Comments: For Kell, 1952 Topps was the first issue after I purchased a PSA 7 off eBay in February, 2002. I upgraded to a beautiful PSA 8 a year later after winning another eBay auction. I decided to stick with Eddie Mathews for the 1952 Topps issue so in August, 2007 I swapped out the '52 Kell PSA 8 for a 1950 Bowman PSA 7. I upgraded to this PSA 8 when I won an eBay auction from seller Craig Roehrig/Quality Cards.
