Riddle me this...

Post by t2069bk on Thu Dec 11, 2008 4:56 pm

Is anyone able to provide an easy way to identify what major league team a minor leaguer played for?

The reason I ask is I am focused on T206 and T200 sets, but I dabble in a few type cards here and there. I prefer to have type cards that picture a member of the Cubs on it, but if I want a T210 that is impossible...but I might be able to acquire a card of a player that either did play for previously or will play for the Cubs in a future set.

Short of searching in something like baseball reference player by player, is there a way to determine who someone played for?

Figured I'd post here because this might help someone in the future. Besides this thread looks like it needed a new post (since the last one was in Oct)!

You are better off working from the Cubs roster and then seeing if those players have cards in the various minor league sets. I forget what exact number is, but there is something like 800+ major leaguers in the Zeenut set, well over 100 in t210 and 30-40 in the t209. Then the is the c46 set and other minor league sets prior to WW2

Thanks Jay! I was just hoping there would be something out there to prevent searching rosters and then cross referencing sets. Maybe I should look into getting the Standard Catalog on CD ... better to get a typing cramp than a paper cut!!!!!
