A fond farewell to Sy Berger, the creator of the modern day baseball card. Picturing him in his kitchen in 1951 with colored paper, cut outs, and scissors making the '52 Topps set is a trip to say the least. To say the most, heeeeere's Keith:
I have the regular, more than likely more circulated Tom Reynolds (Tom, space,space,space, Reynolds, space, dot, position, dash, position) in my Mets baseball card collection. I imagine the one that still has traces of the "MIE" showing is the rarest.
A regular 'ol Tom Reynolds (big space, no trace) is good enough for my collection.

I was remiss in not having a Reynolds of any Tom on my '67mfc page, so I'll correct that error now.
|'67mfc Tommie Reynolds|
Thanks to Keith Olbermann for bringing the Reynolds variations to my attention.
Thanks to Sy Berger for making a segment of my childhood an adventure in baseball cards that continues still.
In case I don't post before, have a Happy Chanukah and a very Merry Christmas everyone!
