1952 Topps -- Card Gallery
 
1 Attachment(s)
I've always wanted to see what other collectors / set builders have out there player by player. This has become increasing difficult to accomplish in person these days. Let's try to post a different 1952 Topps card each day so that we can share / view examples of our graded and non-graded gems. I'll start today off with card #188 Clarence Podbeilan. Let's see your copy! Someone else can pick a different card to share tomorrow.

Nice idea.

But I don't have one...

Was hoping that each day we would focus on one card from the set and post each of our examples. Today woul be #188. Maybe that wasn't clear in my first post.

Seeing that Jansen #5 is out there...let's focus on that card tomorrow / Wednesday.

ocjack 01-12-2021 01:21 PM

So, today only post Podbeilan cards and only post Jansen's tomorrow? Sort of like "whose is bigger?" lol

Not exactly what I was thinking...more of an opportunity to see different examples, grades and variations of each card that are out there. Some of the beautiful commons in this set don't get enough attention in my opinion. But to answer your first question, yes one card from the set per day.

Neat idea Ethan, but the odds of rules being followed in threads like these usually end up as slim and none. Maybe if you went in order, 1-407, with a new card every 2nd day people would be in a better position to know in advance which card to post for those 2 days. Just a thought

LincolnVT 01-12-2021 02:37 PM

You may be right...takes a bit of attention to detail. That said, I have confidence that we can come through. :)

Guess I was too excited seeing a 52 thread. Fixed

campyfan39 01-12-2021 03:50 PM

Ha. I was about to post my 52 Campy then I saw the discussion.
IMO doing it in numerical order is the only hope but even then its almost like a whose got the best type deal.

And my OC copy. I had a hard time finding a centered one so I chose this one instead. (I might actually have 2 now as I think I upgraded this one but didn't take a scan?)

Nice cards folks! Seeing that someone already posted Jasen #5 earlier, let's see those tomorrow. After Jansen, we will try to follow whoever posts the "1952 Topps card of the day"...fun, right?

Tom S. 01-12-2021 06:30 PM

Ethan, here's mine.

I have a small cache of SGC graded 1952 Topps that I plan on cracking out sometime in the future, with the hopes of them crossing over for the PSA set that I recently started.

Not fun.....but, quite tedious.

We have tried this before with T206 commons (alphabetically) in the pre-WWII section. And it dragged out for months. People lost interest in it.

Net54 guys (for the most part) prefer the freedom to post what cards they have (or desire to). Dictating to them what to post "turns them off".

Anyhow, if you insist on doing this in some sort of numerical order, then break it down by Series (starting with #1 - 80). And following with the
subsequent 5 - Series.

The cards in each Series are randomly posted (number-wise). And, you update the list for each Series as the cards are posted. I did exactly this
for the T206 HOFer's and it worked like a charm....and, the participants really enjoyed this method.

Series #2......81 - 130

Series #3.....131 - 190

Series #4.....191 - 250

Series #5.....251 - 310

Series #6.....311 - 407

That's fair. Let's start with # 1 Pafko tomorrow and work our way through the set one card / # per day. Show em if you've got em!

Sounds like fun. I completed my set a long time ago so I haven't looked at most of the cards in quite a while. My set is probably G to VG. Here's my Podbielan. Some creases and not great centering.

Like the previous poster, I haven't seen Bud in quite a while. Some rough corners but he looks pretty good.

1952 Topps # 1
 
So, the suggestion was made yesterday that we post our cards in numeric order in an effort to simplify things. This will also allow people to know what card will be posted the following day. So today will be #1 Pafko...tomorrow will be card #2 Runnels...so on and so forth. Great cards so far...thanks for sharing!

I forgot to add, no cards should be shown that grade better than EX condition...they make my set look terrible. JUST KIDDING! Beautiful cards Bob!

Yours has top left and right corner pulls as well. It surprises me how many 52 have these.

I'm jealous of the centering on those Lenhardts, guys. Here's my red back.

One of my Lenhardts has decent centering, the other not so much.

The cards aren't great but I always liked that Red Sox logo.
