It's been a while

Yes, it has been a while since I've showed off a complete page of '64 Topps.  One of the reasons for that is because I've taken my own sweet time putting away the spoils of the previous 2 months card shows.

Now that I'm catching up, here is card #154-162

The Dick Tracewski in the upper left is the final card I needed to complete this page.  The Duke Snider card in the top center brought back some memories.  I remembered posting about the Duke a while ago, so I decided to try and find the post to see how long it's been.

March of 2012 is when I picked up the Duke, so it's been almost 2 years since I started the pursuit of the '64 Topps set.  In the past, if I'd spent 2 years or more on a set, it would have either been put in the back of the closet, or up for sale on eBay.

I still have  1/3 of the set still to collect, but chasing after this set has probably been one of the most rewarding pursuits I've had as a collector.  I'm pretty sure that this is one set that will not end up in the back of the closet.

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. 4 big names and a cool multi-player card. Nice page.

  2. Funny, I have 3 of that Tracewski card. It's the most plentiful '64 I have.

  3. Great page! The Duke is definitely the star. What a great card!
