1961 Topps Check List : The Late Innings
Back in August 2013, I broke down each 1961 Topps checklist , linking their action photo to specific 1960 contests. To catch you up--and remind myself--here's the full list, with an example shot of Ernie Banks sliding into second. #17 Checklist 1 : June 9 (...

1976 Caruso Salt Lake City Gulls Baseball #5, Carlos Lopez
With my lengthy history as a Mariners fan, I should've gotten to know Carlos Lopez by now, but for some reason I haven't. I might've even known off the top of my head that he played 99 games for their 1977 expansion squad and was traded thereafter in a swap...

1968 Topps Venezuelan Baseball #5, NL HR Leaders (Hank Aaron, Jimmy Wynn, Ron Santo, Willie McCovey)
Hank Aaron, Jim "Toy Cannon" Wynn, Ron Santo, and Willie McCovey? This who's-who of late-60s power hitters holds a special place in my heart as the last vintage Venezuelan on my #5 wantlist. It's got tape stains, missing paper, and creases, but you can't te...

1886 N48 Allen & Ginter "Dixie Cigarettes" Lady Baseball Players #5
I recently came across my second 19th century type card, a woman in hazy sepia pretending to catch a ball dangling on a string. While unusual in style, I didn't realize they created un scandal  in their time, likely because women weren't socially accepted a...

1933 Goudey "World War Gum" (R174, military) #5, Practice At Camp
Today (August 23) in 1914, over 35,000 British troops encountered Germany's 1st army in Belgium, following similar engagements by France earlier that week. It was Britain's first continental battle of WWI, and while at numerical disadvantage, their forces w...

National Sports Collectors Show, Day 2 Highlights
As time and tide wait for no man, neither do your feet adjust to hours of pounding around the robust concrete floors of Rosemont's convention center. Oy vey. But onto the cards! I spent two hours sifting through variety boxes at one of my favorite National ...

1976 Caruso Phoenix Giants Baseball #5, Skip James
In my last post (Carlos Lopez), I lamented how card maker Caruso picked green bunting for a 1976 bicentennial team set, when the situation obviously called for red. Ugh. It's only now that I realize: I'd forgotten about this post from 2013 . Orange bunting ...

1977 Cramer Pacific Coast League Baseball #5, Bob Knepper
Do you like orange? Here's future big leaguer Bob Knepper, modeling a Dutch-orange hat against orange trim and orange borders. His card background shows a Southwestern staple, well-watered grass that ends at a fence line. This hints at an interesting questi...

1922 W503 Baseball #5, Bill "Rosy" Ryan
As a fan of baseball eras long past, it's fun to think every player has their own piece of history. The one thing they did that few others have. Lou Gehrig played 2130 straight games. Roger Clemens struck out 20 guys twice. Jamie Quirk hit a walk-off homer ...

1960 Topps #389, World Series Game 5
This card's always intrigued me, as it could show Maury Wills making a play at second long before he worked out his contract situation with Topps and first appeared "officially" as a Pirate in 1967. So is this really an unnamed Wills covering second? Yes. W...

I worked with Clinton for two hours on costume photos for a professional-level book submission. He was professional, creative, and made good use of incidental opportunities both in and out of his normal studio. Happy to recommend him.
