Default Braves World Series PC

Being a big Braves fan, I have always centered my PC around Braves cards (as well as having a small Hawks and Falcons PC). A few months back, I thought it would be a fun project to build the team sets from each year the Braves won a World Series (1914 in Boston, 1957 in Milwaukee and 1995).

Being that 1995 is nowhere near Vintage, I will spare you the scans of those in this thread, however, I have recently added a few from the other title years. So, to showcase my progress, I will update this thread whenever new cards are added (which will not be very often most likely... 100 year old cards are rare and expensive! Grrr!). But, without further ado, here are the scans:

1914 B-18 Blanket Square Hub Perdue



1957 Topps Danny O'Connell, Ed Mathews and Del Crandall




Thanks for the look!

Nice. You need to grab the '57 Aaron... I'd look for a low-grade PSA one if I were you. Just make sure it is centered...

Moving back to the B-18 Blanket portion of 1914, here is my most recent addition:

It would be cool to see those blanket things next to something else like a card or quarter or something to give some idea of scale.

Really neat idea for a collection. I have that Mathews card somewhere.

Apparently, I missed adding this one a few weeks back... so here is another addition:

B-18 Leslie Mann



And, as requested, here is a size comparison. 1968 Topps Phil Neikro as a reference:



So about twice as wide and 1.5 times the length.

Been a while since I made any progress on this, but had a card show in Greenville today and picked up a couple 1957s to add to my others.



Other card pictured is a 1911 S74 Silk card of Jack Murray. Guy I bought it from also had a 1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson. Might be the only time I get to see one of those in person. Had it marked down from $1500 to $900, but still about $750 out of my price range. Gorgeous card though.

I have not updated recently due to lack of activity, but I did just get a new B-18 in the mail. So here is what I got:

1914 B-18 Blanket "Seattle Bill" James (no relation to the sabermetrician) Brown Back



And some 1957 Topps: Frank Torre, Gene Conley, and the Team Card

I think those early Cracker Jack cards are awesome, they just have vibrant illustrations.

Yeah, that picture does it no justice. The red background is really sharpe!

Another quick update. Found this first one at a decent price on eBay. This makes 5/9 for the white infield squares:

1914 B-18 Blanket Bert Whaling



Then, apparently, I never uploaded this when it came in:

1914 B-18 Blanket Les Mann (Brown Infield)



3/9 for the Brown infields now.

New pick-up. I am now half way to a Braves Master set of T222 Fatimas (due to the fact there are only 2)!

I was surprised by the size of the card. Its not your typical tobacco sized card. And the scan hides some creases near the bottom of the card. But, I like the fact that its an actual photo instead of an illustrated card like the others from the time period (although I do love the T213 and Cracker Jack cards).
