I just overpaid for the last 3 cards I needed to sub-complete the 1954 Bowman set. What does that mean? Well, I now have 222 card out of 224 needed to complete the set. The 2 missing cards are #65 Mickey Mantle at $1500 and #66 Ted Williams at $3000. It'd be a freak accident if I ever obtained either of those cards, so as far as I'm concerned, this set is now complete. My 1954 Topps set is also in the same boat with only 1 missing card out of 250: #128 Hank Aaron RC at $1500. So, now both 1954 sets are actually sub-complete.

I've acquired so many 53T's lately that it's been truly unbelievable. I originally thought that reaching over 200 out of 274 total cards would be a significant accomplishment, but I've now reached 225 cards in this set. That leaves less than 49 missing cards to finish the set for an overall completion rate of over 82%. Here are the reprints that were replaced by my recent acquisitions over the past few months.
