Top 25 Baseball Birthdays (according to v3) by Vvvergeer (Last updated on Jan. 14, 2019)

Sometime late in 2017, I started paying attention to the birthdays listed on the site. Then I decided I wanted to make a list of the top 10 baseball birthdays, completely subjective, of course.

So here they are.

Methodology: Well first, I used this site. Thank goodness for whomever thought to put "HOF" in red for those players. Because, otherwise, this would have taken forever. I cruised through every day of the year, looking for the red HOF. If I found an "anchor" Hall of Famer, I'd look through the rest of the list, looking for other HOFers, but also all-stars, league leaders, players and managers who had an impact on the game. Then I listed all those players for the dates that seems promising. If there was just one "minor" HOFer, that wouldn't be enough to look at that date more carefully. One "major" HOFer, and I'd check it out. Two HOFers and I'd look closely. Remember, in the end, I cruised past every baseball player who is listed in this database.

But THEN I stumbled into the fact that Baseball Reference has sortable lists of every player born on each day -- sortable by WAR! So I basically started the whole project over and reviewed every...single...day...to see what players had the highest WAR on each day, and I listed the top candidates. I got down to about 60 days pretty easily, then cut it to 41 without a lot of trouble, then found my way down to 25, which I then arranged in "order."
But first, I searched for a similar list on the internet. To my relief, I didn't find one, really. I did find a list of baseball birthdays by total war of all players, but I didn't consider that as a factor.

In the end, I basically looked at the top three WAR for each date, and then checked to see if other significant players were also born on that date. I didn't give a ton of credit to dates with one player with a huge WAR, but no significant other stars to back him up. Think Babe Ruth, Cy Young. There is probably a slight modern slant. I decided to focus on players, but used other prominent baseball figures as tie-breakers. (Think Marvin Miller.)

These candidates dates are just my opinion. Feel free to argue. Or to research better dates.

As to the cards I picked, if I had one of his cards in my collection, I went with my favorite of those, otherwise, I just picked what I liked. Just so I don't have to state whether I have the card every. single. time, if it's 1969 or later, I definitely own the card.

All stats from Baseball Reference.com

Picking a top 25 wasn't too hard. Ordering them 1 to 25 was almost random silliness.

I've been working on this list for a long, long time. And now I've finally pulled the trigger. So without further babbling, I present my list of the Top 25 Baseball Birthdays.
Enjoy.

10,000 Miles(tones) by BeChristensen (Last updated on Jan. 14, 2019)

Logging 10,000 cards is a feat in and of itself. I knew when I started logging cards onto TCDB that I wanted to keep track of certain milestones. It feels like I've been trekking many miles with my fingertips entering in each of these cards. For each 10,000 cards entered I will do a milestone post. Nothing fancy just a few words and a date.

Beckett's Top 80 of the ‘80s by GPAJOE (Last updated on Jan. 14, 2019)

This is the list of the top 80 cards of the 1980's from the January 2019 issue of Becket Baseball issue #154. This list was put together by the Beckett staff.

Summer League Autographs by BeChristensen (Last updated on Jan. 11, 2019)

These are Autographed in person cards from the NBA's Summer League in Las Vegas. I plan on doing this trip for years to come. This list could get big.

WCW Hall of Fame by stevejrogers (Last updated on Jan. 11, 2019)

Started by the company in 1993, and was held annually at the Slamboree PPV in May, and the event was given the "Legends Reunion" brand name. Along with the in-ring ceremony, there were other dignitaries brought out to help honor the inductees.

Dropped after 1995, presumably to concentrate solely on the current product, which was white hot in the midst of the nWo angle. It was never resurrected. It would appear that the WCW Hall was attempting to be more "all-inclusive" to the sport than the WWF's, which was created at the same time, and concentrated on the inductee's time with the promotion. Only a few inductees, like Dusty Rhodes, Ole Anderson, and Wahoo McDaniel had made HOF caliber impacts (both in and outside of the ring) on the territory (Pre-WCW it was Jim Crockett Promotions/Mid-Atlantic under the NWA brand)/promotion through the years.

As far as I know, the honoree plaques were on display at the CNN/Turner headquarters in Atlanta. It is not clear what became of them since the WWF purchase of WCW, and all of its assets in 2001.

