My Completed Sets

by Billy Kingsley - 219 cards (Last updated on Aug. 22, 2017)


1. 1990 Classic Monster Trucks #35 Andy Brass


This is one of my favorite sets...it was the first set I ever did a box of, and it was the first set I ever completed, both when they were new in 1990. I actually knew Andy Brass in real life- to an extent - (he remembered me from year to year at the local races) so this is the card I chose to use for the set.

2. 1990 Impel Marvel Universe #18 Thor


This was likely my second completed set. It's funny, I'm not a Marvel comics fan, but I have quite a few of their cards- and I loved the Avengers, Thor and Captain America movies, plus most of the X-Men movies and the Fantastic Four movies. I don't know how this one was completed, my brother got them for me and put them in pages for me when I was pretty darn young.

3. 1991 Impel G.I. Joe #136 Tracker


I was a big fan of GI Joe for a large part of my life (I still read the comics and maintain friendships with several people from the hobby) and this set came out right in the peak of my time with Joe. I chose Tracker because of my personal history with the figure- it was the only 1991 figure we were not able to find, and it eluded us for years. Eventually my brother mail ordered a copy of the figure for my birthday in the mid-late 90s.

4. 1991 Pro Set Bill & Ted #46 Bill&TedSpeak: Totally


I enjoyed both of these movies although the first one moreso. Another set that my brother got for me when it was new, or close to it.

5. 1992 SkyBox Doomsday - The Death of Superman #89 Death of A hero!


Unlike my comment about Marvel comics above, I grew up reading DC Comics and only stopped in 2011. My brother got me this set when it was new.

6. 1992 Maxx Red #2 Rusty Wallace


My first completed NASCAR set! I discovered NASCAR at Christmas 1992, and I bought this set as a factory set sometime in the spring or summer of 1993 from our then-current comic dealer.

7. 1996 SPx #50 Rasheed Wallace


My first completed basketball set. The set is mis-labeled as a 1996 only release but it's really a 1995-96 release- it was the last release of the 1995-96 season, coming out during the playoffs. I remember this well; I discovered the NBA on the final day of the 1995-96 regular season, when my mom brought me a random pack of cards (see later in this album). My parents gave me this set for my birthday in 1996.

8. 1996 Upper Deck Slam Dunk Series #13 Rodney Rogers


This was the first set I completed from packs, IE not from a box, factory set or a set collated by someone else and sold as a unit. Granted, it's only a 40 card set, but for a 12 year old it was an accomplishment!

9. 1996-97 Collector's Choice #293 Dontae' Jones


This is just a random card, as the previous was. I had done some packs of both series but eventually got the factory set.

10. 1996-97 Topps Stars #93 John Stockton


1996-97 Topps Stars was a great set, (again, Beckett gets it wrong, big surprise there!) highlighting the 50 Greatest Players the NBA selected for it's 50th Anniversary, celebrated all throughout 1996-97. As someone who has always been a fan of history, learning about the history of my new hobby was a very nice time for me. I bought a set collated by my local card shop.

As a straight up baseball guy (who briefly dabbled in football and basketball-don't know where those went), it's fascinating to me what people collect. Nice list. V3

Set #1 is my favorite. I have 25 of those cards and hopefully will get the whole set one day. Great era of Monster Truck racing.

Great list.

The trade with Billy for his last card to complete his 158th set was my first trade on the DB. Nice list Billy.

I had no idea that a Bill & Ted card set existed. Very cool!

The Marvel Universe cards...I wasn't ever into comics, but most of the boys in my class were collecting these cards, so I did as well. Everybody was trading and working on sets...and chasing those holograms!

Man, Billy! I get excited about basketball everytime I read a list of yours. I didn't see 90-91 Skybox or Hoops as completed. Are they, but just not logged in?

Dave, most excellent! 

Kin, still chasing those holograms myself!

Commish, I have not completed Skybox yet, but I did complete Hoops, I forgot to list it on here though!
