    Can't help with your final 6, but that is one fine set. Hard to find all 48 autographed, I imagine. Good luck.

    Always looking for Mantle cards such as Stahl Meyer, 1954 Dan Dee, 1959 Bazooka, 1960 Post, 1952 Star Cal Decal, 1952 Tip Top Bread Labels, 1953-54 Briggs Meat, and other Topps, Bowman, and oddball Mantles.

    Thank you! I've landed the two toughest in the set...just need to find the rest!

    What a great accomplishment so far! Can't wait for you to eventually show us the other 6.
    STAY HEALTHY!

    It was tough having to sell almost my entire collection of ~1,700 PSA graded cards from the 1910s - 1970's and my ~250 - 300 Graded Packs from the 50s, 60s and 70s. But when your daughter AND your wife are diagnosed with Cancer, sometimes you don't have a choice. One day I'll get some of them back!

    That is impressive, I truly have an appreciation for the time and patience it must have taken to get this far. If you don't mind sharing, how long have you been working on this set? Amazing example of a
    true hobbyist. Congrats!

    Thanks for the kind words! This project started about 2 years ago I'd guess with the purchase of the 48B Berra RC. When I got it, I really fell in love with the set and started picking up a few here and there. Hasn't been the cheapest of projects, but probably my favorite. The 48B set, while plain, is one of the more iconic sets I think. I was also working on the 63T set at the same time. I had 425+ of the 576 in the set but ended up breaking up that set to focus on other things.

    Haha...it was probably either me or another guy thats been working the set. He's overpayed for quite a few in the set and in the process, caused others to do the same. If you have any of those 3 for sale, please let me know!

    Thanks,
    James

    WOW James ... One post about your awesome set and you may be able to pick up half of the cards that you need from one guy! Hope you guys can work out a deal that makes you both happy.
    STAY HEALTHY!
