30 Day Baseball Card Challenge

Walk in the Park

Someone once said that choosing a favorite card is as difficult as picking your favorite child.  I wouldn't know, because I don't have any children.  However... I can assure you that choosing my favorite card was a walk in the park.

In fact, I'd guess that most of you already know my favorite piece of cardboard in the collection.  I mean... I've written about it on multiple occasions: here, here, here, here, and here.

But just in case you're new to the blog, I'll go ahead and mention it again since it's the final topic in Tony's 30 Day Baseball Card Challenge.

So without further adieu... here's a look at my favorite card:

1956 Topps #30

The man who broke MLB's color barrier featured on my favorite Topps baseball card design.  It truly doesn't get any better than that.

Now asking me to choose my second favorite baseball card isn't so easy.  Luckily that wasn't one of Tony's challenges.

Thank you Tony for creating the 30 Day Baseball Card Challenge.  It motivated me to write and take a closer look at my collection... even if I took much, much longer than anyone else to complete it.  If you decide to create another challenge, I promise that I'll be there to step up to the plate and I'll try not to take 362 days the next time around.

Happy Saturday and sayonara!


  1. That is a fantastic card! I've seen you mention it before, but it's worth repeating :)

  2. When you have multiple children you tell them secretly they all are your favorite. Just hope they don’t discuss amongst themselves these conversations or the gig is up! Nice card.

  3. What a crappy card. I'm a day late. ;)

  4. This is a great choice of a card for your collection. It's iconic.
