Since 1972 is my birth year, I seriously thought about building a Topps set from that year. However, looking at the costs of the high number cards from this set sobered me up pretty quickly and I've decided against pursuing this idea, at least for the moment. But I can still take a gander at this colorful set, thanks to my sampler album, and I didn't have to put a lot of work or money into it.
That's the beauty of my sampler album project. It's totally aligned with my half ass work ethic, as well as my tendency to change my mind about what cards I want to collect. Since I only need to complete one page per set, I can jump around freely. If I get on a vintage kick, I can focus on those years. Or I can linger on the modern stuff.
I just filled up the page for 1972, and I'm pretty pleased with it overall:
