Ralph Kiner

The last signed 1953 Topps I have that I haven't already uploaded is #191 Ralph Kiner.  As the inscription indicates, Kiner lead the league in home runs 7 times and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1975.  The back of the card says that he is "rated the best chance of breaking Babe Ruth's home run record."  It also mentions that the prior year he had back troubles; those troubles would end his major league career at 32.  I'm currently bidding on two more signed 1953 Topps cards.  If I win them, I'll be sure to post them up here soon.
