Billy Loes, Paul LaPalme, Gene Hermanski and Johnny Klippstein Purchases
I filled four more holes in the 1953 Topps set today, with #46 Johnny Klippstein, #174 Billy Loes, #179 Gene Hermanski and #201 Paul LaPalme. Hermanski was a member of the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers, and is featured somewhat prominently in the movie 42. Loes was a member of the 1955 Dodgers, and became well known for saying that he didn't want to be a 20-game winner because "Then I'd be expected to do it every year".
These four bring me to 82/274 (29.92 %) of the way there. I have a couple others in transit that I've ordered, and a few requests out that hopefully will trickle in sometime soon.
