For those of you who don’t know, Bruce Markusen writes a column devoted to baseball cards (usually focusing on a single card) for the Hall of Fame web site. He has a new entry today, which is on the 1968 Don Mincher card.
Bruce is a member of this committee, but even if he wasn’t I would recommend giving his column a read. At the very bottom of the page there are some links to earlier entries, but you might need Google to find the rest.
Several years ago Arthur Zillante reviewed a few baseball books for SABR’s Baseball Research Journal. You can read his review here. Feel free to “comment” about these books and others.
Partly to test out our brand new blog (for SABR’s Baseball Cards committee), I thought I would provide links to a series of articles I wrote in the spring of 2016 on Topps baseball cards. Here they are.
