Inspired by a friend who is working a half dozen Topps sets of various years and putting them in binders for easy viewing, I'm going to undertake a similar project of my own.

I'm going to build a "binder set" of 1976 Topps - the Topps set from the year of my birth!

So, what is a binder set? It's got non-high end, non-graded cards, perfect for flipping through without risking any major investments.

I'll probably aim for an average of EX for the set, with a range of VG-NM depending on what I come up with. Some of these cards might be a bit dinged up. At 43, I'm a little dinged up too.

To add to the fun, I'll likely pick up graded copies of some of the more interesting stars from the set. If I get a graded copy of a card, I'll still get a non-graded for the binder, but may allow for lower grade there to help keep costs in check.

Depending on what I get for duplicates, I may even dabble in some TTM autograph chasing.

I think this will be fun. My 7 year old son will be helping me with the sorting, so it's a nice father-son project!

Now...the 1976 Topps set has 660 cards. Here is the checklist.

The biggest rookie in the set is Eckersley, with cards of Hank Aaron and Nolan Ryan among the more expensive cards in the set.
I actually have several in binders. Let me know if you're interested and I can take a closer look as to what I have.

Nice Morgan Mike. Always wondered why his helmet appeared to be airbrushed on that card?

The photo also appears to have been selected for NOT showing the uniform front. I wonder if there was thinking that Morgan would be traded?

I'm confused, you just ordered a #330 Nolan Ryan but back on October 15 you said that you picked up this PSA 8 #330 Nolan Ryan ?

I have about 200 Topps 75 minis if you want to trade and work on this set as a project.

Thanks...I'll keep that in mind. I just have started over the last few days thinking about what may be next.

I'm toying with 1975, 1977, or 1974. '75 has some pricey rookies (which is good and bad), but has condition sensitivities. '74 and '77 don't have the high dollar rookies, so may be a bit easier.

Sorry for confusion...ordered an ungraded version to put in the binder (I hate gaps) and will keep graded version in the slab separately.

Ordered #504 Danny Murtaugh & #545 Sparky Lyle...meaning the Aaron card is the last card I need to complete the set!

That feels fitting, somehow. It'll be a nice card to complete the set, for sure.

Still plenty of cards that could use an upgrade, but for now I have prioritized completing the set.

Default A Look Ahead

Took the mini "windfall" from the sale of the 1976 Topps dups and put it towards:

1977 Topps Baseball Starter Set (410 Different) BV $294 Avg Ex/Mt to Nm Palmer - $57.01



LOT OF 50: 1977 TOPPS COMMON CARDS - $5.91



Guess that answers the "What's next?" question.

I reckon I best be ordering another binder soon.

In the meantime, though....gotta stay focused on wrapping up the '76 Topps set!
