Posted By: Kenny Cole

He was one of the early authors, Harold Seymour being the other one who comes to mind, who sent me to an earlier baseball era -- an era both good and bad. I always wanted to talk to him about his impressions of those people who were involved in the series whom he was fortunate enough to interview and get answers from. As I understand it, many of the participants wouldn't talk to him.

I wonder how his book would have been influenced (if at all) by the Grand Jury testimony that has since come to light. In any event, he did a great job with what he had and I salute him for that.

That's a good old age. They needed a color man up there anyway. RIP

I was reading his obituary this morning and learned he was born in 1919, which seems only fitting.

I also discovered he lived in Cedarhurst, NY, the same town in which I was raised. However, I never heard this before and I'm surprised nobody ever mentioned him as a favorite son.

Not a card but a great piece nonetheless.

Like you, Asinof's book played a big role in my interest in early baseball. When I was a little kid, I found some stuff in my grandfather's basement relating to the White Sox circa 1917-19. That led me to 8 Men Out, which took me to Glory of Their Times, and from there to collecting T-206's.

Steal away Steve. If you'd like a better one drop me an email and I can see if the scanner can do any better......likely not knowing my prowess .

It's funny after seeing the movie I tried like hell to find the book and the only place that had it was my local Libary. I checked it out and then managed to "lose" it. I still have the book and I honestly feel that is what got me into pre-war cards then and draws my interest now.

That being said, you opened a can of worms as I really needed a reason to dig these all out and I enjoyed scaning them, I hope you enjoy them too

Attells





W514 Strip Cards



T-206
I also have a few other backs on Burns, but I haven't spent the time making a full list of all the different backs for these three.



Schalks

I have had that autograph since the beginning, I think I paid $15 for it.


Cracker Jacks

The Ciccotte was in a CSA holder and crossed fine to SGC. One of the first cards I spent real money on $150 or so .



Boston Stores
I would love to add to these as I am missing a few :-D



Lastly Joe Jackson plus. The Ciccotte and Schalk I have had again since the beginning which is unusual for me as I was out of cards for 10+ years and just never sold these. Wish I kept the CJ Cobb and other Jackson I had.



Looking for 1915 Cracker Jacks and 1909-11 American Caramel E90-1.

One aspect of the movie that I felt was unfair, was making Attell out to be a sort of Joe Schmoe sidekick. He was quite the opposite .........
