And Then There Was One
One of my collecting focuses has been on acquiring as many Giants base cards as possible. I like all Giants including parallels, relics, autos, inserts and oddballs but the regular old base cards are close to my heart. One of my goals this year was to finish off the Giants run of base cards put out by Topps throughout the 1960s. With the purchase of this Chuck Hiller rookie from 1961 Topps I am now one card away from completing this goal. The card I have left is the 1961 Topps All-Star of Willie Mays. This card won't come cheap but I am patient and will try to strike with a reasonably conditioned card at the right price.
Another lofty goal was to complete the 1973 Topps set.
Is anyone out there inching towards a goal or just have one complete? For me there is little more satisfying than marking a goal off the list and I hope I can put both of these to rest in the not too distant future.
