i wrote a post earlier this year about my vascillation regarding collecting the 2014 topps heritage set. i noted that i was still trying to finish the 2003 upper deck vintage set that used the 1965 topps design, as well as pay some attention to the 1965 topps set itself.
since then, i've decided not to chase the heritage set, and i picked up the last six cards i needed to complete what i consider to be the base 2003 ud vintage set. i still 'need' most of the 3-d slugger subset cards that seem to have been ridiculously short printed, but i am going to consider this set complete without them.
the last six cards i needed were all short prints themselves, led by ichiro
and mike piazza
the giambi and pena trades were played out in the 'moneyball' movie.
so, with that set done, i guess now i'll really focus on 1965 topps. i've started by picking up 6 random needs at a low cost. i think with heritage this year, there has been a renewed interest in the 1965 cards (i am proof of that), so cheap lots are hard to come by. anyway, here are the six cards i've obtained recently.
speaking of dodgers, i need to track down most of them again for the set. anybody got an extra koufax?
