Default Finally finished -and back in album- Caramelo deportivio

After about three years I have finally finished the 1945-6 Caramelo deportivio Cuban card set ( I did cheat a bit in that I own a 1946-7 Martin Dihigo which is actually a much more rare card with the same photo and I have not been able to justify paying 400 for the 45-6 version- also I am not counting the short print Reyes as part of the set )

Put the cards back in the album via photo corners and an archival scrapbook album. To me the cards in the album look amazing - all cards should have such a mounting option. It just gives a better feel for the time and world in which the cards were issued

Thanks for the kind comments

Seeing the cards in album form really makes you realize how strong some of these teams were
Mariano for example has two hall of famers - Dandridge and Brown both near their primes - another who will eventually be in Minoso - and a fourth Salazar who probably will not make but could make a case and is in the halls of Mexico Dominican Republic and Venezuela. Add Sandy Consugra who went 16-3 in the majors in 54 and Estrelalla who probably have been a star if he was given a chance with a number of negro league stars like Mcdanials and Serrel and minor league red Adams ( who won almost 200 games in the minors ) and you have a team that could have competed well in the majors ( in the war years they might have won the pennant) in fact take a look at the roster for the 1944 browns and tell me who would have had a better seasin
