Produced with support from the New York State Department of Education, the 1979 set of 72 Supersisters baseball-type cards highlighted accomplished women from all fields. The cards featured athletes, scholars, business leaders, and politicians. One, Maryland’s popular Representative Gladys Noon Spellman, was known for her ebullient personality and strong support of federal workers. Like all the Supersisters her “stats” appeared on the reverse, including professional accomplishments and items of personal interest. According to the school teacher who originated the Supersisters idea, more than 15,000 sets of the cards were sold.
