Blowing it up!

My 2019 goals that is. Here you'll find all but 1 of the 1951 Topps Braves cards (technically 2).

The biggie of the lot.....Mr. Warren Spahn.

There is another version of this card where the line under names says Hartford instead of Reliable Boston Brave. I guess I want it too.

Those are the Red backs that i got, the other two missing cards are also red backs. #2 Sid Gordon, and 52B (Holmes).

The rest were Blue Backs.

Another big name.

Bob Elliott was the worse condition of the lot.

I picked these up off of E-bay from the same seller. He had the other two cards but they were higher than the Spahn, no way. I am happy knocking these vintage Braves out. Now I'll have to get them again when I build that complete set or may not.


  1. W-O-W! Talk about making a giant dent in one fell swoop. Congrats on landing these beauties from Topps' often overlooked first effort!

  2. That Spahn is a beaut! He looks so young there.
