Most of these "Cards To See Before You Die" show off something interesting, rare, or artistic. They don't need to be impossible or unaffordable. You could find this Joe Adcock on eBay for a few dollars.

I post many shots from the 1920s and 1930s, when companies reinvented each year what it meant to be a "baseball card." Art Deco's just one of many styles they tried.

Even if they "can't all be Waners," at least they're all #BucketCards!
