I have 15 out of 24 - only 9 left!

I picked this card up this week on eBay for less than $4, including shipping. I can now cross Frank Robinson off my list for a bat card of every member of the 500 Home Run Club. I purchased another card this week that will bring me another card closer to completing my goal, but I'll save that for another post, after I actually have the card in hand. After I get that card I will only need 8 cards. I have been tracking bat cards of everyone remaining on my list. The Ruth card will probably be the mnost expensive, but I think McGwire will be right up there, just because he doesn't have many bat cards out there. All the other ones including Hank Aaron, Ted Williams, Harmon Killabrew, and Jimmie Foxx can be purchased for resonable prices. The others can be found for less than $5 each, it's just a matter of finding the right card.
