The November Project purchase #1: 5 '64 Topps cards

Remember I said in October that I would find a better way to spend $100?  Welcome to "The November Project".  As promised, here is purchase #1 towards my collecting goals.

Cards purchased (5):  '64 Topps # 430,434,470,491,553  (95 cards left to purchase)
Total Cost:  $8.11 + $2.50 shipping =$10.61 total ($89.39 left to spend)
How won:  5 separate buy it now auctions from same seller (finecollectibles33)

Outside of centering issues on a couple of the cards, the only real noticeable flaw is the upper right corner on the Jim Bouton card, which is dinged. 

The backs are clean and in good shape as well..

It was awesome to get one of the high numbers in great condition for just a couple of bucks. 

The shipper had these cards to me in 3 days as well, from New Mexico.  Great transaction all around, and I will say that the November project is off to a great start!!

Thanks for reading, Robert
