1. 1952 Topps #59 Robin Roberts


Started in April of 1981 (sid/26).
Set completed in Sept 2007
Married Oct 2007

Started with a trade for some cards. Mostly A's and Phillies then slowly expanded it over the years.
Card #311 is in poor/good condition. Still cost me $250. Thanks to over time at work. For a period I was buying a card or 2 per paycheck.
Getting married soon, worked very hard to finish off the set.

I did a card trade and bought the commons in volume.

I love lists like these. I didn't include inserts in mine, but I have not completed many inserts.

Nice list, except I'm clearly dense. These are completed sets of what, exactly? Not, I presume, the entire 1952 Topps set. So what is it you d completed. I'm missing something. Many things, probably.

Yes The 1952 set is completed.  Not the greatest looking cards but I have one of each. This set was started in like Sept 1981

The shop I bought from or national dealers offered discounts. of like 25 to 30 percent in the amount I bought in.

   I was single  owned a house, No mortage,  and a great job in refining oil.

That's awesome. You should get all those sets listed in your collection here. Sounds like your full collection is very impressive.
