almost forgot to mention that i completed my 1971 topps set

boog powell's card was the last that i needed to complete the iconic, black-bordered set.
i also decided to go the lazy route and bought a 1975 topps set.  that means that the 1972 topps set is the only one in my way from having a complete run from 1970 through 2010.  therefore, i am putting out an apb for cards on my 1972 topps want list.  you have 'em, i want 'em.  you will be rewarded!

  2. Late '90s sets complete? You might be one of 12 who can say that.

  4. I'm also working on 1972 and have a lot of doubles. I'll see what I can do to help.

    1. Would be appreciated. I have some dupes, too.

  6. Wow. That's quite the run. I'm working on a 1972 to 1986 run and I'm down to the 1973 set. But I'll be buying that one for sure.

  7. Congrats on a Set completion. I need to get off my butt and finish some of these now ancient sets.

  8. Wow. That's quite impressive. I've never really ventured into vintage so I can't help with '72, but good luck!

  9. Congrats! That Boog is still a top want-list suspect of mine.

  10. thanks guys. the run of sets is a bit misleading, because my main run of real-time, hand-collated sets was from 1978-1988. even though i was still buying packs from 1989-1994, i bought factory sets those years. i hand collated a set again in 1995, but was back to packs and factory sets from 1996-2006. i built the 2007 and 2009 sets myself, but bought factory sets in 2008 and 2010. the pre-1978 sets (other than the 1975 set) had been ongoing builds of varying durations for quite a while.
