1967 Topps — And Then There Were 12!!

I got a great surprise in the mail today. You see, for years now, I have a fellow collector who has been following my progress on my vintage sets at www.mytoppscards.com. Every week or two, he sends me a card from my want lists. Most of the time he doesn't even tell me in advance who it is. He'll just send me a message that says I have a dinner guest coming. It's his way of saying I should expect to add a card to my collection. He understands my condition requirements of EX or better. In return, I help him with his sets. He collects mainly Topps, Bowman, and Topps Heritage. Since I buy cases of Topps Heritage, I usually end up trading him a master set for all of the cards he ends up getting for me.
So, what was the surprise I got today? Here it is:

The picture was taken with my phone - the card looks a lot better in person. It definitely meets my condition standards. So, I now only need 12 cards to complete my 1967 Topps set! Unfortunately, one of those is a high number shortprint, Brooks Robinson. Another one of those is a high dollar rookie, Tom Seaver. So what does that mean? It means it is going to be awhile before I get this set completed! Here is the list of what I need now:
