Going in, I wouldn't have figured that would be my last one. But those '61 MVP subsets are so sensitive to fish eyes and print lines that I was holding out for a nice looking example. Not sure why, maybe because all of the blue in the background. Although, 61's in general seem to have bad fish eye issues too..so maybe Topps just needed to upgrade their printing presses after the 1961 season.My all time favorite subset!!!!!
Nice ! I have some unopened packs too. Some that are graded. Have you ever seen the 1983 Topps foil packs ? They were a test issue in the Michigan area.
Thanks. I bought my packs in the late 90's. I bought unopened Topps wax boxes from the late 70's and early 80's to build my baseball sets. When the boxes were a lot less expensive. And I had a little extra money. I wish I had bought more and not opened them the way the prices are now. But we all say that these days.Those are nice! I got into vintage unopened too late I think. Prices on the 70's-earlier stuff is so expensive now. No way am I affording a whole box, so I have to resort to packs and even those aren't cheap.
