It has been a while since I have finished off a vintage Giants team set. I recently picked up this beauty - a 1951 Topps Monte Irvin card.
1951 is the first set Topps put out and the cards would allow you to play some sort of card game. I haven't really looked into it but Monte's card must have been a pretty good one with a double. The Giants team set only consisted of 6 cards and with the addition of Irvin I now have the complete set, check it out:
Completing vintage sets will be pretty rare for me moving forward. The only Giants I need for a complete Topps run are the 1953 & 1955 Willie Mays plus I need 15 card from the 1952 set including a Willie Mays RC, Monte Irvin and 12 of the rare and uber expensive high number series. I will probably shift any vintage focus towards the Bowman releases in the late 40s and early 50s. It sure feels nice to have this one in the books.
