I was having a little bit of a rough day, nothing major just a long day and I was pretty tired. I grabbed the mail and went into the house and saw a bubble mailer. I couldn't remember what I had pending so I was pleasantly surprised and had a quick change in mood when this slid out in a top loader:
Outside of this 1952 set, I am making good progress on my Topps run. Outside of the different variations, here is a list of what I need:
1951 Topps Red Backs #21 Larry Jansen
1951 Topps Red Backs #32 Henry Thompson
1951 Topps Red Backs #41 Whitey Lockman
1951 Topps Red Backs #48 Eddie Stanky
1951 Topps Red Backs #50 Monte Irvin RC
1953 Topps #151 Hoyt Wilhelm
1953 Topps #244 Willie Mays
1953 Topps #260 Sam Calderone RC
1954 Topps #90 Willie Mays
1954 Topps #220 Ruben Gomez RC
1955 Topps #194 Willie Mays
1956 Topps #130 Willie Mays
The Willie Mays cards are going to be the obstacle but I pretty sure the rest are within reach. I didn't set this as a 2015 goal but it is in the early running for a 2016 goal.
It sure is nice when one small piece of cardboard can turn the day around.
