The Golden Age of Baseball Cards™

...its influence on society and the game

 

Baseball Card Gallery of Art

The Baseball Card Gallery of Art is dedicated to those cards that remind us of what baseball and baseball card collecting has meant to us over the years. These were the first cards inducted into the Baseball Card Hall of Fame, and therefore have been grandfathered into the Baseball Card Hall of Fame.

Criteria for Consideration

Since this is a work in progress, the criteria can change over time. It is hoped that over time there will be some sense of legitimacy to this work. At present, it is nothing more than the opinion of this website.

Partial List of Criteria:

  • Topps® 1952 to 1974 --- This limits the cards eligible to become the “Greatest Baseball Card Ever” to those that were most popular with boys growing up, when cards were purchased throughout the summer as each series became available, before factory sets could be easily obtained, and when collecting cards was something that kids did for fun, not for investment purposes.
  • The Beckett Baseball Card Price Guide provides the basis for part of the evaluation providing an impartial value for popularity, scarcity and other factors contributing to the current monetary value of a baseball card. Since the Beckett Price Guide has shown minimal change in values for baseball cards over the last few years this aspect of the evaluation will be reviewed in the future.
  • Level that the card image portrays the person as baseball player
  • Level that the card image depicts baseball as a sport
  • Emotional substance of the card (Wow Factor)

1956 Harry Simpson Baseball Card Topps #239An example may provide more insight into the process.  The Topps 1956 #239 baseball card of Harry Simpson contains the necessary ingredients for a great card.  The action shot is almost a reverse image of the famous Joe DiMaggio photograph that many of us have seen.  If Harry 'Suitcase' Simpson could have had the career of a DiMaggio or Mantle, this card would qualify for greatest.  As it stands, it is a very good card for a player whose career tailed off after 1956.

The following are the twenty-five cards initially inducted into the Golden Age of Baseball Cards Hall of Fame and are now part of the Baseball Card Gallery of Art. Scroll over the embossed image of the card to see the real thing.

 

 
The 1956 Mickey Mantle card, which achieved the Greatest Baseball Card Ever Award, is the first card inducted into the Baseball Card Hall of Fame. Mantle's performance and popularity have made his baseball cards among the most treasured of the modern era.
The Willie Mays card of 1956 portrays him as the daring baserunner he was.  The greatest fielding center fielder of all time was a threat at bat and on the basepaths.  His basket catches in the outfield gave him the reputation of a "show off", until his rifle arm and quick release gunned down the baserunner who thought his casual approach could provide them an opportunity.
The 1956 Roberto Clemente card depicts him as one of the best all-time fielding outfielders of the game.  While his acrobatic catches were amazing to watch, his skill at making the difficult catches look easy set him apart from the rest.   
Possibly the greatest pitcher of all time and definitely a dominating pitcher of the Golden Age, the 1956 Sandy Koufax card shows Koufax in control, something that was elusive to him in the early years of his career.   
The Jackie Robinson card of 1956 shows him sliding into home plate, something he did with more daring than any player, except for possibly Ty Cobb.  His steal of home during the first game of the 1955 World Series is just one example of his work on the basepaths.  
The "Splendid Splinter'  was often at odds with fans and the press.  The first of two Ted Williams cards of 1954 shows him with a smiling face in a casual pose alongside his classic swing.  The best hitter to ever play the game deserves a card that shows him at his best.  
The 1955 card of Willie Mays complements his 1956 card by illustrating his fluid swing.  His batting style was unique in that he seemed both loose and explosive at the same time enabling him to whip the ball with tremendous power.  
The 1954 card of Yogi Berra depicts him both as a hitter and as a catcher. His cat-like reflexes enabled him to be an exceptional fielder despite his paunchy appearance. Opposing pitchers had difficulty pitching around him since he could hit just about anything. Intentionally walking Mickey Mantle to get to Yogi often spelled disaster for the opposition. As Yogi would say, "It ain't over 'til it's over".  
The 1955 card of Ted Williams reveals a swing under perfect control.  His exceptional eyesight enabled him to hit for power and average.  
The rendering of Duke Snider's card of 1955 shows the picture perfect swing that led the league in home runs and RBIs during the decade of the 1950s.  The "Duke of Flatbush" is often forgotten, playing in the shadow of Mantle, Mays and Williams.    
The Roger Maris card of 1962 depicts the power hitter for what he was --- the greatest home run hitter since Babe Ruth.  While everyone wanted Mickey Mantle to achieve that distinction, Maris has held that distinction with honor since he achieved the feat.  The expression on his face seems to reflect the public's lack of acceptance of his feat, which occurred the prior year.  
This Hank Aaron card from 1956 gets him a well deserved position.  While a good baserunner, Aaron was known for his hitting, not running.  The card, unfortunately, depicts Willie Mays sliding into home.  
A fiercesome hitter, this 1957 card of Frank Robinson displays his choked-up batting stance, which oddly enough enabled him to hit 586 home runs. He would lean well over the plate and was hit often by opposing pitchers. His aggressive baserunning also labeled him as a dirty player.  His defense was that the baseline belonged to the baserunner.  
Another Mickey Mantle card from 1964 shows him from the right side, the more powerful side. After an injury riddled 1963 season, Mantle hit only 35 homers in 1964, a disappointment to most fans - a career season for most other players.  
  This unique card of Williams shows him hitting a rare popup.  1956 was an off-year for Williams when his average dipped to .345.  
  The "Scooter" was an excellent fielder who was second only to Lou Boudreau in fielding percentage for shortstops.  
  The 1966 card of Mantle shows him from the left side. Still a favorite and still with power.  
  Ted Williams is the only player to have two cards from the same year, 1954, inducted into the Hall of Fame. His cards were the first and last issued that year.  
  This card Aaron from 1957 exemplifies the approach Hank Aaron had to hitting.  His relaxed stance and smooth, wrist-flicking swing made home run hitting look easy. This is a classic card, if only it hadn't been printed in reverse image.    
  The Clemente rookie card from 1955 is that of an above average player who didn't break out of his shell until after 1959.  
  This 1954 card of Willie Mays is very similar to the 1955 card though the swing in the 1955 card is more representative of Willie Mays.

In 1954 Mays won the MVP award and led the league in hitting with a .345 batting average, 41 HRs and 110 RBIs.  This exciting baserunner led the league in triples with 13.



 
 
  Willie Mays in 1953 had already taken the Major Leagues by storm and consistently made catches in center field that stunned the lucky fans able to see them.

Willie Mays did not play in 1953. He was drafted into the military in 1952 and missed all of 1953, about 266 games. While he spent most of his time in the service playing baseball, the records didn't count. If he would have been able to play those games, he very likely would have broken Ruth's record and had Hank Aaron challenging him, while they each were in the last years of their respective careers.
 
  The 1960 card of Mickey Mantle depicts a calm and confident player. While he only hit .275 with 40 home runs he came in second for the MVP Award.  In his career Mantle won 3 MVP Awards. A little known fact is that he came in second in the voting 3 times and 3rd once.

For most of his career he was being written off only to hobble to the plate and rip the ball into the seats.
 
  Yogi Berra, in 1953, seven years into his career had already established himself as the premier catcher in the game. he was MVP in 1954 and 1955.

A notorious bad ball hitter, probably the best ever, he could hit very low pitches for home runs and very high pitches into the gap. He seldom struck out and hit for a career .285 average.
 
  There is something about this card that just pops when I look at it.  It screams greatness.  Maybe it is that Jackie Robinson, with all that he had to go through, was able to smile while he played with courage.
