More Baseball Cards

For the story behind these cards, see here.

As promised, there are a couple more pictures of my uncle's baseball card collection in the extended entry. Braves and Cubs fans will be particularly pleased I think.


The light for this shot was a little 40 watt desk lamp, that's why it looks so yellow. Aaron's card is a 1958 Topps, Mathews is a 1957 Topps.


1956 Topps. I only saw Banks playing first base, and it seemed that he was there for years. Anyone know how long he played at shortstop before moving over?

Ooooh, Ernie Banks. Can't answer your question, but I have a signed baseball of his. :-)

You got some great cards there. I wish I had my old cards but they were thrown out years ago.

Banks joined the Cubs in '53 as a shortstop. He made the move to first in the '61 season. So, basically, he was a shortstop for the first half of his career and a 1st baseman for the second half.
