Vintage baseball cards in the Sports section.

My Uncle still reads the newspaper every morning (well most of the time). The Valdosta Daily Times, go figure who the parent company might be (lol). Anyways, day before yesterday right there are the from page of the sports section........

BAM! I had to check this out before he got to the sports pages. This paper puts the Dear Abby and the comics in the sports section which is the only reason he reads the paper. Now, go back a little over a month, late June I had taken my Uncle to the Valdosta Historical Society Museum. Lots of baseball stuff there, and I did see that card along with the others they had. I also pointed out that they didn't have any cards of the 3 Drew boys. I told them I would get them some. I still need to do that.

I did wait until he had his reading done before I cut it up.

I'm not sure if I cropped this right.

In case I screwed up the cropping, here is the full page.

If any Tiger fan wants this just chime in.

Have a great night.


  1. My grandfather "reads" the paper everyday, too. But, he only looks at the headline on the front page and then looks at the TV schedule in the Sports section to find out what channel and time the games are on.
    That story in there about the chewing tobacco and swallowing the juice... UGH!

  2. I didn't read the article... but I read your post. Both of my parents still read the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I subscribed to the San Jose Mercury News up until maybe 15 years ago. Didn't have time to sit down anymore and read the articles, so it always went into the recycling bin.

  3. interesting article! I was able to upsize and read right here. Good minor-league memories! Paved paradise and put up a parking lot...
