New Quest-A tribute

Doing some trading on diamond giveaway yesterday got me to thinking.  I haven't put together a set in a long, long time.  Had some offers of 1969 cards on there.  I like the look of the set.  As I thought more about it, I researched the set and there are some toughies in there!  The Reggie Jackson rookie and Year 2 Nolan Ryan.  However, 1969 has a special meaning to me.  I wasn't even born until 1979 but my brother was born in '69.  He passed away last year.  He never really got into cards.  I think if I put this set together it would be a nice tribute to his memory and it would help keep in my thoughts when I'm working on my hobby.  I'm gonna do it all by trade, not gonna spend a dime.  Thats my quest- Complete the 1969 Topps Baseball Set completely by trade- no $$ spent.  Gonna be a tough one but lets give it a twirl.  Starting out I have 0 Cards except for the two I traded for on the diamond giveaway.  If you have any 69's you can part with and would be willing to trade for team lots of your favorite squad, please shoot me a PM or message and help me with this project.  God Bless
