Lots of great stuff, but the 54 Ted is my personal fave.

Here are some random pickups:

Haha, yeah, unfortunately I'm STILL learning that lesson. I picked up a raw 52 Bowman Larry Doby for a good price at a card show last year, and I even checked the back. However, the lighting was pretty dim at that booth, and after getting the card outside in the sunlight, it clearly had been signed by "Kevin" lightly in pencil

But there's so many cards out there I'd like to own, that upgrading a card I already own keeps getting knocked down the priority list.

Knocked the second to last high number needed for my 1967 set off of my list. Sure, the centering is off (just like 99% of the cards that year), but it looks like it just came out of the pack, so I'm happy with it. I probably paid much more than I should have for a card with a qualifier, but since my ebay bucks knocked the price way down, I got it for around 20 bucks.

On a side note, I've needed this card for so long that something laughable came to mind. In the early days of the internet at the beginning of this new century, I used to post my want lists on various collecting sites and they would always be rejected for 'inappropriate language.' Ha ha! When I did further research, I discovered that the bad word causing all of the fuss was simply the second syllable of Joe's last name. That's it! So I changed his name to "Adc*ck," and then my posts were readily accepted. Very funny to remember those funny days of yesteryear.

And I thought it was just me! Thanks. Look at the Colavito I posted earlier today...I really never realized the centering issues the '67 set had before deciding to go after it.
