Rob's Topps Run - an impossible journey?

About Me

I'm a collector making an attempt at a Topps run of base sets.  I collect as a hobby, not a business.  While I do sell cards from time to time, it's simply to fund my hobby.  I greatly enjoy the interactions that come from trading cards as I learn more and more about the hobby and the sport that I love every day.

While my main focus is on Topps, I do collect vintage Bowman as well.  The competition back and forth between the two companies in the early 1950's is a story that I find very intriguing.

I have a long ways to go on a lot of sets.  Currently I have completed only 17 pre-1980 sets (54, 56, 58, 64, 65, 66, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79). While I am very close on others, I'm quickly finding out that short print high numbers are a beast all of their own.
