The first card is from the second of four series of 55 cards issued by Big League Collectibles from 1982-85. It measures 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" and is on heavy stock. Each set was limited to 10,000.
The uniform patch dates this to sometime during WWII. Here's a link to a signed copy of the original photograph.
Next up is perhaps even more of an oddball, coming from a 65 card set of Ohio legends. The "cards", issued in 1982 are pretty much postcard sized, 3-3/8" x 5-5/8" and are on thin stock.
Without getting too deeply into this quagmire, Lou is technically Jewish ( and this is where I start getting uncomfortable) seeing as his mother was Jewish. After a divorce Lou was raised as a Christian by his father. Regardless of his upbringing/heritage, I decided to collect "The Good Kid" because I have fond memories of listening to him broadcasting Cubs games on WGN radio and sometimes TV.
