Thanks for the advice Roland49
However, i was using the PR cards as an example. In general i have found that searches in net54 often result in poor results. Even if i did a search on topics related to Cuban cards i would get results that never addressed my search topic. In essence i wanted to find out how to more effectively use the search function of net54. Thanks.

Brian, between Rolando and I, you can probably get any of your questions answered. You can always email or call me any time. You have my info. Rolando will probably give you his info as well if you contact him privately. The search feature on Net54 might not be working great, but if you read whatever threads it does turn up, you can probably figure out the right people to talk to.

Is Ernesto still around? Somewhere I have a picture of me with him. Same with Luis Zayas. When I asked Ernesto who the toughest hitter he faced was, he said Silvio Garcia. I asked him who the best pitcher he ever saw was and he said Camilo Pascual. Then he showed me the grip Camilo used for his devastating curveball. I am grateful you introduced us. Good memories.

It's easier to do a google search instead of using the net54 search engine.
For example, google "Cuban cards net54" should yield better results.

Here are pics of your Minoso. I guess the scans were different sizes. Great looking card and so high grade for the series.

León, that is a good card from Miñoso and it is the first that was printed from him in 1945, "Caramelos Felices".

Today in the afternoon they sent me an email informing me that my 3 catalogs were for sale on eBay Cuban baseball, I don't have an eBay connection, and they sent me photos, this week that ended, a friend took those 3 to Spain that he put them up for sale , I inform you that of volume 1, there are only 10 copies, of volume 2, 3 copies have been printed and of volume 3, only 2 copies have been printed, and since they all have a copyright registration number, but they also have its printing number, of all the volumes 001 are mine, and as you can see from volume 2 there are only two more and from volume 3, there is only the one that is for sale, there has been a lot of difficulty due to the covid and the registry offices 11 months closed, on the other hand, the 1st quality materials for the preparation of the catalogs very difficult to obtain, like the inks for the laser printer, now I show a photo that I took a few minutes ago of the three catalogs and some inner sheets, they are something out of focus and I don't know in good, low light and the camera of my old mobile phone.

Default Limonar Martinez

Rogelio B. Martínez Ulloa was a pitcher in Major League Baseball who played briefly for the Washington Senators during the 1950 season. Martínez was nicknamed Limonar, after the modest little town in his native Matanzas where he started to play baseball. In one major league season, Martínez posted a 0–1 record with a 27.00 ERA in two appearances, including one start, giving up four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out none in 1.1 innings of work. Three days before Washington called Rogelio up, he had hurt his knee, and he didn’t tell the club.

From Martinez's SABR biography: This slender sidearm righty appeared in just two big-league games, in 1950. Nonetheless his career is more significant than it appears. “Limonar” – so called for the country town where he learned to play ball – was one of the icons of Cuban amateur baseball in its most glorious, romantic, and competitive era, the early 1940s.

Author Roberto González Echevarría highlighted four pitchers – “revered amateurs and later professionals” – who made it to the majors. The most prominent was Conrado Marrero, who died in 2014, almost four years after Martínez – they were among the last living links to that time. Julio “Jiquí” Moreno, a dazzling flamethrower in his youth, was a distinguished runner-up. Sandalio “Potrerillo” Consuegra had the most success in the US, where he was known as Sandy. These three men and Martínez all started in the big leagues with the 1950 Washington Senators.

On January 14, 1962, the 3rd stage of the history of the Championships for the title in Cuba began, the 1st stage was on December 29, 1878, with the game between Habana and Almendares, which was the first official Game of the history of Cuban Baseball, the 2nd begins at the beginning of 1900, and ends in 1961, with the last game of the Cuban Professional League, in 1962 when the 3rd stage begins with the National Series that year 4 teams compete, Now I show a photo of that opening day where we see the manager of the Havana team, José María Fernández, next to the manager of the winning team of the 1st National Series, Fermin Guerra, who led the Occidentales team and the Prime Minister at that time Fidel Castro.

In the history of baseball in the city of Santiago de Cuba, there were 2 teams Cuba and Central, which were eternal rivals, as in the professional were Habana and Almendares, I show 2 photos of the members of those teams in 1901.

Hi Rolando, Happy New Year, I hope you're doing well.

Since you posted about Central I was hoping you can help me with this team photo in my collection. I know the guy in the suit is a very young Julian "Fallanca" Perez, do you happen to recognize any of the other players or know the possible year this is from?
Thank you for your help and appreciate your time again!

Steve, that photo of the Central team from 1904 is very rare, the one you show doesn't look good, but when I saw it I thought I had one and I looked for it, and it's cooler and the players are better identified, that year 1904 , the teams Cuba, Central and Sam Francisco will play in the championship, in the city of Santiago de Cuba, and each team was allowed to include some of the players from the Professional Championship, I have all the statistics of that championship with the 3 teams, Now I answer your question, you are going to see my photo that looks better, you will see that 3 of the players have cards in the Cigarros Cabañas 1909 collection, in the photo standing, from left to right, the second is Angel D'Mesa, the fourth is Carlos (Bebe) Roger, seated the third is Inocencio Perez, next to Julian Perez (Fallanca) there are other familiar faces in the team.

Wow, do you want to trade photos Rolando? Haha, just joking but yours is so much nicer, mine is very faded which is a shame because I couldn’t really tell if I saw anyone familiar other than Julian Perez.
You say the guy next to Fallanca is Inocenio Perez but if you look you see the player wearing the glove on his right hand which makes him a left handed thrower, and Inocenio was a right handed thrower I believe.
Could this be Chino Moran instead? I’ve always thought this could be him but my photo is so light I couldn’t really tell.
Thank you for your help and I appreciate you showing your photo for better reference.
Steve

Default Sandalio "Potrerillo" Consuegra

Sandalio S. Consuegra Castellon. Cuban-born pitcher for the Washington Senators in 1950-53. 51 wins and 28 saves in 8 MLB seasons. 1954 All-Star. His best season was 1954 with the Chicago White Sox as he posted a 16-3 record with 4 saves and a 2.69 ERA in 154 innings pitched. He ended his career with the New York Giants in 1957.

Consuegra's SABR biography explains how Sandy (and his son) got his name: In 2011 Sandy’s son Rogelio (Roger) told the story. “In Cuba most homes had a Catholic calendar, and it gave the name of the saint for each day of the month. I must assume his name came from the calendar, as all his other brothers and sisters had similar ‘strange’ names". Indeed, the feast day of San Sandalio (St. Sandila, a ninth-century Spaniard martyred by the Moors) is September 3. Roger Consuegra further related, “When I was born my mother refused to name me Sandalio and I was going on the fifth day with no name. That afternoon Rogelio Martínez and Julio Moreno were facing each other, and they agreed I would be named after the winning pitcher. Deportivo Matanzas won; thus, my name is Rogelio.”

Consuegra got his nickname (Potrerillo) in Cuban ball from his hometown. Much the same was true of Rogelio Martínez, who was dubbed “Limonar” for the name of the town where he first played. Manolo de la Reguera, the famous Cuban sports commentator, was responsible for Consuegra’s nickname and those of many other players.

George, this anecdote about Sandalio is very good. In the 60s to 90s, the games of memory between veteran players from Habana and Almendares were held in the United States, now I show two photos of those memorable games of memory, one is from 1981, we see Joe Valdivielso, Rodolfo Fernandez and Fermin Guerra , in the other from 1993, to Rodolfo Fernández, Miñoso and Armando Vázquez.
