Authenticated 1954 Topps Lot

Today I received six signed, authenticated 1954 Topps that I bought on eBay. For some reason this shipment was delayed. It was shipped from Colorado, when through a distribution center in New Jersey, then ended up here in Minnesota. Quite a trip.

I got a nice deal on these. Most for a dollar or two over the price of authenticating a card. Four of these players are deceased (Frank Smith, Mike Fornieles, Johnny Klippstein and Ray Boone).

Although I'm not actively collecting this set, I do have about 100 of these signed. It's one of my favorite card designs of all time, but since they already have a facsimile signature, they aren't ideal for getting autographed.
