Today I was able to purchase 63 more 1971 Topps cards which officially put me at the halfway mark of completing the 1971 set. Granted I still have a ways to go, especially since a lot of the cards I'm missing are either high number, hall of famers, or rookie cards. It doesn't help that I'm being very picky on what cards I add to this set since I'm trying to make sure the cards are in excellent condition (or better). I would like to hit the 500 mark by the end of this year, but since I've been neglecting my 1940s and 50s Bowman Reds sets I may have to shelve that until I complete some of my vintage Reds team sets. Regardless, I can celebrate today that I've reached the midpoint of this set. The question remains however, does this mean my glass is half full or half empty in regards to chasing this set?
