New From The Green Bag: “First 4” Supreme Court Sluggers

August 24th, 2016

Ross Davies and his creative team at The Green Bag continue to impress with creative SCOTUS bric-a-brac. The latest is a series of five baseball cards dedicated to the “First 4” Supreme Court Sluggers: Justices O’Connor, Ginsburg, Sotomayor, and Kagan.

Here is a front shot of the five cards.



The “Thought Bubble Gum” includes a quote from RBG’s opinion in United States v. Virginia:

“[N]either federal nor state government acts compatibly with the equal protection principle when [it] denies to women, simply because they are women, full citizenship stature–equal opportunity to aspire, achieve, participate in and contribute to society based on their individual talents and capacities”


The backs of the cards are tributes to other famous women who blazed trails before the Supreme Court.


The card commemorates Myra Bradwell (from Bradwell v. Illinois) and Belva Lockwood (first female to become a member of the SCOTUS bar, and argue a case).



You can even request a special, limited-edition Belva Lockwood Bobblehead!


The backs of the cards also list the portraits of the four female Justices:


The series is based on a 1935 baseball card.
