Here are a couple of recent acquisitions that should fit nicely in my 1952 set. 170-Gus Bell and high #318-Hal Gregg. If graded, they both should be solid 50-vg/ex with a tiny chance at 60-ex. For now, they will remain raw.

I normally like them a little better focused, but the bright color overwhelms his fuzzy face, cap and bat. Plus it's a definite upgrade over my first Bell which is o/c about 95/5.

I appreciate all the nice comments. I will keep it. Compared to the high number below it, the cost was like paying 6.5% sales tax on Gregg. Stupid highs, you just pay whatever to get almost anything. Bell made it a fun deal.

The only thing wrong with the Bell card was he was on the Pirates at the time instead of the Reds.
