So Close!

A list of sets that are close to completion, along with the cards I need.

Base Sets


According to the TCDB, these sets are over 85% complete with less than 100 cards remaining. I'd eventually like to complete all of them, but I'm not in a rush.

2016 Topps Archives (91.0% complete)


I'm pretty much resigned to never completing this one. I have no desire at all to chase after the 10 short prints required. I may just have to be content with a set short of short prints.

Smaller Sets


For smaller sets and inserts, I've set the prerequisite to at least 50% complete and a dozen cards or less needed. I'm also trying to limit these to sets that I would genuinely like to complete.

1996 Fleer Chicago White Sox (80.0% complete)


Even though this set fits the requirements of the page, it's not one I'm really chasing. Somewhere in my youth I received 2 packs of the White Sox team set, and those two packs were enough to get me most of the small 20 card set.
