Non-Sport Sets That Never Were: 1976 Battle of the Network Stars by BucCollector (Last updated on Apr 20, 2022)

Battle of the Network Stars was a series of competitions pitting television stars from ABC, CBS, and NBC against one another various sporting events, which in 1976 included Swimming Relay, Tennis, Golf, Baseball Dunk, Bicycle Relay, Obstacle Course, Volleyball, Running Relay, and Tug-of-War.



Stars missing from this set, regrettably, include Pat Harrington, Jr. (Schneider on One Day at a Time) and Demond Wilson (Lamont on Sanford and Son).

Fun and Cool Cards I Have on Display by Vvvergeer (Last updated on Apr 16, 2022)

4/8/22
Dad's coin collection bought me a 1919-21 W514 Fred Merkle, I think the only one of him on the Cubs. Ernie Banks takes double hits, since I bought this card after realizing I just couldn't go for the Banks rookie AND this card replaced a 1967 Banks in this display.
And the Nolan Ryan rookie is here! Thanks, Dad. This replaces the 1969 Ryan I did have on display. And because it's horizontal, room became a problem, so the 1971 Clemente also goes back both to the binder.

Anyway....

Here's a list of the cards that are out of the binders, in cases, and on display on a shelf in our office (I also have my four display cases of Last Topps Card of Hall of Famers, The Merkle's Boner Collection, the T207 Cubs Team Set (partial), and the First Black Player on Every Team -- I don't include those here.

This display used to be only Hall of Famers (and autographed 1970 Pete Rose) until sometime in 2016, when I opened it up to cards and players I just liked, and I expanded more fully into non-Topps. Now I label each card carefully, explaining why its on display and/or some history of the player. Making it more personal to me and finding players with interesting histories really made it fun for me. I love these cards. Hope you enjoy it.

Been There, Done That by C2Cigars (Last updated on Apr 12, 2022)

☆*★*☆*★*☆*★*☆ MY LIFE IN CARDS ☆*★*☆*★*☆*★*☆


Stadiums/Arenas I've visited, bands/groups/performers I've seen live, people I've met, places I've visited, sights I've seen, etc.

It's pretty cool how we can chronicle our lives with cards. Compiling this list I've been amazed at some of the cards I've come across. I'm inspired to get these cards and place them in a binder entitled "My Life in Cards".

List is inspired by some other members' lists; such as switzr1's I Visited Their Grave, Gunny's Places I Have Been, rmpaq5's Stadiums I've Been To and Famous Landmarks I've Been To, Billy Kingsley's People I Have Met and others I can't recall. When I come across their lists again I'll give them their due.

First Black MLB Player on Every Team by Vvvergeer (Last updated on Apr 8, 2022)

1/17/22: It's done! The display is up!

The History --

Looking at my displayed vintage baseball cards, I became disturbed that three of my four displays were virtually all white players, because I mostly display cards from the pre-Topps years, i.e., before 1951. So there just weren't many black players on cards. This bothered me.

So I decided to make another display of all the first black players on every team, using the 16 teams that existed before expansion (credit to kcjays for the idea).

This is the list of players. I am picturing the card I have for each player, usually a card from their first year with the team. Sometimes, that was prohibitively expensive, so I got another card. One card is missing at the moment. I'll update, of course, if I get different cards.

As always, it's never quite as easy as it should be. John Kennedy, the first black player on the Phillies, has no cards at all. That actually works out perfectly, as I have 15 slots in the display case I intend to use/create (from an old wall-mounted cassette holder). Hank Thompson, the first black player for both the Giants and the St. Louis Browns, has no card of him with the Browns. But I'll use a Giants card in the St. Louis slot and use Monte Irvin, who debuted for the Giants on the same day as Thompson, for the Giants. And Nino Escalera, the first black player on the Redlegs, has no vintage cards. But Chuck Harmon debuted for them the same day, so I'll go with him. It's complicated, but actually works out very well for my purposes.

As soon as I threw away most of my cassettes, I looked at the holders and thought "baseball card display!" I intend to put a color picture of each teams logo from the year behind the player. Except for Chief Wahoo. The irony there would just be too much, so I'll go with a generic "Cleveland." I might put logos of various negro league teams around the edges, but maybe not. I will post a picture of the display when it's up if I can figure out how to do that. It will have some holes for awhile and some cards will eventually be replaced, but I have a critical mass of the cards, so I can put this up as soon as I fix up the case. For now they'll all go into a binder.

My intent here, is not to create controversy or debate. I just want to honor these (sometimes forgotten) pioneers of baseball. Also, note that these are NOT the first 16 black players in baseball after 1947. Some teams, like the Dodgers, had more than one black player pretty quickly. They're also not all rookie cards -- the Robinson because I can't afford it -- the Virgil because he played for other teams before he became the first black Tiger, for example.

Note, while not all were successful, five of the first eight players on this list are now in the Hall of Fame. ALL of those players were told they wouldn't be on teams at all if they weren't black.

Enjoy.

1969 Topps Kansas City Royals Autos by Calleyoop (Last updated on Mar 5, 2022)

The 1969 season was the first for the franchise, and the team finished 69-93 and fourth in the American League West Division. Seven short years later, the Royals represented the West Division in the ALCS against the New York Yankees.

My focus for this set is players that appear as a Royal on their baseball cards and actually played for the team during 1969. Exceptions have been made on a case by case basis for players that made special contributions to the team (e.g., Lou Piniella - AL Rookie of the Year).

Latest Update: Added Bill Butler

Last Topps (base set) Card of Every Hall of Famer Who Has a Topps Card by Vvvergeer (Last updated on Mar 4, 2022)

3/4/22 Update: Finished the two new shelves and successfully added them. Was about to add them Tuesday, when I realized I had put polyurethane on the original. Had to do the same with the new shelves, wait for it to dry, then try again Thursday, when my machinations actually worked. This case is HUGE. And I love it. 25 or so more slots available. Six years? Seven? Three? Let's hope for at least five....

This is my collection of the last Topps card of every Hall of Fame player who has a regular (base set) Topps card. I couldn't afford all the rookie cards and if I got into other companies, it'd be too intimidating. But I love this collection all the same. With this method, there are admittedly a lot of players in unfamiliar jerseys, but the cards also have more complete career stats than rookie cards, which is more relevant to HOF status. They are in order of year of induction. Enjoy.
