Default Player or set runs

I hear talk of the regular Baseball hobby talk of PC's some of the today's players,
but not too many of vintage collectors, actually I think it's easier to collect a complete topps run of a certain player like Reggie Jackson, Frank Robinson etc. as if you have a topps run of these players, 1 card every year you have a good amount of the cards, anybody collect that way? I was thinking of doing something like that for a few of the great HOF's as long as it doesn't go way back cause those can get expensive!!

On the NET54 board, there is a collector who has a complete set topps run from 1951 to present I think, that is kind of neat, the thing is this person has them all raw, I consider that a TRUE collector
I have a lot of the complete sets in the 1980's (the worthless ones) but, I am thinking of dipping into the 70's by going back to about 1975 or so, maybe buying some complete and in order to provide a bit of a challenge collecting a few of them by lots and then gradually card by card.

Well, I'm not quite back to the 70's yet but I've got every Topps set from 85 to now (save 98 that I need a few cards to finish). I'm within 50 cards on 83 and 82 and need 2 to finish 84.

Once those are done, I'll work on 80 and 81. My ultimate goal is to get back to 1972.
