I added three 1962 Topps cards that I needed.
I was finally able to add Ray Renfro's 1962 Topps base card to the Topps Buck of the same year. Gotta love that grin and hair!
Bob Gain played his entire 12 year career with the Browns, making the Pro Bowl five times. This is the sixth Bob Gain card in my collection, which covers all of the Topps, Fleer and Post Cereal cards during his playing career.
This is the only Browns card for Howard "Hopalong" Cassady, who played in 5 games with the Browns after being traded to them from the Lions just before the 1962 season. He had 7 punt returns and 10 kickoff returns for the team in those games. I don't know who is in the action photo - Cassady wore 40 with the Browns, as he did with the Lions. (If that is a Browns player with the ball, and it is number 10, before 1962 the number was only worn once by a Browns player, in 1957 by quarterback John Borten.)
The next card that I ordered from COMC was actually a double. I don't know why I thought I needed it, but as it turns out the one that I received is in better condition than the one I already owned so I'm not going to complain or worry about it.

Next, I added another 1977 Topps Mexican card to my collection. With this card, I now have half of the 24 Cafes cards.
Steve Holden played 48 games over four years with the Browns (1973-76), before finishing his career with 6 games for the Bengals in 1977. His best season was in 1974 when he caught 30 passes for 452 yards and 3 touchdowns.
I actually had bought the last two cards well before the sale and they were sitting in my account waiting to be shipped.
The next few posts will show other additions from my COMC order.
