Received a couple of returns over the past couple of days.

First, Milt Bolling, former Red Sox SS. Signed 2/2 (2 53 Topps Archives).


Next, Elroy Face, former Pirates P. Signed 2/3 (53 Topps Archive and 54 Topps Archive) and returned the last card rather than keeping it.


Next, Grady Hatton, former Reds 2B. Signed 2/2 (53 Topps Archive & index card)


Next, former Cubs/Braves SS Roy Smalley. Signed 2/2 (53 Topps Archive and 54 Topps Archive) and added another card of his own


Finally, former Browns P Virgil Trucks. Signed 2/2 (53 Topps Archives) and than included two more of his own.


Thanks for looking.

I did pick a few of these up in trades, but most came by TTM.I hope this helps you, some that i know are deceased,I marked as such.
Thanks everyone.

Jeb -- couldn't agree with you more, both the 53's and 54's look great signed. Impressive list of returns that you have received. I am sending to just about everyone on that list, only requirement is that I have at least one of their cards.
