Just received a stack of 1964 Topps Venezuelan cards in the mail today. Still haven't solved my scanner issue, so posting from my phone. Sorry in advance for the not so great photos...
I owe everyone a bunch of Black History Month posts - I will be tinkering with some combo of phone, old broken laptop, and new laptop to try to get the scanner reconnected. I've had plans to talk about:
- The Birmingham Black Barons (think Willie Mays, but also Piper Davis and Artie Wilson among others) ,
- One of the lesser known / underreported baseball families (The Hairstons) ,
- MLB Labor pioneer Curt Flood,
- The Cool Papa Bell book I just finished,
to name just a few ideas I have cooking. I wanted to post more this month but I find using my phone to be about 150% less enjoyable for blogging. I might instead try to find appropriate dates throughout the year to post those, since Black History can and should be celebrated all year long!
