Taking Cards From Peter To Share Them With Paul…
After thinking about the best way to approach the start of my 1975 Topps Set Build, I settled in on pulling cards from existing player collections I have worked on that really showed no signs of being completed.
So, I started digging. And I only had 1 rule to follow – DO NOT PULL CARDS FROM COMPLETED COLLECTIONS.
And then I got to work. And I did rather well.
While I did not rescue cards of Fergie Jenkins, Billy Williams, Joe Morgan, Ron Santo, or Jim Palmer from my player collections, I did secure a very nice stack of cards to get my set build off and rolling.
In total, I pulled 11 cards. And now I am 1.6% done with the Set!!
Here are the cards that I will begin my journey with:
Card #2 – Lou Brock, 1974 Highlights
Card #50 – Brooks Robinson
Card #150 – Bob Gibson
Card #165 – Steve Carlton
Card #193, 1955 Most Valuable Players
Card #199, 1961 Most Valuable Players
Card #202, 1964 Most Valuable Players
Card #450 – Willie McCovey
Card #540 – Lou Brock
Card #600 – Rod Carew
Card # 640 – Harmon Killebrew
Not a bad start, huh? The cards look great and they are all in pretty sharp condition.
And now with this final step complete, I am ready to shop.
