Agreed with Brian. This is a fantastic card--great color, centering that isn't annoying, and great shape. Congratulations! I've had the privilege of owning two (still own one). It felt fantastic getting them and checking them off the list. It also felt great selling one of them in the inflated market we experienced last year 🙂 Although some days I still wish I had that card...

Thanks Brian, Chris and everyone. Chris you are exactly right when you say it is a "privilege" to own one. Spot on.

I guess I finally have something to post in this thread. I actually forgot this thread was here! I picked this up in late July.

Picked this up in Cleveland and really like the centering on it - hard to find 57s with decent centering.

David, John and KC,

Beautiful cards. Agreed that centering in the 57 is tough. You got a real stunner.

I've been back collecting for about 7 years and am not ashamed to admit that I generally swim in the shallow end of the hobby pool. I've mainly been building the Topps 1970s sets, with some diversions into the 1960-63 Fleers and a few oddball modern sets.

When I first started collecting I picked up a few 1956 Topps cards because I thought they were cool looking. In the intervening time, I continued to pick some 56s up here and there. Additionally, I won a 1938 Goudey Jimmie Foxx in a contest that I turned into 56 Clemente and Robinson. Last year, I realized that I had over half the set and I should probably just work it to completion.

This year, I went to the National show needing only 21 cards to complete the set, including Mantle and Koufax. I managed to get 17 of the 21 I needed, including this:



I never considered that I would be able to finish this set, but I am a mere 4 cards away. I am way more excited about it than a 52 year old man has the right to feel.
