Strive For '65 Status Saturday: Been SportLotin'

23 January 2016
Strive for '65 | 1965 Set Build | Master Want List
 Current card count: 246/598 (248/600) 41.5%

As I mentioned last status update post (the first of this kind of post sort of) I did some ordering on Sportlots. The first cards that came in (last Saturday of curse the day my last update was posted) were all from one dealer at $1.00 each. There were five more modern cards with them from the 2003 Topps Bazooka set, but that doesn't matter here for this post. This post and any later posts will only mention cards from the 1965 Set build, even if it was just one card from a box of thousands.

I will list the cards newest arrivals listed first and grouped as they came.

Tuesday 19 Jan 2016: Wow I tied my record for most packages received for a card mail day at 13 packages (3 bubble mailers, 10 PWEs). Not all had 1965 cards, but I got a total of 13 cards to add to this set.

  1. Every time someone posts a '65, I fall more and more in love with the set. It's the images. The layout is a little too much, but growing on my. But those photos. How amazing is that Cannizzaro? Pure heaven right there.
