1955 Topps Milwaukee Braves Team Set
I've been getting a bunch of 1955 Topps cards in the mail lately, and have just closed in on 200 cards out of the 206 card set. I'm actually still waiting on 4 more cards to arrive, so technically, I sitting at 196 cards. Today, I received a Chuck Tanner #161 card to complete the Braves team set. With only 6 cards left to go, I still don't expect to complete this set anytime soon. I can see myself adding 4 more cards to the collection soon for a total of 204 cards, but completing the last 2 cards in the set is probably going to take a while. I don't think that I've ever spent more than $100 for a single card before. Acquiring the Roberto Clemente and Sandy Koufax rookie cards is definitely going to break a spending record for me, and 1955 is not yet a priority. I've been missing 3 cards from the 1954 Topps set for a couple of years now because of the Willie Mays, Ernie Banks, and Al Kaline rookie cards. Here's my Braves team set pulled straight out of the binder starting with Warren Spahn, and ending with Joe Jay.
