52 topps set complete
 
I just ( 7/4/18 ) completed my 1952 topps set, been collecting for longer than I can remember. I bought my first ones as a kid in 1953 , Im now in the inventory phase to make sure my books are correct. lots are PSA Graded , but not all. So ill start to grade the non graded ones, and keep on working the set, Im over 70 years old now, Lived in Chicago my whole life, I was at game 4, when My Cubs won the World series, and now my set is complete , Time for a beer... :-) :)

Jealous, how many 52's did you save? all series. I like so many know where my childhood cards are and there about 12-15 ft underground in a dump.

Congrats! I'm working on the set right now, including some of the autographed ones. I'm mjohnatgt on the set registry, so you can see some of my cards that I've uploaded on PSA's site.
Show some pictures of your stars, and your original collection!

With only 1 post, I assume Cap just wanted to share his story and nothing more?

I'd also really like to see some pics/scans if possible?

Great accomplishment nonetheless! :)

Looks like he has not even been back to the board ( at least signed in) to review all of his congratulatory comments.
