Jason, something more about Mike González, he had a son, they have told me that his wife and son left Cuba perhaps in the early 60s, he had another wife who took care of him until he died, she stayed in The house with a sister and her nephew, the widow died several years ago, I met the nephew in the 90s and visited the house on several occasions and he also visited me,

Default Mel Ott Tropical Stadium

Yesterday I was checking one of my emails and I see that since the beginning of April none came in, and it seemed strange to me, my son touched something and suddenly many, some from April, from friends, family and members of net54 began to enter, I I've seen some, and I'll answer them little by little, now I'm answering something you want to see from the American Series at La Tropical Stadium, I start with part of a photo of Mel Ott.

Not cards, but I recently acquired a couple of Cuban league team signed balls (Almendares). (1946-47 and 1947-48). Still not familiar with many of the players (although I've been able to ID most of the names).

Haven't seen to many team signed balls so was pretty excited to be able to acquire these.

Now little by little I will answer questions I have, as for Mario Arencibia he does not appear in the collection 'Feliices 45- 46, but if he appears in O. Diaz, Fosforos Acebo "" El Indio, Almanaque Deportivo "etc. the rarest card of O. Diaz and the matchmaker is not so rare.

Stopped by today and talked with Pedro Sierra (at the Philly show) who played for Oscar Charleston with the Indianapolis Clowns in 1954 (right before he died). He was one of the last players to be signed by a MLB team, but never made it to the majors. He came from Cuba at the age of 16 and played until his late 30s at various stops. Honestly, walking around the Philly show for a few hours, seeing all the great cards was a lot of fun, but talking with him for 20 minutes and getting a signed ball was definitely most memorable.

If anyone goes tomorrow look for him set up in the corner wearing a Detroit Stars uniform. Truly an experience I will not forget.

Franco, now I photographed two Méndez cards, although they have the same portrait, one belongs to the second Artistic Series of "Aguilitas 1923-34 and the other to Cigarros Nacionales 1924-25" the card that you show me from Mexico I don't know which series It belongs, but in that country many series were made where Cuban players appear. When you see the photo you let me know so you can see other interesting cards.

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.

Speaking of Kid Chocolate, here is one of my favorite pieces:



Inscribed by HOFer Kid Chocolate to HOFer Cuco Conde, who is a boxing HOF member as a journalist.

Very good that photo of Chocolate, although I have had two, it is difficult and rare, now I am sending you a photo of a Kid Chocolate match card, I think you should have it, maybe you have a complete album of Romeo and Juliet, I had it At the beginning of the 90s, I had more than 300 boxing cards from 15 different manufacturers since at that time I collected boxing cards and I am sure that some of them are part of your collection.

Default Pelotaris vs AAA 1954 Estadium del Cerro

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.

Default Formental homerum - out

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.
