No longer just technically complete with '60T

The final card needed to complete my 1960 Topps set arrived today, and so my third competed set from the '60s era has been achieved.  I didn't start out intending to complete 1960 before 1961-1967, but it just sort of happened that way.  I collect where the value is in my lifetime quest to own every Topps baseball card set.  That childhood dream was pondered upon in 1987 before inserts, parallels, variations, and so many other cards to collect every year.  These days, I'm actually trying to shrink my collection, but a core group of 1951-1991 Topps sets still has a solid place in my collection.  I previously completed the 1950 Bowman set, so finishing of 1960 Topps today surely presents an interesting coincidence.  I never imagined actually being so close to finishing off the 1960's decade, but 1961, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1966, and 1967 aren't too far behind in completion status.  Only my 1963 set is lagging behind with just under half of the set being complete.  So here's to Don Drysdale for being the last card to enter my now completed 1960 Topps set.
