About 3 week ago I started to collect a 71 Topps baseball set from scratch. It's going to be for fun which means that the majority of the cards will be in vg/ex to excellent condition; the only caveats will be no creases or surface wear and unslabbed. Corners? Well, nothing rounded but if there's white present that's fine with me.

So far I've gotten 73 of the high numbers, including the Allen and Baker/Baylor. Star-wise, I 've picked up the Fingers, Carew, Morgan, Ted Williams, Aaron, Yaz, Palmer, and Mays. Next will be the Clemente in vg/ex and whichever stars I can get in the $5-20 range until the funds run out once again.

Lots of great set updates...405/407 Ethan on 52's is unreal...


Just WAY over spent on #473 Orioles team card to complete 1964 Topps set...stoked to have that one DONE.

Down to needing 212 cards to complete the 1960's Topps...getting close.

Well, my 1954 Red Heart set is complete and in a most unexpected way.

Today in my mail was this card with a note that it was a gift! This was from a board member here that I have never met!

There are ALOT of great, kind and generous people out there. Too often we let loud voices tell us otherwise.
What a blessing!

Just got back into cards a few months back, started on the 1910 T218's and am currently up to 80/153. Have both Jack Johnson cards taken care of, as rough as they are, so it's all downhill from here. Just need to find the time to dedicate to searching for the remaining ones.

For the second time in my collecting career...I have FINALLY COMPLETED the 1967 Topps set!! Stoked...and super proud of where I am at. Only need a couple of upgrades as I really focused on tight cards this go around. I do have a couple of highs that are not up to standard...but I do love to upgrade a finished set. Here is my last card...last go around it was #487 Tom Reynolds...this time it was #587 Rookies...a pretty tough card to get clean so I bought a graded version I plan on freeing...





1967 Topps...DONE! Hell yeah...(1 card left for 1962!!! Fricken Bob Uecker RC...)

Out the bastard! J/K That's great. A fellow collector heard I was starting on a Carl Hubbell collection and sent me a 1932 card out of the blue. As you say, lots of nice people out there.

I have sort of stumbled into working on a raw 1960 Fleer ATG set. I didn't mean to, I just found a trove of them in stellar condition at the 2019 National for a buck each, then picked up an auction lot with Gehrig, Cobb and Wagner in great shape, then found more and just got into it. My latest one of note is a Williams that looks way better than the PSA 5 grade (I have a PSA 8 that I submitted a few years ago too; probably gonna sell that one) and will be liberated from the plastic tomb when I introduce it to Mr. Dremel.

Thanks to my comments on this thread (THANKS BOB!!!!!) I have now completed my 1962 Topps set, that's a first ever for me. Really enjoyed putting this set together, finding out all the SP cards and nuances...and enjoyed the Roger Maris theme throughout...truly deserved after the historic 1961 season. Last card came via net54 as mentioned, and I do want to thank bobsbbcards once again for a STELLAR card, perfect to finish on. Those Rookie Parades are no easy task!!!

Congrats to everyone.

I'm just home from a card show and I finished my favorite set of all time...the 53' topps set.

The last card was this Mays and after prices shot up I didn't think I would ever get it.

A longtime dealer friend hooked me up and even took a loss for me to be able to afford this one. Very thankful.

Small but difficult set to complete. Picked up three cards recently after going 1+ years without seeing an addition.

Thatís awesome, Congrats!
The high numbers in this set is a bit daunting. Iím not being as selective as you, but am 538/613 = 88% with mostly high numbers to go. Just got my Carew at a 3.5 grade but nice eye appeal.

I switched to 1959 Topps for a breather since I love that set aesthetics and am 274/572 = 48% right now.

Iím working on 1969, down to 15 left - Bench, Seaver, Clemente, Mays and some commons. Hoping to have it done shortly then will tackle 71 or 73 as I have about half of each.

Getting really really close on 73, also nearing the home stretch on 71s. Progress is in my signature.

An update, as of this morning I am down to 29 cards to complete my 71 Topps Baseball set. I still need the Munson, Carlton, Bench, Seaver, Killebrew, and B. Robinson as the major stars to mention a few needs. Mainly, I wanted to mention two members of Net54 who have helped me tremendously in putting this set together: Brian Noll and Rich McQuillan, who were responsible for about 85% of the cards that I now have. They were fantastic in their communications, fairness, and the quality of the cards that I received from them. Tim Connoy is sending me a few singles and I had a great conversation with Tod Sloan, who I hope to pick up some cards from for upgrades as well as singles for my next project- a 1971 Topps Football set! The assistance, information, visuals of other collector's items, and comradery all make Net54 a great place to be a participant. Thank you to all!

My son and I went to a card show this weekend and I was able to put a sizable dent in the cards needed to complete my 1961 Topps baseball set. I'm down to needing just 17 more cards to complete the set. Only 10 HN's. Hopefully I'll have this set done this summer, depending on shows available.

Default Cool thread

I have not counted my cards yet, but I am easily over halfway done with 1956 but I do not have any of the 3 toughest cards, the mantle, clemente, and koufax. My 57 set is just getting off the ground because I had the chance to buy a mint 57 Berra for a good price. I have a 1964 set that is going well and is high grade, but I do not have the mantle. My 1968 set is probably my best because I have really nice versions of the 3 most expensive cards, Ryan, Bench, and Mantle, but I am only halfway done on completing it. My 1971 set is 70% complete and I have all the toughest cards except I havent found an Aaron I am happy with. My 1972 is over 80% and I have all the difficult cards in relatively very high grades. Having fun reading the other answers! I have 3 beautiful Mickey Mantle cards but only 1 falls in a set I collect. My 1958 and 1961 Mantles are probably future trade bait for tough cards I need.

Iím also starting signed Bowman Red Sox sets from the early 1950s. Iíve done some reading about those teams lately thatís given me a soft spot for them, and gotten good deals on some cards with vintage signatures.
I'm up to 260 right now on the Topps. A member here sold me Roy Campanella, which I never thought I'd get with today's prices. I was the underbidder on a couple of auctions in last fall's REA and on eBay a couple months ago that could have gotten me up to 268, but they'll come up again. I posted my progress here: https://net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=300164 . For the Bowmans, I've made some progress, but I've decided to mothball the 1950 and 1952 sets for now and focus on 1951. I picked up the Vern Stephens in February, so the only tough card I still need is Steve O'Neill.

52 Topps: 340/407 and 33 red backs/ 1 black back away from low number master set. Buying a few mid grade highs/month. Hoping to buy a Mantle later in the year

54 Topps: 250/250 as of last month, but now in search of a better #250

Default Finished!

I just bought the last card for my 1965 set!

I figured I would need something to do over the winter since COVID restrictions meant we weren't going anywhere. Before COVID I didn't have any sets. I now have 1965 and 1970-2020 Topps Baseball, 1970 and 1980-87 Topps Football, 1989 Score Football, and 1988 Fleer Basketball (including stickers).

1965, 1970-1974 were put together the rest were purchased as complete sets. Most sets were from N54 board members.

I may start another set but plan on relaxing until the winter.

N54 was a tremendous help! Thanks, everyone!

After 15 plus years I have completed my 51' Bowman set with picking up the last card I needed the Ford rookie and still one of my all time favorite sets.
