Posted By: <b>ramram</b><p>I've got a few to share but here is a recent one that I picked up. It is an 1895 Spalding scorebook of the Hagerstown team (a very good team that played teams from MD and PA but I'm not yet sure which league). The item of interest is that they played three games against the Cuban Giants (top Negro League of that period). One of the players is Hall of Famer Frank Grant. <br /><br />Rob M.<br /><br /><img src="http://home.kc.rr.com/ramram/scorebook%20cuban%20giants.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Zach Rice</b><p>Rob-<br /><br />Did you recently pick that up in an auction ? I was browsing through different estate/local auction houses and came across a very similar item a few weeks back. Either way, congrats on a great piece. Hagerstown items always have a special place with me, my father's side is all from there and most still reside there.<br /><br />Zach
