I picked up #10 Smokey Burgess off eBay for the 102nd addition to my 1953 Topps project. I'm now 37.23 % of the way there. Burgess was a Phillie at the time, which meets my new goal of 1 new Phillie by the end of the year. On the return side of the ledger, I talked myself in to picking up Carl Scheib's card from the 1949 Bowman set. He signed it for free at his home in a little over a week. He was card #25, and is the 10th signed '49 Bowman I have. Frank Lary signed his 1961 Topps card, #243 in about six months at his home in Alabama. Lastly, Steve Mura signed his 1979 Topps rookie card, #725, in about a week c/o home. He also included a signed custom card. The front of the custom is his 1983 Topps card and the back is a logo commemorating the Cardinals 1982 World Championship. I'm not sure if I'll complete the card; I haven't found a working address for Jim Beswick, and Broderick Perkins seems to be hit-or-miss, with very long wait times when he does sign. If anyone has had success with either of those two, let me know! I'd love to complete it.
