Credits & Thanks

By Patrick Mondout

Producing a 200+ pages section on sports cards was quite a task, but I had help. In particular, I'd like to thank former Fleer photographer Lou Sauritch. Mr. Sauritch began in baseball as a freelance in 1976 in Southern California and became of one baseball card manufacturer Fleer's first photographers after responding to an ad in 1980. His photographs appeared on countless cards from 1981 to 2003.

Lou has been generous with his time and was very helpful to me while I was creating the baseball card section of the sites. It was a real treat to listen to this man tell stories about the game he covered for nearly three decades with his camera. If you want world-class pictures of your little leaguer, check out his website!

I'd also like to thank former Yankees and Topps public relations man Marty Appel. He was also most generous with his time and his insight into the world of Topps was invaluable (how many guys with both an Emmy and a gold record can you say that about?). Learn more about this remarkable man and his PR firm at his website.

If you are a Yankee fan or followed baseball in the Super70s or Awesome80s, you owe it to yourself to pick up his book, "Now Pitching for the Yankees: Spinning the News for Mickey, Reggie and George." After all, how could a book by the former spinmaster for Steinbrenner not be entertaining? It's out in paperback and available from

Thanks also to Len Shelton, the Public Relations and Marketing Manager of Donruss, for taking time out of a particularly hectic week for him to take time to work with me on the "Fleer Tops Topps" article.

Lastly, I need to thank Jay Johnson for filling in the holes in collection of scans of cards for the site. I have a respectable collection of cards, but not everything I needed. Double J has been buying and selling cards on eBay since 1997 and never failed to have a card available to scan, no matter how obscure the set.

Thanks to all!
