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 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.
My hobby blogs: Five Tool Collector 1959 Topps Baseball 1958 Topps Baseball 1960 Topps Baseball

Current Projects: 1961, 1971 and 1975 Topps Baseball, 1953 Bowman Football

Player Collections: Billy Pierce, Charles Bender, Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Elston Howard, Mike Cuellar Always looking for unique Billy Pierce items
