Posted By: <b>Mike</b><p>Leon says things are slowing....maybe this can kick sart some thing. Lou Gehrigs personal health club pass, and a ticket to a party on the ship heading to japan for the 1934 barn storming tour. This ticket to the party belonged to the Mo berg family. Regarding Leons thoughts on memo. I think partly that it is summer, and people are outside doing other things. But please keep this Memo. forum going. I've got tons more to show.<br><img src="http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/Ozzyzoe1/hotdogpart.jpg"><br><img src="http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p67/Ozzyzoe1/lou.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Good stuff Mike....There is a lot of stuff from former players entering the memorabilia market. I have some stuff coming from Hunt's that belonged to Charlie Wagner.<br /><br />I got this photo from the Joe DiMaggio estate.<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Vintage%20Baseball%20Snapshots/joeandbrosSmall.jpg"><br /><br />I have a bunch of newspaper articles and photos from Dick Stuart's estate pertaining to his 66 homerun year at Lincoln in the Western League in 1956.<br /><br />He wrote notations on most of them...He was very sure of himself. On this one he wrote "Fame" on one baseball and "Fortune" on the other.<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Lincoln%20Minor%20League/dickstuartscrap-1.jpg"><br /><br />on most of the articles he wrote which number homerun he hit and then "and not my last".

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Judging from that invitation to the swimming party I'm betting that was one wild night on the RMS Empress of Japan.<br /><br />Gigolos Present???

Posted By: <b>Mike</b><p>On the ticket to the party aboard the ship bound for Japan : "Ambulance service". On a ship ? If I could time travel, I'd love to have been at the party.
