I actually had this entire set about 20 years ago. Bought it in one shot from a guy in Canada in the Montreal area named I believe Ronald V. I was probably better in condition that what I have now. He had mentioned the Paille and that it was substituted in the printing process for checklist #55. That is just a rumor which is why I asked about uncut sheets of either series.
I really like all aspects of this set. The card format, the fact that there is difficultly in assembling and tougher Sp's. My goal is a decent VG set with unmarked checklists.
The set pre-dates my following hockey, being in the boston area that began in the Orr era.
Interested in all comments regarding this set and happy holidays.

Four months later I have added just ONE card. Of the nine cards I need, seven are SPs. What a challenge!

current wants:

1964-65 Topps (033 SP) (072 Dornhoefer SP RC) (074 VillemureSP) 085 (091 SP) (092 Paille SP) 102 (105 Horton SP) (106 Makita SP)

Thx for your reply. This is a good piece. This is my favorite set to collect. Has all 6 teams represented and a challenge. Regarding the Sp's, all are not pricewise created equal and that's a question for all.

The way I figure it: Position on the sheet dictates centering difficulty and therefore higher prices. Although these higher prices for certain sp'd have translated to lesser condition cards higher than other. Example: Horton AS v Hicke.

I'll also say that the Lower 1-55 sp's, now known, should not command a significant premium due to many more 1-55's being available than 56-110.

Again feedback welcome.

Hi Bill
I also purchased a near set of the 1964-65 Topps from Ron Villeneuve (not sure of the spelling) from Montreal in the mid-1980's (it was missing only #33 Beliveau)). One of the best purchases ever--Ron had great stuff in sets or near sets and all in ex/mt or better shape. All together i picked up about 10 Parkie and 10 Topps sets from him (mostly $100-200 per set)--I could never have put the set together today as i would cost thousands and the divorce would break me

Since my last post I have upgraded this set quite a bit. In fact I have 2 sets of the sp's going as I found hat as long as I was patient, I could get there. My new takeaways are this: Within the 1st series sp's, Bobby Hull 320 and Beliveau #33 are tougher to find in ex or better condition. some of that may have come with the sp 1st series discover. regarding the 2nd series sp, the 2 allstars, Horton and Mikita command the premium, not paille as I once thought. 74 villemure and 91 nesterenko seem to be lower than the rest. Also ted Lindsey and bucyk centered are tough. I tried to stick with the ex range on most cards to rationalize my spending. Cheers.

Great stuff. I am so PO'd at myself for getting out of older hockey cards before the boom(s). I am always looking to replace some of the tall boys I sold but I just haven't been able to bring myself to pay up for them.

I added scans of my 1964-65 set to my Imageevent site to share with other collectors. I only collect in raw condition, but feel most would grade in the ex/mt range with some better. The only card i believe to be below EX would be the tough Tom Williams #59 card which would likely grade VG.
