I've mentioned my Sampler Album project before in several posts, so I've decided to start tracking the progress here on the blog. As I complete pages for each year in the album, I'll write about it, and leave a link to the post in the "Sampler Album Project" page at the top of the blog.
Quickly, the Sampler Album project is simply an album that has a page dedicated to each Topps flagship set from 1951 to today. I can't (and don't want) to try to try to build every set, and I thought this would be a nice efficient way to look over the history of Topps cards over the years.
The fun part of this project is that each page is never really "finished" until I have 9 cards for that page that I'm totally ecstatic about. I'm sure there will always be a card out there for each year that could warrant a spot in the page over another.
However, I have to say I'm pretty darn satisfied as it is with my 1965 page:
Maybe I'll trade out the Piersall and Fox if I find a couple of other 1965s I like better, but for now, this page is set, and by far the best page in my sampler album.
