Progressing On My 1964 Topps Set!

I received an interesting email from a guy about two weeks ago. He said he was cleaning his house a couple of months ago and came upon an old shoebox containing hundreds of baseball cards from 1962 through 1964. He took the time to compare what he had to my want lists (listed at www.mytoppscards.com) and told me he had 21 cards from 1962, 1 card from 1963, and 14 from 1964 that I needed. He said the 1964’s were in really good shape while the 1962’s were not as good. He also told me he is no longer interested in baseball cards but at the same time, he doesn’t want to just give them away. He understands that they do have value. I didn’t get my hopes right away. Most of the time when I hear of someone finding old cards in a shoebox, they are not in the greatest shape since they have usually been played with as a kid. After going back and forth with emails, he asked me for my address. He sent me the following six 1964 Topps cards to see if they met my expectations:

To my surprise, five of the six cards met my expectations and I went ahead and bought them at prices that were below average EBay prices. The Lou Brock had scratches in the upper right hand corner of the card so I returned that one. Now I only need 20 more 1964 Topps cards to complete my set! I went from having 95.7% of the set complete to now having 96.5% of the set complete. The good news is ghat the guy has more 1964's. I can't wait to see them. 🙂

Here is what all I need from 1955 to present:

With the conditions and prices meeting my expectations, he will be sending more to help me with my quest. And when he does, you can be sure that I will update you.

Thank you for following my blog! 🙂
