Default Cooperstown report and BB card acquisitions

Not a big crowd this year in Cooperstown for HOF weekend. The local newspaper estimated only 10,000 were at the HOF ceremonies.
The year Ashburn and Schmidt were inducted, the crowd was 40,000. Recently when Ripken was inducted, the crowd was 75,000.

One of the great aspects of this show are the BB conversations we have with the people that attend. Here is a bit of TRIVIA from a
Midwesterner......

A Centerfielder once caught a flyball in FOUL territory....apparently, this feat has only occurred once in a regular season Major League
game....who is this Centerfielder ?


The BB card Show at the VFW building in town was well attended. I had a very good show buying and selling. I acquired 12 - T206's
with American Beauty 350 and 460 backs.....and, this T201 Cobb/Crawford. This card appears to be a color error, since the blue sky
is virtually missing on the Cobb portion of this card (consequently, the grass and tree are not as green).
