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 made some really good progress, but 1952 Topps high numbers are still are hovering over me.  For Bowman I have barely started 49 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, Post, etc.
