My 1967 Topps set was beginning to look a little weak surrounded by my '66 and '69 sets, some I grabbed a Beckett Monthly and went down the list to see what I could find online at under 15% BV. Leaders cards are always nice, with stars like F.Robinson, H.Killebrew, and B.Powell featured on the two below. I had to look twice when ordering to make sure they weren't the same. As one of the original closers, with a career spanning well into his '40s, the Wilhelm card appeared to be a good catch.
These cards actually look pretty sharp for the price I paid. High number '67s are worst I've dealt with to date, although I haven't yet taken a serious stab at pursuing them. After '67T high numbers, it's the '72s that seem to be the toughest to obtain. I do have many high numbers from the '66 and '62 sets, which have given me nowhere nearly as much trouble as I anticipate when searching for high '67s. Getting a card in the 400's for under 20% BV was certainly a catch.
I get cards in the mail almost daily, so the topic of tomorrow's post is really up for grabs.
