Well, it’s officially started. I used my bookmarked searches on ebay for 1973 & 1981 Topps. Since I don’t have much else to post, I have come up with a few ideas.
- 1973 Topps
- 1981 Topps
- Today’s 9 (subject to change)
Every time I receive a 1973 or 1981 Topps, I will post each card and talk about it, sort of like the blogs for certain years that we all know about, but I’m not starting a new blog and I probably won’t have much to say about the card. But we’ll see where it goes. I don’t have the knack to get all into the details, I wish I did, because that’s why I read those other blogs. My love for cards stems from my love of baseball. Not from my love of the photographs or cards themselves.
Also, as stated in a previous blog, I organized all my White Sox collection into alphabetical by last name. I had fun doing this, so many memories of growing up. I used to organize my cards one day by player, the next day by teams, then by years or brands. This was a daily ritual growing up, only I had thousands upon thousands of cards, probably upwards of 10,000 and I would organize all the time for hours on end. But back to this project, it took me a couple of evenings, maybe around 7 or 8 hours. I have decided for another regular series of posts, when I fill one side of a page (yes I use both sides, because I’m cheap) I will scan the page and review it here. Some will be great players, some will be “who is that” pages. I know most of these won’t interest you because they will all be White Sox players, but I’m doing it anyways. You can skip those days if you’d like, I won’t take offense. I already scanned all the pages that I’ve completed so far so look for those to start. One thing I learned with this project was, holy crap, I have a lot of Frank Thomas cards. Probably more than any of my player collections So there will be a bunch of those posts. Hopefully those will be starting soon.
I went through my cards this evening to see if I had any cards from those years to start my sets. I found 1 1973 card. Which of course will be the hardest set to finish. And I found 0 1981 cards. So it looks like I’m pretty much starting both these sets from scratch. Oh well, more fun that way.
