A while back I posted about picking up my first 1963 Pepsi Colt .45 panel. I was able to pick up three more panels recently.
I've also picked up a bunch of 1951 Topps Red Backs recently to start that set. What a cool set that is. It has a total of 54 cards in it due to two variations. I now have eighteen of them. Here is an example. There are also Blue Backs but they are much more difficult to complete and I am not working on them.
The cards are small at only about 2 x 2 5/8 inches. The were originally packed with two cards attached together in pairs that were perforated. You'll notice that this one has the little tabs of the perforations at the bottom.
I also picked up a bunch of 1968 Topps Game cards for my second set. I started a second set so I could actually play the game with my son. It's a fun game to play and a fun set to put together so I figured what the heck, let's do another one.
I also picked up a few more 1969 Nabisco Team Flakes. I really like that set a lot. I have half the 24 card set now. I prefer the cards to have nice big yellow borders, but I'll take what I can get. Here is an example of what they look like.
I am really getting into the E98s lately. I've read that the commons are actually tougher to come by than the HOFers which would make sense since I have more HOFers than commons at this point. I'm thrilled to have this orange background, I just think it looks so nice.
Well, those are some of my newest pick ups. I hope you like them.
Enjoy the hobby all...it's a great one.
