1972 Topps Wantlist



Goal for 2011: get wantlists up for every Topps base set from 1951 to 2007ish. I might bother to do the same for 2008-2011 assuming Topps doesn't piss me off too badly this year. Who am I kidding, they'll piss me off for sure. It's the 60th anniversary, you know they're going to gimmick that poor abused base set to death.

Protip for all you kiddos who love vintage sets but are scared to death of high numbers. Take your favorite Pre-1973 sets and focus on completing one of the low numbered series. 132 cards is much easier to pull off than five hundred something and you won't end up paying 10 bucks for a common. While I will never ever complete this set I'll bet dollars to donuts I can complete at least one series this year.

Hold off on the trading offers for the time being please, I've got a Target bag full of unmailed bubble mailers I need to deal with before I start up any new swaps.

I like the idea of completing the older sets one series at a time. Some of those sets can be daunting, especially the ones that were in the neighborhood of 700 cards. Doing a set by series makes it much more manageable.

I just need a price for the #679 would be a great help.
