Rob,

I own the most gorgeous 1981 Topps football set ever assembled. It's raw, but would blow away anything that 's on the registry. Itís complete minus the Montana RC. I assembled it myself several years ago from a dealer that bought in bulk back in 1981. He must have had 40-50 of each card (several 5000 ct boxes). I went thru card by card picking out the best ones for my set. Itís for sale if youíre interested.



DAVID!!!!!!!!! Are you serious........ok you got me listening. Please get with me via PM to let me know what your looking for on it. This set is my Memory Lane and is the one set that I will never part with period. I was talking to trex the other day and have pictures of me as a kid with these cards on the kitchen table.

Secondly I wanna finish my 1958 Topps Baseball set in all SGC. Im at 62% now and have slowed down to an almost halt at this point but still wanna complete it.

Third I wanna try to pick up a few cards in the next few years that I just wanna have in my little collection. Here are a few:

1975 George Brett
1979 Ozzie Smith
1968 Nolan Ryan
1986 Jerry Rice
1984 Dan Marino
1979 Wayne Gretzky (the only hockey rookie i want)
1965 Joe Namath

Just a few rookies ive had and let go that i want back.....and keep this time.


I had 2 Oz's sent into Beckett, but they got lost.
as for Jerry Rice and Namath, I got those cards.
