Default The Collector Talks, March 1974 _The George Brace Story

I am going through and organizing my hobby periodicals (never done before) so I can know what I have. I know there are many things I have really never seen before, so it's kind of exciting in a hobby-nerdy kind of way. Here is a neat brochure put out in 1974. The George Brace Story by George Brace. (2nd page is larger due to small wording)

Thanks for posting Leon

I had the incredibly opportunity to watch Mr. Brace work and speak to him many times when he was snapping pictures at Wrigley Field in the early '80's. I had a part time job at that time as security for the Cubs and my pre-game "post" was on one of the field gates nearest home plate. He was an exceptional man who did what he had to do and left the ball park usually after batting practice. I wish I had known more about his incredible career when I had the opportunity to speak to him about it but I was satisfied at the time to listen to his Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig stories.

I now wish that his daughter get made whole and receive his negatives back but sadly I am afraid that will now never happen.

Yep, I have that issue too, Leon, along with several other issues of The Collector Talks. The article on Rich Egan in this issue (reprinted from the Chicago Tribune) is interesting too. I have a lot of material on Egan and started working on a hobby history post about him a while back, but other priorities have kept me from finishing it.

Always enjoy seeing the pubs. I am sure some more will be posted soon. I am taking my organizing of my periodicals slowly but surely, I think I only have around 6-8 large brown boxes of stuff left.

Here are the photos/card that are being advertised in the ad. Not sure if they ever got around to offering all of the images they were hoping to. I think I may have 40-50 different or so and the numbering is all over the place. I have never seen any attempt by anybody to catalog the seris but perhaps it has been done. They are on photo/Kodak paper and are 3.5" x 5". Actually really nice looking cards.

Default The end...

Going full circle, apparently it didn't work out for this magazine. This was postmarked sometime in 1980...
