APBA CEO John Herson just passed this announcement to me regarding the APBA Game Company’s new release of the 1960 and 1964 baseball season card sets.
At the time, the 1964 baseball season, which culminated in a memorable seven-game series between the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals, was considered a good one, but over the years the series and the season have taken on greater stature. Some World Series may have featured more great players--though two Cardinals and three Yankees from the '64 teams eventually made it into the Hall of Fame--but not one has featured a more fascinating collection of vivid personalities, individualists who left lasting imprints on the game and who go right on being an important part of it today.

The 1964 baseball season didn't happen just so David Halberstam could come along and write about it, but it certainly seems that way, especially 30 years later.