Perfect Games by deegsteach (Last updated on Jan. 9, 2019)

Cards highlighting the pitcher-catcher batteries for all 23 official perfect games and 3 unofficial ones. Most of the cards are from my collection, but I added some wantlist cards that were specific to the events. Also, couldn't find an Emil Gross card who caught John Ward's game and Ron Hassey is the only catcher to have caught 2 perfectos - who knew.

Vladimir Guerrero - the Topps Collection by Handsome Wes (Last updated on Jan. 9, 2019)

A look back at the career of "Vlad the Impaler" - a 2018 Hall of Fame inductee - and currently the only member to represent the Angels franchise (more on that later) - as told by his Topps cards.

500 Steals by deegsteach (Last updated on Jan. 9, 2019)

All players who have compiled 500 or more stolen bases in their careers. I chose cards in my collection and ones that show career steals stats on the reverse when possible.

Favorite "hits" by switzr1 (Last updated on Jan. 8, 2019)

Hits of favorite teams, players on favorite teams in their old uniform, and wrestling. Autographs, relics, manufactured relics, and numbered. I will put them in a better order next time I'm at my computer.

Milwaukee Brewers TTM Baseball Card Autographs by ntlwhlr (Last updated on Jan. 7, 2019)

A list of the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Cards I have received via through the mail autograph requests. They are sorted from earliest card years to latest.

As with any TTM, I assume them to be authentic, but never 100% sure. A few were in person autographs vs. TTM and they are noted as such. I'll continue the list with additional autographs as they are received.

A Thank You to all the Players Who Are Kind Enough To Respond To Fan Mail and Autograph Requests.

My Collection of Players Associated with Quirky Trivia by Vvvergeer (Last updated on Jan. 4, 2019)

Got an excellent addition.

The more I collect, the more interested I've become in getting a bit more free-form. Collecting all the Topps sets is nice, but other quirky "sets" are more fun.
Especially when I'm buying vintage cards, where I'm likely to only buy one card from the set, I need some reason to buy one card over another. I go for Cubs, but I don't know any of the non-stars from each other. So how to decide? I do a little research and find the cards of guys with quirky trivia attached to them.
Here are a few of those cards.
As always, feel free to suggest others. I'll probably want to buy them.

1956 - My Birthyear Team by Sportzcommish (Last updated on Jan. 4, 2019)

This is simply a team I've put together from the 1956 Topps Baseball set to mark the year of my birth. If I ever get card #130, then Willie Mays will replace one of the outfielders, otherwise this is it.

Baseball RCs (or XRCs/FCs) Still Needed (Post-1980) by Sportzcommish (Last updated on Jan. 4, 2019)

I have an extensive player collection and in the era of multiple card companies, i.e. no longer just one RC per player, these are the players whose rookie cards remain on my Want List. They are listed in chronological (then alphabetical) order.

Nebraska State League MLB Players by bpoday (Last updated on Jan. 4, 2019)

List of all players that have trading card that played in this league (Class D league from '56-59) For most of these players, this was their first stop in the minor leagues. I believe most cards in this set reference the Nebraska city/team on the back of card. I grew up in Kearney, NE and Kearney was the Yankees team but this was 15 years before I arrived. Love all things Nebraska!

My 4th Place Fantasy Football Team - Zeke FTW! by yokonashiwa (Last updated on Jan. 3, 2019)

This year I played Yahoo! Fantasy Football and finished in 4th place. Not much to brag about, but considering Yahoo! predicted I would finish in 11th out of 12 teams, I would say not bad. I finished 7-7 after a 5 game losing streak in the middle of the season. This is my final roster and not the team I initially drafted.

Players depicted in a uniform & hat for a team they used to play for and is different from the team name on the card. No airbrushed caps here.

Red Sox A-Z by AnalogKid (Last updated on Jan. 2, 2019)

This is a rather large project I'm working on. To have a card of every player featured on a Red Sox card. The cards I've selected aren't necessarily the card I want. They are there to represent a player.

Roy Halladay - the Topps Collection by Handsome Wes (Last updated on Jan. 2, 2019)

An eight-time All-Star and a two-time winner of the Cy Young Award (once in both leagues!), Roy Halladay was one of the best pitchers in the early 21st century.

