Nice set.

FWIW, this whole topic could be discussed in the 'VINTAGE' section...(that I just noticed exists about 3 minutes ago).

Whatever you decide, you should buy a wax box to go with it

Vintage wax is crazy expensive, but so cool.

I would love to do this set but I think my wife would kill me if I even mentioned spending that kind of money on a card, let alone 407 in the set.

For you guys who have done multiple vintage sets, how do you go about putting them together? Buying raw singles? Buying lots of raw singles? Buying graded cards one at a time?

I would go with the 1956 Topps set and the 1969 Topps set. You would get some real nice cards from players that cross over 2 eras.

Good luck!

I buy raw ex-mt to nm raw cards, mostly singles, but have bought a few raw lots of the same quality. I try to stick to ex-mt, or above-just my own personal preference.

My 110% favorite is 1954 Topps

Kaline, Banks, Aaron RCs. Plus so many other great ball players of that time.

BTW, if you want to "add" Mantle and Musial to your 1955 Topps set, Topps released properly sized promo cards of Mantle, Musial, Feller, and Ford, at the National in 2004....they are hard to find, but to pop up on Ebay from time to time.

I gave 1972 (i know its not what your asking) a nice try and have a 4 row monster box full and on some cards up to 10-12 dupes. i like this set for some reason and i wish i could fins some high end high numbers to finish it.

I love the 58 set and 69 set. I'm building both and it's a slow process. 1969 is far easier to find commons in decent shape but centering is a huge issue. The high numbers are the hardest to track down unlike the 58 set. Any set with high numbers gets expensive and takes time.

The first thing you need to do is decide what you are looking for in terms of condition. I'm a guy who cares a lot about visual appeal, so centering matters more to me than anything else. I generally buy all the stars first, usually well-centered Ex/Ex-Mt (i.e. PSA 5/6) cards. That way if I change my mind, I can easily re-sell them.

For the rest of the set, I generally buy large lots of raw singles, keeping the cards which meet my condition requirements, and re-selling the ones I don't.

Once I've completed around 75-80% of the set, I start buying singles.

For financial reasons, I try to avoid sets with expensive RC's. So far I've completed 1955 Bowman Football, 1956 Topps Baseball, 1956 Topps Football, 1961 Fleer Basketball (the one expensive set I did), 1965 Topps Baseball, 1968-69 Topps Hockey, 1970 & 1971 Kelloggs, and 1977-78 Topps Basketball.

Current vintage projects are 1971-72 Topps Basketball & 1976 Topps Baseball.
