Warren Spahn Purchase

Another eBay purchase arrived today for my 1953 Topps project: #147 Warren Spahn.  What makes this one even better is he's on a Boston Braves card.  Spahn is currently sixth on the all time wins list, and would probably be higher if he hadn't lost three years due to World War II.  I read somewhere that he was present when the Ludendorff Bridge collapsed towards the end of the war.  This one isn't slabbed, but it passed PSA's Quick Opinion service.
This brings me to 83/274 (30.29%) completion.  Also, it is the second of four Hall of Famers that I had wanted to add this year, and the first of two new  Boston Braves.
