1952 Bowman Project: Casey Stengel

Not only did the Lovely Wife give me a supremely nice couple of cards to kick off my 1952 Bowman project for Christmas, she also gave me a sizeable gift card to Cleve's.  What a woman!

I decided to start whittling away at the gift card, and my 1952 set this week and bought another great card:

This Casey Stengel card is magnificent! In fact,  I might take this card out of the holder and make a hi res scan of it that I can print out 8x10 size and frame.  I might do the same with the Bob Feller  & Duke Snider cards my wife bought.  Those would look awesome in a frame on the wall wouldn't they?

So my 1952 Bowman project is off to a very strong start.  If I can find a nice lot of commons that are in good shape (so far all of my cards have been what I think are EX+ condition so I'll stay on that path), then I'm set!

That is an awesome card. I will trade you a Rance Mulliniks RC for it. Just mull it over.

I have two Ron Santo 8x10 scans hanging on my wall, 1961 and 1963 Topps. I love them.
