The 2008 Hank Greenberg
2008 marked the 75th Anniversary of Hank Greenberg's rookie year. As baseball's first Jewish all-time Great, Greenberg attracted a whole generation of American Jews to baseball, and it was their children and grand-children who have gone on to become owners, coaches, players, executives, sportswriters, broadcasters, statisticians and, most of all, fans. No player has had a greater historical impact on the attachment of American Jews to America's Game.
To commemorate the anniversary, Pulitzer-Prize winning sportswriter (and Greenberg biographer) Ira Berkow wrote a subset of 10 Hank Greenberg cards, covering his career and life, including his years as a minor-leaguer, his World Series and All-Star Game records, his military service, the Yom Kippur story, his life as a baseball executive, and his encounter with Jackie Robinson. You may recognize some of the photographs, and be amazed by some others.
The 2008 set also celebrated Ryan Braun, the first-ever Jewish Rookie of the Year; and pioneer owner Barney Dreyfuss, newly elected to the Hall of Fame.
As always, the 2008 set includes all current Jewish major leaguers plus updated career leaders cards and the all-time roster, and a first-ever card for a newly discovered Jewish old-timer; "In Memoriam" cards for three recently deceased players; cards following up on the careers of former recent major leaguers Gabe Kapler and Adam Greenberg; and our usual assortment of "oddball" Jewish baseball history cards, this time covering such cosmically significant topics as the six brother combinations; coaches and managers; one-game players and winless pitchers; converts to Judaism; the high school which produced five Jewish players; foreign-born Jewish players; the only time a Jewish player was traded for another Jewish player; players who changed their names; professional baseball in Israel; the composer of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame";and the umpire who ejected John McGraw three times in a four-game series.
50 Cards in all, packaged as usual in a clear plastic case suitable for display.
Because of the Greenberg cards, this set may become a "collector's item"...but you can't just stash them away!! They're made to be enjoyed.
This edition was limited to 5000 sets, and we have about 25 left as cards. Uncut sheets are sold out. The cards are $36. Order now using Paypal.
Created by the Nokona Company to match the "specs" of Hank's 1933 Louisville Slugger, the mahogany-stained maple bats include the Jewish Major Leaguers logo, the Hall of Fame Tribute to Hank, an engraved Hank Greenberg autograph, and a citation of his key "stats", his military service, and his Jewish pride. Bat # 1 was presented to Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson.
