just for the heck of it, here are some 1952 cards i picked up at a show sometime last year. at least i think that's where they came from. pretty sure. there's a show this weekend, and i am hoping to get a couple of key 1950's cards. i'm a bit at a loss, as i recently completed my 1960's dodger topps team sets. i could always look for upgrades, i suppose, but i think i want to let the accomplishment settle first.
anyway, i have a long way to go to complete the dodgers from the 1950's, and i don't plan to really ever get there. but, i do own these four cards, among others. this one is a 1952 bowman ralph branca
it works better on the 1952 topps cards, however, thanks to the little box. here's a backlit johnny schmitz card
when i first moved to minnesota, twig was a coach for the saint paul saints - the local independent league minor league team. he moved on to other coaching jobs, but i think he is retired now. i've thought about enhancing his 1952 topps card with a genuine autograph, but haven't ever pursued it.
so, i'll be diggin in at the vintage bargain bins tomorrow, looking for some friends of branca, dressen, schmitz, and twig. anybody need anything?
