I collected all through the 70's the hard way by buying the bubble gum packs. In the early 80's I simply starting buying the sets. I probably have 20,000 or more cards. I quit in the mid-80's.
I also would go to shows and buy older cards. I have a '63 Koufax and a '63 Hank Aaron. I believe that's the right year. Might be '62. Probably my best cards other than the superstars of the 70's.
