Note: These cards were created by the late Bob Lemke, a pioneering figure in the bseball card and sports collectibles arena. He was the longtime editor of the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards.His hobby was designing and creating stunning "homemade" baseball cards of many of his favorite players from the postwar era, and producing heavily researched articles for his long-running blog, the eponymous Bob Lemke Blog. His cards were made in extremely limited quantities, often times only 8 or 9 cards to a sheet. Bob Lemke was my friend and his cards are amongst the most prized in my collection. Fortunately, being a New York Yankees fan, I often ordered multiples of his custom cards featuring Yankee players.
