In April, I said I would feature one 1956 Topps card a month from my collection in hopes that by the time I finished the series, I would have the whole set.
Well, I featured the first one of Vic Power and got into his very interesting story. Then May came and went, and I completely forgot to show a '56 card.
One card into the series and I've failed already.
But, looking at it positively, if I take little "unintended" breaks in the series, that will give me more time to hunt down the '56s I need. I still need more than half the set and a ton of the stars.
So, I knew there was a reason I skipped May. It was a stalling tactic.
Anyway, to get back on track, I am featuring Frank Thomas this time.
I know what some of you are thinking: You know Frank Thomas. Frank Thomas is a friend of yours. This is no Frank Thomas.
True, this Frank Thomas is not the Frank Thomas that you know from the 1990s "Big Hurt" days.
