Just 2 Away From 10%......

I currently have 39 out of the 407 Topps 1952 set.

Here are my most recent purchases from this summer...

Card #121    Gus Niarhos   Red Sox  C
Card#199     George Zuverink   Indians  P   RC

Both were purchased at Sportlots Auctions.

Card #130    Sheldon Jones    Giants  P
Card #84      Vern Stephens    Red Sox  SS/3B
Card #120    Bob Chakales     Indians   P   RC
Card #112    Henry Majeski    Philadelphia A's   3B

These were purchased at my local monthly card show.

Just need 2 more to reach my 10% completion of the set.  
I really don't anticipate to complete this set,  but will purchase cards when I see a great deal.  
All the above cards were purchased on the average of $5 each.  

As you can see, they are not top condition.  I do have a few cards that have some paper loss.  Most of the time I will try and get the best condition for the price I'm willing to pay. 

The one card that will be hard to get, at the price I will pay, is the Mickey Mantle.
One just recently sold for $1.3 Million........
I do have a reprint 52 Mantle subbing in for now.  (not included in my total)

Keep On Collecting !!
