I've developed a real strong appreciation for vintage cards during the 5 1/2 years of writing this blog. I'm just about finished with the '64 Topps set, I have a good start on sets from '62, '68 and '70 and I have a decent amount of cards from the '67 and '69 sets. Oh, and let's not forget about '59
Those half a dozen sets by themselves are going to cost a pretty penny to finish. RC's such as Nolan Ryan, Rod Carew, Reggie Jackson and others are going to cost a small fortune, not to mention having to find cards of Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays.
So when I saw today that Gavin from the Baseball Card Breakdown blog is starting a '57 Topps set, it got me to thinking....
How in the world will I be able to finish every set that I've ever bought cards for? The simple truth is I won't be able to. No how, no way, fuhgedabboutit.
So, depending on what Gavin thinks about the cards below, he may have himself a few '57s to add to his set build.
'57 is a beautiful set simply because it's simple. Would I love to build it? Oh my God yes.
I just don't think it's in the cards.
I'm hoping that Gavin will want them. Temptation is just too great. That's being realistic....
Thanks for reading, Robert
