2010 Phungo Cards - Judy Johnson

2010 Phungo #42 Judy Johnson

Judy Johnson is a Negro League Player from Delaware. He was active with 5 different negro league teams between the years of 1918 and 1936. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1975.

The Wilmington Blue Rocks (KC Royals Class A affiliate) play on Judy Johnson Field @ Frawley Stadium. The Statue you see on the above card is in front of the Stadium.

The Card number is #42 in honor of Jackie Robinson. The Picture was taken after a Double Header between the Blue Rocks and Lyncburg Hill Cats. I had gone to see Mike Moustakas and Pedro Alvarez play 3rd base for each of the clubs. Neither player was remarkable that day as the pitchers were the highlight.

For another great custom card of Judy Johnson check out the Infinite Baseball Card Set. In addition to producing a fine custom card Gary has also added the usual quality biographical information that he brings to every post.

I always enjoy learning the history of the game and seeing the creativity that other card bloggers bring to the table. In an era where we find the baseball card designed by the sole authorized producer can be sometimes wanting, it is good to see that the card collecting community can provide some interesting and quality alternatives.
