1990 Topps

I now have spent a week on Topps 1990. I own way more 1990 Topps cards than I thought I owned. I am 99% sure I have two complete sets and most likely many incomplete sets. I'm thinking at this time that I will probably only keep 3 binders worth. I admit I like these cards better than when I purchased them in 1990. Since I have hardly touched them since then, they are in great condition. I did pick up a few hundred of them (maybe over a thousand) in 2020 while aquiring other cards. 12 Most Valuable 1990 Topps Baseball Cards #414 Frank Thomas Rookie Card #336 Ken Griffey Jr. #692 Sammy Sosa Rookie Card #757 Larry Walker Rookie Card #701 Bernie Williams Rookie Card #331 Juan Gonzalez Rookie Card #1 Nolan Ryan #2 Nolan Ryan (The Mets Years) Baseball Card #3 Nolan Ryan (The Angels Years) Baseball Card #4 Nolan Ryan (The Astros Years) Baseball Card #5 Nolan Ryan (The Rangers Years) Baseball Card #300 Bo Jackson Baseball Card

2021 Goals

1) Catalog at least half of my 1990's baseball cards. I have many thousands to do. I believe 10-15 thousand cards between 1990 - 1999 that still need to be cataloged. 2) Additionally, I would like to put all of my 1990's cards into binders. That project will be expensive and as time consuming as goal #1. 3) Also I would like to create more videos for youtube and try to make them more pesonalble. 4) Lastly, I will be aquiring more cards, but purchase less and specifically for certain holes in the following sets: 1959 Topps 1962 Topps 1964 Topps 1972 Topps

End of 2020 update

Six days ago, I finally posted a video blog on Youtube.  This video is a summary of 2020.  But even after this video I have purchased more cards. https://youtu.be/oPtyQG0Xqug This has been the year of sets for me.  I have grown many of my older sets.  I have spent hours putting card sets into binders.  Lastly, I have moved the entire collection to a new home. I would say the end of the year focus was on 1958 Topps and 1975 Topps. Today's purchase of 1975 Topps cards.

Early Cards/Binders/more

Over the weekend I have placed all of my 1958 to 1972 Topps baseball cards into labeled and divided white binders. I probably have over 1/3 of my entire collection in binders now. Out of binders again.  I hope to have the remainder of the 70s done soon.  Looking forward to doing 1975 the most.  Even nicer are my super sturdy new iron rod steel book shelves I have placed these binders on.   Additionally, I have most of my Cubs memorabilia up on the walls now!  Need to purchase frames for my flags. Cataloging:  Currently cataloging 1992 Leaf silver set. Newest acquisition: 1958 Topps Roger Maris
