Conceding that I'll never get a Mantle, I decided to avoid the SPs altogether,at least for a while, and concentrate on the first 280 cards of the 1952 Topps set.

After completing my 1953 Topps set earlier this year, I have concentrated on those 280. I picked up 5 more today off Ebay and am down to 37 cards.

I am continuing to chip away at my Topps run. 51 Blue Backs is down to nine cards and 52 is down to 22 cards. Still having trouble finding the 332 Bartirome at a decent price.
