Yep-like some others on here this was the first set I completed. Rough did not begin to describe the condition. Then about 20 years later my Dad surprised me with about 1500 1971 cards he bought from a guy he worked with and handed them to me. Much better condition! Still it's probably and overall VGEX set but one I'd probably never part with.

I also started my baseball card collecting fanaticism in 1971 and stopped buying wax packs when I started high school in 1976. Luckily, my story is a rare one as my parents moved twice after that but took my card collection with them and ultimately sent it back to me in the mid 90's. Slowly finishing the 25% or so from my collections to finally arrive at complete sets. Possibly more fun now then when I was collecting them as a kid.....

The 1971 Topps set was my first. I immediately became obsessed with collecting, and I always spent my allowance on cards.
