Here is my question for those of you out there: What would be the one set that you want that is just out of reach?
Mine is the 1957 Topps baseball, classic design, awesome player selection, and the first set that fits in the standard 9 card sheets. The reasons I don’t collect it are as follows:
1. I don’t have a starter set. Kinda hard to get going without it.
2. I have three Topps sets that are not complete, so they come first.
3. No one I know here has any 1957 Topps.
On the cost aspect, sportlots has a lot of cards that I could theoretically afford, but there are about two dozen cards that range from “kinda pricey” to “rent payment”.
