Grolier Life in America Cards

Are these Grolier Life in America readily available in bulk?  I wouldn't mind getting the entire set of 2,600 cards if they can be had for a low price.  Why?  I would enjoy reading them and I like the photos and design.

These cards are quite similar to Sportscaster cards.  I need to do some research to see how many track and field cards are in the set.  If the set is too much money, I certainly plan to get the track and field cards.

If you have any information on these cards please let me know.

Great Site for Track and Field Card Checklists

Here is another great site for track and field checklists.  I like how they detail which cards in a multi-sport set are track and field cards.

I don't know how active the site is so I sent them an e-mail about finding a checklist for foreign Sportscaster cards.   I hope to at least get a checklist of all of the track and field athletes featured in the other Sportscaster sets.  There are plenty of cards in those sets that don't exist in the North American version of Sportscaster cards.

The site categorizes the sets in alphabetical order.

I have a bunch of track and field cards that I don't know much about so I will hopefully learn more about this using this site.

Swedish Sportscaster Cards - I Now Have a Few Duplicates to Trade

I'm up to 171 different Swedish Sportscaster cards, all track and field.  I still have no idea about a checklist.  Has anyone found out anything about that?

I've also now got eight duplicates shown in the picture.  They are not perfect but they look good.

I'd be willing to trade these for cards that I need from this set.  

I have lots of doubles from the Finland version of these cards.  Unfortunately I don't have baseball, football, basketball and hockey cards because most people seem to sell those separately and then dump the other stuff in a lot.  That's good for me getting track and field cards but if I want complete sets that is a challenge.
