I'm going to try and pay more attention to baseball since the NBA regular season will likely start just before, or during the World Series.
Anyways, you aren't here to listen to my laments. So, let's move on, shall we?
A while back, I mentioned that I was getting close to finishing the 1956 Topps set and was potentially going to look for an affordable (!) Mickey Mantle when I am at The National in August. Since that time, I have not done much of anything hobby-wise in order to conserve money for that show. I did break down recently and bid on some 1956 commons on eBay and managed to snag 4 for about $20 delivered.
With these 4, I am now down to needing 22 cards to finish the set. Even though I am really close to finishing 1972 Topps also (40 cards left), I am going to focus on 1956 for the next few months and hopefully finish it before the end of the year.
