Fiery ballplayer and the middle cog in the "T to E to C" combo.

Addie had a 1.88 ERA after 9 major league seasons, but he died from TB suddenly during Spring Training in 1911.

Meyers'' biggest regret was not finishing his college education at Dartmouth. His chapter has some great stories about Matty, McGraw and Jim Thorpe.

White cap version of "Big Six". With white and black caps, Matty could be a good guy or a bad guy!

Great chapter about playing with Cobb and Germany Schaefer''s stealing first base!

Fred excelled as a player, .312 lifetime BA, and as a manager, skippering the Pirates to 3 straight pennants.

Fascinating chapter. Fred talks about the Giants, McGraw, his own crucial error in the 1912 World Series and the Merkle boner.

Great hitter and popular player-manager. His Cleveland team was called "The Naps".

Great pose of popular in Cleveland that the team was nicknamed "The Naps". Career BA of .338.

Roger is credited by some as the creator of catcher shin guards. Roger caught Christy Mathewson for many years

Rube won 73 games from 1911 to 1913 and teamed with Christy Mathewson to form a potent lefty-righty combo for NY Giants.

Old "Wahoo Sam" valued triples more than homers. More exciting, he said, to watch a guy go for three.

Vic was a real iron man...finishing 82% of his starts.

George proudly notes that he was the first Canadian in the Majors. He played with Honus Wagner on the 1905 World Champion Pirates team.

Hans was discovered by the Pirates' owner while playing in Atlantic City New Jersey. His story of his race against a horse around the bases is a classic.

Sam's nickname was Wahoo...the name of his home town. He holds the Major League lifetime record for triples and one year Sam had 8 inside the park homers!.

Richard "Rube" Marquard broke in with the NY Giants in 1908 and he teamed with Christy Mathewson for 7 years. He finished with 201 wins.

Edd got his break in the Federal League after washing out with the White Sox. He always believed his 1919 Reds would have won the World Series even without the Black Sox scandal. This card is a rare Federal League HOFer!

Wamby lamented that no matter what he did in his life, he would always be remembered for only one thing: his unassisted triple play in the 1920 World Series.

Specs was one of the first players to wear glasses on the field. They didn't stop him from playing 8 seasons in the Bigs. Sadly, he went blind in later life.

A mediocre pitcher in his early days in the Majors, Ray''s arm gave out at age 25. Undeterred, he turned to the outfield and he proudly tells us he had a .302 career BA.

Although listed as a 1926 issue, this card describes Lindy's May 1927 flight, so it should be dated 1927!

Sam played with the Yankees in the 20''s. His biggest thrill was pitching a no-hitter in 1923.

Floyd relates that he was not named after Babe Ruth, but Babe Herman a champion prizefighter. He laments that if he had 3 more hits in 1930 he would have batted .400, not .393!

Bob was the 1926 AL MVP. Interestingly, he was the catcher who threw out Babe Ruth at second to end the 1926 World Series!

The "Yellow" Ruth is one of the classic cards in the Hobby.

Frank won 2 batting titles, but laments he was offered a $1,000 pay cut after winning one of them! Hit .398 one year. Proud of his role in establishing pro ball in Japan.

Willie was amazed when he was sold to the White Sox in 1922 for $100,000. He thought he wasn't worth it. After a 13 year career with a lifetime BA of .291...he was probably right!

The "Iron Horse" was a fantastic player. Playing in Ruth''''s shadow, Lou had a .340 lifetime BA with 493 HRs. ALS..a disease now bearing his name...struck Lou down at age 38.

Great batting pose of the Babe!!

The "Red Ruth" forms a classic pair with its yellow counterpart.

Nice centered copy of Mickey’s true rookie card. Notice that his uniform number is “6”.

One of Yogi's best cards.

I think this is Stan's best card, Great smile. Love the Cards' cap.

Great shot of Peewee leaping over a sliding Phil Rizzuto!

Minnie appears to be praying to the baseball gods for more hits in his bat!

