Default Which set are you working on or have complete?

I'm working on 1961 Topps PSA 7 or better and was wondering what the rest of the vintage collectors on this site are working on or have completed.

I am doing 1970-1980. My main focus right now is 1980 in PSA 10 (About 25% complete). If anyone has a ton of singles, I will be happy to take them off your hands for the right price.

I am trying to buy large quantities, sub what is worth subbing, and sell off doubles to help pay for the rest. It's not working.

55 Topps PSA 6 NQ set. I'm about 35% finished. I got the Koufax out of the way but the Clemente will be tough. Set is looking great so far.

My set is more of a player set as I am trying to collect every regular issue card of Willie Mays (1951-1973) in his playing years. Twenty seven cards in all if you exclude his league leader cards and all star cards, which I plan to get later in a broader master set. I plan to get them all in PSA slabs with the 50s in collector grade (VG to EX), 60s in mid grade (EX to NM) and 70s in high end (NM to Mint). I have 10/27 so far after about 1 year of time put into it.

Nothing completed in the vintage set world yet, however, I am primarily working on the 1959 Topps set, currently 87/572 after ~6 months (with a few big ones out of the way already). About to start on the 1966 Topps and 1973 Topps sets sometime soon. Finally, even though they are not technically vintage (or highly sought after for that matter), I am working on all sets from 1988.

Yeah that is crazy. I wish I could start those two. You have the big two out of each?

Finished sets of 1961, 1964 30% PSA 7 or better, 1969-1972.

And my favorite set. 1956 Topps all PSA 7 or better. Took almost five years to complete and still upgrading.
