a nice way to close out 2014 - 60 year old cardboard completed!

i very seriously doubt that i will complete the 1955 topps dodger team set in 2015, but that is the only set that stands between me and having a complete run of topps flagship dodger team sets from 1954 through 2014 (minus a few short print photo variations from 2014).  that's because i recently picked up the last card i needed for the 1954 team set - this jackie robinson card.
it's a beauty.

jim hughes
and ben wade
were the other dodgers i picked up for the team set this past year.

i've got my eye on a 1953 topps jackie robinson card for 2015 - it's the only jackie topps card i don't have - although i am more certain about not being able to complete the '53 team set than i am about the '55 set.  but then again, i never thought i would get this far either.

Very impressive. I'm working on a run of Giants sets, but it'll be hard with all those Mays cards.
