Well, I have complete sets of 65, 66, and 69 Topps. Before leaving the 60s, I hope to build all three Fleer sets, 65 and 66 Philadelphia, and 68 Topps. Those are top priorities and will take years. After that, maybe 1961 Topps and maybe 1962 Topps, but I am afraid my OCD and those black borders might just do me in! And there's always 51 and 52 Bowman!

Along the way I will also add a few 1910 Obaks to satisfy my prewar baseball urges.

All subject to change of course, but that is my "plan."

Well you are going to be busy with these for sure. The Fleer and Philly sets are underappreciated in my view. Curious why '67 is absent from your set list both for Topps and Philly. Just not a fan of these designs?

You know there's 4 Fleer sets, right? 60-63.

Jeff,

Those sets will keep me busy for quite a while. I really like all of them! 61 Fleer will probably be where I still start. Although 63 is pretty cool, too. I left off 1960 Fleer and both 1967 sets because I am just not a fan of any of them.

I understand completely. Not my favorite designs either!

Most of my sets are raw but do have some graded stars to share.

Sweet stuff, Jeff! Thanks a ton for sharing. I think instead of everything being graded like I was initially thinking, I believe my commons will be ungraded. Are your raw cards all in binders or do you have any in CardSavers or toploaders? ?

Right now my raw cards are in binders. Any raw stars are in plastic sleeves inside the binder pages. I am considering moving my small sets from 9 slot binder pages to 4 slot binder pages so I can put each card in a CardSaver first and then into a binder page. Or I may just do that with stars and put the 4 slot binder pages at the end of my binders with the commons still in 9 slot pages.

As I upgrade my sets, Carl's comments about raw cards in binders with no other protection is gnawing on me.

Yeah, I have to agree with Carl. Of the sets that I do have in a binder, all of them have some type of extra protection. If you are sticking with binders, you will be glad if you add a little extra protection. I really fell in love with the idea of sets in a binder and still love the idea, but the execution never really equals what I hoped for. Whether it is cards in Cardsavers in 4 pocket pages then in Unikeep binders or the Toploader binders, I just didn't like it the way I thought I would. It is hard to explain, but they are just clunky to me. To each his own, but I have tried it both ways and like graded cards/raw cards in Cardsaver I s in white vault boxes/corrugated boxes made for graded cards. Best of luck to you as you upgrade/reorganize. You have a nice collection.

There are some tricks another collector taught me to help minimize the likelihood that your cards will be damaged when in binders and they do make a big difference.

1. Pages should fill up the binder until it is completely rectangular. If they don't, you are using the wrong size binder for that set. If you are in between sizes, pad the inside of the binders with additional paper until they are completely full. This stops pages from curling and/or sliding down inside the binders and potentially bending your cards.

2. Use good quality binder sheets. The thicker the sheets, the less likely they are to bend or slide

3. Put your cards in plastic sleeves before inserting them into binder pages. You can do lots of damage to your cards by dinging the corner when putting them in or taking them out.

4. Always store your binders upright. Binders stored on their side will sometimes bend pages, particularly if you don't make them rectangular

One of the reasons why I like binders is that I put other things associated with the set in it as well. I am working on short write-ups for each set that go in the front of the binder. Also have a page (or pages) for the wrappers for each set. Trying to get a complete run of wrappers too. If there were inserts, I put those in pages at the end.

Here is one method that some other Net54 members put me onto. I think Adam (exhibitman) was the first. These binders come from unikeep.com. I put the cards (in this case 1953 Topps baseball ) in penny sleeves then into Card Saver I s and then into Ultra-Pro 4 pocket pages. I need to go back and add a little two sided tape, but it works pretty well. I am toying with the idea of using this with my upcoming football sets. The binders are completely closed, light, and stackable. Sorry for the world class photography.
