Speaking of 1975s, just completed my 75 O Pee Chee set over the weekend.....that completion gives me the 1975 trifecta: I have completed the regular 75 Topps (all PSA graded), the 75 mini set, and now the 75 OPC set. The mini set is mostly raw and the OPC set is all raw.

How was the opc set? Cards easier to find/hard? 75 was a birth year set for me, so did 2 each reg and mini

If that is your birth year, by all means you need to build this set. I like to build my sets using lots/near sets, so there are not typically many of these out there with the 75s OPCs. However, there appear to be around 6000+ singles alone on ebay, so in that regard, not too tough to find.

The most challenging part of this set, as with most all OPC sets, is to find centered cards. I still have 60-70 cards from this set that I will look to replace due to centering concerns.

I love the Canadian cousins of Topps, one day they should be recognized for being so short printed, I have 78-87 opc sets….so centering sucks but I think they’re so cool…….75 would be fun to do…..so maybe 🤔

Just finished my 1961 Post Cereal set w/ all 19 variations (welcome home, Jim Lemon from Minneapolis).

Note: I didn't do "hand cut" and "perforated." I'm not cray cray.

While I don't have an exact count at the moment, I am well over halfway complete on my '50 Bowman set in about VG overall, my Jackie is lower grade than that. Last weekend I picked up the second year Campanella and the Newcombe rookie. Those should arrive tomorrow. Just yesterday I found a decent deal on some low numbers and picked up 11 at once. That will help things along. I'm pursuing copyright/no copyright variations as I build this set.

I’m sure this may have been covered in a separate thread, but what are the principals to follow when starting out building a set.

Buy the best condition cards you can one/two at a time?

Buy partial sets in varying condition?

I’m working on both the 1960 and 1972 topps set so any specific advice related to these collections would be much appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving

Just finished my 77 Topps set in NMMT. Now onto 76 to finish my run of 74-present day.

Anyone have a NMMT 1976 starter set?
