B7999, this image is from a Play Ball game, the figures are cut out in relief I photographed them on a blank paper, your question about Parcheesi, is from the late 40s or early 50s, when I have time I will look for them to see if you have any information about the manufacturer.

¡Hola, Roland! Gracias por mostrar esas figuras de Almendares / Habana, y todas las fotos anteriores,
alfileres, decantadores, insignias y platos también, ¡magníficos!

Estamos confundidos por estas figuras de Almendares/Habana, ¿están jugando piezas de un juego?
¿Elementos de exhibición de pie? No podemos imaginar cómo se usaron ...

Saludos --

Leon, I always try to please everyone and those players that I saw play in Cuba in the 50s, and I know they feel happy seeing their things that has happened to everyone, on a regular occasion of Monte Irvin's visits to my house Each time for more than 5 hours, they saw things that they had never seen, Max Manning's daughter saw on their tours that they did not talk about her father and she thought that no one knew him in my house, show a lot of her father, photos, balls signed, autographs, cards etc and she got excited every time she saw something, and was happy to see that I took care of her things, that has happened with all the players of that time, some deceased, others are still alive, but they all became great my friends. Ramos wrote me yesterday the following "Thank you for saving those memories because otherwise we would be forgotten, thank you, thank you." Now I will show a weekly program and score card from 1959-60 that I show Ramos along with others of him, I remember that when I entered the Stadium my father always bought them and gave them to me, I keep many of them.

Other photos, continuing the other thread, in one we see an image of what happened, and Almendares decided to take Strike out of the game to please McGraw since they had not played for more than an hour and more than 15,000 spectators were restless, as the game continued. Almendares won the game with his pitcher Bombin Pedroso, in the other photo McGraw is seen at the end of the game getting into the car.

Connie Marrero
 
3 Attachment(s)
Conrado E. "Connie" Marrero Ramos. Pitcher for the Washington Senators in 1950-1954. 39 wins and 3 saves in 5 MLB seasons. 1951 All-Star. After long and successful career in Cuba, he made his MLB debut at age 38 in 1950. His best season was 1952 as he posted a 11-8 record with an ERA of 2.88 in 184.1 innings pitched. When he died in 2014, he was the oldest living MLB player.

From Marrero's SABR biography: To aging North American fans, Marrero is remembered exclusively for his five brief seasons with the American League also-ran Washington Senators, the team he joined in 1950 as a grizzled 39-year-old rookie. It has often been reported that Washington owner-manager Clark Griffith erroneously believed Marrero was born in 1919 instead of 1911 when he signed him on, but that part of the legend is probably only apocryphal.

Marrero was nonetheless anything but a novelty act during his Washington years, featuring one of the league’s most devastating curves and claimed repeatedly by manager Bucky Harris to be the most valuable “stopper” on an otherwise lamentable Washington mound corps. “Connie Marrero had a windup that looked like a cross between a windmill gone berserk and a mallard duck trying to fly backwards,” once noted Dominican slugger Felipe Alou. But it was always the issue of his age (more even than his huge cigars or funky delivery) that remained the Cuban’s most notable calling card.

For stateside partisans whose memories stretch back a full half-century, it is nearly impossible to separate Marrero from nostalgic memories of one of the Fabulous Fifties’ most charismatic yet inept teams. Marrero seemed, in fact, to epitomize Clark Griffith’s entire stable of sad sack Washington Senators. There was plenty of raw talent to be sure in the magical arm of the fire-plug-shaped Cuban right-hander—as there was in those of fellow countrymen and Washington teammates Camilo Pascual and Pedro Ramos—but the more entertaining story for beat writers and their readers was always in the end his oversized Havana cigars, his laughter-provoking slaughtered-English phrases, and his whirling-dervish high-kicking delivery while launching the league’s most tantalizing slider and curveball.

The stogie, the thick Spanish accent and the elaborate windmill windup were trademark realities that merged rapidly into all-too-familiar stereotypes. In the large scheme of things Conrado Marrero was little more than a blip on the screen of baseball’s golden age fifties so dominated by names like Mantle, Musial, Williams, Spahn, Mays and Banks. But from yet another perspective, the American League Washington Senators and the whole enterprise of big league baseball were themselves, in turn, but a mere blip in the baseball-playing career of the seemingly ageless and remarkably durable Conrado Marrero.

George very good what you published Conrado Marrero. You can write a lot about Marrero, he was an idol in amateur baseball and also in professional baseball in Cuba, in MLB, I think that if he had played in better teams his record would have been better, he also started at 39 years old, he said that The first time he faced Ted Williams strikeouts, he was the manager of Almendares, he lived 102 years, now I show you the first Marrero card from the collection La Ambrosia 1943 played for the Cienfuegos amateurs team.
