51B Slow Countdown

     This isn't going to be a quick countdown where you'll need to hold your breath on or risk missing. The reason I'm calling this a countdown is because I'm now at 301 out of 324 cards to complete this set. This means I only need 23 cards, which I fully expect to complete all but 2 of them. Except for #88 Eddie Robinson, the rest of the 22 missing cards are all high numbers. So with 23 missing cards, the next milestone will be to reach within 20 cards of completion. Here's my contribution to the latest 51B acquisition. Ken Johnson of the Philadelphia Phillies would have joined the team just in time for the Whiz Kids to reach the 1950 World Series against a steamrolling Yankees team that was on their way to 5 consecutive.