In a few weeks, he'll be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. In honor of this prestige, I'd like to take a look back at his career - as told by his Topps baseball cards.

Prominent Detroit Tigers for each Uniform Number by dsorek (Last updated on Jan. 2, 2019)

This is a list of the best Tiger rated by impact to the team during their tenure as a Tiger for each uniform number 1-99 (if worn). This is in my opinion of course. I've tried to add the card that shows them at or near the end of their time with the Tigers for the stats on the back which means I often chose a Topps card.

Please feel free to leave me your thoughts on this list.

2018 Card of the Day by Billy Kingsley (Last updated on Dec. 31, 2018)

2018 marks my 30th anniversary in the hobby. To celebrate, I am going to try and get at least one new card every single day of the year. To ensure this works, I have been stashing cards for this project since 2015! I didn't get to celebrate any of my other big anniversaries since I didn't stop to count how many years I had been in the hobby until year #26. On days where I get more than one card, the first card of that day will be the card of record, shown here in this list and in a monthly wrapup on Cardboard History.

Serial numbered cards added in 2018 by Billy Kingsley (Last updated on Dec. 31, 2018)

I have a major SN addiction. I love them. Whenever I get some money on COMC, I usually sort by SN and then just add as many different cards as I can before I run out of money.

Reds in an Era: 2014-2018: The Rebuild by TheToddFather21 (Last updated on Dec. 31, 2018)

After making the wild-card playoff game in 2013, things began to fall apart for the Reds. They fired Dusty Baker after the 2013 season. After loosing 98 games in 2014, the Reds began to trade off players, Mat Latos and Alfredo Simon for younger players, Anthony DeSclafani and Eugenio Suarez. At the trade deadline in 2015, the Reds went all in with the rebuild, trading ace Johnny Cueto, and Mike Leake. The players on this list is the core players of the 'rebuild era.'

Autographs added to my collection in 2018 by Billy Kingsley (Last updated on Dec. 30, 2018)

I enjoyed documenting the "special" cards I got last year, so I will continue to do that. Autos were the smallest list last year, so I will be curious to see how it pans out this year.

New people added to my collection in 2018 NHL only by Billy Kingsley (Last updated on Dec. 30, 2018)

Last year, 2017, was my first collecting the NHL. I will collect the sport for the rest of my life, but I'm still in the early stages. I already have about 2500 different players in my collection, let's see how many more I add in 2018

New people added to my collection in 2018 by Billy Kingsley (Last updated on Dec. 30, 2018)

NBA and NASCAR only. I'm still too new to the NHL so they get their own list.

vrooomed's Most Wanted Phillies cards by vrooomed (Last updated on Dec. 25, 2018)

As a collector of Phillies cards, I have a pretty sizable collection starting with some 1951 Bowman to present day. I decided to go after all Topps cards during that timeframe, as well as the Bowmans up to 1955. This list is starting with the 3 I'm missing from the 1960s that is keeping me from being complete from 1955 to present day and I'm adding to the list going from 1954 back.

Houston Colt 45s Team Set Needs by Sportzcommish (Last updated on Dec. 24, 2018)

I was able to complete my 1964 Colt 45s team set in 2018. So now let's move on to 2019!

Simply a fluid want list in my quest to collect every Houston Colt 45s card from at least major brands. For any SP and High #s I'm willing to trade for lesser quality.

Japanese Minor League Players by fedoratipper (Last updated on Dec. 22, 2018)

Right Team, Wrong Uniform!? by stevejrogers (Last updated on Dec. 22, 2018)

There are many players with lengthy careers with a single franchise, and plenty of those have been with franchises that changed uniform styles, colors, or both as frequent as styles tend to change.

But there are a few long tenured players whom seemingly spent their entire time with a franchise that made only one or two different changes.

And sometimes, whether its just before the sweeping change to a long standing uniform style happens, or the player's last year or so was played after the franchise made a change from a long standing style; it does seem weird to see the player in a different style, even if its all with the same franchise you'd associate the player with.

Note: This does not include any Retro/Turn Back The Clock/Tribute sort of one time only or an alternative style for specific home games.

As well as returning players as managers, coaches, Spring Training Instructors, etc.

Or, as often was the case, a card depicting a retired player in an Old-Timers Day, or like event, clad in the team's uniform style of the day.
