Do you remember that feeling you had when you opened your first pack of baseball cards? When I was in Elementary school you could buy a pack of 14 cards and a stick of gum for a nickel. I would slowly open each pack and pour over the player statistics and random bits of interesting trivia on the back of each card. Did you know that Pee Wee Reese got his nickname from his marble shooting days as a boy, Mickey Mantle’s middle name was Charles or that Hank Arron was born in Jacksonville Florida?

Two years ago the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs (FJMC) Sports Affinity Group hosted a Webinar with a baseball card historian and they had my attention. As the seasons changed, webinar offerings were expanded to include sports legends and personalities from football, wrestling, hockey, basketball and more. Many of these and other previous FJMC Webinars are posted to FJMC’s YouTube page.
