Tomas Gutiérrez 1923-24
1 Attachment(s)
Today I will show you some of the "Tomas Gutiérrez" cards this collection is of great rarity and great players appear, some from the hall of fame, but there are several irregularities in the numbering, in my catalog I give a broad explanation of the errors, for example the case of the card that should have the number 59 and they put 58 A on it, some players who made them two cards with different names etc. Now I show you a scan of a group of cards from the Santa Clara team.

Exhibitman 06-27-2021 05:35 PM

I do know of the Aguilitas; Siki (a Hall Of Famer) is my type card. What I've been trying to get more information about for years are these:

Examples from these sets have come up for sale once, and that's it. The Turquinos were a Dempsey and a Tunney. The Baguers were several cards that came from a seller in Switzerland. The Caruncho card I saw once and then never again. To give some idea of scale on the Baguer cards:

Exhibitor I am going to try to answer you the questions of the boxing cards, but that is not my specialty, I will look for some information, I will send you some of the 1915 postcards of the Johnson and Willard fight and Kid Chocolate.

Now I show you part of a scanned test sheet of the "Cabañas" 1909 series of cards, of the Detroit team, around I put some of the cards already printed

Exhibitman 07-02-2021 11:48 PM

Those are very interesting items.

There's actually quite a bit of Kid Chocolate material around, relatively speaking. He was very popular. My favorite is this one:

Roland 49 07-03-2021 07:57 PM

1 Attachment(s)
That photo of "Kid Chocolate" is very interesting, propaganda for the "El Sol" tailor shop, perhaps the most important in Havana, I have read that Chocolate was one of the best dressed men in Cuba, and years ago I read in a US magazine. that in New York it was considered one of the most elegant in dress, now you will see a print with the player Oscar Sierra propaganda of "El Sol" in the Stadium del Cerro, there was a billboard that announced said tailor shop and the player who hit a homerun on this, you are presented with a check for $ 100.

Exhibitman 07-03-2021 10:13 PM

There was a similar ad in Ebbetts Field for Abe Stark. It announced, "Hit Sign, Win Suit. Abe Stark. 1514 Pitkin Ave. Brooklyn's Leading Clothier." Any player who hit the sign on the fly would get a free suit from his store.

That's a really interesting El Sol piece. I have never seen another Kid Chocolate.

Roland 49 07-04-2021 03:54 PM

1 Attachment(s)
The photo of Chocolate that you showed from "El Sol" is extraordinary. I had never seen it, previously comment on the ad sign of said tailor shop, now you will see a photo where the players Yiqui de Souza and Willy Miranda appear and you can see something of the ad on the nearby, the letter OS, from El Sol, appears and next to it is "Anatomical Tailors" in Spanish.

Pelotaris vs AAA
1 Attachment(s)
In September 1954 before starting a game between the Richmond and Sugar King teams, there was a tribute to veteran players and then a competition between "Pelotaris" and players from both teams, one with the bats and the other with the "baskets" between Jim Melton and Bob Habbenich against Manolo and Pepe Guara with the baskets, the competition was very emotional but one of the Guara brothers bounced the homerum ball through the center, and the other against the fence.

Roland 49 07-09-2021 05:54 PM

Pedro Formental in a AAA game, playing for the Cuban Sugar King here at the Estadio del Cerro, hit a homerun between right field and center, against another team in the League, but the umpire of second was stopped in 2nd base, the center ran to catch the ball but hit the fence and fell collapsed in the grass, when the pitchers of his team that were warming up in the bullpen fell, they came to help him, but ... one of them put a ball in the glove, at that moment the umpire of 2nd goes towards them and when he arrives he sees the ball in the glove and sings out, and in that a tremendous problem was formed and shouting among the public in the stands, the homerun ball was picked up by a child and I put it in his pants pocket, but those who were around asked him for the ball to show it to the umpire, and one of those present gave the boy 60 cents and said: look with this money you buy a new ball at the stadium store and handed it over and showed it to him to the North American umpire of 2nd base but he had it in his hands and returned it to the public and sang out again, the fight continued but the end result was that Formental, despite having run all the bases, was left without being told the homerum Now you will see a photo of Bobby Maduro owner of the Sugars, Formental signing the contract and Regino Otero manager.

A few days ago I showed you some Billiken cards of professional league players, now I show you some of the Pirates and Matanzas teams that I scanned at my house many years ago, shortly after they went to a collector in the United States, I think that currently they may be in the collections of any member of net54

tlwise12 07-14-2021 09:13 PM

I have an example of the Teran and Tolosa in my collection!

