Strive For '65: Slowly Not So Surely

It has been a few weeks since I have made any progress in this goal. With a little more than 8 months to go, it is looking more and more like it will not get finished in time.

In a recent small lot of nine cards from sportlots I added one card to my 1965 Topps Baseball Set Build. It was the main card of the four cards or so that I was interested in of the nine cards and the 2nd oldest (the oldest looking one is actually a more modern reprint). The cards were delivered promptly and pretty safely in a padded envelope. They were in a nine-pocket binder page with the page folded up by the rows, similar to what many are doing now with PWEs.

Lets look at the most recent addition to my Strive For '65 Project:

Card #158 Dick Sisler Reds (Front and Back)

So the updated numbers:
177/598 (179/600) 29.9%

Some of those other cards I will mention in this blog sometime later, maybe. The Expos card of course I will mention sometime on my Curly W Cards blog.
