Jim Gilliam

Where purchased: eBay

Condition: Good to very good. There is a pretty good crease in the top right corner but other than that it's in pretty good shape.

Comments: When Jackie Robinson moved to third base and the outfield in 1953, it was Jim Gilliam who replaced him. He played so well, he was named NL Rookie of the Year.

Frankie Baumholtz

Where purchased: eBay

Condition: Good. Has a pretty rough top edge and a few light creases.

Comments: Reading the back of the card, Baumholtz was also a professional basketball player.

Dee Fondy

Where purchased: eBay

Condition: Good. It looks like this card may have some water damage. The front looks pretty good but the back has some slight staining.

Comments: Fondy had a good year with the Cubs in 1953 hitting .309 with 18 homers and 78 RBI.

Eddie Yost

Where purchased: eBay

Condition: Good. It's got a few creases but still a nice card.

Comments: I really think those zipper-front uniforms of the 1950s were cool!
