Sam Jethroe

My newest post is up over at Talking Chop, the best of the several great blogs about the Braves. This week, I muse about baseball records and the affects of PEDs and segregation on said records, Sam Jethroe (who broke the color barrier for the Braves) and Jethroe’s four Bowman cards from 1950 to 1953. The card above is from the 1953 Bowman Color set, which was the first modern set to feature full color photography. The cards are stunning. Give it a read!
