1958 Topps - Alex Kellner

I added another 1958 Topps to my set collection.  I purchased an Alex Kellner card from Mickey's.  It was a decent price, not much more than the price of getting it authenticated.  It's been a while since I've added a card to this set so I was looking for something to buy that would keep this collection moving.


This makes 361 signed cards from this set, out of 494 cards.  I think there are only two cards left of living players: Willie Mays and Sandy Koufax.  I've had the opportunity to send in a card for a Mays signing but haven't been willing to pay the $250+ he asks for.  I'll keep my eyes open for a card already authenticated.  I've seen his signature isn't looking too card lately either.

We're pretty well set for TwinsFest.  Our binders are all organized and I've laid out the balls, bobbleheads and bats we plan to take.  Anyone else going?

Is Mays currently doing a signing? I'm a sucker who would pay his asking price :(

Kyle,

I don't see any upcoming signings for Mays. Sorry.
