Are you planning to do graded sets. If so, what grades? I am working or have completed several of the sets mentioned here. Like you, I don't want to do a set with hundreds of cards. My biggest set is the 77 card 1964 Topps Stand-up. I need 7 or 8 cards to finish it.

One of the Topps Supers sets. Great player selection, beautiful unusual cards. And pretty cheap.

Yea I only collect graded cards. Or buy raw and grade. Everything that I keep ends up graded then into the safe.

Due to cost, smaller sets seem easier to accomplish in a semi timely manner for me personally.

As far as grades, I go with that I feel like I can afford prior to starting the set.

Not sure what place in line Iíll be with my strong suggestion of the 54 Red Heart but I highly recommend it.

Iíve built a few sets both small and large and the Red Heart was my favorite by far.

As mentioned there are only 33 cards in the set but 11 are Hall Of Famers giving it a 1 of 3 retail which as far as Iíve found if the best HOFer ratio in any vintage set.

When I built this set I focused on card appearance overall since I did it raw. The only two cards that cost more than $100 were the Mantle and the Musial. That being said it made it affordable overall. The entire set cost less than $1000.

You can build it quickly since they arenít so rare you have to wait forever to have a card pop up or you can be more selective and draw it out. It took me about two years to get the example of each card I wanted for the prices I was willing to spend.

The last point on it is itís one of the only sets I know of that can be displayed in its entirety if you so desire. To see them all at once with the three distict background colors makes this set really pop in my opinion.

Anyway, whichever set you choose love doing it and it wonít be the wrong choice.

Good luck!

Drew

I really agree with this - the Topps Super sets are beautiful, especially the 1970 and 1971. I know you said pre-1970, Nick, but these 2 supers sets are beautiful and have nearly all the 60s era stars like Mays, Aaron, Clemente, Gibson, plus early cards of the great 70s players like Bench, Rose, Jackson, Seaver

I'll take a look. Thanks for the advice.

Don't give up on the '69 Topps Super set either. Much better looking (IMHO) than the ginormous '70 and '71 cards and if my history is correct, 1969 comes before 1970.

1969 Topps Supers

The 1969 Super Set is one of the most beautiful sets ever made, but a little pricey. The 1970 set at 42 cards would be a good choice.
