Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>Some of you might enjoy a page I created on the NY Giants wiki about early Giants football cards - I took it through 1935 so far and guess the next page will have to start with 1948 Bowman, Leaf, and Exhibit cards, 1949 Leaf and then to into the 1950s. If you know of others please let me know.<br /><br />Anyone ever seen a Mel Hein 1950 Rams Admiral card?<br /><br />Here's the link <a href="http://history.giants.com/page/Giants+Football+Cards" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://history.giants.com/page/Giants+Football+Cards</a><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Mike McKee</b><p>Great Stuff.<br /><br />Oddly enough the Friedman Sports America and the Strong Rogers Peat are photos when they were in college I believe.<br /><br />I think the Star Player Candy of Friedman maybe the first NY Football Giants card from a purest stand point. <br /><br />That brings up another point have they ever pinned down the year of that set. 1928? 1929?<br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>I have never seen the Star Player Candy Friedman card but would love to post an image on that Giants Wiki Page - in Googling it I found a nice image of the 1926 Friedman Spalding card at <a href="http://www.psacard.com/SetRegistry/alltimeset.aspx?s=14279" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.psacard.com/SetRegistry/alltimeset.aspx?s=14279</a> - and didn't Carl Lamendola write the article for Gridiron Greats? <br />I think Carl dates the Star Player Candy card as 1928. I have the book he wrote on Collecting Vintage Football Cards and will have to look it up in there - good leads - thanks!!

Posted By: <b>Michael Moran</b><p>The candy card is the same image that is on the cover of Murray Greenberg's new book: Passing Game, Benny Friedman and the Transformation of Football - it's credited to AP In the book there is an incredible picture from the Bentley Library at the University of Michigan of Freidman leaping to intercept a pass - AirBenny!
