as you might know, i am working on updating my 1979 topps set. i wasn't too careful when i put the set together for the first time as i was only 8. anyway, i am wondering what the general feeling is towards this set. to me, it's not the greatest. i didn't get that same feeling that i did when i was opening packs of 1978 topps, but i still opened a ton of packs. as a young collector, i put a dodger team set in a binder and boxed up the complete sets. later, i started putting doubles of star cards in a binder, too. but the sets stayed in boxes.
today, i have a few sets in binders. 1978, of course. 1978 o-pee-chee as well. 1977 topps and o-pee-chee. 1970 topps. 1973 topps. 1976 topps. partially completed 1971 topps and 2003 upper deck vintage sets. plus, 2004 upper deck legends timeless teams, 1999 upper deck century legends, and a few more upper deck issues from the early 2000's that focused on retired players.
i've considered putting 1991 topps in a binder, but that's about it. anyway, the question here is - should i put my upgraded 1979 topps set in a binder?
here's what the first page would look like.
full of dysfunction (love the bob knepper (39) lean and the fact that rob andrews (21) is kneeling out in no-man's land). not quite as much as the 1978 phillies team card, but close.
please sound off in the comments, and who knows? i might take your advice.
