The last few days brought some nice 1961 Topps cards into the collection. All in all, five deceased players (Early Wynn, Cam Carreon, Earl Torgeson, Al Smith and Bill Goodman) and a Luis Aparicio. I really wanted the Aparicio AS card, but that balloned up and went out of my league! I was pretty happy with the six I won though...
I also picked up a nice 87T Jerry Hairston and 73T Jorge Orta, and with the help of my buddy Mike, finally finished my 69T Sox Rookie Stars card with Carlos May. I had a 2/3 completed but never got it back TTM form Morales! Mike also helped me with a 70T and 74T May to replace a few fillers from the collection. Thanks Mike, great signing once again with Carlos!
With the Topps releasing the Topps Debut series, I think I will start trying to add that to my collection too. They are pretty sharp and if they stick with using the regular Topps design, I think it will be around for awhile. Hopefully a lot of these guys will be good TTMers!
