Josh Gibson cards? If it is not much trouble, please post pics. I have always been intrigued by the player. Thanks

P.S. do any of you fellow collectors cross over into comics?

The only Josh Gibson cards you will find are tribute cards. The only things that exist from his playing days are photographs and postcards.

I used to own a gaming and comic store in Sacramento in the mid 90s. I didn't really colelct any comics, just aided my son's addiction to Spider-Man. I've always been a Batman fan but some of the newer titles like Astro City, Transmetropolitan, Strangers in Paradise and Milk & Cheese were always great reads. I have a buddy who just got his first 2 comics published, Devil Water and The Sword published by King Tractor Press. I got prerelease copies and both look very good.

This card of Gibson was issued a few years after his death:

Isn't that actually Josh Gibson's son?

Thanks Hal and others. I was unaware that no cards existed (absent tributes). I was under the impression that some were being sold on E-bay a while back. One was apparently of a Latin variety. Anyhow, thanks guys. Any Superman comic book fans?

No, Gibson's son is featured on the "Polar" card with the senior Gibson and Cool Papa Bell.

Oh wait... that card hasn't leaked out yet.

Gators better look out this weekend, Hal. I think my cats may be gearing up for a run. Hal, how long have you had your Ty Cobb back card?

I think I got it in 2003 in a Mastro or REA auction.

Sure wish that crease would get "soaked and pressed" out of there!
