About this set: My passion for this set began in March 2008 when I stumbled upon two NM-MT raw Mini's of Hal McCrae and Davey Lopes at a local card shop while rooting around for regular-sized '75's. I subsequently began and completed a 660-card Mini set that consisted of a combination of graded (about 100) and ungraded cards in 2009. Out of love for the colorful '75 design, the Mini's relative scarcity in higher grades, and the condition challenges that come with collecting Mini's, I began pursuit of this registry set in August 2010, and completed it two years later with all cards graded 7 and higher. I then decided to upgrade the set to have all cards graded 8 and higher, and I reached that goal in December 2014 with the purchase of card #564 Tommy Davis. In building this set, I've targeted cards that completely fill the card holder, including as much as possible, the red/yellow and green/yellow color combos which tend to come factory short right out of the pack. Going forward, I plan to continue upgrading the set from time to time with nicely conditioned, full-sized examples.
