Hardly any progress for me over the past 4-5 years. Life got in the way.

1964 Topps Giants - need Koufax, Mays, and a few commons.
1967 Topps - need Mantle and about 40 high numbers, including Seaver.
The Giants I'm looking for NM, the 67s, vg-ex.

Just completed a near mint 1971 set with all keys in PSA 7 holders. What a beast. 20% in on 1957 but finding it hard to find near mint lots as I love to buy, merge, upgrade, and purge. Last weekend I impulse bought complete 1960 and 1965 sets, which I'm going to tear down and rebuild. 1960 set arrived and is mostly sharp but 1965 is going to require a lot of work if I decide to keep it. Last night I bought a 213 near mint lot of 1960s so let the upgrading begin! I love examining the cards and deciding the condition winners and the losers. If I can't decide my wife is the tie breaker.

I have the best wife ever. I received my first Old Judge (Brooklyn, Smith batting) in the mail today from Old Judge (thanks, Old Judge!) and she liked the card so much she said, "Are there more?" Oh, yes dear, there are more. There are more.

Scott....that's a great wife for sure! Yes there are more Old Judge cards but not many wives would encourage going for that set

My own progress is coming along nicely. Just 91 more cards to complete my Topps Run from 1952 through 1980. That excludes the 52 highs that I am not interested in. The bulk of those needed are 67 Topps high numbers. I have all the cards from the 1953-62 years. I also have 1969-1980 done.

I have a few Bowman sets going, but only 1950 is complete.
I have a few prewar sets complete...T205, E95, E96 and E210-1.
I'm working on C46, E90-1, E210-2 , T212-2 and T212-3.
I upgrade occasionally on the prewar, but rarely on the Topps run as I don't mind G/VG or whatever I get to fill the binders.

All this activity has been after I swore off adding more sets. I was going to focus on my pre-war HOF collection which is my favorite portion of this sickness.
I want to acquire all of the HOFers from each of the main prewar sets. Yup, the grandest goal and likely unachievable. Still, I have made nice progress on that too

I sure could use some discipline to keep focused, but it's all good!

Really great projects everyone!

Very impressive devotion....something I lack as I get distracted with other cards I would rather have.

Presently working on a 73 set, with HoFr's graded 7 and above. Made sure to get them out of the way first, and now all I have to work on are commons.

Just over a third of the way done. Love the set!

I always buy the commons first and then the key cards (graded). Based on how pricing is going up it would probably be wise to follow your approach!

Finished a few sets so far this year....50, 52 and 55 Bowman. Started on 33 Goudey as well as 40 and 41 Playball sets....about 40% along with each of the 3.

Mainly focused on finishing my 52 Topps Set ... http://www.psacard.com/psasetregistr...set.aspx?s=100

Still working on 51, 53, & 54 Bowman sets(need approx. a dozen between the 3 sets), 18 cards short on 63 Post, 8 short on 68 MB Win a Card (baseball and FB). In addition, still working on 65-80 OPC sets....30% on 65-68, 69 complete, 80% on 70-72, 95% on 73, 75, 76, and complete with 77-80 (0 on 74s). None of these sets are priorities, just pickup cards when they are a bargain.

Finished 53-present Topps, 61, 62 Post sets, 60/61 Fleer sets

I too enjoyed reading about everyone's progress.

My sweet spot for collecting is 1970's and 80's. I have an ungraded run of Topps baseball complete from 1974-1986, Topps football from 1978-1981 and 1984-1987, Topps basketball 1977, and Topps hockey 1971. Most of these sets are NM or better on average. I also have a completely graded 1975 Mini set in NM-MT+ as well as an ungraded set in EX-MT condition on average. The Mini's are my favorite.

I'm currently working on an ungraded 1973 Topps baseball set which is 89% complete in about EX condition and a graded 1978 Topps basketball in Mint condition which is 68 percent complete. I'm also working on an ungraded 1971 Topps baseball set, which I'm completing by series. I have completed series 1 and 2 and will be starting series 3 soon. I've picked up most of the stars in the set, including the high numbers, all for less than $20 apiece. I think the only two stars I have left are the Yaz and Aparicio. I'm building the 1971 set without much regard to condition except that I want the cards to be readable, no writing, and not warped. Minor creases and wrinkles are accepted as are rounded corners and worn edges. I don't care much for scuffing of the surface. The average grade is VG/VG-EX.

Good luck to all building your sets!
