I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

One thought on “Social Distancing Diary ~ with Baseball Cards

  1. Hey Oscar, good to see you back. I collect older cards too. Just a couple of notes for you. That card with Lavagetto, Sievers and Lemon is from the 1959 Topps set. Lemon is Jim Lemon, not Bob who is a HOFer. Lavagetto is best known for breaking up Bill Bevens no-hitter in the 1947 World Series with a PH double in the 9th. Roy Sievers was a power hitting outfielder, who won the HR crown in 1957. He not only played for the Senators who ended up moving to Minnesota, but he also played for the expansion Senators who are now the Texas Rangers. You also had a card of Dave Sisler on the last page you showed. Sisler and his brother Dick, who played with the Phillies. Sisler hit a 10th inning opposite field homer on the last day of the 1950 season against the Dodgers that won the Whiz Kids their first pennant in 35 years. They were the sons of Hall of Famer George Sisler. Since older cards can be expensive, and sometimes hard to find, I sometime get the reprints. Most of my early Brooklyn cards are reprints, and some are not. I have a 50 Bowman of Furillo that is in pretty rough shape, but it still has the color and a look you have to appreciate. One set I do have that is all original, are my 1959 Topps Dodgers set. It is complete. Hardest to get were the series 7 cards which included Wally Moon, Jim Baxes and Gene Snyder. I managed to find all of them only to realize I was missing Johnny Klippstein. I bought one of those last May and now I have them all.
