Good Morning.

I'm doing this set as well. Currently:

780/792 98% - Base
115/132 86% - Traded

895/924 98% - Overall

Down to last few baddies. Always paying top dollar for the ones I don't have.

As part of a holiday gift, I received Al Pulido's 1987 Topps card signed from PastPros.

Nice gift from PastPros! They are great to deal with. I have interacted with them personally on many occasions.

Out of curiosity what do those of you actively pursuing the set do about the checklists? I had a thought to have Peter Ueberroth sign them as he was commissioner in 1987. Does anyone have other ideas of who would be best to put on them? Or do you simply discount these cards?

I have them signed by people who were involved in the 1987 year but don't have a card.

I was a big A's fan growing up, so I have some obscure A's people for some of the checklists.

#128 - I have 2 outstanding requests. Mike Gallego (A's) and Joe Wathan (Cubs interim manager).

#264 - Sandy Alderson - A's GM in 1987

#392 - Working on Dave Duncan, Rene Lachemann, and Dave McKay (A's coaches in 1987)

#522 - Frank Lucchesi (Royals 3d manager after Howser and Gardner)

#654 - Billy Williams w/ HOF 1987 inscription

#792 - Peter Uebberoth (Commissioner in 1987) - great signer but he signs in ballpoint (I've tried twice - both ballpoint and one signed on the back)

#132T - Walt Weiss w/ Oakland A's 7/12/1987 inscription - Debut

I may upgrade some of the CLs. Thinking McGwire and Santiago w/ 87 ROY inscriptions, Frank Viola w/ 87 WS MVP Inscription, Bell and Dawson w/ 87 MVP inscriptions, or Clemens and Bedrosian w/ 87 Cy Young inscrptions. Takes some cash as McGwire w/ an inscription runs $155 through a private signing on SCN. I'm also picky as Big Mac had a very different signature early on than he does now. My Mac #366 has the old signature.

I won't upgrade the Williams HOF, Ueberroth, or Weiss Traded.

Also - I have Bill Mazeroski on the Clemente TBTC since they were teammates and Maz is a HOFer. Most people seem to try for his kid or wife. I'd rather have Maz, that's just me.

If you have any other questions about this set (players, returns, etc), let me know. I'm pretty far submerged in it so I feel that I have a lot of knowledge on this particular set.

Those are some neat ideas. I sent the checklists to Ueberroth and included a Sharpie. He signed all in rapid fashion but like you, he signed the backs. I considered resending with sticky notes on the back to indicate to sign the other side.

I like the Maz idea on the Clemente TBTC. He's not terribly hard to get and there's a strong connection there.

I really like the idea of the HOF guys from that year. Too bad I never thought of that while Catfish and Dandridge were alive. That would've been a neat solution for half of the 6 checklists.

I started collecting in '86 so I'm pretty knowledgeable on the set, who the toughies are, variations of signatures (I have the rookie era Big Mac sig as well), etc. I never focused on completing the set but as I've collected over the years I've gotten 500+ different done, so I thought I'd try to see how close I could get without putting a ton of effort into it. I'll probably never pay up for Dick Howser, and I know Ricky Wright is next to impossible. Even the ones that have sold for prices far beyond what I'd be willing to pay have questionable authenticity. It's a great set though and brings me back to my early days in the hobby.

Thanks for the input!
