After posting about my intentions of working on a run of 70s Topps flagship a few weeks ago, I got a few friendly folks getting in touch with me about helping out.
I recently completed a trade with generous reader Gmixo Greg, who helped make strides in my efforts with mid/late 70s Topps.
1975 Topps needs! Reggie sighting!
1976 Topps needs! What a great smile on that Griffey!
Many 1977 Topps needs!
Nice starter lot of 1979 Topps! Probably about time for me to sort out what I've got and make a wantlist soon.
Some bonus hockey PC guys, too! Gretzky and Messier.
Big thanks for the trade, Greg! Much appreciated!

Here's a quick PWE trade, just my second-ever trade done thru TCDB.. but funny enough, I didn't give up any cards on my For Trade/Sale list there, as user BucCollector was interested in a few of the surplus customs I posted about a little while back. I was happy to swap them for a few '77 needs highlighted by a pair of HOFers. (Looks like I've got an extra Niekro for the PC, as I got that card from Greg too.)
Last for today is my second Twitter trade with Heavy J. I found some set needs for him in exchange for a lot of '78s.
Solid bunch of cards here!
Contest win! I also happened to win a little Twitter giveaway he ran around the same time, and the prize was several off-condition vintage star cards. Between PCs and setbuilds in the works, I'll be able to put the vast majority of these to good use.
Some nice non-baseball cards too! That's my first Wonder Bread card. Heck, my first 90210 card, too.
But the trade really got legit when he told me he had a card on my "Desperate Double Dozen - Wishful Thinking" wantlist that was available...
Warren Spahn! To seal the deal, he commissioned me to whip up a custom to go with one of his display pieces.
Great to check off another HOFer from my '57 Topps needs. A minor crease, but overall in very nice shape.
Big thanks, Jason! Great stuff.
And thanks again to Greg and David.
Played hooky today and got in a nice little hike with the pooch on a cold but sunny autumn day.
