Thanks, Ben

And, your right.... there's very few of these Super-Slugger Pin-Ball machines still in operation nowadays. I still remember a certain Pin-Ball arcade on the Asbury Park (NJ) boardwalk,
that had the Super-Slugger machine which was quite a treat. Since most of the BB Pin-Ball games along the Jersey Shore were the smaller (simpler) Williams machines.

I collected coins, stamps and bb cards as a kid. I gave away all my cards in the early 60's to a friend and just six months ago gave my stamps and coins to my son.
This past spring I took up wood turning on a lathe and enjoy making lidded boxes and hope to advance to wine bottle stoppers and bowls.
I enjoy golf but don't have much time for it as most of my time is spent practicing, playing and traveling for senior softball. I was inducted into the National Senior Softball Hall of Fame in 2011 and in 2014 to The Legends of Softball Hall of Fame.
This is only part of my softball awards:

About 10 years ago my love for baseball postcards crept over to collecting postcards of my hometown Lincoln, Nebraska. I have about 6,000 different Lincoln cards, and amazingly I still find one or two per week that I don't already have. I keep them in binders in 4 card sheets. Lately a seller on ebay has started listing a collection of Lincoln cards that are just amazing, many of which I'd never seen before. These days I tend to get more excited about these types of finds than I do finds for my baseball collection.
Looking for Nebraska Indians memorabilia, photos and postcards

What year is that Monte? I had a 1975 and would love to have one again. But, after having 3 Mustangs and an old tractor, I realized I wasn't much of a mechanic!

Besides cards and other sports collectibles, I've been into most mainstream hobbies at least a bit.
Stamps, coins, currency, comics, old bottles and insulators, beer cans, a few toys...
I also do a bit of woodworking and metal working, and I'm learning leather working (rented a workshop with a leatherworker friend so I may as well )

One of the less mainstream hobbies is old racing bikes - plus others that I happen to like.
This one is a bike built for motorpacing probably in the 1920s or 30's. Probably a Bastide, but it could be a US builder. It was raced in the NYC area, and crashed heavily at some point.

This one's a bit more modern, it was built for the US team time trial team for the 1984 Olympics. I haven't researched enough yet to know if it was ridden in the games. 12 were made, and supposedly 11 of them were identical while the fourth was for a particular rider.(Only four team members, so a 1/3 chance) It was pretty much just a frame when I got it, and since most of the parts were special or specially modified I had to make them.

I'm still into stamps, but have mostly focused on the Official stamps used from 1873 till the early 1880's
This one is my big find so far, printed from a special plate (#40) on an experimental steam press. There was a small amount of clear information about the use of the plate published in 1902, and a description of how to identify the six different plates was published in 1932, and then the stamps from the two steam press plates just about vanished. To the point that some experts thought the 1902 info might have been a mistake (Luff - the author did make some mistakes) Until I found this one with a portion of the plate number showing. No others have turned up since then, but a few without the plate number are probably identifiable because of this stamp.
