    One of my favorite books is the Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading and Bubble Gum Book It is a snarky walk down memory lane by the author, ruminating on things like whether Sal Maglee always had 5 o clock shadow, and what makes a real baseball name It illustrated these discussions with pictures of vintage baseball cards that so you could easily understand what they were talking about It was very humorous I was hoping that Got Em Got Em Need Em wasof the same, but it did One of my favorite books is the Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading and Bubble Gum Book It is a snarky walk down memory lane by the author, ruminating on things like whether Sal Maglee always had 5 o clock shadow, and what makes a real baseball name It illustrated these discussions with pictures of vintage baseball cards that so you could easily understand what they were talking about It was very humorous I was hoping that Got Em Got Em Need Em wasof the same, but it didn t quite match the aplomb of the earlier book Got Em etc was a different story It was to show the top 100 sports cards and to describe why they were on the list It seemed to me on finishing the book that the authors really named the top 100 athletes that had been featured on sports cards, so it was a kind of subjective popularity ranking This covered all sports that had trading cards, so baseball players accounted for half or so As this was a Canadian book, hockey was represented and in my American mind over represented , but the authors provided a number of explanations behind their choices It was quite a personal book for the authors The bulk of the book is the listing of the 100 cards, with writeups on each and a photo The writeups covered the athlete s story as well as any unique story about the card You learn a lot about the trading card industry and its history reading this The authors included a few interludes describing some card bloopers as well as each author s favorite cards I learned a lot and was entertained While I have collected some sports cards in my day, my collection is small and mostly from the seventies and early eighties I was disappointed that the only card I had that made this list was Dr J s rookie card And while I have OJ Simpson s rookie card, that particular OJ card didn t make the list, but another one did I enjoyed this quite a bit You will absolutely receive an education on hockey while reading this, but if you like to knowabout trading cards in this kind of format, it works
