Spend far less by not worrying about the tiny differences of a dinged corner or crease.
If you are not chasing NR Mint Art Mahaffey or Lou Klimchock for 10x the price of a well loved common, your budget will go much farther

Same with the stars...you either have a 1954 Willie Mays or you don't....the price between fair/good and NR mint is ridiculous if you are mainly interested in filling the set
Nothing better than finding a well centered 1956 Clemente with amazing color... and a well placed crease at the bottom right. Great eye appeal, for a small fraction of the price.

With Bob G Miller in the house I'm now just a Twins Team card from finishing my 1962 set. It's been a grind.

My 1970 Topps Basketball set is now complete. Or will be when my last (Leroy Ellis) card arrives. It was returned to sender (unknown recipient/no forwarding address!?!?) for some odd reason...the eBay seller had the correct address (I've lived here for 35 years). The seller reached out to me and is resending and refused to let me help with the postage. I'll be glad to put that one to bed.

I’m down to six cards for my ‘54 Topps set after grabbing these two...



I still need both Williams, Mays, Aaron, Kaline and Banks...though I already have Banks and Kaline in lower grade SGC examples. Probably shooting for PSA 6 for all by Aaron...I’ll probably do the best centered PSA 5 for Aaron.

In the pre-war, updated counts are for 1933 Goudey need is now 29, 34 Goudey need 19, 34-36 Diamond Stars need 19, 1939 Play Ball need 8, and 1940 Play Ball need 11.

Also working on the Kelloggs run and only need 16 from the tough 1971 set and 2 from the 1972 set.

Finally, have started on the 1948-49 Leaf set - only the non-short prints - need 15 of those.
Having received #2 Tom Seaver from the 1971 set today - marking the completion of the Kellogg's run - I am checking in on my set building progress.

The Bowman run seems stuck on the final 5 cards in the 1949 set. They include the Big 3 (Robinson, Paige, Snider) but also two other toughies: Preacher Roe and Dave Ferriss.

I have been making great progress on the pre-war front (low to mid-grade):
- 1933 Goudey need 13 (including Lajoie)
- 1934 Goudey need 12
- 1934-36 Diamond Stars need 11
- 1939 Play Ball need 2 (including Williams)
- 1940 Play Ball need 3 (including DiMaggio and Shoeless Joe)
- 1941 Play Ball is complete

I have completed almost every Robert Laughlin related set out there - still seeking the "Erorrs" set and the "Sports Slang" set. PM me if you have a line on either of those.

The hunt continues!

Finished off my '62 baseball and '70 basketball sets and swore I'd take a break from serious set chasing. But that didn't work out.

At the local hotel show last month I came across a nice 1961 starter lot in a binder for under 60 cents a card. Added a really cheap lot via eBay (nice condition for the price!) and find myself about 60% through with it already. A bit less than that for the higher cost star cards.

My other set builds have taken a back seat and are creeping along.

Finally finished off my 1967 Topps set with the addition of a beautiful Rocky Colavito high number. Now I will await the next ebay 15% coupon to try to knock off the last couple of 1957's I need.
