Mission Accomplished — 1965 Topps Set Is 100% Complete!

Over the weekend, I sold some of my extra cards and with that money made a couple of purchases. For a while now, I have been stuck at being two cards away from completing my EX or better conditioned 1965 Topps set. The only two cards I lacked were Steve Carlton’s rookie card and Hank Aaron. Well, now after several years in the making, I have FINALLY completed my 1965 Topps set with the addition of these two cards:

So am I through collecting? Only the 1965 Topps set. I now have the following sets complete: 1957, 1959, 1965, 1968 through 2012. I would like to knock out the 1966 and 1967 sets next so I can say I have 1965 to present complete. I need 56 cards from 1966 Topps (mostly expensive high numbers) and I am only 13 cards away from the 1967 Topps set. Because I am a lot closer with completing the 1967 set than 1966, the 1967 set will be my new area of focus. Unfortunately, I need Tom Seaver’s rookie card and although he was my favorite player growing up, I do not own one of these. Yet. 🙂

I have also been pursuing older Topps cards from 1952 through 1954. I do not have a want list posted yet over at www.mytoppscards.com but once I get a respectable amount of these cards, I will. For these years I am only collecting PSA graded cards that grade at least a three. My 1954 set is coming along quite nicely thanks to a bunch of great deals from this seller:
