Nice crisp looking pickups Irv...how are you looking on your 52s these days?

Picked up these 3 the other night in PWCC's auction....almost to 90%.

FWIW, the 349 card was thankfully sans the hair in the listing's image upon arrival.

NOW, I'm missing only the last card in the 1953 Topps set, #280- MILT BOLLING.

Incredible! 1953 was a year with two unbelievably beautiful sets in Topps and Bowman. What an achievement to close in on the Topps set!

It's cool how that one card shows a stadium ad for Topps. I wonder if that was real or just a nice add-in buy the artist.

As a kid listening to Scully call the Dodgers on KABC in 1979, you would have thought Manny Mota was a cross between Ty Cobb and Father Time. Listening to his record-breaking pinch-hit was one of the biggest highlights of my early fandom.

I was crashing at a friend's place who mentioned he still had an old shoebox of cards from back in the day. I came across the Mota, and he was happy to give it to me.

Next to it is a French trade card from around 1910. Some of you know I also collect Isaac Newton. This isn't Newton but I stumbled across it in a Newton search and just found it too stunning to pass up. So many cards back then were works of art. A couple pickups I saw posted here reminded me that 1953 Topps had a similar artistic quality.

Nice cards, SFMS!

Glad to read you are real close to finishing off your set. I can only dream.

I have slowed down considerably since last November when I purchased a new car for my wife.
With Christmas, plus a new side door and other renos, and other everyday expenses, my disposable income has pretty much been disposed of!

I still watch/look for bargains occasionally but those are few and far between nowadays.

Hopefully, once things are finished up around here, I can start banking some money again and be able to continue on, but I don't think, at this point, that it will be anything like it was last year.

Good luck finishing your set. I will be watching/looking for your new additions.
