Fourteen Percent .....

My 1952 Topps set is now 14% done !!!!!  (No I do not think I will complete this set)

Keeping with my collecting budget of the 52's, anything I can find for around $5 or less, I will try to snag it.

Here are my latest pick ups.....

Now poor ole Monty has seen better days.  But he is in a good home now, and is my first HOF'er from the set.

Everyone saw the movie The Natural.  Well, the first line on the back of Waitkus's card reads..

That element of Waikus's life was part of the Hobbs story in The Natural.

Now for the creme de la creme....

I have my first PSA graded 52.  Sid played 13 years with the NY Giants, Boston Braves, Milwaukee Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates.  He had BA .283 / 202 HR / 805 RBIs.  Made the 1948 and 49 NL All Star Teams, and placed 4th in NL MVP voting in 48.
