That is nice, how long did it take you to complete? I have recently started working on a 1970 psa 8 or better set and figured it would take probably 5 years to complete.

Man that must have set you back some serious coin. I have picked up a few 56's here and there - nowhere near complete, and not even close to it being PSA 7

Mantle and Clemente cards are great! Good luck with upgrading the set!

took me 2 years do build the set...

There is a LCS that is probably one of the biggest vintage dealers in midwest close to me...

He got me 150 commons all ex nm in one shot...

So i had it easy compared to most... half the set done..

But the rest took a while....

As far as the psa 7 side.. doubt i will every finish... it is fun to do... the chase...

The big guys are the easy part... the commons is tough..

if i ever did finsh it psa... im sure there would be quite a few psa 6's which is fine with me..

can't tell the difference in most cases

Did you start the set in PSA slabs? I thought I remembered you grabbing BVG slabs in the past. If so, did you do crossovers or just replace?

Im still missing the elusive Dale Mitchell in a 8.

Putting the set together is A blast! Enjoying your updates as you piece this beautiful set together. I wish you the best of luck. PM anytime if you have any questions or needs.
