Sid Gordon Purchase

I was able to nab #117 Sid Gordon from another Net54 member for a very good price.  This is only the second Gordon I've seen (he died in 1975).  The other one sold for $125 about a year and a half ago.  Because of the crease and some minor paper loss on the back, I was able to get this for $60 plus shipping.

This makes 157/274 (57.29 %).  The only Boston Braves I still need are Vern Bickford and George Crowe.  Bickford is very rare (he died in 1960 from stomach cancer).  For someone who died in 2011, Crowe is surprisingly difficult.  I think I've seen signed copies of every Topps card he appeared on except the 1953 issue.
