Dr. James Beckett was selected as the winner of the 2022 Jefferson Burdick Award, which honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the baseball card hobby, by SABR’s Baseball Cards Research Committee.
For an entire generation of collectors beginning in 1984, cracking open the latest Beckett Monthly was a ritual as exciting if not more than ripping actual packs of cards. Which new players made the Hot List? How much did the year’s most expensive rookie cards go up? Instant access to the latest prices, which almost always went up, rarely down, surely had its drawbacks. What collector of a certain age doesn’t regret trading away a prized Sandy Koufax or Henry Aaron for high numbers Todd Zeile or Donruss Eric Davis rookie?
After nearly four decades as the CEO of Beckett Inc., Dr. James Beckett built what can rightly be called a multisport hobby empire, one that today includes publications, grading services, livestreams, a marketplace, and a large, vibrant collecting community.

Each year, SABR’s Nineteenth Century Research Committee selects its Overlooked 19th Century Base Ball Legend — a 19th century player, manager, executive or other baseball personality not yet inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
The winner is typically announced at the Nineteenth Century Committee’s annual meeting at the SABR convention. The Hall of Fame’s Early Baseball Committee, which votes on eligible candidates for induction whose greatest contributions to the game were realized prior to 1950, is next scheduled to vote in 2030.
- 2022 nominees: Click here to learn more about the 28 Overlooked Legend nominees for 2022, and a brief explanation of their baseball accomplishments and/or contributions to our national pastime. If you are a member of the Nineteenth Century Committee and did not receive a ballot to vote in the preliminary election, please contact Adam Darowski or Joe Williams. All SABR members will be eligible to cast a vote for the winner later this year.
SABR chapters and committees are encouraged to set up virtual meetings to stay engaged with our members throughout the world at SABR.org, as part of our Stay Home With SABR initiative to assist in limiting the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
