A very beat-up version of Bombers' Best was one of the first multi-player cards I ever acquired as a kid back in the 1970s. Because of that card, I used to think that Tom Tresh was one of the Yankee immortals along with Mantle, Berra, Ruth, DiMaggio, etc.

The 1967 set was kind of the pinnacle of multi-player cards, with 13 of them and very little chaff amidst the wheat. Mays-McCovey, Cash-Kaline, Brock-Flood, Stargell-Clendenon, Colavito-Wagner, all in wonderful posed shots, and leading off with the Robinson boys and Hank Bauer. It was the first set I collected, and those combo card helped form my sense of what a baseball card was supposed to look like.

And then we had my White Sox, represented by "Sox Sockers." Really? Pete Ward and Don Buford? Couldn't have gotten Gary Peters, Joe Horlen and Tommy John to team up for a picture? "South Side Slingers," maybe?

Whatever. I loved those cards, from all years, and have always enjoyed picking up the stray combo card from the off-condition commons bins at big card shows. Given some of the players on those cards, and the relatively low price tag on most of them, is there a better bargain in the hobby? (Well, maybe league leaders cards, but you get my point . . .)
