Daily Conlon: 1 through 9

I'm gonna start a new feature at Blue Heaven and it's something I've been wanting to do for quite some time. The Charles Conlon set of cards produced by The Sporting News is my favorite set of all time. It features, exclusively, photos from the master when he use to roam the fields during the golden age of Baseball. His photographs are famous and recognizable to just about any Baseball fan. Heck, even if you've never heard of the man, you know his work.

The Conlon set consist of an incredible 1,430 card distributed as 5 separate series over a 5 year period starting in 1991. I have been fortunate to gather up the first 4 series of cards (numbered to 1,320), but have failed to find a reasonably priced series 5. Unfortunately, it happens to be the hardest to find. Nevertheless, I will, hopefully daily, post up each 9 card page of the set that I have for you to enjoy. That means I have an easy 147 posts coming up of just scans.

So, sit back and enjoy the first page of 9 cards. It features everybody from the greatest batter of all time, Rogers Hornsby, to one of the greatest pitchers of all time, Walter Johnson.
