Hal W. Smith - 1956 Topps

Today's return is helping motivate me to send out a few more ttm requests.  Hal W. Smith signed his 1956 Topps in just 7 days.

I was surprised to do a quick directory scan on my collection and found out I have about 98 signed cards from the 1956 Topps set.  I've never really targeted as a set to collect, but send out cards to the better signers if I come across their cards for a reasonable price.  I may have to take a closer look and start sending out some more.

It's been a rough couple of weeks for ttm collectors.  Several great players and generous signers have passed away, including Virgil Trucks, Bob Turley and Gus Triandos.  They were all very kind to me when I sent them autograph requests.
