As a child, and collector, of the '70s, those are the sets I am working on. I am close or complete with most of the hockey and football, but have only the '74 and '76 complete in baseball, with fifty to go on '77.

I have greatly enjoyed the process of building, or mostly rebuilding, these sets, and will expand to basketball when I'm a little closer to closing out the rest.

I admire you guys who are working on and completing the sets of the '50s and '60s, maybe I will get there some day. But for now, I'll enjoy my journey while admiring the pick-ups that get shown on the board.

For me, I always had a goal of completing the entire Topps run from 1952-1992 (when cards really became a whole different world than what I fell in love with as a kid).

Complete (all ungraded - all in ex-mt to nm condition as I put every set together by hand):

1958 master set including yellow letters
1960
1962 master set including green tints
1964
1966-1992

After finalizing the T206 set completely PSA graded (but for the big 4) I decided to go after the PSA "big 3" sets so now working on a PSA graded 1952 set (14.5% complete) and PSA graded 1933 Goudey set (8.75% complete). Furthermore, because I am completely looking for a painful set I decided to throw in working on completing the 1914 Cracker Jack set as well (78/144).

Will come back in and finish the '53,'54,'55,'56,'57,'59,'61,'63, and '65 over the next few years. (have to have something to do)


Long live the set collector - the true lifeblood of the industry
Very impressive collection. Good luck on your quest to finish other sets.

I just purchased the last card for my 1972 Topps baseball set this morning! (the #559 Pete Rose card). I have enjoyed putting this set together, but it is a beast.

Default Partial Sets, groups & Complete set 1952-1972

While I posted that my current auction is open on the main board this morning, most people think of it as a pre-war auction.

I would like to post here to let you know there is a large number(nearly 200 lots) of starter sets, partial sets, groups, singles and complete sets from 1952 Topps thru 1972, along with some Bowman and Fleer.

All can be seen at www.brockelmanauctions.com and registration is on the front page if you are not already registered.

Default new year.......new goals

Happy to say I ventured mostly away from graded cards and am currently working on the 1964 Topps baseball and 1967 Topps baseball set (for my dad). Its going to be fun to put together these raw sets and a challenge I'm sure for some of the cards. May also venture into the 1963 and 66 sets but don't have a single card from those years as of yet. Also going to work on a 64 Topps football set. Just wanted to share and enjoy reading others ventures.


So heres what I'm working on this year
1964 Topps Baseball
1967 Topps Baseball
1977 Topps Baseball
1978 OPC Baseball
1978 Topps Baseball
1979 Topps Baseball
1984 Donruss Baseball

1964 Topps Football

hit me up if anybody has any extras floating around and we can trade etc..


Happy Collecting!!

Robert, is that ALL you have going?? I have also veered to mostly ungraded 60s sets (football right now....getting the itch to build a 60s baseball set---but leary of how many cards are in some of those sets). Some of the "big" cards might be slabbed, but other than that, they are ungraded, and I am loving it! I got on a prewar kick last year (it is now over) and, like a moron, sold off my 2/3 complete 65 baseball set. Wish I had not done that!

Right now I am over halfway finished with a 65 Philadelphia football set. After that, it will probably be another 60s football set and probably a 60s baseball set. I am undecided on which one though. I have actually thought about 67 Topps. About what grade range you going for on your 67?

Awesome Robert!!!! Wow I didn't know you were selling that 65 topps set...ouch. I'm going for vg or better on all cards for the 67 set Robert. Its going to be slow cause I can't see paying high money for the high number cards especially commons. Never made sense to me. They say.....and who are they????...lol, that they might be short print but I also said that of the 65 topps football SP's and there never seemed to be a shortage out there on ebay, etc etc. Anyway sorry to rant. Good to hear from you brother! I think I have a few 65 phillys here at home and if I find em .......they are yours brother. Still have your address and phone number. Take care and hope to hear from you soon

Appreciate the kind words! I sold the 65 baseball, not the football. I hear ya loud and clear on paying for those high #s. That is part of what has given me a little pause about the 67s. I have looked on ebay at several of the 67 highs. In many cases, there doesn't appear to be a shortage, I agree. I also will be moving slow, I am sure. Best of luck on all of your projects! I'm sure we'll be talking!!

Sounds good brother. I will pull those Phillys for ya........any other football sets your wanting to start. LMK and I will see what I have on hand. I have a hoard of NMMT or better 81 topps football I got from a vending box if you ever wanna start that set. And if you have any extra 67's hit me up.

Thanks for thinking of me. I don't have any 67s at the moment. If I end up going that route and end with any dupes, I will definitely think of you. Have fun!
