7th Series Checklist (#531)

Here is the 7th Series Checklist for the 1967 set (the so-called "high numbers"). This is my original card, acquired in 1967 as part of the 6th series, and not used for more than a decade (see the blurb in my 1967 blog header).

Since the high numbers were not sold in my area in 1967, I didn't get any of these cards until the 1980s, at which time I started filling in the checklist. You can see below that I was able to get all but five of the cards.

For most of these players, I was able to get their 1968 card, and have something to "play with" back in the day, as I invented line-up games with my cards. However, there were a few players whose last card was in the 1967 7th series, so I had nothing for them until the 1980s (which I've previously posted about in 2011).

In 2010, I finally got the Maury Wills card, but I have refrained from updating the checklist. Maybe someday I will complete this set, although it's unlikely to be in VG-Ex condition, as Brooks Robinson and the Tom Seaver and Rod Carew rookie cards are too pricey. Tommy John (the final card in the set) seems most likely to be my next acquisition.
