Default Fisk Topps Basic Set - complete!

Just completed my Topps Basic set after looking for highest grades I could find/afford. Wanted to share it with the board since my wife and daughter aren't overly impressed.

Vert nice. How many more to do a master set ? Maybe that would impress them :-)

Love this, really cool to see!

I was thinking of doing the same for Fisk.

I've done this for Nolan Ryan x5....but not in graded form.

Love the Fisk run. Dedicated player collections are fun to see, my Kurri graded Topps/OPC run is one of my highlights. Fisk had some great looking cards in the '70s. Thanks for sharing with those of us who appreciate it.

Nice run of Fisk. Can never see enough player runs posted. Thanks for posting. How long have you been working on the Topps run?

I don’t collect Fisk per se but think I have all his Topps cards as part of my sets. For a long time I could not find his 74 Deckle in white back and it was the only one I needed to finish the set that way. ( Had the set already done in gray back)

Then read something about him ending up drunk in a cornfield somewhere and shortly thereafter someone offered the white back.


There was an auction not long back of about 100 1981 Topps Coca Cola unissued proof cards of Fisk as a White Sox, all in one lot. It went for a lot. I keep hoping whoever got it will start selling some of them but have not seen one so far

I love it! Nice work. So many good looking Fisk cards, gosh he got some great action shots. What's your favorite card of the bunch? I've always loved the 91. As a kid, seeing big Cecil in that card made it a favorite of mine. But looking them all over now, I may be more partial to the 83.
