    Post I got 29 years to finish this project

    Greetings:
    This Ad will be removed when you a member of sportscardforum.com


    Just recently in a trade on here I acquired a starter lot of some 1975 O PEE CHEE Baseball. My goal before I turn 75 years old (I'll be 46 this year in June) a whole 29 years to try to complete this set. When I was about to turn 30 I made the regular 1975 Topps set. Then after I talked about how I achieved that someone said I should have a go at the 1975 Topps Mini set before I turned 40. Well....I did it I'm sure if you dig through some of my posts you can see how I did it. Now you wonder why I don't want to try to finish the OPC set before I turn the big 5-0 well....I have another reason I want to finish my `79/`80 Topps Hockey Set for my 5-0 present & I am just down to 1 Card in which I am planning & hoping to find an inexpensive non-graded version of card #18 that being the Wayne Gretzky RC. So with that set almost done I couldn't possibly pass up a chance to get my hands on this starter set thanks to @BigStarrCards seeing if anyone would be interested in any Vintage O PEE CHEE I told him I was interested in any of the 1975s he said the condition of them weren't the best but I don't care after receiving them on April 14th 2021 I am blown away on how beautiful they are. I can't wait to find the rest. Hopefully I can keep you all informed on this journey plus I like to hear from others on what their thoughts are as I try to accomplish this set. Thanks for taking the time to read this post hopefully like I mentioned I hear from you.

    Greetings:
    I thought I would give an update on the progress of things again thanks to @BigStarrCards for your help on this journey. Just recently he contacted me about a friend of his by the name of Ron Cronk of New Brunswick,Canada that Ron might have some 1975 O PEE CHEE Baseball & if he did well he pass along my needs to him & see what he can do. Well thanks to Ron via @BigStarrCards he will have me once I receive them in the mail I can delete all these numbers you see before you.

    I'm so excited & overwhelmed about this I can't wait for it to come in. Thanks again guys. I still like to hear from others about a set that they are making that they are working on kinda like what I am doing that perhaps I might be able to assist on or someone might read what you are trying to accomplish & might be able to help on I say this cause less than 2 months ago I had the pleasure of helping out my friend @LoQtus with his 1959 Topps set by finding the last card he needed of #316 Ralph Lumenti variation (didn't mention his option to Chattanooga on the back) so anyway that's the latest news when they come in I'll post up the remainder of what I have yet to find so I hope to hear from others & once again huge thanks to Ron Cronk of New Brunswick,Canada & @BigStarrCards for helping me out by the way Bigstarrcards is from Nova Scotia try to help him out with his needs too he sounds like a great guy from all the messages that we've been sending to each other as I embark this journey of a set.

    Greetings:
    A little update since the last post I received a phone call from my mother saying that I had a package in the mail today from my good friend @BigStarrCards in other words I received my 2nd round through his friend Ron Cronk. I haven't counted what I have remaining but anyway here's the list of what I need still hoping to hear still from others once again thanks to Ron Cronk & @BigStarrCards for their help.

    1 5 6 11 16 25 26 33 34 37 57 60 61 62 64 80 96 98 99 100 101 103 106 107 108 129 132 139 141 142 146 147 148 150 156 158 161 162 166 169 172 175 179 185 187 190 193 194 195 196 198 200 201 203 205 211 214 219 228 239 240 241 245 246 258 260 262 266 271 274 276 277 278 280 282 283 285 286 288 297 300 302 306 310 311 315 318 320 323 325 327 332 333 335 341 342 348 350 356 364 365 366 373 376 377 378 381 386 390 391 392 395 398 409 410 414 417 421 423 427 428 430 431 437 439 443 447 455 458 461 463 469 471 476 477 483 484 486 487 490 499 500 503 510 514 515 519 528 530 537 540 541 543 554 559 561 562 563 568 572 577 579 580 597 598 600 602 605 611 616 617 620 623 629 631 640 646 647 651 658 660

    Greetings:
    Well @BigStarrCards did it again I recently got in my mailbox a package from him & in it was a starter lot of the 1979 O PEE CHEE as well 9 more 75s from my list. So here's an updated version of the list of what I need still & soon as get the 79s organized they will be going on my site but I am still excited about 9 off the list. I thank @BigStarrCards again for coming through again hoping that someone can help you out with your needs. I also want to point out that so far I have had only one person comment on this journey just because it is not high end MOJO or the newest product I like to hear from others still I'm sure someone is trying to do something like this or have done something similar it's stuff like that I'm sure others would like to read about instead of all the negative things about hobby. Now without further ado here's the updated list



    1 5 11 16 25 26 33 34 37 57 60 61 62 64 80 96 98 99 100 101 103 106 107 108 129 132 139 141 142 146 147 148 150 156 158 161 162 166 169 172 175 179 185 187 190 193 195 196 200 201 205 211 214 219 228 239 240 241 245 246 258 260 262 266 271 274 276 277 278 282 283 285 286 288 297 302 310 311 315 318 320 323 325 327 332 333 335 341 342 348 350 356 364 365 366 373 376 377 378 381 386 390 391 392 395 398 409 410 414 417 421 423 427 428 430 431 437 439 443 447 455 458 461 463 469 471 476 477 483 484 486 487 490 499 500 503 510 514 515 519 528 530 537 540 541 543 554 559 561 562 563 568 572 577 579 580 597 598 600 602 605 611 616 617 620 623 629 631 640 646 651 658 660

    Well Stuart it looks great that you are getting closer every day. It will not take you 29 year. I can promise you that.

    Greetings:
    Well tonight is opening night for the 2021 National Sports Card Convention in Rosemont Illinois. Nothing to report about this project as of late. I truly hope that I can locate a couple of these cards during my time here at the Convention as always I will keep you posted on what I find from there & I also truly hope that someone can help me as well. With this said I am off to Rosemont.
