Thanks, Rob. I am collecting T 205s and 1958 Topps in raw vg/ex or better. I bought card pages in black. Take a look.

Tony,

Those are terrific! I am putting together ungraded sets of '57 and '59 Topps. Both will be in albums. I have some higher grade graded material that I am about to sell. The money I make from those graded cards will go a long way toward my ungraded sets that I am building.

I like those black pages. Where'd you get them??

Thanks, Rob. The 58 set is moving along pretty nicely. It feels good to collect again without the pressure of tpgers.

That's the way to do it, Robert. I recently sold my graded set of 49 Bowmans and put most of the money into my raw sets including my 52 Berk Ross. I got the black pages on ebay.

Good to hear! After I get the 57 or 59 set finished (if there is such a thing), 58 is up next for me. I feel the EXACT same way about the pressure of tgpers. It took me a little while to work up the "courage" (I know that sounds stupid) to sell my higher grade slabbed cards. I almost felt like I was doing something wrong even thinking about selling the graded cards and trading "down." I successfully sold some last night by the way. For a while, I even fell into the trap of buying holders and not cards. I just turned 40, and I remember collecting before grading. Albeit back then I was buying 80s crap! I am having fun again. I think some people think you can't have standards unless you are involved in graded cards. I am still looking for crease/wrinkle free, clean cards vgex or better. I love flipping through my heavy duty binders.

Same here. I just sold some graded 57s that are financing some nice, ungraded crease/wrinkle free mid-grade 57s that I am buying from someone local. This is way more affordable and I am much happier out of the grading game. I don't anticipate ever going back. I am a collector. Not to mention the fact that my wife is happier, too. \:\)
