What is The Card Album?
The Card Album is my personal collection showcase. I originally designed my first website, CardMagnet.info, from scratch in Microsoft FrontPage and used tables to organize things. The site was updated regularly 2009 to 2021. I’m proud to say that I had regular viewers from around the world, and my content was frequently in the top results on Google’s web and image results. The time came to put some new tools and ideas to use, and so TheCardAlbum.com was born.
About My Collection
I’ve collected a little bit of everything over the years. With over 500 players and coaches from the University of Miami Football program represented, I believe my Hurricanes card collection is the largest one in existence. Along with Canes Football, I also enjoy collecting local natives and sports teams of the Greater Johnstown, PA area. You’ll also find various other baseball cards, hockey cards, football cards, and non-sports cards from my collection pictured on this site.
About Al "Flip" Rosen
Al Rosen (February 29, 1924 – March 13, 2015), nicknamed “Flip” and “The Hebrew Hammer”, was an American baseball third baseman and right-handed slugger in Major League Baseball for ten seasons in the 1940s and 1950s.
Al Rosen played football at the University of Miami in 1943. Following service for his country in World War 2, Rosen returned to Miami to finish his B.B.A. degree in 1948, but never actually played baseball at Miami. He went on to Major League Baseball and won the 1953 American League’s Most Valuable Player Award and led the Cleveland Indians to the World Series.
