The holiday weekend was a relaxing one here at Shoebox Legends world headquarters. In fact, I got into such a groove of relaxation that I didn't feel like posting here, or really thinking about cards even. I've worked up a bit of motivation now though, but not too much, so just a quick post tonight. It's actually my 31st birthday today, so we'll call these recent additions to my collection a birthday present to myself...
Joe's 1953 Topps card for my set, but he was with the White Sox by that point in his career. Here he's a member of the Red Sox, which was the reason for me buying the card. I just think these cards are so cool, especially now being 60+ years old. The 1949 Bowman and 1948-49 Leaf sets are usually credited as being the catalyst for the modern, full color baseball card sets collectors enjoy today.

Happy Birthday from me!
