I've been working on collecting this set off and on (more off than on) for the last 37 years. I put bids on the last 12 cards I needed on an ebay set break and got 4 of them tonight. I was fortunate and found a seller that charged $2.75 shipping for the first card and free on all other cards, which made it affordable.
I got those for cards for under $20 with shipping. One was a semi-high, but the other three were from the high series. I think I got a pretty good deal.
Anyway, thanks to both of you for indulging me in reading through this post with no information, no pictures and all about me. Rich Reese, Bobby Murcer, Rick Monday and some Twins Rookies: you're mine. Paul Blair, Walter Alston, Rookie Pitchers, Rookie 1Bmen, Jerry Koosman, Bobby Bonds, Jack Aker and Jim Rooker.....you're in the crosshairs. I'm a little surprised that now I'm under 10 to go that I know them all. I'm not sure I need a checklist anymore. Hopefully I'll find them all by the time I get to #660.
They can't all be heroes
