Let's be Frank, 500 feels good

 I teased the other day that I had hit the 500 card mark for the '59 Topps set build.  I have as the card came this past Friday in the mail, very quickly I might add.

Not in great shape, but still decent enough in both condition and price for me to add it to the set build.

I found it a week ago Friday on ebay listed at 19.99.  I had other cards from the '59 set in the cart already to purchase and I wasn't sold on this one quite yet.  I put it on my watch list.

The next morning I woke up to an email from the seller with a 10% discount.  Someone I guess was trying to tell me something.  I snapped up the card and within 4 business days the card was in my mailbox!

72 cards to go to finish the set.  3 of them are on their way.  The light at the end of the proverbial tunnel is starting to get a little brighter.

Enjoy the hobby!!
