Does that give y'all a good idea of just exactly how overwhelmed I've been by the deluge of incoming stuff here, and why scans are happening so slowly? This doesn't count the 5000+ doubles I have from the '70s. 2011 was a very good year on certain fronts, owing to some truly amazing deals out in the world (most of the '75 set including the Brett rookie, the Ryan, the Schmidt, etc. and nearly the entire high series from '71 along with a ton of doubles in a single shoebox for $50 was probably the best) and some even more amazing ones via trade with you, my readers. Thanks to everyone who's contributed to the latter. I'll get to highlights as I get to 'em. In the meantime, if you need '70s Topps cards, give a yell. I'm just about dug out from the last round of trades.

  1. Always looking for Kalines, man, if you have any to spare.

  2. Don't know what I have, probably not much (I just got my first '73 over the weekend, and I don't think I have '70-'72 yet), but if I come across any, I'll let you know.
