Slowly Whittling Down The 1971 Topps

I went to the Greenville card shop the other day and actually remembered to take my notebook with me.  I'm really glad I did, because I found a 1971 Topps card that I needed for my set:
This George Foster RC.  Foster was a pretty darn good player (and one of my first ever relic cards).  The 1977 NL MVP hit 348 home runs over his 18-year career.  He played from 1969 to 1986 for the Giants, Reds, Mets and White Sox.  Not a back rookie card for $4.00.  Slowly, I'm knocking this set down.  I hope to find a good many of the high numbers at the next card show, that is, if I have time to do any shopping.  I hope I'm busy that day selling stuff.
