1975 Topps Minis and I am still alive and kicking !
In spite of any rumors you may have heard, I did not die. I did not move to Africa to become a missionary and I did not trade all my baseball cards for a cigar box full of Pokemon cards !
I love to make trades. Sometimes I get a little too carried away in trading and end up taking on way too much ! As I look as some of your want lists, I noticed that most set collectors concentrate on Topps more than any other brand. I knew I could help some of you out if I could just find the specific cards.
I have spent most of the last 2-3 weeks picking Topps base cards out of all my "misc. to sell or trade" boxes, and sorting them out by year. So far I have about 15,000 Topps cards from 1963 to 2012 ( and I'm still not finished picking or sorting !). I don't have a lot from 1963-72, but there are a few.
I also have 15-20,000 cards sorted by other brands but not by years.
My next project is to get my own want lists in order so I can start trading again !!
I also sent out about 10 trade packages and I'm still working on 5-6 more.
I have been reading most of the blogs and commenting here and there and emailing a few of you. I hope to start posting on a more regular basis again. I have many trade posts to work on.
I did find these 1975 Topps minis at a local card show for 10 cents each ! Most are in very good shape. The seller also has a permanent, inside booth at a local flea market. I will have to check that out soon !
That's all for now, I promise to be back soon !
