Collecting Tips: Teams
Many collectors narrow their choices to their favorite teams. Consider first getting all of the players issued in one or more of your favorite years. For instance, in 1971, there were 27 different Pirates issued at a catalogue list price in mint condition of around $200; and for vg a quarter of that. (More than half of that would be for the Roberto Clemente card). Some zealous collectors opt for the challenge of collecting all of the players from a particular team issued from 1948 in the Topps and Bowman sets – cutting off wherever they feel comfortable (in the mid 80s, 90s, or even going through the present). There are checklist books to help find the numbers you need.
