2013 Collecting Goal Accomplished!!! My Nolan Ryan 1999 Topps Commemorative Set Is Done!!!
Friends, I have done it!!
I have finished one of my many 2013 collecting goals. The 1999 Topps Nolan Ryan Commemorative set that I have been building for the better part of the year is finally complete.
The set features 27 cards in total – with the subject being one of each of Ryan’s base cards from his rookie card of 1968 to his final card from 1994.
It took me a bit longer to complete this set, but I think that I did so in a pretty economical manner. Sure, there may have been a few gaps in time when I could not find a ‘deal’ worth making to add a card to my set, but I did not budge. And eventually, I scored.
And now, the set is complete. And it looks great.

I am loving it!!!
And once I completed this set and really looked at the cards as a complete set, I immediately thought of how nicely this set captures Nolan Ryan’s career, and how Topps should produce one of these sets every season for a recently retired star. I could just imagine this same style featuring cards of Chipper Jones and Mariano Rivera – now that would be awesome!!!
