Rob's Topps Run - an impossible journey?
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 made some really good progress, but 1952 Topps is still are hovering over me. For Topps, outside of 52 Topps I just have to complete 1963. For Bowman I have barely started 48, 49, and 50 so I still need quite a few of those. I'm always upgrading and looking for sharp corners to cards that I already have. That's pretty much my main focus now with Topps cards. I recently expanded to less mainstream sets like Leaf, Hires, Red Heart, etc.
