Memorial Day Flashback: Wartime baseball cards

Today, we remember American veterans of the world's many conflicts, a day that also has close ties to multiple generations of baseballers. Back in August 2008, the #5 blog profiled a 1975 TCMA set of major league players stationed or traveling in Guam. It featured a lot of vintage names, several unique photos, and an essay (on card backs) that talked about the tour in detail.
