Don't feel like the Lone Ranger on this. There are a lot of us budget-conscious collectors out there. I am probably in the same boat on the '51 Bowman set (Mays and Mantle), but I really love the set's look. I will concentrate on the 50s sets that I can finish first (which is pretty much everything except for '51B and '52T), but after I have managed to complete all of those others, I might circle back and do what I can on '51B and '52T. I happen to like them both.

Finally processing a group of cards I got nearly a month ago from a Net member (1 or 2 lots maybe....). Now at 444/523 without high numbers.

LCS has a massive lot of high numbers. I've only ever been interested in the All Star cards. I might cherry pick the better ones (the ones actually listed in Beckett) if I can work out some kind of deal.

Also picked up my 4th Mantle of the set, Game 2 WS card. 2 more to go (406 monster 565 ft HR & 578 AS)

Nice looking lot of 61's. I've been picking away at the 61 set myself. The area shows have been scarce this year so it's been slow going.
Good luck with your collecting.

I've recently started picking through most of the main stream 50's sets and picked up a really nice 56 Clemente so I thought i'd write a bit of an update because it's been 2 months since my last post.

Of the set's that i'm currently seriously collecting i'm at

50 Bowman 174/252
54 Topps 21/250
55 Topps 144/206
56 Topps 74/340
57 Topps 107/407

The 56 Topps set is the first set that I've started working on where I've been picking up stars first(got the Clemente, Mays, Aaron) instead of getting commons lots and then filling in the stars. I've found it's just as satisfying and a bit less stressful knowing that I've got the big purchases out of the way already and don't have to worry about them. I've attached the Clemente because I think you guys will enjoy it.

Not necessarily 'progress' in the truest sense of the word, but I did finally locate the 1960 Topps Baseball set my dad and I put together probably 30 years ago. I knew it was at his house somewhere, but had not seen it in years.

Going through a bedroom closet, low and behold, there it was - still in the three ring binder and every card in the sheets. No graded cards, none pulled out and put into hard cases. Everyone was home.

Like the Prodigal Son.

I received 8 cards in the mail today from an Ebay purchase which puts me at needing just 15 more cards to complete my 1956 Topps baseball set. They are all commons with the exception of Cerv and Don Larsen who sell above common prices but I am reasonably confident this set will be wrapped up by December.

I am curious about building this set as I was thinking about doing this one or the '63 Fleer set after I am done with the '56. Was this a pain to put together? I would be looking for non-graded, mid grade type cards and I know the "Ted Signs" card will kill my wallet but other than that, did you find this set hard to assemble and very costly or maybe not so much?

Sorry for all the questions but I am ready for a smaller set right now. lol

It is a beautiful set. Compared to other super star cards from the era they are beyond cheap and very easy to find.

If you buy the un-graded cards in bigger lots you can save a ton of cash. I have easily 30-35 SGC NrMint and better cards I would sell for $15 each if you take the entire lot. Thats cheap enough you could crack them out.

I am lacking about 80 cards on my latest project, a lower grade '52 Bowman. Really enjoying that set, and I am in no hurry to finish. I don't think that's ever happened to me before.

Got the last card to my 1959 Fleer Ted Williams set in the mail today.

Fellow member Sean(JoeDfan) noticed my post saying I only needed one card to finish the set. He was kind enough to send me the last card I needed for FREE. Thanks Sean.

I cracked it out as my set is ungraded.

Congrats! One of my fave sets. Definitely not the last card most collectors had on their want list.

Congrats Ben!

I finally got to get to a show and was able to pick up several cards for my 61 Topps Baseball set. I'm down to around 190 to go. Unfortunately I need almost all of the high numbers, so it's going to be a little slower going.

On Saturday I hit up the first card show we've had in Houston since early in the year. Only went to one table but came away with 130 or so commons (and a few minor stars) for my 1967 build. Puts me at 485 of 609, 79.6%.

I picked up the last 2 cards I needed to finish my 1961 Wrigley Exhibit Postcard back set. I had to buy a complete set to do it, though, so the rest of the set is posted for sale in the 1960-1979 Baseball B/S/T forum. If you are interested, take a look at the listing and email me with what you need.

With this 1971 Topps Greatest Moments Tim McCarver card, I am now just a tad bit past the '1/5 of the way' point of completion (13/55). It's a long and winding road for sure, but I'm happy to add him...

Grade aside, it's actually in really nice shape. The top left corner has a ding (that is much more evident when looking closely at the back) which surely lowered it to a 5.

My son and I made it to a show this past weekend. I found a nice Eddie Matthews and some high numbers for my 61 Topps set. Getting closer!

After a fairly large purchase yesterday, I am now only 11 cards away from completing '52 Bowman. Strangely, I am not in a hurry. Loving these cards!

Working on 52 and 54 Topps sets. Got the last big card for the 54s yesterday and found some nicely centered 52 high numbers. So, now I’m at:

52T: 311/406
54T: 176/250