Roland 49 07-15-2021 03:29 PM

1 Attachment(s)
Travis, you have two magnificent very rare cards, Teran's is another different copy than the one I showed, there is a photo that next to Teran is Dihigo and next to him is Pita, their cards are known, but Dihigo's until Today it has not appeared, it is a mystery perhaps it was printed, and it may one day appear, now I show you some more of the series that I scanned years ago, when you see them tell me to show you something strange about these players.

tlwise12 07-15-2021 07:41 PM

What is something strange?
Curious to know what the strange aspect is to these players?

Roland 49 07-15-2021 09:55 PM

Extraño = stranger
2 Attachment(s)
Travis, maybe I should have said a rarity instead of something stranger, in Spanish "strange" means something unknown or little known, a strange person or thing has the same meaning, another example: a mother misses her son, it is because He has not seen it for a long time and he always thinks about it, and he has other examples but we are not in a grammar class, in English I do not know what other meaning it could have, remember that my English is poor and bad, which I am going to show you that It is a rarity it is a card of A. Tolosa at the time that he was a professional player, and part of a photo where all the players of the Pirates team appear and on the far right you can see Dihigo, notice that in the uniform of the players in one appears a letter P, in another a C and a P, Club Pirates, Dihigo a white pullover, in the complete photo Dihigo has a bat in his hand.

Ty Cobb 1910 Habana
1 Attachment(s)
Now I show you a photo of Ty Cobb in Almendares Park in 1910, that photo has been known for a long time, but that photo was mine for several years, before going to the USA, what you may not know is its origin, that photo belonged for 50 years to one of the players of that series I refer to Rafael Almeida, since he died in 1960, and one of his grandchildren among the things that he sold me was that photo, on the back it was written in pencil "Ty Cobb Almendares Park 1910 "

Cabañas cigars
1 Attachment(s)
The Tobacco Factory "Cabañas" is considered the first registered by Francisco Cabanas in 1810, at that time the "Tobacco Tobacco" law was in force and it was not until June 23, 1817 when the King of Spain Fernando Vll, put an end to that law, but Francisco Cabañas was the only one who ventured before that abolition, now I show you 2 series of cards, the one from 1909 with players from Almendares Habana and Detroit and another series with illustrious Cubans, you will see Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, father of the country and Jose Marti and General Antonio Maceo, I do not have a printing date of this series but I think it was published more or less in 1909, this collection is quite numerous in terms of cards and I show 3 examples and the reverse I took those photos today.

Cuban House of David 1931
3 Attachment(s)
I received an email in which they asked me about the Cuban House of David team, that was about 20 days ago, I do not remember in which of my emails and I decided to answer it through the threads, perhaps this will be one of my last messages, since I think that what I am publishing is not of interest because they do not ask me questions either for or against, I have published images in some unique cases, I do not know those who see the threads, at first they asked me and I always gave them an answer, a few ago days I thought to close, but Leon sent me a message of encouragement which he thanked him a lot and continued to publish, now you will see some images of the team in a panoramic photo but I edited it because it was too long and you will see part of the photo and some close-up images.

Butch7999 07-25-2021 02:14 AM

¡Santo Moisés, Roland, no te detengas! En serio, usted podría abrir un museo

Roland 49 07-25-2021 11:40 AM

B. 7999, I thought you no longer saw my threads, the last thing you wrote to me was on May 14 and I replied that day, then on May 20 I wrote you again and I sent you a photo of what you asked me for and I wrote you saying that when you saw you let me know, more than 2 months have passed, and yet I have seen your messages in other threads, I always try to help those who ask me, sometimes they ask me about the thread and others to my emails In my threads, I have met people who I consider interested in Cuban baseball, and I try to help all of them, I believe that some have learned something with my writings, but I have also learned something with you, and I consider all those who see my Wonderful people threads, although I do not know those who see it, only those who send a message. In the message you sent me in Spanish you tell me "don't stop, go on" and I will tell you that with the greatest of my wishes I will continue to do so, but I have tried to keep putting things that I consider important and sometimes unique and unknown things and nobody says anything , neither for nor against and I think that what I am publishing does not interest any of you, with all the complications that I have, I always look for a time to look for something of interest to you, and you do not say anything, and for me it would be a I encourage you to write something or ask me, if you read this message you let me know, greetings.

Hey Rolando

Just so you know I thoroughly enjoy all of your posts. My favorite area in collecting is Negro and Cuban baseball.

