Default Carmelo Deportivo

Any chance anyone ha gone through the sets to identify the players by US team, where applicable? Just kind of curious how many and which Negro League players are in the 1945-46 and 1946-47 sets.

I don't know the answer, but I'd like to know. For some time, I've been searching for minor league cards from the 1950s of guys who played in Negro Leagues. Mothers Cookies and Remar Bread have some good ones. Here is my one and only Carmelo Deportivo, and the player definitely made it to the majors. I got the card from a major dealer who didn't realize Minnie's first name is Orestes.

Here's a HOFer from the set:

International Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2007. Bio:

"Born Carlos Conde in 1908. Conde began his career in sports as an announcer for Cuban radio in 1929 and developed a strong following at CMQ radio in Havana. He also wrote sports news stories for a variety of Cuban daily papers including Diario Nacional, El Crisol and Diaro de la Marina.

He soon ventured into boxing promotions and operated shows at the Palacio de Deportes and Ciudad Deportiva. Conde's involvement in the sweet science expanded and he soon managed a stable of top boxers. After relocating to Miami following Castro's rise to power, he famously guided the careers of Cuban born, Mexico-based Hall of Fame champions Ultiminio (Sugar) Ramos (featherweight) and Jose (Mantequilla) Napoles (welterweight).

In the mid-1970s, Conde returned to broadcasting and worked as a sportscaster at the Spanish language WFAB and also wrote a newspaper column titled Sports Cocktail."
At ten all I thought about was card collecting. At twenty all I thought about was women. At thirty all I thought about was success. At forty all I thought about was money. Now all I think about is retirement...because all I want to think about is card collecting!

Thank you Brian and everyone! I managed to pick up four cards and am pretty pleased. Got Raul Navarro (1945-1946), Henry Kimbo (1946-1947), and two places that played exclusively in the Cuban League.

I recall reading a book when I was a child and one of the characters was shown some Negro League cards, and I remember thinking how cool it would be to have one. Glad to now have a couple to look at and eventually show to my kids/teach my kids about.
