Default December pickups

I wasn't really ever planning on going after this set, but I came across a bargain that was too good to pass on. Now that I have this one out of the way, I figure the rest will be a little more easily attainable.

Very nice card!

I think I'd do the same with regards to that card and set. Always liked it but never pursued it, mainly due to that card.

Good luck with your set.

My favorite set of all time! What a sharp copy of #68 that is. I landed a beater this year to complete my set and was thrilled. Good luck with your journey!

Thanks guys, the set is growing on me quite a bit. While there are some cards that I could do without (hunting, fishing, the weird shift card) there are some of the best poses of the Post War era in the set. Doesn't get much better than #63 "Ted's All Star Record".

Default '52

I have completed the '52 set with all 407 cards and most major variations. The question is - how close can I get to a Master Set...

Nice!

From what I have read/learned, it would be quite the undertaking, but considering how many you have now, (most major variations) maybe it's not as big as I think?

Good luck with your quest!

Hey thanks Dale.

Not to diverge from the current thread topic - but the gray backs will be the issue. I have 11 of the key mid-series 60. I've always always wondered why some are so rare if they were printed in near equal numbers.....
