1960 Topps set build (through only trading)
About 9 years ago I started to build the 1960 Tops set. I had about 300 of the cards already from a large lot of vintage I found at a tag sale which included most of the star players. After paying $15 for about 25 more cards I decided that I would see if I can finish the set only through trading and not spending any more money on it. So far I counted that I am 78% of the way completing the set and I only spent $15. All the dealers in the Connecticut area know what I am trying to do and have been good with the trades. I usually buy other stuff from them and after I complete that transaction I throw in that I have more cards to trade for the set. Condition doesn't matter. The more beat up (loved) the better. I am trying to figure out what is going to happen when I get down to the last few stars and high numbers. Will people still want to trade? I will find out. This journey will probably take me another 9 years to finish but I am in no hurry. If anyone has beat up commons or minor stars that they want to trade let me know. I am almost done with the low numbers and am working on the mid numbers and high numbers now. I have lots of 1964 and 1967 commons to trade.
