Card Sets Missing from my collection

As I've stated on here several times, I am primarily a base set collector. But I know that I will never be able to complete every set; aside from genuine rarity, I could not afford it. (some cards sell for more than we paid for our Jeep!) So, my goal is to have at least one card from every major set. I prefer a base card, but any card is fine- insert, parallel, promo, etc.
In my first go-round with the NBA, which lasted from 1996-2006, I accomplished the goal, or so I thought, but then they started doing the $500 a pack sets, and also I missed some without knowing they existed.

I was not able to do that for NASCAR, despite having less sets issued.

I have used the listings on the Trading Card Database to determine what is missing. I will begin with the NBA. Added 4/30/2016- underlines to separate the years.

Now I move to NASCAR. There are less sets issued and very few not represented in my collection.
  1. 2019 Prime
Since I began officially collecting the NHL in 2017, it has mostly taken over the hobby for me. Even so, there is a wide range of sets I'm still missing. I believe this is the correct list of the missing sets, although it is possible I have an insert out of some of them that I forgot to cross off my paper list. With the NHL getting cards since the 1920s, I know that getting the early days isn't too likely due to the cost of them, but I'm putting them on this chart anyway. There are MANY promo, International and lower level sets I would also love to add to my collection, but this list is major NHL releases only. Like the NBA, underlines denote year breaks.
  1. 1910-11 Imperial Tobacco
  2. 1911-12 Imperial Tobacco
  3. 1912-13 Imperial Tobacco  (Although the three Imperial tobacco sets predate the NHL, they were for the league the NHL spun out of and I would count them just the same)
  4. 1923-24 William Paterson
  5. 1924-25 Champ's Cigarettes

Star Wars. This may not be complete. It does not include the cartoon based cards. I have a hard time figuring out all the varieties of Widevision sets issued in the 1990s.
  1. 1996 Topps Star Wars 3Di Widevision
  2. 1996 Topps Shadows of the Empire
  3. 2005 Topps Revenge of the Sith Widevision
  4. 2006 Topps Evolution Update
  5. 2009 Topps Star Wars Galaxy 4
  6. 2015 Topps Star Wars Masterwork
DC Comics. Only actual comic based, no cartoon or movie issued. May not be complete, as I keep finding out about new sets. (new to me, anyway)

  1. 1966 Topps Superman
  2. 1996 Fleer/Skybox Batman Holo Series
  3. 2008 Rittenhouse Batman Archives
  4. 2009 Rittenhouse Justice League of America Archives
Automotive. Again, incomplete.
  1. 1911 American Tobacco Auto Drivers
  2. 1911 Turkey Red Automobile Series
  3. 1930 Wills Cigarette's Speed
  4. 1938 Wills Cigarette's Speed
  5. 1961 Topps Sports Cars (pending)
  6. 1970 Shell Racing Cars of the World
  7. Any others pre-1990 with the exception of 1922 Lambert & Butlers Motors Cars and 1975 John Player & Sons
Here are some Non-sports sets not in my collection that I would like them to be. This list is constantly changing as there is more I don't know about Non-sports than I do, especially the pre-1980s stuff.
  1. 1899  N72 Duke's Coins of All Nations
  2. 1933 Goudey Sea Raiders
  3. 1933 Goudey World War
  4. 1936 Goudey Auto License Plates
  5. 1936 Goudey History of Aviation
  6. 1937 Goudey Auto License Plates
  7. 1938 Goudey Auto License Plates
  8. 1939 Goudey Auto License Plates
  9. 1941 Goudey Sky Birds
  10. 1956 Topps US Presidents
  11. 1957 Topps Space Cards
  12. 1962 Topps Civil War News
  13. 1965 Topps Battle: The Story of WWII
  14. 1972 or 1976 Topps US Presidents (Issued in 1972, reissued and updated in 1976)
  15. 2014 Cult-Stuff Civil War

The Non-Sports fields will likely expand as I learn more about what is out there- I have almost no knowledge of the Tobacco Card era but pretty much every set I learn about would find a home in my collection. The NASCAR and NBA sections will hopefully shrink in time.

    1. I sure am Les. I got a couple of packs worth when the cards were new but I am missing at least triple what I have.

  2. Billy,
    If you can send me your address again through e-mail I will get those cards from the post going your direction. Sorry, but I'm really bad about keeping addresses. You'd think I'd be much better by now after blogging for three years, but a few have still slipped through the cracks.

  3. Hey Billy, I was looking at your non-sports collection on TCDB and was wondering if we could figure something out. I happen to have an abundance of 90's cards that include some oddball sets and or cards. Just looking at your collection I found 4 or more partials that I can fill up to full sets. Also Add several cards to your Wizard sets( I love those cards)./ I have a 95 Flair Marvel 4 card panel. And that is just the beginning. At least on set you do not mention is 93 World Famous San Diego Zoo Animals of the Wild. I have a full set extra. Also did not notice if you had or wanted 93 Starlog: Science Fiction Universe. If you are interested you can contact me on TCDB/Tom Standfill or my email Tstandfill@hotmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Tom
