The Official 30-YOC ‘1975 Topps Cincinnati Reds Checklist’
It’s official now!!! After asking for and receiving some help last week, I have completed my checklist for the 1975 Topps Reds team set I will be collecting.
My original goal was to get the 25-card team set featuring just the base cards, but it has now evolved into securing each and every card featuring the Cincinnati Reds logo. 25 became 34 very quickly as I have added multi-player rookie cards, league leader cards, and other parts of the ’75 Topps set featuring a Reds player.
Here is a look at the checklist:
|1975 Topps Cincinnati Reds Team Set|
|“The Big Red Machine”|
|Card #||Player||Own it?||Notes|
|622||Armbrister, Ed||Multi-Player rookie|
|208||Bench, Johnny||1970 MVP|
|210||Bench, Johnny||1972 MVP|
|308||Bench, Johnny||1974 RBI Leaders|
|615||Darcy, Pat||Multi-Player rookie|
|621||Eastwick, Rawly||Multi-Player rookie|
|199||Robinson, Frank||1961 MVP|
|204||Robinson, Frank||1966 MVP|
|211||Rose, Pete||1973 MVP|
A special thanks goes out to every one of the readers that helped guide me to this final list of cards to go after!!!
I am so eager to get going on this one – I can hardly wait!!! And no mini’s for me. I have very little love for them and I had to draw the line somewhere!!
Stay tuned as I will present each and every I card I pick up for this set as I secure them. If all goes well, this should be a challenging but gratifying quest!!!
