Default Braves World Series PC

Being a big Braves fan, I have always centered my PC around Braves cards (as well as having a small Hawks and Falcons PC). A few months back, I thought it would be a fun project to build the team sets from each year the Braves won a World Series (1914 in Boston, 1957 in Milwaukee and 1995).

Being that 1995 is nowhere near Vintage, I will spare you the scans of those in this thread, however, I have recently added a few from the other title years. So, to showcase my progress, I will update this thread whenever new cards are added (which will not be very often most likely... 100 year old cards are rare and expensive! Grrr!). But, without further ado, here are the scans:

1914 B-18 Blanket Square Hub Perdue



1957 Topps Danny O'Connell, Ed Mathews and Del Crandall




Thanks for the look!

Nice. You need to grab the '57 Aaron... I'd look for a low-grade PSA one if I were you. Just make sure it is centered...

Moving back to the B-18 Blanket portion of 1914, here is my most recent addition:

It would be cool to see those blanket things next to something else like a card or quarter or something to give some idea of scale.

Really neat idea for a collection. I have that Mathews card somewhere.

Apparently, I missed adding this one a few weeks back... so here is another addition:

B-18 Leslie Mann



And, as requested, here is a size comparison. 1968 Topps Phil Neikro as a reference:



So about twice as wide and 1.5 times the length.
