2011 In Review Part III: 1953

Had a little better luck with 1953 this year, to put it mildly.


This was a pretty recent pickup. Tape marks on the corners, but those are really sharp corners, and the rest of the card's gorgeous. No creases, good color, amazing. I feel like I'm cheating by owning this, it looks so good.


Got this awesome Clem...


...and Dick here as a two-for-one deal.


This card of "Shotgun" is just awesome. Even cooler to think that I've met the guy who painted it and the guy who's on the card.

Some other stuff from this time period that you've already seen, most likely:

53 Topps Don Hoak

53 Topps John Rutherford and 53 Bowman Color Carl Furillo

Next up, '54!
