Default Series #2 Card set for players Post 1930...who makes the 54 player cut?

To recap, I have had a few polls and discussions over the past week or so as to designing a set of cards to feature players. Now comes the last thing to decide....

What players to put into the set.

The votes for the last poll of how to break down the players featured in the NET 54 Card set was almost a dead split tie….so to create even better and fun discussion (and since this was my idea….) The Net 54 Set will be comprised of 2 Series!

The 1st series will be for players that made an their first appearance in 1929 or earlier.

2nd series will be for players that made their first appearance in 1930 or later.

I have listed the checklist on the first post of this thread which I will update periodically when it seems like there is a strong consensus for inclusion.

Let the discussion begin!

Limiting this to 54 players should create a lot of good conversation. I am sure there will be disagreements. Try to keep it all respectful.





Card # Player
1 Jackie Robinson
2 Ted Williams
3 Mickey Mantle
4 Hank Aaron
5 Willie Mays
6 Warren Spahn
7 Stan Musial
8 Cool Papa Bell

As with my suggestion on the other thread, I'm going to suggest interesting but not necessarily great players. Of course Mickey Mantle was awesome, he doesn't need to be celebrated in another card set for anyone to get that. But we can highlight interesting and/or underappreciated players.


How about:

Isao Harimoto - Japan's all-time hits leaders (and atom bomb survivor)
The Alou Brothers (they can share a card)
A card about players who actually saw combat in WWII (Spahn, etc.)
Mark Fidrych (he can be pictured talking to a baseball)

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.
