My favorite pre 1980 Topps set is the 1954 set. I'm getting closer to killing my set but still will need the Aaron for a while I'm sure. All the rest should be doable though.

As for your picks, those are my two favorite sets from the 70's for sure.
I'm always looking for t206's with purple numbers stamped on the back like the one in my avatar.

I like them simple 57 Topps 61 and my personal favorite 69. 72 I must agree was a fun set to collect as a kid.

For me it's always going to be 1972. All of the odd players chosen for the 'In Action' subset, the trippy-looking team names, the bizarre inclusion of trophies, the vaunted high numbers and the shear volume of cards makes the album quite enjoyable to look through.
Check out my bucket(s). Virtually everything is available for trade:

My favorite is 1963, but my favorite from the 1970's is probably 1978. 1978 was the first set that I actually finished.
