Mike Rich's Wantlist

Updated to 8-15-16

This list is of my Bowman & Topps wants only. This page has my HIGHEST PRIORITY SETS; the 1949 Bowman and the 1952 Topps. See the links for numerous other lists. Added Venezuelan BB cards to the end of the Canadian BB list. My other favs are the Coke caps (see link below) and the 1930s matchbooks (on the prewar link for BB, on the FB & hockey links for those sports).
I generally have some cards, publications, coke caps, etc. to trade from any set I am working on. My strongest doubles are in 1968-1976 in all sports, but I do have some dupes from prewar-Present. Most pre-1975 dupes are not mint. I am also interested in most oddball & regionally issued sports sets. * means card needs to be upgraded.
Although I have NOT compiled a list, I also collect skeds & All Star ballots of major, minor, college and high school teams. All sports.
