Joy of a Completed Team Set

I finally knocked off the last card I needed for this set late last year. I knocked out Bill Bruton at the card show a couple months earlier but couldn't track down Joe Adcock. Finally I had the bright idea to check the local shop's Vintage case and there was Joe for a mere ten smackers. A completed team set from the '50s and all it cost me was a Hamilton. For the last card at least... Thank goodness Bowman wasn't able to get Hank that year. It took forever to finally post it because it took forever for me to scan all the cards. Enjoy...

Good-looking team set. Congrats on your achievement.

That is one team set I myself will never finish. Maybe if I win the lottery I can finish it. One of those 89 Bowman Williams promotion things will have to suffice.
