Back in 1987, I could only dream of owning the entire collection of Topps/Bowman baseball cards. Today, this dream has nearly become a reality as I complete one vintage set after another. My strategy has been to build sets efficiently by focusing on the lowest grades possible. My goal has simply been to just own the original cards. This blog shares my journey of collecting, organizing, and enjoying my collection of Topps/Bowman baseball cards.
I recently performed another purge of my reprint extras for 53B. After receiving the originals, I disposed of my reprint extras in the most traditional fashion. Here is a select showing. First up is Preacher Roe.
Here we have Dutch Leonard and a Yankee.
