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.

Butch7999 09-03-2021 04:33 PM

¡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.

B7999, how good you published, you are right in the price of baseball and boxing, but at that time the 9c stamp was used more, and therefore the baseball label circulated more, now there is another example from 1966, notice that the baseball stamp is 3c, and that was the price of circulation of the envelopes throughout the territory of Cuba.

Butch7999 10-22-2021 12:22 AM

Hola, Roland! Ah, all right, the "most frequently used" / "most popular" stamp, then, beisbol,
even if it had a lower face value -- we'll allow it.

Roland 49 10-22-2021 06:35 PM

1 Attachment(s)
B7999, regarding the face value we are going to see the 1 dollar bill that has Washington and the Cuban 1 peso bill that has José Marti, these are the most important patriots of both countries and have the lowest face value, in the USA It is followed by the Jefferson 2 dollar bill, and in Cuba the 5 peso bill by Maximo Gómez, the first Cuban bill was printed in 1934, and in Cuba the dollar had circulated since 1898 when the intervention on the island, but before 1959, The dollar and the Cuban peso had the same value, that is, 100 pesos = 100 dollars, although at one point the Cuban peso had 1 cent above the dollar, 1 peso was worth 1 cent more than a dollar, and in Cuba in 1934 the bill The one that was printed the most was the 1 peso one, at that time everything was very cheap and it was the ticket that circulated the most. Now an image of 1 Cuban peso from the 1940s made in the USA by American Bank.

Butch7999 10-23-2021 05:19 PM

Gracias, Roland!! Funny story -- the $2 Jefferson bill is short-printed compared to the $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100
here in the US, and rarely seen and rarely circulated (many people keep one as a curiosity, rather than spend it).
We had a $2 bill in pocket and offered it as payment for a $2. item at an antique store a couple of years ago.
The store owner had never seen one and thought it was "play money" from a board game or some sort of counterfeit.
It took a while for us to convince her it was real. :D

Roland 49 10-24-2021 06:53 PM

B7999, you are right, the $ 2 bill is rare, the first one printed in 1862 but with the face of Hamilton, already in 1869 it appeared with Jefferson, but there are issues of 1874, 1928, 1953, 1976, of this last time I got 4 in perfect condition and consecutive numbering, I have seen people who keep it because they say it is lucky, now an anecdote, a few years ago I visited the Plaza de Armas 1 or 2 times a week and sometimes the Hotel Santa Isabel in the same place of the constructions of the 18th and 19th century, on the day that I went to the hotel to see one of the employees I knew, I saw several people at the door and the doorman would not let them in, as they knew me and if I could enter and now Inside I see my friend standing talking with a person who was sitting at a table having breakfast, I approached to say hello and the one who was sitting was the actor Jack Nicholson, and I greeted him, I stayed for a while and Nicholson came out and immediately people surrounded him who were outside, to ask for autographs etc, in That is why a man takes out his wallet and takes out a $ 2 bill and a $ 100 bill, he was undecided and gave him the $ 100 bill to be signed and so it happened, but he dies at me and asks me: What do you believe? and I answer him: you should have given him the $ 2 that you are not going to spend because you have it saved and the $ 100 insurance at some point you will need to use it, but there was no time, Jack got into the car with the driver and his companions and left,
