Retro Break: The 1950s

Let's get started! The group break cards have arrived and I finally have a moment to myself. We're going to start with the oldest cards pulled from the lot. I should warn you that my scanner was cutting some of the borders off of these, and the cards the breakers will be receiving are often more complete than they appear here.

1951 Bowman
Unclaimed Cards: 2
Claimed Cards: 1
#147 Ken Hinetzelman - Phillies (by BS)

Big crease, plenty of wear, but otherwise presentable.

1952 Bowman
Unclaimed Cards: 1
Claimed Cards: 3
#12 Max Surkont - Braves (by Chris Mays)

#49 Jim Hearn - Giants (by BS)

#22 Willard Ramsdell - Cubs (by P-Town Tom)

The Ramsdell is probably the most beat-up card in the lot, but man, that Jim Hearn is in outstanding shape! Surkont is a guy I've never heard of, but I'm guessing Chris will like it.

1954 Bowman
Unclaimed Cards: 1
Claimed Cards: 0
Sorry, no one picked this team.

1955 Bowman
Unclaimed Cards: 2
Claimed Cards: 3
#1 Hoyt Wilhelm - Giants (by BS)

Man, BS is killing it so far! I'm guessing the Wilhelm has historically suffered from the first-card-in-the-set fate shared by other cards that got worn out sitting at the top of a rubber-banded stack, but this one looks pretty damn good to me.
#171 Robin Roberts - Phillies (by BS)

Wow, another big name. Acceptable condition, too.
#85 Cass Michaels - White Sox (by JediJeff)

Alright, another breaker gets in on the action.

1959 Topps
Unclaimed Cards: 0
Claimed Cards: 1
#130 Lou Jackson - Cubs (by P-Town Tom)

Tom picks up the only card from this set to appear in the lot. I think it's one I need for my '59 set, but these rookie stars are pretty easy to find on the cheap, and I'm sure one will come my way eventually.

Looks like Play at the Plate is the only one to get '50 skunked, but I can say with confidence that he will not suffer the same fate in the 1960s.

The Ramsdell is a sweet card. "Well-loved" condition is my favorite for vintage cards.

If you need the '59 Jackson you're welcome to it. I have a handful of cards from that set, including TWO Jackson rookies. A third isn't going to do me any good!

Play at the Plate said...

Great cards, even if I did get shut out. Lookin' forward to the 60's.

P-town Tom, that's mighty nice of you. I'll make sure there's a little something extra in your stocking.
