Keep plugging away. I'm trying to collect the entire 1971 set, too. It's a toughy. Clemente? Munson? Aaron? Mays? I don't know when I'll have the cash for those guys.

I'm with you on that...but it will probably be a few years before I get to the end of this so I hope by then the big bucks are rolling in!

How far along is your set?

I have about 40-45 percent of the set. Like I said, the stars are muchos dineros, and the high numbers aren't cheap either. Not to mention super-condition-sensitive. I expect to be working on it for years, too.

Are you worried about condition? I've got a good number of 1971 commons. Let me know.

Matt F. said...

I'm not too concerned with the condition actually...anything short of chunks missing from the card would be great...What would you like in return? Are you building any sets?

I sent you an email about the 71 topps cards.
