Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Neat stuff. I always enjoy hearing this type of minutae that I tend to otherwise not hear or overlook. Now I want to go through my own and see what else.

Posted By: <b>Ted Zanidakis</b><p>I met Gerry at a BB card show in Freehold, NJ in 1981. He was looking for certain 1953 Topps cards at my table.<br />Gerry picked out of my stock album an assortment of 53T cards, and I asked him....why those particular cards ?<br />He surprised me as he told me he was the artist who drew them back in 1952. From that moment on Gerry and I <br />developed a lifelong friendship. There was a great article on Gerry in VCBC (issue #31).<br /><br />Shown here are some of the 1953 cards that Gerry was contracted out to do.<br /><br />TED Z<br /><br /><img src="http://www.freephotoserver.com/v001/tedzan/ajerrydvorak53topps8.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Ted -- I tell you I love all those cards, and for some reason Johnny "The Big Cat" (great nickname!) Mize's face probably sticks with me most through all these years...since I started collecting them in the 60s. What a puss!
