Phillies Completed Team Set -- 1955 Bowman!

This is one of my favorite sets. If I'm going to put the time in resources into a set this is high on the list of possibilities. I already have the Mantle but I know there are a couple other hard to get cards (besides the high numbers of course). I like the 'tv' look of these cards and think they have a perfect vintage look and feel to them.

Yes, I realize there are other cards in the scan. I just wanted to show all the cards together but I didn't feel like re-scanning them all again. The Hamner I got in a trade with your friend and mine Coot Veal and the Vealtones.

Overall very happy to knock this set off and the cards all look good. Currently, they are all stored in separate sleeves. In the near future I'm planning on investing in some 8 pocket pages to properly store these and the other slightly larger vintage sets. Does anyone have a better idea then 8 pocket pages? I just don't want to ruin any of the cards.

The next Phillies team set that I really need to go after is 1957 Topps. Anyone out there have any extras that you're willing to trade/sell?

Happy Friday! Sure to be a good day, getting free Rita's Water Ice (if you don't know what that is, look it up and try it!)

Thanks for reading!
