Still on the lookout for
9-9-12-12-45-55 (possibly 65-70-75; not trying to pair up 80-85-90-95 unless I stumble across something)
The set that is in progress began with the pick up of 20-20-25 via Facebook Marketplace in January 2022. I was hooked quickly and found several more locally over the next six months. Since July 2022, I have been trading and purchasing via Vintage Weightlifting Swap. I grabbed the heavies in an October 2022 local purchase. Since then, the pickings have been slim and I have been paying collector prices to fill in gaps.
It is a mix of Pre-USA, USA stamped, blues.
Thanks to Cholo Herrero, Ben Beaulieu, Bruce Victor, Joshua Kost, Michael Lumanog, Rob Ert and Jayson Basanes for all of your help.
