    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.

    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

    The biggest lesson I've learned in this hobby, and in life, is that if you have a strong conviction, you owe it to yourself to see it through. Don't sell yourself, or your investments, short. Unless the facts change. Then sell it all.
