowly building the 52 Topps set. I focused on the low number stars initially and I'm currently only searching for a Pafko and Berra after today. I decided to pull the trigger on Deepstep19's Mays, so that's one of the larger pieces down. Trying to stay in the 5-6 range for all graded purchases. Have lucked out on a few fairly priced high grade raw lots as well.

Around 30% complete, so I have plenty of hunting to go.

Congrats on the set and the beautiful card. Now that one deserves a Purple sticker.

The back is a little rougher in that a crease appears that isn't visible from the front. Also there is a wax stain, which normally I'd be bummed about, but it actually served as the impetus for my latest article for the SABR Baseball Cards Research Committee.

That's awesome. I wouldn't be able to stand it lasting that long. My 1958T set took almost a year to complete. I started by trading for 8 cards and went at it card by card. Sometimes I'd trade for lots of a few, sometimes I'd have to trade for/buy singles. I wound up having $500 into it. It was probably Ex to Ex-Mt overall. I sold it about a year later for $1,500. Regret selling it all the time. But I tripled my money.

I'm trying to decide what set I want to build first since I sold the only vintage set I had ever put together (the 58s). So far I've gotten about 5-10 each from 1958T, 1967T and 1962T. I might go with one of those, but I've always loved the looks of the 1957T and 1961T sets.

Might try for something a little smaller. I'm really not sure what I want to do to be honest. I just know I want them in Ex or better condition, and I'm looking for a set that won't take a year or more to finish.

I would like to thank everyone I got cards from.

Not sure if I will ever try to put a set together card by card again because of the cost but it was fun.

I'm waiting for the last of my '71s to arrive. Looks good in the binder but other than finding decent corners and edges for reasonable prices it wasn't a huge challenge. Certainly didn't get the same feeling I had when I finished off the '62 for example.

I've had a nice lot of '57s waiting in the bullpen for over a year and now I'm ready to focus on that one. I'm at 120ish of 407 and heading to the card show today.

Less than 30 1967s to go towards a second set run since 1954.

How did you find 1967s from 1954 until 1966?

I am now 11 cards from completing my nrmt and centered 1960 topps set. Some of these cards have been really hard to find centered. The only commons I need are the rarely seen centered with sharp corners cards, Simmons, Richardson, Davis, Luis Swipes Base.
