An All-Stars Cardboard Memories details the personalities, playing styles, and baseball trading cards of 56 Hall of Famers that played from the mid-1960s into the late-1990s. Red Sox Hall of Famer, Rico Petrocelli, had the opportunity to play with or against all of these superstar players at some point during his great Red Sox career. Rico talks about his relationships with some of these greats and what their personalities were like, as well as how they played the game. From Clemente’s uncanny ability to hit to all fields effortlessly, to the effective motion of Hall of Fame knuckleballer Wilhelm, to the unbelievable bat control of Carew, Rico shares his views and opinions on the personalities and talent of some fabulous Golden Era players and the greats that played into the 1990s. Besides Rico’s unique perspective on the players, card and collectibles expert Joe Orlando, CEO of Collector’s Universe, Inc and president of Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), educates us on every aspect of the baseball cards that accompany these Hall of Famers. Joe discusses the various card issues of each player as well as their rarity and popularity. What are the most sought-after cards? Which cards are the most elusive? Are there any diamonds in the rough?? The Hall of Famers in this book span one of the greatest periods in baseball history. When Rico broke into the major leagues, Golden Era greats like Mantle, Berra, Koufax, Roberts, Mazeroski, and Drysdale still dominated the Major League Baseball landscape. Over the next 13 years, Rico shared the diamond with the next generation of players that became superstars—greats like Brett, Fisk, Yount, Gossage, and Eckersley, just to name a few who dominated the game. We hope that you enjoy this fascinating trip through a significant period of our National Pastime. Sit back and enjoy An All-Star’s Cardboard Memories.
