Default Starting a Vintage Collection...

Where do I start. I'm not looking to break the bank by any means (I'm in College) but always likes the look of 50's-60's Topps. Besides the 50's-60's Topps what would be a good set to start for a person who wants to start to collect vintage. Thanks.

I suggest starting with a guy that you really appreciate the "story" of. I've always been into vintage as my uncle got me started on it as a child but I've recently taken to the story of Minnie Minoso. He's an all time great that should be in the Hall of Fame and his cards can be picked up for cheap. I suggest you find someone similar that you like and start picking their cards up. Then from time to time you can pick up a little higher end cards of Mays, Mantle, Aaron, stuff like that.

Good luck with whatever you decide!

Pick your favorite vintage year...

Start buying commons from that year...

Building vintage sets is the most fun thing to me...

How about putting together some vintage Twins team sets?
