How'd I do?
Aw, dang! Fell decidedly short of my goal! But still, at nearly 40%, it's a solid starting point for a vintage setbuild. Over a third of the way there!
I already have a few of the key cards, such as the Mantle (bought a fuzzy-cornered copy 2 or 3 years ago), and encased specimens of Maris and Whitey Ford (both part of the recently acquired lot), and Richie Allen (in my Dick Allen PC).
|Yes, my 65 Mantle is squeezable. Don't ask. Just squeeze.|
I won't be super picky about condition, though of course I'd prefer to upgrade any cards with writing on them, as well as cards with egregious creases, stains, way off-center, etc. Basically hoping to keep cards around a probable "3" grade or higher. (I'm not going for a graded set, though I don't plan to jailbreak cards that happen to be graded already.)
Do you have any 1965 Topps cards available to trade? Pretty please take a look at my 1965 wantlist. I'd love to work out a trade for any needs. If you're also working on the set, I have several dupes.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
Nice Goal and thanks for the Mention. That is a pretty good grab for an opening stab at your goal. I still need to get those big Yankee dudes. I've been slacking in the last few months I've only gotten one or two more from my posted total of 214 (216 with the variations). You are 20some cards above me right now.ReplyDelete
I just finished this set. I really enjoyed it. The high numbers are not too difficult to find. I will see if I have any doubles and let you know.ReplyDelete
My favorite set of the 60's... and unfortunately the one I own the least of. I'll check my box of vintage and see if I can help you out.ReplyDelete
