Murray Olderman is one of the most prolific journalists and sports cartoonists still working. Meet the man who wrote many of the little cartoons on the back of your 1950 and ’60s Topps cards…and some of more recent vintage.
Murray Olderman was–and still is at age 84–a sportswriter. He’s run with Rocky Marciano. Followed Jack Nicklaus around the golf course in his first pro tournament (quick trivia–how much was Jack’s first paycheck?—-$33). His long career continued with several books including one that’s just coming out called "Mingling with the Lions".
But he’s equally talented as a sports cartoonist/artist. He wrote some of the cartoons on the vintage Topps cards and was called back into action by Topps for their 2005 Gallery set.
