1955 Topps in the Mail!

I recently picked this card up as part of a trade:

It may not look like much, but it it is. A Hall of Famer, a lifelong Tiger, a fan favorite and the card that finally reduced a wantlist number to a single digit.

Back in September, I shared some cards from my 1955 Topps set-in-progress here. This Kaline card now drops the wantlist to 9 cards left. One digit...that's a big deal. Of course, all the cards left are Hall of Famers and some will be long-term prospects at my normal price range (Koufax, Clemente, probably Mays and Robinson as well). That said, every additional hole that gets filled in my binder is a big deal.
