1965 Topps Milestone Achievement: Over 500 different cards in the set.

I just broke over 500 (actually 502) cards in this set today with the acquisition of 3 leaders cards #4, #5, #9, C.Stengell #187, W.Stargell #477, and R.Schoendienst #556. 

Reaching each 100 cards in a vintage set always seems like a milestone achievement, but reaching the last 100 cards represents a major milestone before completion. 

With only 27, 22, and 1 card(s) to go in the 1966-1968 sets, respectively, one can only go down when the going gets tough. 

So, although the 1965 Topps set is not on my 2018 Collecting Goals list, it's rapidly commanding attention for inclusion in future lists. 

I've already completed the Embossed insert set for 1965. 

Hopefully, I can wrap one of these mid-to-late '60s sets up soon so that I can narrow down the focus.
