Congratulations on completing your run! Ive always liked his 1991 Topps card with the 77 a close second.

Congratulations! Beautiful collection! That '77 is a beauty. Do you also have a high grade 1982 Topps In Action? That was one of my faves as a kid...and your avatar as well!

Thanks, guys! I appreciate the kind words. I've been working on the Fisk Basic (overall set) for around three or four years now, and was able to finish the Topps part of it last week. Still have a ways to go on the rest, since I am looking to get all the remaining cards in PSA 10. Like Andrew, I have multiples of all of these cards in less pristine shape - but many of those have strong sentimental value. When I picked Fisk as my favorite player as a kid, my grandfather used to scour the flea markets and buy me every Fisk card and item he could, and bring them to me when they visited. So those cards are part of my "official" Fisk binder and have enormous sentimental value. I decided to do the high grade basic version as a way to keep my Fisk collection going (too hard to keep up with the modern issues) and think of collecting these cards with my grandfather.

Al, I still haven't tracked down the 1974 Deckle for my PC. I lost out on a PSA 8 at auction a few years ago, so it continues to elude me. Whenever I look for it on eBay, it's never there, or was recently sold. I wish I had looked after he got busted sleeping off a drunken night in the cornfield.... That's probably the biggest hole in my collection. I'll have to keep an eye out for that '81 Coke proof - I'm sure you'll get to it before me.

Jason, that '82 in action card is the best! And super expensive when graded! I think I'll just stick to the one my grandfather got me - it's NM and looks great in the binder. (for now - haha)

And my favorite is probably the 1974 - that horizontal shot with Fisk in the center, ready to make a play, the crowd in the background - it looks like a still from a movie. But I also love the '77, '91 and '75 cards.

Thanks again for all of the comments. It was fun to line 'em all up like that and share.

An interesting story ( to me anyway ) about the 82 In Action card. When I was putting together my Topps 1982 Blackless set card 111 was listed in some checklists as a Blackless card, even though it comes from sheet D and the consensus is that all the Blackless cards come from sheets A,B or C. His regular card ( 110) and All Star card (544) do exist in Blackless

I did end up with a Fisk 111 In Action card that is missing some black. One seller calls it and similar cards with that defect from the D sheet "Blacklessing"....you can not make this stuff up. The black features on such cards are more gray than black. Maybe a case where the black ink ran low ( all of the Blackless cards can also be found in transition gray) ? If so all D cards could possibly be found with that defect. Or maybe it is just faded ( does black fade in sunlight ?)

Anyway, I picked up the "blacklessing Fisk" to put with my Blackless set because of the early hobby confusion about whether it should be in that checklist. ( It should not and as far as I know is not anymore)

Default Fisk 111

Or you could just let PSA incorrectly label a 111 as Blackless Al! Haha
They seem to have an extremely tough time with blackless cards.
