Back Home...

G'day you lucky folks who get to read my ramblings!

Since returning from Hawaii a couple of weeks ago, I have been lucky enough to purchase complete 1974, 1975 and 1976 Topps sets on the bay, and thus I will be awaiting their arrival before I start my 'Player Card Collection' series, particularly because I will soon have every Dave Winfield, Dave Parker, George Brett, Robin Yount & Dennis Eckersley base card to place in order for some (hopefully) cool photos!

These 3 sets will basically conclude my 'Topps Set Hoarding' run, since the '73 set is a bit too pricey, for my liking. Thanks Mike Schmidt, and your high-numbered short-printed multi-playered RC!

I would have loved to complete these sets in the good old-fashioned way, but as most would understand, it's an insanely difficult task, given my location. Best to go for the whole lot in one giant spree! As it stands right now, I have 150 '76 cards & 40 '75 cards, which will no doubt become redundant once the sets arrive. I will see if I can list them individually for those who may need some of them.

I also have a complete 1974 Dodgers Team Set, and if anyone out there truly needs it, let me know. They're all in Nr-Mt-Mint condition, but that may change, based on the condition of the cards that arrive. Obviously, I'll be keeping the best ones! (Sorry!)

Hopefully, I will get a nice gift in the mail before Friday, and I will be able to share some pics of those legendary mid-70's sets with everyone.

Until then,

Thanks for reading!



  1. I've got all 3 sets (collected the traditional way :)). First 3 sets I ever saw! Great stuff!

  2. Looking forward to it, Nick! There's a whole bunch of awesome cards in those mid-70s Topps sets.

    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Greg, you're incredibly lucky to have lived through that period - and I am rather jealous of you!

    Nick, thanks mate - I'm really looking forward to posting some pics of something you will surely enjoy - complete player collections! I'm talking year-by-year Topps cards for guys like Winfield, Eck, Yount and Brett. I can't wait just to even hold those cards in one pile!
