Ernie Banks Baseball Card News

Today's card is another oddball recently added to my Ernie Banks collection.  It comes from a 1982 set put out by Baseball Card News.  The set is not listed in the Standard Catalog, so I had to do my own digging to find out more about it.

There are a total of 20 cards in the set, each featuring a black and white photo of a player.  Its a pretty plain looking card, with no wording at all.  The cards have rounded corners.  The black border on my picture is from the scanner...I left it there so you can get a better look at the corners.

Most of the players are hall of famers from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.  Ernie is the only Cub.    The back gives the history of baseball cards.

I don't have the complete set, but I was able to track down pictures of each of the other 19 cards.  Take a peak...
