Would this, perchance, be it?

McCosky 92

You may (or may not) have more dough than me, but you certainly are willing to spend more dough than I am willing to spend on cards. I hope we all live long enough and avoid dementia long enough to see it completed.

Nice choice Matt, good luck!

I do have to throw in the why not do both and just take your time ) Thats kinda the way I do it and I think it lets you get better deals as you can pick and choose from a larger pool.

Yes bbo, that is indeed the card. I don't know about avoiding dementia. But, I am 41; so I should be able to finish this set while most of us are still around \:\)

Scott,
There is no way I could afford to do both sets. I am not a whale! If anything, I might do a player set on the side.

cammb,
Thanks, I got it for $450.00.

goldenhawk,
The '57 set has definitely been broken up. I have seen individual cards pop up for sale, here and there. I do not know who bought it.

Hate to stir the pot but you will always have '57s knawing at you, why fix something that is not broken? Rebuild your '57 set. While I like the 52s do you really want to plough hundreds of dollars into high #'s that could be used to purchase star cards? Also, I think the 52s have a lot of boring portrait poses/head shots and much of your $ will be used buying common cards, of common players whereas '57 has many more rookies, stars, etc. 57s are cheaper too

I agree. I've tried 52's, 55's, 56's and for whatever reason can't get interested in them and scrap the project. 57's to me are different. I could really get into upgrading my 57 set, but that's just me and the way I collect which makes the hobby so great. In addition to the rookies, stars et al, it was the last year the Dodgers and Giants were in Brooklyn and New York.
