    Where they were once seen at a status symbol, cards now became an important source of revenue for the union and eventually helped players wean themselves away from the need for second jobs during the off-season. Salaries rose under Miller and so did royalties paid to players for the use of their image.

    Before Miller, players were paid $5 for their first Topps contract. When they lasted a month in the big leagues, they received a $125 per year deal. Stay up for two and it was extended. A “bonus” is what Topps called it.

    Players didn’t mind much because each year, Topps’ Sports Director Sy Berger came around to clubhouses and offered players the chance to pick something out of a catalog: a rifle, a TV, a set of luggage. The items were delivered to their door. Just another perk of being a pro ballplayer.

    According to John Helyear’s book ‘Lords of the Realm’, Miller saw the arrangement as just another “blanket screwing of the players”. He thought they could do better if they were organized.

    He was right.

    Miller had already gotten a $120,000 check from Coca-Cola to use players’ images on the liners of bottle caps. Now, he set his sights on Topps.

    In 1966 he met with the company and asked for a better deal. Topps refused and things went nowhere for nearly two years.

    In the spring of 1968, Miller asked the players not to re-sign their baseball card contracts. Already having earned their trust, most obliged and Topps suddenly had no bargaining power.

    On November 19, 1968, the players union signed a new team with Topps, spelled out in an eight-page contract that doubled the players’ yearly fee to $250 and gave the union 8% on card sales of up to $4 million and 10% on sales above $4 million. The first year of the deal, the union made $320,000 and those revenues would skyrocket over the next four decades.

    Today, Topps has again become the sole producer of licensed cards but licensing revenue from the entire spectrum of cards and related collectibles is a huge part of the way baseball business is done.

    Today’s players can thank Marvin Miller for that.

    This is a thread I can have some fun with. I started collecting as a kid back in 1986, and my Reds collection has become one of my favorite things. I'll start with a pic that shows a great memory and the end of 15 years of frustration:

    The 1973 card series is my all time favorite. Great in game action shots.

    73 is one of my favorite sets as well. I have heard Bench hates his 73 card.
