The collection of the 1928 Billiken and La Moda cigars with the Cincinnati players is very rare, now I show you a small part of the photo used for one of the cards of that collection, the ad is shown in the rubber stamp stamped in the photo original file.

Default Catalogo Billiken y La Moda

Yesterday I showed part of a photo that was used to print the 1928 Billiken cards, now you will see one of the sheets of my catalog where this collection appears, below a propaganda photo of the series that measures 8x10 inches, I ask those who see this Thread that they publish the cards they have from this rare collection, I would appreciate it if you would.

Hola de nuevo, Roland! Nuestras disculpas por mantenerlo esperando. Lamentamos saber de los problemas de salud
en su familia, pero nos complace saber que se están recuperando. ¡Usted administra su tiempo mucho mejor que nosotros!

Le sugerimos que podría quedarse sin cosas para mostrar sólo como una broma amistosa, debido a la cantidad
de cosas maravillosas que ya ha demostrado! ¡Esperamos que nuestra traducción computarizada no te haya dado
una mala impresión!

Gracias por el anuncio de
Hit & Run! No habíamos visto ni sabido nada de este juego. ¿Tienes más de eso para mostrar?

Muchas gracias también por el vistazo al juego completo de las tarjetas de Café Vassallo! ¡Fascinante!
Saludos cordiales --

B7999, don't worry, I immediately realized that it was a friendly joke, just like when I was wrong and I posted a photo of the Dodgers and I put one of my 1954 Dodge car, and you said that you were half an hour looking for the team, that It made me laugh, thanks for worrying about the health of my family, it is getting better little by little, every day I have to take her to the hospital for a treatment, a few minutes ago I came back, as for the game Hit and Run I don't have much, Now you will see some small cards with the names of some players, I got them a long time ago and for something that I found out at that time I put the plastic box where I keep that name, but perhaps it was that they really belong to that game, now you will see some with the names, when you see it, let me know so you can see more, greetings.

Hola Roland, gracias de nuevo por un vistazo a estas pequeñas partes peculiares del juego!
Sería muy interesante saber cómo se jugó el juego.

¡Nos complace escuchar que la Sra. Roland está mejorando! Le deseamos lo mejor a ella y a usted.

También nos preocupaba que tú no pudieran continuar su conversación aquí -- leímos en las noticias
esta mañana que hay una nueva ofensiva contra Internet en su país. Nos complace verte todavía aquí!
(¿O no estás donde hemos inferido que realmente estás ubicado?)

Saludos cordiales --

Ralph in your message in Spanish you wrote: 'Rolando, I have read your catalog and I congratulate you. You have done an exemplary job. There is no other volume like the one you have made. This was needed in order to educate the public and collectors in general. I support you in your work. "Now I answer you in English: Ralph, thank you very much for what you say about my catalog, my intention is that everyone knows more about Cuban baseball, and its memorabilia in general and I try to do it with my modest knowledge. Best possible, it is almost 40 years of research that I have dedicated to fulfill that purpose.

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?

Default Botella Habana

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

Default Connie Marrero

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.

Beisbol should not be regarded as one centavo less valuable than boxing.
