Happy 100th Anniversary
As I admitted several weeks ago, I collect cool, often arty, vintage baseball cards, mainly from 1887-1914. Here's a favorite that hit the century mark today, showing the Chicago White Sox in 1913. A couple Hall of Famers in back row (Eddie Collins and "Big Ed" Walsh) and couple of infamous Black Soxers below them, Buck Weaver (played by John Cusack in Eight Men Out) and Eddie Cicotte (David Straithairn).
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
