Within the last week I picked up the last card I needed to complete the 1965 Topps set, a 65T Horlen LL card. I'm pretty excited because that set is one of my most favorite Topps designs ever! The set has:
- 3 HOFer's (Lopez, Wilhelm and DeBusschere [basketball HOF])
- 5 deceased players/mgr. (Lopez, Wilhelm, Burgess, DeBusschere and Buzhardt)
- 4 multi-signed cards (Peters/Horlen LL, Howard/Staehle RC, Berry/Gibson RC and Bollo/Locker RC)
It was a fun set to put together because it had a nice mix of TTMer's in there and had several members from one if the best pitching staffs of the 60's! Plus, it's my fourth Topps team set I have been able to complete.
I also picked up two (Lamabe and Stanky) of the three 66T cards I needed to complete that set. The other card, a 66T Buford, I have, but I'm not too sure of it. It was bought from a source I trust a ton. but the signature is much different than any other Buford I have seen before...either way, I only have one more to complete the 66T set as well.
It would be nice to finish 2010 with five Sox Topps team sets completed! Especially after starting 2010 with zero team sets completed!!!
