Default Cards you didnít realize were as cool as they are!!!

Iíll go first. I never realized this was Nap Lajoie tagging Collins.. I always figured it was Murphy. Two of the greatest second basemen of all time!

Default Behind every Blondy lurches a base runner in full tilt

I've known for years that almost all Diamond Stars are awesome, but just noticed recently the player bookin' it behind Ryan...now that is some cool cartoony Art Deco action for you.

I love the Diamond Star issue also. Incredible artwork that rivals '33 Goudey IMO. Does anyone know why Gehrig wasn’t featured in the ‘35 Diamond Star set? I’ve always wondered why one of the biggest studs of that time wasn’t included.

The Reese 53 Bowman Color is one of my favorite all time cards, hands down.

One of the coolest cards in the hobby, in my opinion as well. It doesn't currently fit the structure of my HoF project, but eventually it will be added to my collection.

Pretty sure the 1934 Goudey set answers your question -- looks like he had an exclusive deal with them.

Thanks to the OBC guys for this one. They knew I liked it and sent it to me. It doesn't get better than that.

Is it safe to assume the photo was taken in spring training in Florida?
