Yep, I LOVE the set!! A friend of mine is 20 years my senior. He's building it because it is the year he was born. Like someone said earlier, it is Americana. When I think of vintage baseball cards, I think of 53 Topps. There are a few cards here or there in the set I might upgrade but, overall, I am pretty happy.

Here's a few graded ones...does anyone think the Mantle is a crossover candidate? It doesn't have any creases. Too much corner wear for regrade? Thoughts?? If nothing else, it is a very solid and presentable 4.
I'd keep that mantle as is that's a great looking 4. Most be corner wear. I have a 5 that's not any better than that IMO although I can't see the corners up close. Overall appearance is just as good is what I'm getting at I guess. Nice stuff man!
