COMPLETED!!! - 1971 Topps Baseball PSA 7/8 - September 18th 2023
A little over a year ago I began the quest to complete this massive 752 card set.
With the addition of last years HOF inductee Tony Oliva the set is finally finished.
I would like to everyone who took the time to contact me. A few long time members
ghosted me after their initial contact which is fine. I look at it as a learning experience.
Even though we weren't able to work out a deal I would like to personally thank PNWcollector,
augustaman, JRR300, and Hallco for their interest in helping me.
And I especially want to thank Floyd Soeder ( fscards1 ), Brian Leader ( backbidder ), and
Dave Schmidt ( PaulMaul ). These 3 sellers are responsible for me being able to complete
over half of this huge set. I am forever grateful.
