Default Lew Lipset's "Four Base Hits" catalogs

Back in the day, there was nothing better than Lew's "Four Base Hits" catalogs.

They were the best!

Larry Fritsch's "One of a kind catalogs" were a close second!

I sent away for a Larry Fritsch catalog around 1972. I would have been about 11. Previously, I had acquired at least one Topps card from every year dating back to 1953, but I had never seen a 1952 Topps before. Displayed in the catalog was the 1952 Topps card of Johnny Mize, which I decided I had to have. I think I paid a quarter for it. I recall the entire set was available for $350 ...

Fun fact: Johnson Smith had the only paid advertisement in Action Comics #1. Their ad appeared on the back cover.

I use to buy cards through the mail from a guy named Bill Henderson from maybe Alabama around 1978. I may have the name and state wrong, but he would send out a black and white zerox of a typed page of his inventory.
I know I bought a 58 Berra from him and I still have it. Probably paid 6 to 10 dollars for it.

I bought a lot from Bill in the 1990s & early 2000s while I was building my Topps sets - he's still on ebay -couldn't tell you the state off the top of my head. I was never disappointed.

Here is Mr. Henderson's response to my email inquiry:


After 41 years of being a sports card Dealer and at the age of 73, I decided to hang up my hat and retire. Sold my material to another dealer last September



Thank you for your past business.




Take care bill



A Good Guy & Honest Dealer.
