Interested in baseball cards? Join SABR's Baseball Cards Research Committee
Want to learn more about the history and evolution of baseball cards? SABR's newly revived Baseball Cards Research Committee is seeking new members.
The committee's purpose is to encourage more interactive knowledge sharing about the history and importance of baseball cards as a representation of the game itself and to research the history of the relationship between statistics and baseball cards. The committee also provides a forum for discussion on other important aspects of the baseball card industry, such as memorable, important and famous series designs; the influx of new card sets and limited-edition inserts in the 1980s and '90s; documentation on all of the major card companies and important figures in the evolution of the baseball card industry; and research into the evolution of the game as viewed through the lens of baseball cards (batting gloves, player/managers, the DH, record-setting achievements, the steroids era, etc.)
Check out frequent updates from the committee's new website/blog at https://sabrbaseballcards.blog.