Please continue to post anything you want!

All the posts are much appreciated.

Hola Roland! Nuestras disculpas - hasta que usted mismo lo citó, justo ahora,

Butch7999 07-29-2021 11:46 PM

Roland, todo está bien- ¡no hay disculpas necesarias! (Aunque pasamos media hora

Yesterday I sent you some photos of the Niagara Club founded in 1939 and another of the awards ceremony of a girls cycling championship, but a few minutes ago looking in a Sports Almanac magazine with the uncut cards, I found this advertisement for the Niagara Bicycles founded in 1902, address etc, in the same magazine, I think this is an important piece of information for you, write to me when you see it.

Butch7999 07-30-2021 12:50 PM

Hola de nuevo, Roland! Gracias por esos mensajes muy interesantes con respecto a las bicicletas Niagara.
Estábamos interesados principalmente porque somos de cerca de las Niagara Falls, y habíamos pensado que
tal vez Niagara Bicycle era un fabricante local desaparecido desde hace mucho tiempo (por supuesto que
no lo eran, eran cubanos, similar a la
"Havana Barbecue Sauce", que se hace en South Carolina).
Pero esas son fotos y artículos interesantes en cualquier caso!
Gracias de nuevo! (¿Algún material más de juego de mesa?)

I have to review the complete thread to see what I have shown you, because when I was looking for what you wanted and you were more than 2 months without responding, save everything, but when I have time and review I will look for you, so as not to put the same thing again Once, now you will see 3 ashtrays with a baseball theme, although these are used to hang them on the wall and so I have them in my house.

Butch7999 08-02-2021 05:34 PM

Gracias, Roland - muy agradable! Tenemos un cenicero similar al tercero (más a la derecha) en su imagen,
pero sin la figura del jugador y no hecho para colgar! El conjunto de tres en su foto es maravilloso.

Butch7999 08-04-2021 03:01 PM

Hola Roland -- gracias por mostrar eso! Cosas muy interesantes.

El mazo de Almendares no parece ser un mazo estándar de naipes. ¿Es un juego de béisbol jugado con cartas,
o es una baraja estándar decorada con imágenes de béisbol? ¿Puedes contarnos más al respecto?

Además, ¿cuál es la imagen que mostró en el post #292? ¿Una placa? ¿Una pegatina?

Look, I think it is a normal game of cards with figures of the emblems of Cuban baseball, for example in the mold you see small scorpions that is the symbol of Almendares, I have them from the 4 teams if you want I can send them to you so you can see them, Now you will see a card from the Almendares of Casa Vasallo these are 40 decks 10 for each team I think it is the Spanish deck that is played with 40 cards.

Brian, now I read your message and I answer you, currently due to covid19 there is a complicated situation since the beginning of this year, only 10 numbered catalogs have been printed, of these 4 are Cuban, 3 are in the United States that were sold on ebay and There are 3 others that I have waiting to be taken away since February, but nobody has been able to come to look for it, not to mention that some friends of mine in the US have asked me Puerto Rico etc. The first to arrive takes them and then I will send more to print, I think that the covid situation will soon normalize, if the first one to arrive in Cuba is the one from Spain then he will sell them on ebay

You have shown 2 excellent cards, Charleston and O'Neill, yesterday in my other thread I showed you the scan of your Lloyd de la Mallorquina card along with others from Almendares when that card was mine a few years ago, I don't know if you saw it, now I show you a photo that I took to my catalog of a fragment of one of the sheets of the Sports Almanac collection and you will see O'Neill, on the uncut sheet in a block of 8 Cards.

Hola Roland, gracias! Sí, el juego de Parchi De Portivo es uno de los pocos con los que estamos familiarizados,
pero nunca hemos podido identificar al fabricante. ¿Sabes quién fue el fabricante, o el año de producción?
Saludos cordiales --

Wasn't there a rare recent Babe Ruth Cuban card discovered??

You ask me that a new Cuban card of Babe Ruth was discovered, well about that I don't know anything, I would have to see the photo, you have that image, can you show it to me?

From the Cuban baseball memorabilia, now I show a bottle of the Habana team drink, it is from my collection to have its original painting and it is in my very good state of conservation but it has a very special characteristic and that is that this bottle has never been opened, it has Its cork and is sealed with the factory label on top of the cork and of course it has the drink added since the late 40s. In my collection are those of the 4 teams with their original paint, they were made with pitchers and batters.
