I haven't updated in a while, so here goes. I am up to 196 different cards for my 1962 Topps set. I've traded for most and have a whopping $2 into it.

I bought the Maris for $50 and a lot of probably 50 different from Northviewcats for $42 ($92). I then turned around and traded the Maris for a Baugh RC and Jimmy Brown 2nd year card (1959). From there, I sold the Baugh for $90 after fees/shipping, so am back down to having $2 into the set.

That said, I don't have any of the major stars like Maris, Mantle, Mays, etc. But have several of the Ruth cards, LL cards (Clemente, Koufax, etc.) and several other HOFers (Marichal, Spahn, Brooks Robinson, etc.). So I'm making progress on it.

I also finished the 1974 Topps set, but now I'm going back through and upgrading. I'm having to upgrade about 60 of the cards, including 4-5 HOFers. The majority of them are being upgrading due to creasing, severe centering issues or just being rough (rounded corners, tears on the edge, etc.).

Finally, I bought a nice starter lot of about 400 different 1971 Topps cards. Included about 50 high #s as well as some various stars. Pulled about 20 or so that were creased or had severe centering issues, paper loss, etc. So about halfway down with that set. Haven't started working on it yet.

Matt, I have a bunch of T205 in the trade thread in case you are interested. They are all SGC graded.

Id sell or trade but I do have a pending bulk deal that might take some / all of them ( there is over 100 of them to choose from). First come first served

14 more to go, a few trades possible that I should be down to 12.

That’s all Topps sets from 1953 to 1980.
It includes low numbered 1952 set too.

It’s over 14,000 complete with just a dozen to go!

Added one more '64 Giants auto (D. Ellsworth) thanks to a contact in CA who saw him at the Fresno Grizzlies Hot Stove Banquet.

Now at 47/60 and the road is getting steeper.

I'm still working on the 55 Bowman baseball set. Down to 34 cards (includes variations). I didn't get to work on it much over the last year, so hopefully I can do more this year.

Just completed the 1958 Topps set...494 cards plus a Bazooka contest card and felt-emblem giveaway card. I had a Maris rookie from when I was a kid in the 1970s and some of the other key cards, but still had to acquire about 160 cards since December. Last card I needed was #255 Bob Turley. Now I'm trying to complete 1959...
