Thanks Shawn! I'm pretty excited about it. Wasn't sure I would ever finish that run.

A great question, Mike. These two sets are the most difficult to complete in the run.

From a pure scarcity perspective, Spalding is hands down the most difficult set to complete in the run. Nine of the fifteen cards in the set (I'm including the Grange promo card in here) have a total known population of less than 10 cards. This includes both graded cards in the population report as well as the raw ones I'm aware of that pre-war collectors have. I've been able to catalog a total of only 135 of these cards I know exist. That is sick!

By comparison, there are 16 Mayo Dunlop cards in the population report. From a cost perspective, Mayo is more difficult. The set is more than twice as big as the Spalding set and the Dunlop is very expensive ... going for between $6K - $12K for a low grade example (which most are). There are a few other that are hard to get under $1K too (like Hinkey and Poe). Of course you can always purchase one raw off ebay that somebody found in their grandpa's attic for much less

Packages are opened, dinner is still two hours away and my girls are in various stages of getting ready so I have a few quiet moments on this beautiful Christmas morning.

I hope to add more several more cards to each of the sets from 1894 Mayos through 1969. All sets are at least started several in the 50's are completed and a few just have a handful of cards.

My main goals are to cross of the 1935 Chicle Nagurski and finish the 1952 Bowman Large.

Also I want to add more pre-1940 University of Arkansas game programs, I did finish their media guide run 1945-on in 2017 with the elusive (at least for me) 1949!

I also want to add more media guides for all of the Arkansas small colleges as well as more guides from what I have chosen as the top 78 schools in the country from 1945-69. My list includes all the traditional majors plus the Ivys and William & Mary, the last is for sentimental reasons. We visit Colonial Williamsburg every other year.

As you can see my focus is very broad thus not many fast completions.

- Start collecting the 1965 Topps set (I already own a mid-grade Namath RC). I think I will go after the Fred Biletnikoff RC next because it looks to me to be the 2nd most popular card in this set.

- 1959 Bazooka, especially the Jimmy Brown.

I second that..........great set with some wonderful AFL cards. Not to mention short prints but the main effort is the style and class of this set. This was the first football set I ever completed graded. It was a tough mountain to climb finacially but it was worth it.

Default Hopefully in 2018...

I just finished my 1960 Topps and 1968 Topps sets. I'm hoping to complete the remainder of the 1960's by the end of 2018. I'm missing a handful of cards to finish several sets. I've already completed 1956 and 1958 Topps, so if I can get this done, I'll be down to just finishing the 57 set (24 more cards) and 59. Oh, and 31 high numbers left from 1972. Everything else I have up until the present for what I collect. This would get me to the point where I can concentrate on the Bowman, Leaf and Chicle cards (well, and still work on the other sports as well).
