It's been a year since I've posted, but I've been keeping my Vikings "How I Collect" Registry updated with new cards and scans. I'm now 282 out of 414 cards completed (expanding the volume of what to collect from 1961 to 1980). 68% complete.

Brian has helped me add Vikings Team Sets to the registry and this will help drive my focus on the remaining ~1/3 of my quest.

I'd love to share some cards in the thread. I've even loaded images to Photo Bucket. Unfortunately I cannot figure out how to use this message board to include the image directly into the posting. Why so difficult. Help.

Thanks estang for sharing with us again. It is always a pleasure to see another member's progressive and interaction here. It is the best part of being here in my opinion. I think the biggest thrill for me so far since joining the forums boards here is to see all the older members come back and start participating again. I really like that. It gives a sense of quality and presence when I look and see collectors who were originally here when everything first began. Congrats on all the progress you are making in your sets.

Enjoy your collection~

EARL

Erik,

In reply mode, click on the third button from the left in the line of icons even with the word 'Post'. That will pop a dialog box up where you can paste the link to your photos. Make sure you're using the direct link option from photobucket.

I got it raw off of ebay. It was one soft corner away from be gem mint, IMHO. There's a 1975 Alan Page Sugar Daddy that I seek, and I believe another 1975 Gilliam. The above picture is a 1974 card. They are very enjoyable cards -- tobacco-esque...

Yes they are. I just like the way they look. Very nice pickup. Do they show up often on the bay...?

Rarely do I see them at all, let alone in graded or "nice" condition. I think many are off-center or have candy stains on them. I was pretty stoked when I got it in the mail. Paid less than $5 for it shipped.

That Sugar Daddy is cool, it reminds me of 1938 Goudey. Why do you have a Bills card in your collection?
