Here is a bunch of silly stuff. Much of it is from my childhood. 1974 was a fun year. By that time I was in full pack rat mode. I picked up the photos in the past 5 years. The signed Brooks spikes were a gift from my dad when I finished Grad school. They are his size and have the have his 44 written on the heel. I have seen pics of him wearing Adidas, Pumas, and Converse but cannot find a pic of him wearing Brooks. The 1975-76 Brewers wore these spikes if you happen to have one I'd love to see it.

Here's one I used to own that I didn't see posted yet:


Sadly, it's in my ever-rapidly growing "No longer mine" folder.

I was fortunate to see Hank Aaron play. My first baseball game was at Crosley Field in Cincinnati in 1965...Milwaukee vs Cincinnati. Hank broke up 0-0 pitching duel in the top of the 7th inning with a solo homerun over the centerfield fence against Jim Maloney...the only run of the game.

Cool story...I saw him play June 18, 1976 (love baseball almanac). He went 2-4 with a double and a homer. My memory swears both hits were off of a young and electric Vida Blue. However, the almanac is much less romantic. The double came off of Dick Bosman and the homer off of Jim Todd. I prefer my version of the story

Interesting, Peter? I would assume the Almanac is correct, but maybe we have a mystery on our hands?


Some of my Hank Aaron cards.

I looked up the game 7/11/65. Aaron did breakup a 0-0 pitching duel with a homer over the centerfield fence in the top of the 7th...but he hit a two run homer off Sammy Ellis. Braves won 2-1.
