3 more pieces to the '64 puzzle, and the weekly winner

This has been a good week to obtain vintage cards.  Not only was I successful in winning the 3 card '57 Topps lot, I managed to pickup 3 more cards towards my '64 Topps set. 

Yes, the Jim Campbell is off center.  The 3 cards all have decent corners and no pen marks, so I thought that $1.49 apiece wasn't too steep a price to pay.  I'm only 15 cards away from my 80% goal for the year, a goal that I'm hoping to knock out at the National in August.

Moving on to the tournament, the winner for me was no surprise, and there were a few more votes for the 1980 set than I expected, but moving on by a margin of 13-7 is....

'69 Topps.  The next match, which starts tomorrow, is the first that features two sets from the same decade.   The battle between '67 and '62 Topps should be an interesting one, and I look forward to reading what everyone has to say about these two sets.

The tournament page will be updated this evening for everyone's viewing pleasure.  I will also give away a couple of rack packs tomorrow morning; everyone who voted for this week's match will have a chance to win one. 

thanks for reading, Robert
