Features all 13 2005 players (including 6 "rookies" since the 2003 All-Star break), newly discovered old-timers, Jewish stars from the Women's League of the '40s, the Israeli National Team, pioneers on and off the field, and much more.

This 55-card set is a follow-up to the hit 142 card original series of 2003.

There are 13 cards in the set to recognize the Jewish Major Leaguers from 2005, believed to be the most to ever appear in one season in history. These players include Shawn Green, Brad Ausmus, Mike Lieberthal, Al Levine, Scott Schoeneweis, Jason Marquis, Gabe Kapler, John Grabow, Kevin Youkilis, Adam Stern, Craig Breslow, Adam Greenberg, and Scott Feldman. The set also includes "newly discovered" Jewish players of the past, including Hall of Famer Lou Boudreau (whose mother was Jewish), Jose Bautista, Left Weinert, Jacon Atz, Bob Davis and Jacob Linvingston.

Four women who played in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) have cards of their own – Thelma "Tiby" Eisen, Anita Foss, Blanche Schachter and Margaret Wigiser. (The tale of this league was told in Penny Marshall's film, "A League of their Own").

This is a perfect gift for adults and children and a most unusual bar or bat mitzvah present.

Handsomely packaged in a clear plastic box was printed in a limited edition and sells for $36 plus $5 shipping and handling, was produced by the American Jewish Historical Society in partnership with Jewish Major Leaguers.
