WOW! If I just hadn’t stuck the thing in the spokes of my bike I be a rich man!
I’d like to get out and see some of the heritage ball games that are being played in the area these days. They play with circa 1900 rules and equipment.
Apparently its a considerably different game than we see today.
Maybe our country could stop buying phony Bonds with their phony printed money and start buying baseball cards.
I used to do the same thing in the 50s & 60s, in my 24” Schwinn, with shoeboxes packed full of BB cards from the 40s & 50s, thinking they were junk, passed-on from my uncles. Big frigging DUH on me. The remaining 50s & 60s cards I gave away to younger cousins when I went off to college.
20-20 hindsight; blessed with it all my life...
LOL.....When my 3 boys were young, we’d spend lots of time at card shows....to save myself boredom...I started to collect Carlton Fisk cards. I have the biggest collection in all of New England, I’m told. It’s worthless, I’m sure.
Yeah, I can just see that thing on your penny-farthing bicycle.
