Name a more iconic card from the 1952 Topps set.

Yesterday I shared the 1952 Topps Minnie Minoso card I purchased this past Saturday at The Batters Box card shop. I picked up a couple other 1952 Topps cards. Here is one of them.

Other than the Mickey Mantle card, this Gus Zernial card might well be the most iconic card from this set. It's certainly an image that is hard to forget. The "Philadelhia" Athletics slugger, wearing a pink undershirt, featured with with a bat with 6 baseballs attached.


The story behind the photo is alluded to on the back. Gus hit 6 homers over 3 consecutive games to tie an A.L. record. He would hit another the next day to set the record at 7 in 4 straight games. Oh and if you are wondering, Gus's eyes are blue.


 What do you think? Aside from the Mantle, is there a more iconic card from the set than this Zernial card? And yes, I know there is a Mays card in the set as well.

  2. In terms of "commons" I suspect you're absolutely correct here.

  4. If we're not listing off superstars... I'd say the Pafko. When I was a kid, I owned a copy... but traded it for a 1987 Fleer tin set and some rookies. It's possibly the worst trade I've ever made.

    By the way... I love this Zernial. Picked mine up 3 years ago:

  5. it is definitely one of the most recognizable cards from that set, and one that i had hoped to add to my "sampler" way back when but could never find one at the right price for me. instead, the a's were represented by a nondescript dick fowler card.

  6. I agree about the Jackie Robinson. But I also think of both the Willie Mays and Eddie Mathews as well. The Zernial is definitely great if you have already seen it though. Probably one of the best "commons" of all time.
