I just added 12 cards last night, including this one. I seen a couple/few cards I wanted but I guess I got carried away!

I still need a Pafko and Rizzuto, to name a few as well, but I am glad to finally knock this Snider off my list.

I never knew that, Al? What is it exactly?

I paid $88.00 for that one, which might be a tad high, but I was getting tired of losing out every time I did try.
I happened to place a bid with seconds to spare and couldn't believe my luck finally changed!

Nice Snider. Great color on that card. Is it a red back? The color is usually better on the red backs.

Thanks!

It's a red back.

Snider has a front variant as well, a recurring bottom border irregularity. Not a true variation like the red and black back versions, but it was listed in the Huggins Super Set list. I can send you scan Irv if you want one. Not sure if it shows up in the never ending variations thread, or where it is if it does

That would be great, Al.

I looked briefly today but all the info I could find was on the red/black backs, nothing about any variations?

The first 5 series will be simple though, so I wouldn't even worry about those, you can get those any time. The prices aren't going up on mid grade 1972's any time soon unless they are the high numbers.

I'd say if you want to do set in series, START with the final series .
It's not as easy to find the high numbers in big lots, but that's obviously preferred. I started a second set, and I filled it in no time with the lower series cards. I am stuck now for the second time chasing those psycho high numbers!

If I do it again (I am prone to silly acts like building multiple sets ), I would only get high numbers and then fill in the set in reverse!

And to reply with an update of my own run 1952 -1980 Topps is down to 25 cards. I exclude the 52 high numbers. I am going to a card show today where I think I can get 5 hits. Whoot!
A quick update: I thought Brian's suggestion made sense so I decided to pursue the high #'s first and I am making steady progress. I have about 30% of the high #'s already and have enjoyed looking for bargains and competing in auctions. There are obviously many working on this set, but I am having a blast with this project. I hope to complete the high #'s by the end of the year. The rest should be a breeze compared to this series!

Irv,

The Snider has a "bubble" on the bottom black border

I'm a little over 95% complete on the Willie Mays Master Set (297 required items). The list below, once my latest PSA submission comes back, are the remainder needed. The 62 bazooka can be had in a panel and cut up, but ideally don't want to do that. The rest are proving difficult and will require patient. I'm still not convinced the "left side" 68 American Oil exists. If if does, would love to see a picture. If anyone can help on the others, I'd buy or trade for them.
