Allow me a moment to bask in the satisfaction that comes from a complete set. This one is all the more special as it is the first vintage set that I’ve been able to put together.
Here is the final card I needed and his place in the page that completed the set for me:
Here are a couple of my favorite pages as well:
Tough to go wrong with pages that include Mr. Cub and Clemente.
As I mentioned in a previous post, this set looks amazing in a binder. I’m contemplating which vintage set to go after next, but I doubt it will give me the same pleasure that the ’71 has. The classic look of the black border has me enamored.
Okay, I lied. I will probably chase the 1969 set next, so if anyone out there can help me out please visit my want page. Shameless plug for my own blog!
Additionally, I’m planning a contest as celebration of completing the set. Be on the look out in a day or two to see what I have for the winner as well as the contest entry itself.
Thank you to all who helped complete this set! I’m excited that 2013 will be the “Year of Vintage” across the blogosphere. (Disclaimer: 2013 may or may not actually be the “Year of Vintage”)
