Card #300 In My 1975 Topps Set Build Is Reason To Celebrate!!!

Card #300 In My 1975 Topps Set Build Is Reason To Celebrate!!!

Sure, it may not be a landmark percentage of the set, but 300 is a very nice, round number and one that I am excited about reaching.

Card #300 was reached yesterday in my build, and not only was it the 300th card that I have picked up for my 1975 Topps set build, but it was also card #300 from the set – literally, it was the Reggie Jackson card!

And yes, I kind of held onto that one for a few weeks just so I could squeeze it in this way and make it a tad more memorable.

Cheers to #300.

300

I am ready for the next milestone to come my way.
