                                Nothing else has the charm of this vintage stuff

                                I just love the old inks and paper -- the glossy modern stuff seems hollow somehow. And the winter leagues have their own special history.

                                I had the good fortune to visit Cuba a couple of years ago. Even there, these old cards and photos are getting scarce. There was a big open-air market in one of Havana's main squares, for books and other collectibles. Unfortunately, a lot of the items remain exposed to the elements, especially the bright sun.

                                It's a marvelous collection, Jackie -- glad you can share this sight.
