1973 Topps–Orta, Harrison, Virdon, Clines

I’m collecting the 1973 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.

73topps-jorgeorta194

  • Card Facts – Jorge Orta – Chicago White Sox – Card #194
  • Purchase Price – free (Trade with “Crinkly Wrappers”)

73topps-roricharrison229

  • Card Facts – Roric Harrison – Baltimore Orioles – Card #229
  • Purchase Price – $.11 (Ebay lot 40/$4.25)

73topps-billvirdon517

  • Card Facts – Bill Virdon – Pittsburgh Pirates – Card #517
  • Purchase Price – $.17 (Ebay lot - 6/$1.04)

73topps-geneclines333

  • Card Facts – Gene Clines – Pittsburgh Pirates – Card #333
  • Purchase Price – $.18 (Ebay lot - 4/$.73)

  • Cards posted in this set – 65
  • Total price paid – $7.55
  • Average price per card – $0.12
  • Cards left to post – 619 (including NNO Checklists)
  • Percentage posted – 65/684 (10% posted)
  • Percentage completed – 299/684 (44% completed)

Even paying for 3 cards in this group, the average per card stayed at $.12.  But you may notice the set completed went from 15% to 37% with a lot of card I bought from Ted at “Crinkly Wrappers” who just finished his set.  Then went up from 37% to 44% with a bunch of 4 card lots I got an ebay.  So a huge boost to the 1973 set since the last post.

I have to scan all the cards from Ted and add them to the randomization of these.  I’ll try to get more of these posts ready so you don’t have to go so long without them.  I know you missed them.
