Johnny Lipon

Still waiting on my first return of 2015, but a purchase arrived today: #40 Johnny Lipon, the shortstop who replaced Johnny Pesky.  He was traded to Boston midway through the 1952 season, along with George Kell, Dizzy Trout and Hoot Evers for Pesky, Walt Dropo, Fred Hatfield, Don Lenhardt, and Bill Wight.
I currently have 68 of the 274 cards signed and on hand right now, with two more I ordered in the mail.  I may order a few more before heading back to school later this month.  I wanted to add two more Red Sox to the set at some point this year, so he is the first of that.
