    1967 Topps High Numbers - What was your toughest card to find?

    Every '67 Topps collector has a different story about their toughest card. What was yours? A clean, affordable Shellenback is eluding me.

    I don't know how hard those are but I have been working on a 62 Post Cereal set for a long time.

    1967 Topps is an awesome set but I'm not collecting the whole set, just the Phillies cards from it. The toughest card? Well I still need 4 Phillies cards that are in the 500's, and 3 of them are SP's. The toughest one would be #560, the Jim Bunning SP. He had a pretty good career and is currently a Senator of Ky. I beleive.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I finished my 67 set a while ago. I had a hell of time trying to find a decent Don Clendenon #535 that was centered.

    I'm noticing a ton of "reprint" Seaver rookies out there, which seem obviously intended as counterfeits (not marked, being sold by "well this doesn't say reprint so it might be real but I'm saying it's a reprint"). The Norm Cash and Red Sox TC are on my want list, not tough to find, but hard to find cheap!

    Speaking on 1967 High #'s, I found a lot of 1967s in an antique shop in Putnam CT last year. Several High #'s included, a few DPs, but also a few SPs, all in NM shape. Gorgeous cards, I remember a Joe Ad**** that looked pack fresh. Did real well on ebay, for a $20 investment.

    I do not put full sets together, but I'd say that the Brooks Robinson (although not hard to find) would have been my hardest to get. I wanted it so badly since I was a kid because it was hard to get, but never wanted to pay the price for one until much later in life.

    I would still like to add several other 67 Hi#s, but still not willing to pay the premiums.

    That leads me to think about a 66T Hi# that I want as well, but just can't pony up the crazy bucks this card brings...Grant Jackson/Bart Shirley SP!!

    I always thought #609 would be hardest to find in nice condition. Because kids like me used to put elastics around my cards.

    I'm seeing those fakes too. There are so many counterfeit Seavers that I think I'm going to have to shell out for a PSA.

    I think that Cash and the Red Sox team were the toughest and last couple of cards for me to find at a decent price in the shape I wanted, when I put the set together.
