    Next question, might you have any of these in NM condition? Looking for bright colors (some look drab, not sure why) and no cracks:

    Chris: On the '71s, I have one complete NRMT no cracks set, but I am ten away from my second one. I checked my list, and I'm afraid I don't have nice extra copies of the ones you need. I haven't made any progress on this second set in awhile. Going to a decent sized show in a few weeks and hopeful about finding some. On the '79s, the extra Sutter and Guidry I have are not the bright version. I call them orange, they seem to have an orange tint to them, vs the red, or bright version. Same with the Yaz, but it has some discoloration as well, sorry.

    Neeman: Surprisingly, no. Sorry.

    Thank you for checking! Do you have any idea why some of the 79s appear orange? Just curious I guess.

    Also, how are you storing your 71s? Some of mine are curled and I’m hesitant to pit them in a holder fur fear of cracking. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I don't know what the deal is with the '79s, but I don't think I have ever really tried to dig up any info. You've got me thinking now, I may see what I can find.

    Ahh, storing Kellogg's, definitely a quandary. I store my first set in pages in an album standing up, like a book on a shelf. The pages allow a little play for some curl and take some pressure off (hopefully!), but I don't include any that have significant curl in my NM sets. With my second set and other NM ones, this is what I do. If I purchase or receive it and it is flat in a top loader/cardsaver, I leave it in that if I can tell the card is truly flat. But, if you look, you can usually see if it had curl but was put in a holder as the top and bottom edges will have a little curl and be pushing against the inside of the holder. You can see this in PSA graded Kellogg's on eBay if you enlarge. I never purchase one like that, I believe they will crack over time. Also, I will ask the seller/trader if the card had been curled and loose and they placed it in a holder, or will request that a loose one with some curl not be placed in a regular holder. For those I get that have some curl, I will put them in a top loader designed for thick game used cards which allows for the curl without placing stress on them. If they have significant curl, I simply don't put them in anything more than a sleeve and stack them. But yes, putting curled ones in flat holders will cause cracking over time. Lastly, I just try to keep them away from wide temperature variations. Finicky things for sure. Hope some of this you can find helpful. I will add those you listed that you needed to my list and see if I have any luck at that show.

    Years back, I learned the hard way. Ordered a 71 K Palmer, put it in a sheet and at some point, it cracked on my watch. I was devastated and am leery now.

    I went to The National this year and a couple of dealers had crack free versions. I pecked off 8 from my list. Also picked up a few cracked versions for fillers, very cheap.

    Fun, but tough set. Awesome that you are closing in on number 2.

    Yeah, me too. Had a '71 Clemente crack while in my possession, that one definitely hurt.

    That's great you got to go to the National, and nice you found some there. I had a source here locally, but he was older and had some health issues and stopped setting up at shows. I miss him. I initially started my first set after my LCS had someone sell him a box of probably a hundred or so, and I ended up buying almost all of them, cracked or not.

    Yeah, tough set for sure, but kinda fell in love with it, and just patiently keep on plugging.

    I would be all over all of those if not cracked, but, I am doing a cracked '71 set with all of those that I have accumulated and could use the #68 Stargell if it just has cracks and is in decent shape otherwise. But again, I don't have any hits from your list unfortunately. I have seen your list before and would have liked to see about some of your other stuff, just no hits.
