Card of the Day

I admire those of you who make collecting goals and methodically work at achieving them.  My collecting, like my collection, is pretty disorganized.  A couple of years ago I had the idea to start collecting cards of Jewish players.  Here's a recent addition, my only card purchase this month.

Al "Flip" Rosen will most likely be in anyone's top 5 or so greatest Jewish baseball players.   This commemorative card is from the Topps' 1961 set.  It's not from his playing days but it is vintage.

Here's a relatively recent interview with Al:


  1. Awesome card! His '53 Topps issue is quite high on my list at the moment.

  2. I don't know if I've ever seen the Indians logo with the "C" and Chief Wahoo together.

    Great add!!

    1. The Indians wore them from 1951-1957 and again in 1962. I find it interesting that the logo is on a patch, not directly embroidered on the cap.

  3. Sweet Hebrew Hammer! One of the few I still need aside from rare food releases. Love me some Rosen cardboard goodness!
