Thank you Ted! I know at least one of each that I'm missing exists, per the PSA/DNA pop report, but there are four I personally haven't seen (Norman, Fusselman, Bickford and Fox). I've seen Bickfords and Foxes from other years, so at least they were good signers. Dressen pops up every now and then, as does Fannin. Throneberry, I saw two a couple months apart in 2016, none before or since. I picked up both of them; the one I posted and the other I traded the other to another board member.

Well I'll tell ya


Back in the day when I was scouring the counter for signed cards for OTHER people's lists, that had signed 52s to trade, the bill norman was on all the 53 topps lists. You say there is at least one in the pop report?


He will be tough being in the high series and a coach. However, it appears he did at least hang around baseball until his passing in 62. There is a glimmer of hope

Yep, there's one each of Norman and Fusselman, and two each of Bickford and Fox. With all four of them hanging around the game for at least a couple of years after 1953, I think there are more out there that have been buried in collections (or by now, estates) for the past 50-60 years.

Seems like fox was the prolific signer of the bunch! I've had 3 or 4 signed 52s, with only ever seeing one bickford and no fusselmans, though one is graded in the pops.


Hope!

I'm surprised at how few items are triggering my radar with such a large assemblage.

--What an absolutely odd vintage Mays, yet there are some unmistakable individual letter formations, especially the "Wishes".

--I have never seen a Bob Hooper that remotely resembles yours. Nor have I seen a Hooper in blue Sharpie. The fact that it's personalized is the real head scratcher. I'd definitely be looking for another one, but it won't be an easy acquisition.

The Mays, from looking at a couple of contracts in the PSA/DNA database, looks to be from the early 1960s. The Hooper, I'm not enamored with, but I can live with it for now. Blue Sharpies came out in 1979 and he died in March 1980, so done very late in life.

Just an amazing and impressive collection. The Rizzuto and Elroy Face are two of my favorites you've got.

I did notice you have Don Hoak in there twice. Once is in place of card 169 (Dizzy Trout).

Thank you Jarrod! The Face was one of the first ones I picked up; I wrote to him in November 2014. Writing to the players was one of my favorite parts of building the set. According to my records, I received responses from 44 players; the only living one I never wrote to was Willie Mays.

D'oh! Thanks for pointing that out.
