Goal Complete: Nolan Ryan

This lovely card marks the completion of another of this year's goals. The goal was to have every Topps flagship regular (non-subset) Nolan Ryan card from 1972 through 1994. I picked up the 1973 and 1974 cards at the end of December, and the 1975 single in mid-January. I finally tracked down an affordable copy in decent-enough shape from the 1972 set, and now I'm much closer to completing a full run of Ryan's Topps cards. Of course, what I've paid for all the cards from 1972 to 1994 will probably be less than the 1968 rookie card.

Let's see if I can get the 1969, 1970, and 1971 cards in the bag by the end of the year!


  1. Nice pick-up! Good luck on the rest.

  2. Great pick up. I am one card short from the complete run! Good luck on the next few.

  3. Best of luck! I'm trying to add his 1971 card to my collection as well.

  4. Thanks, guys! Hopefully I do have a bit of luck in the coming months.
