The follow-up to the 1951 release that included multiple sports, 1952 Berk Ross Baseball ditches the non-baseball subjects and pushes the checklist to the next level.

Mickey Mantle is the top card in the set and other appealing Hall of Fame options include Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams.

1952 Berk Ross Baseball Hit Parade of Champions Set Details

Again featuring the "Hit Parade of Champions" title, 1952 Berk Ross Baseball cards are larger and the photo quality is better in comparison to 1951 Berk Ross. The 2" by 3" cards share a strong similarity to the 1951 Bowman Baseball design, including several of the same player images. The most notable example of this is Mickey Mantle, whose 1951 Bowman rookie card image is prominently featured in the Berk Ross set. However, the colorized black-and-white photos feature a tint that gives the cards a darker appearance and diminished clarity.

The 1952 Berk Ross Baseball card fronts are little more than an image, black frame and white border. Some cards feature the player's name in white cursive text.

The backs are quite simple, as well. A thin black frame, more or less aligning with the front, encloses basic player information. While Berk Ross is not specifically referenced and no copyright date is offered, the stats are noted as being from 1951. The cards are also not numbered.

The overall 1952 Berk Ross Baseball checklist seems to confirm the 72-card was distributed around the New York-area as the New York Yankees, New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers are heavily covered and many of the other MLB teams have just one representative, if any.

One main difference for the set is that while the 1951 edition was sold in panel form, the 1952 product was issued as individual cards. The basic printing process, however, appears to have remained the same given that the cards showcase perforation remnants on both the top and bottom.

Although there is not much complexity to the release, a few errors and variations are in play. Nellie Fox and Ewell Blackwell are matched to the wrong backs and there are two different poses available for Phil Rizzuto (bunting and swinging).
