Pee Wee's 52 Berk Ross is also an awesome pose, terrible Berk Ross print quality, but the pose is great.



Doesn't hurt that I'm a Brooklyn Dodgers guy.

SO just to reiterate, let's keep this thread about cards that had something about them that you never knew, if you catch my drift. There's a million other threads where we can talk about the cards we love.

Sorry, with the Berk Ross it was more of a situation where I didn't think a lot of people knew about the card in general.

I have posted this before but my favorite card discovery was the fact that Reggie Smith's Rookie Card number (314) is the same as his career Home Run total. Maybe still not exactly what you had in mind but it was definitely a discovery of a "cool" nature.

Ah. Makes perfect sense now that you mention it.

Apologies for my bad photo skills (I can shoot another picture if anyone wants it) ... but here's a "signed" photo of the Berk Ross Reese.

A few years ago it was neat to discover (maybe I wasn't the first) that the Hal Chase cards in the 1913 National Game and 1913 Tom Barker are different poses, with the National Game set designating him as a New York Yankee and depicting him in a Yankee uniform, while the Tom Barker designates him as a member of the Chicago White Sox and shows him in a White Sox uniform.

These two Chase cards definitively point to the fact that the National Game set was issued before the Tom Barker in 1913, since Hal Chase was traded from the Yankees to the White Sox on June 1st, 1913. Both the Tom Barker and National Game cards have a patent date on the back of the card of March 25, 1913. Thus the National Game set was likely first issued in spring of 1913, while the Tom Barker set had to have been issued late summer 1913 at the earliest.

Why is this cool? For rookie collectors who are persnickety, Grover Alexander's National Game card can be identified as being his first card issued, with his Tom Barker a close second.

Brian (Note: the tiny Alexander is not my minty card)

Angels bat boy Leonard Garcia on an Aurelio Rodriguez card. From humdrum to funny in one switcharoo.

Poor conditioned card of course, but apparently this is a rare color-combination for this E98 Walsh. I had no idea about any of that when I purchased it.
