The Folder of Fun, as I like to call it, has been in the works for about three years. That's about the time I stopped buying retail and hobby packs and began tracking down cards which fit a certain general description: FUN. Here's a link to the first post in this series if you'd like to go back and catch up.
Page 27 is our penultimate page (hat tip to Nachos Grande for teaching me the word) of the Folder of Fun. The last two pages focus on cards which I am simply attracted to for one reason or another. For the most part these pages feature iconic players or in some cases they are iconic pieces of cardboard in our hobby.
2005 Topps Pristine, #128 - Buck O'Neil
2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces, #8 - Lou Gehrig
1991 Upper Deck, #SP1 - Michael Jordan
2010 Topps National Chicle, #240 - Cy Young
2001 Topps "What Could Have Been" Insert, #WCB1 - Josh Gibson
Business Card for Sports Card Heaven
Baseball's Sad Lexicon.
1998 Topps, #21 - Roberto Clemente
1990 Upper Deck "Baseball Heroes" Insert, #18 of 18 - Nolan Ryan
2016 Topps Gypsy Queen, #324 - Satchel Paige
Satchel Paige was such a character: Super talented, a total showman and he had plenty of moxie to spare.
Which card is your favorite from Page 27? If I had to choose one it probably be the Lou Gehrig card from Upper Deck's Masterpieces set. It's beautifully executed and documents such an important moment in baseball history.
Stay tuned for the last page of the ever growing Folder of Fun.
