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 a long ways to go on a lot of sets. Currently I have completed only 15 pre-1980 sets (54, 58, 64, 65, 66, 69, 70, 71, 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.
