1921 Babe Ruth Personally Documented Home Run Bat Attributed to Record 59th of the Season, PSA/DNA GU 10. "I wish him all the luck in the world," Yankees teammate Frank "Home Run" Baker told the press midway through the 1921 season. "He has everybody else, including myself, hopelessly outclassed." It's likely that the aging star of Connie Mack's "$100,000 Infield" felt a bit sheepish about his own moniker as he shared a dugout with Ruth, having never put more than a dozen into the seats during a
During his 18-year career with the New York Yankees, Mickey Mantle became arguably the best hitting outfielder in Major League Baseball history and did it from both sides of the plate. A 20-time All-Star, Mantle won seven World Series championships, was a three-time American League MVP, led the AL in home runs four times and earned the Triple Crown in 1956. Mantle has his No. 7 retired by the Yankees franchise, was named to the MLB All-Century Team and was inducted into the National Baseball Hal
The period from 1909-1915 is regarded by many as the golden age of baseball cards. In order to capitalize on the burgeoning popularity of America’s National Pastime, cards once again, became a viable way for tobacco and candy companies to promote their products. In 1909 the American Tobacco Company issued its landmark T206 set of baseball cards. The set, issued over a three-year span from 1909-1911, featured virtually all of the baseball players of the day, and eventually included 523 different

While an expectant nation awaited the forecast on the arrival of Spring from a rodent in Pennsylvania, Mickey Mantle was making his own preparations for the coming thaw, hoping that the operation to remove a cyst from behind his right knee might do something to lessen the pain that had plagued him since his injury in Game Two of the 1951 World Series. The Yankees had posted their fifth consecutive World

Jackie Robinson became the first African-American major league baseball player of the modern era in 1947, thanks to the help and courage of the Dodgers' Branch Rickey. While not the first African American professional baseball player in United States history, his Major League debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers ended approximately eighty years of baseball segregation, also known as the baseball color line. In the United States at this time, many white people believed that blacks and whites should be

Since its introduction more than 50 years ago, the 1952 Topps baseball card set has become an icon of baby boomer popular culture. The brainchild of Topps’ pioneers Sy Berger, and Woody Gelman, its beginning was both auspicious and humble. In designing the cards, Berger chose to play it safe with the information on the back. At the top of the column for the player's statistics from the previous season, he wrote "past year" instead of 1951. "We didn't know if these things would sell. We were neop
