Les Fusselman Purchase

I was able to pick off one of the most difficult cards in the set last week, #218 Les Fusselman. Fusselman was the Cardinals third-string catcher, so he wasn't very highly collected during his lifetime, and he died in 1970, so there wasn't a very large window for him to sign his card.  I was able to snag it for just under $100, and a more experienced collector told me this was probably a $500 card, so I'm happy about that.  On the back of the card, it mentions that Fusselman spent four years in the Army, seeing action in the Philippines and on Okinawa.
This brings me to 110/274 (40.15 %) signed.  I should have one or two more coming in shortly.
