  1. Lots of cool cards in this post. Hard to go against his 75T rookie card. But the 81D combo card with Carew is pretty cool too. I either pulled or traded for that card when I was a kid.

    1. That is a cool card. I sometimes inadvertently overlook the landscape oriented cards.

  2. I interviewed the photographer who shot the Brett/Perry card - you can read the backstory behind it here: https://borosny.blogspot.com/2010/12/interview-with-longtime-fleer.html

Luis Aparicio

Luis Aparicio was known for his speed and fielding. He led the American League in stolen bases a (still) record nine straight seasons, and racked up nine Gold Glove Awards over the span of his career. The White Sox were well served by shortstops for quite a stretch of time. HoFer Luke Appling held the spot from 1930-1950, then Aparicio manned the position from 1956-1962, then again from 1968-1970. Between 1950 and 1955, the position was well served by four time All-Star Chico Carrasquel. Top row: 69 Topps; 72 Topps; and a 72 Topps IA. Middle row: 73 APBA game card; Newspaper clipping of early 70's all-star game starters; and a 73 Topps. Bottom row: 74 Topps; 77 TCMA/Galasso; and an 87 Baseball Immortals (SSPC HoF) card. Second sheet, top row: 2001 Fleer Greats of the Game; 2002 Topps Reprint of 1960 Topps; and a 2005 Upper Deck Legendary Cuts (why did UD have to print landscape cards with an opposite orientation from almost every other card manufacturer? Grrr.

Richie Ashburn

Richie Ashburn accumulated 2,574 hits with a lifetime batting average of .308 and an on-base percentage of .396 in his 15 year career. With only 29 home runs, he was a true "spray hitter." Ashburn accumulated the most hits (1,875) of any batter during the 1950s. He appears to be well regarded as a center fielder. There are two funny stories I learned of Ashburn from Baseball-Reference. The first: "During an August 17, 1957 game Ashburn hit a foul ball into the stands that struck spectator Alice Roth, wife of Philadelphia Bulletin sports editor Earl Roth, breaking her nose. When play resumed Ashburn fouled off another ball that struck her while she was being carried off in a stretcher. Ashburn and Mrs. Roth maintained a friendship for many years, and the Roths' son later served as a Phillies batboy." The second: "One oft-told story is that on short flies to center or left-center, center fielder Ashburn would collide with shortstop Elio Chacón. Chac

Ballplayers Turned Announcers, Actors, Writers, Etc.

  We all know of ballplayers that become announcers, actors, or writers. This post shows cards for a few notable examples, as well as a few other players with occupations that you may not be aware of. Announcers 1952 Topps card #227. Not only was Joe Garagiola a catcher for parts of nine season with four clubs, but he was also an announcer, writer, and host of numerous television shows. Joe was honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame with the Ford C. Frick Award for outstanding broadcasting accomplishments and he was named as the 2014 recipient of the Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement Award, presented once every three years by the Baseball Hall of Fame for positive contributions to Major League Baseball.     1965 Topps card #65. Tony Kubek played for the Yankees for nine seasons, winning the 1957 Rookie of the Year award and selected to three All-Star games. Kubek played in six World Series in the late 1950s and early 1960s, starting in 37 World Series games. Upon his retirement, Kubek
