I'm currently 90.22% complete with my 1972 Topps Basic set, all PSA. (Warning: this link is scan heavy!) https://www.psacard.com/psasetregist...c/album/122763

My goals changed a little as I learned more about the set, as I became more gainfully employed, and after I got married. Also for some silly reason, I initially wanted the main card of a player to be a the same or higher grade than the In Action card that followed it. Now I don't mind, especially after I submitted a raw Glenn Beckert In Action and it received a 10--I'll just stick with the main Beckert as a 9 and be happy. The main goals that haven't changed are: All cards 8 or better, star cards 9 or better, overall set grade 8.5 or better, no qualifiers. Tried to emphasize centering as the primary regarding condition.

I have an excel spreadsheet that is beyond extensive and nerdy. I know the date I purchased a card in my set, the grade, the serial number, what I paid for it, and whether I should upgrade it later. I can copy and paste the population report and SMR prices from PSA's site into it and it will update. I have a tab that shows what card was printed where on what series and sheet (one * or two **), and I can even visually type in the bars from a PSA ITF 2 of 5 bar code to find out what the actual number is.

Down to 1 card left for 52 Bowman Baseball: Enos Slaughter. Had one in my hand at today's show, but it was a bit too costly. So I'm on ebay today and hope to finish this almost 2 year quest.

Down to 55 cards for Topps 67 baseball too. Mostly commons though I will have to upgrade one or two stars down the road.

Glad you like! I started off doing raw only way back in 1995 or so but I got burned by an eBay seller that brightened his scans and washed out rubber band dents and even staple holes, so I decided to try graded only. I knew it would cost a heck of a lot more, but this set is basically a birth year set (born in '71, but didn't want to tackle the black bordered cards because I knew it would cost even more and I'd never finish) and I wanted to spend the time trying to pick out the higher quality ones that would not completely wipe out my finances. I'll try to make it some sort of family heirloom unless I'm wise enough to dump it for potable water and dried rations before the apocalypse happens.

Your photobucket has some exceptionally tough 72's in it as well. Why not grade?

Down to needing 6 cards to finish my 55 Bowman set. 242, 277, 291, 293, 302, and 307.

Starting a beater 59 Fleer Ted Williams set. Just started with a 13 card lot so have 67 to go. If you have some beaters for sale please let me know.

My first ever foray into the graded world was as part of a group submission last fall, and man, that did not work out as expected. Except for a few centered 1972 'In Action' cards (Vida Blue, Bob Barton, Pops) that came back as 8's and a 9 (Tom Seaver), it left me puzzled. So I'm a bit reluctant at the moment to send in anything else.

I did fairly well on my 1972's for submission but I was very harsh on them. I scanned them at 1200 dpi, analyzed their centering in Photoshop, tilted them in the light to see if there were any surface issues, all kinds of forensic stuff. Odd thing is I expected 10's on a few and received 9's, and the few 10's I received I thought I would get an 8.5 or 9.

If you submit them using a monthly special that costs around $6 something each it isn't so bad.

I have several sets completed, but I disagree with the person who said the 1956 Topps set is NOT complete with out the two unnumbered checklists. They may be unnumbered, but they go with the set.
