Nice p/u Irv....more good progress for you on this set.

I recently grabbed these 3 'bums" in my quest to complete this beast of a set. I am down to 25 to go, all high numbers....the last 25 are pretty much the toughest that could remain....I still have 3 more tough "bums" to get. I did not count to see how many more Dodger cards I am still needing, but it appears a majority of the Dodger cards were in the last series of this set. Too bad this high percent of placement of NY cards in the last series did not help Topps sell more cards.

Those are great looking cards again, SFMS.

And only 25 to go!

Curious, are you aware of this site/link? It is full of great info and gets updated frequently.

Good luck with the remaining 25.

Very nice 5 Seaver. That will likely be the range I go for when I can afford one. Which I suppose I need to start saving since I've decided I'm going after the '67 set...

Picked up this strong mid-grade HOF for my 52 Bowman set. I've always loved this card...including the arrow painted on the fence in the background is a great design element. This card makes me happy.

Thank you guys...Irv, thank you for the link, pretty neat site. If all of the HOFers that could have been included in this set if it were not for their contracts with Bowman, this set would have been a much, much tougher set to complete.

It sure would have but I still wish those players like, Williams, Musial and Paige, to name a few, were still in it. I know it's a very popular set already, but adding those players would have made extra special, imo.

Congrats, nice card. I had a copy of that as a kid (late 80's, early 90's) that I picked up for relatively cheap at the time ($20 or so) at a show. When I got home I noticed it had "1952" typed on the back. LOL, my first lesson in inspecting carefully before I buy. Oh well, it bothered me for about 5 minutes and then I loved the card anyway.
