I find Billy Martin is about as tough to find as Pete Reiser with these mysterious gray backs.

I need 28 more of these gray backs to complete my 1952 TOPPS master set.

There was an individual at the national, walking the floor (not set up) with a 7 and an 8 gray back Martin or was it a 6 and 7 either way they were nice cards.

During the 1980's, when I completed my basic 407-card 1952 TOPPS (52T) set, I searched for these "mysterious" mid-series gray backs.
Back then, they were selling for the price of a common 52T low # card. Billy Martin was about $75. And, since I was a Billy Martin fan, I
acquired 2 of his gray backs.
In recent years, I was offered "big bucks" for these cards. I sold the lower condition card, and kept the Martin shown here.

I just wanted to wish good luck to everyone bidding on the auction tonight. I know how exciting it can be when a tough, coveted card comes up for sale. Some day I hope to collect the gray backs, but until then I'll be staying out of this one. I just really hope the card finds its way into someone's master set, so they can be that much closer to completion!

The "winner" of Dean's $40k offering of this GB card is also bidding on this one....is this bidder trying to corner the Reiser GB market or did the deal with Dean's "fall through"?

See that was something I was unclear about. I thought the Dean's card subsequently was relisted, like there was an error or something with that original BIN.
