I know, I love this set!! I am a little over 100 cards for the set but i have a ways to go!
It's a tough set to complete. I have about 200 signed for the '70 Topps and am dabbling with this set. I am focusing mostly on the 1976 set. The '70 set has just too many tough deceased players in it that will make it difficult to finish, such as Clemente, Moose, Hodges, Wilson, Kirby, & Murtaugh, to name a few. It won't be impossible to complete. Just very very tough. I think I've only seen a couple signed 1970 Clemente's, for example. There are obviously more, but they are scarce. The '76 set also has a bunch of tough deceased players, but I'm focusing on that set as I already have most of those tough deceased players already in that set.
That is a great set for autos. Lots of action shots, no preprinted signatures. I dabble in those, mainly on the stars/semis when I can find a good deal. I guess that could be said for any vintage set, but I especially like 74-78.
Do you have one of the toughest, Munson?
I actually have the 76 Bostock as well, I believe. My preference would be his 78, because I like that set best for autos.
I saw a 76 Munson go for about $900 on ebay a while back. I thought that was crazy, but then again he obviously was not an easy sig when he was living either. My Munson white whale is his 71 T, although having his 70, 73 and especially his 76, 77 and 78 would be awesome too. The rest of his cards are take or leave cards for me. One of his signed 71s was listed on ebay by a great seller, but he wanted $1200. Too rich for my blood. Offered him $400 and a comment that I knew it was a low ball, but that was all I could go for it. He politely passed.
