The Quest for the 1960 Topps Set, Part XXVII
August 5th, 2011 by slangon

This is the last batch of non-Top 5 cards from my big June Haul. I promise. Aside from all the Mets goodies I got, I was also able to cross off a bunch of cards from my 1960 Topps checklist. Aside from Don and Roberto, I mean. Here they is. #16 Pete Runnells With the […]

I guess this post could technically be called “Payment” from Project ’62: Part 5 since all these cards came from Chris, but I like to keep my 1960 cards with my 1960 posts. I’m stubborn like that. Regardless of the title of this here post, I’m now half a dozen steps closer to my goal […]

I’m not sure if this is true or not, but I’m under the impression that most people, when they’re trying to complete a set, will initially figure out how many 9 pocket pages it will take to house that set, throw that many pages in a binder, and fill in the pages with the cards […]

June 23rd, 2011 by slangon

I have a pile of manilla envelopes piling up on my desk of cards that I’ve been meaning to write about. Some have come via trades, some have come from eBay, some have come from Sportlots. For one reason or another, there’s been more piling up than writing going on around here. Hopefully, that’ll change. […]

As a set collector, especially a collector of a vintage set, the bane of my existence is the dreaded high series card. Although I have become quite the vintage-o-phile over the last year or 2 of my collecting career and I understand perfectly well that vintage is not cheap, I can never quite get the […]

I don’t think I’ve actually bought any cards from the 1960 set in a spell excepting for a Don Gross card that I thought I needed but didn’t. I do however still have a stack of cards, including a bunch from the 1960 set, that have been sitting on my desk collecting dust and waiting […]

February 23rd, 2011 by slangon

I have a half-assed system going on the desk in my office where I do most of my blog and card related activities. I have a bookshelf that houses all my boxes and binders of cards in the corner of the room, and there are usually 2 piles of cards on the desk by my […]

Here’s four more cards for the 1960 set that I can’t quite recall where I got. My guess is Sportlots, but who knows for sure. #84 Hal Smith This has got to be one of the cooler photos in this entire set, at least as far as the larger color photos go. Most of the […]

January 5th, 2011 by slangon

I’m not sure how other people run their blogs and collections, but I’ve sort of settled into a bit of a system. I have a pile on my desk of recently acquired cards that are awaiting to be scanned, if they’re post worthy, and logged into my master Excel sheet and filed away into the […]

November 30th, 2010 by slangon

I’m not sure how this happened, but I have a giant stack of manilla envelopes sitting on my desk, all containing cards that I’ve been meaning to post about before I file them away into their respective spots in my collection. I guess it’s sort of good that I have that backlog of cardboard, seeing […]