This is my favorite card of Mickey. The uncluttered picture of the young Mantle with a perfect blue sky in the background depicted here is amazing!

My favorite Mantle card, The young slugger follows through on a swing at Yankee Stadium with blue sky behind him.

Love the red color and pose on this one.

Great photo of the HOF Lefty!

A favorite. Love the blue sky behind Joe.

Kids would apply this decal to their bats!

Great card of Ted! He would be the #1 card in the 1958 Topps set as well.

Very unpopular with the kids, but there are 2 Hall of Famers here!

Jim would follow up his Hall of Fame career as a U.S. Senator.

The "Lucky Penny" card which offered a free keychain if you sent a Bazooka bubblegum wrapper in to Topps.

I love the orange background and Mickey's smile on this card.

I love the orange background and Mickey's smile on this card.

I love the orange background and Mickey's smile on this card.

One of my favorite cards of Bob.

One of my favorite Mantle cards. Love the cherry red border.

#42 capped off a great 1958 season for Mickey.

Great card of Don's historic feat!

Manny's Baseball Land was across the street from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. They apparently produced a set of Yankees cards in 1961,

Johnny hit 21 homers in only 234 at bats in 1961. He appeared mostly as a pinch hitter and backup catcher to Yogi and Elston.

Larsen''s perfect World Series game has never been duplicated.

Great card of Mickey and Willie!

Mickey's smooth swing is featured on this card.

John was a Yank for 7 years. In 5 World Series he batted .345.

Nice card of Roger and Mickey comparing bats with Kaline and Cash.

Joe's rookie card. Joe tells me that Jay Ward is actually pictured above him. Not Bloomfield!

Joe shares this card with another fine Twin player, Rich Reese.

Joe shares this card with a Twin team mate, Rich Reese. They are still in touch 50 years later!

Joe waits on deck here, studying the opposing pitcher.

Joe's first card with the A's.

Nice rookie card of "Tom Terrific".

Tough woodgrain borders again..

Love this one! Mickey with Willie and Killer

My favorite. Joe's final card shows him in one of Charley Finley's innovative uniforms.

"Tom Terrific" you certainly were that. RIP old friend.

Mickey's final card was issued after he retired, so the stats on the back are his career numbers.

Leo was a great manager...he is credited with the line: "Nice guys finish last".

Schiraldi was traded to the Red Sox before the 1986 season. Ironically Calvin LOST Games 6 and 7 of the 1986 World Series. The man the Mets got for him, Bobby Ojeda, WON Game 3 of the Series.

Rusty retired before the 1986 season.

This picture is a drawing of the only known portrait of Daniel made from life.

Never thought they'd have Chrome inserts of Davy! Actually, a pretty nice card, reminiscent of the 1956 Topps Baseball set. Picture of Davy with the Alamo in the background.

Mantel here on this coin distributed with Armour Meat products.

Last year for Armour. I really like this orange PSA 10.

These were found in bags of Shirriff potato chips.

Sixth Man, Cazzie Russell provided a spark to the 69-70 Champion Knicks.

"Tricky Dick", the shooting guard had a deadly jumper.

"Dollar Bill" was the small forward on the team. His shooting and passing skills earned him entry into the basketball HOF.

"The Captain" was the Regular Season, All Star Game and Playoff MVP in the 1969-70 Season!

Reliable off the bench, Dave added defense and rebounding to the Knicks squad.

Dave was the missing piece to the Knicks puzzle. Acquired from the Pistons he added toughness, defense and a great shooting touch as the Knicks' power forward.

"Clyde, Clyde, the people's choice" as Red Holtzman used to say. Brilliant point guard.

Frank was the football equivalent of Mickey Mantle when I grew up in New York City. Great player, HOFer and MNF announcer!

At 6'2" 220 lbs, Bob was a "smallish" LB. He intercepted 3 passed in 1959.

Tough Black Border card.

Love seeing Jim's white Caddy in the background.
