    He played for the Louisville Colonels in lower level ball, which is probably where the nickname originated. Also known as the Kentucky Colonel.

    Nice oddball pickup!!

    Yep. "Midge" was a pioneer as the first female in a baseball front office. She was the first person to create season tickets too! Mr. Wrigley had a lot of faith in her and reportedly her opinion on free agents was highly valued. She lived in my town, Huntley, and is buried here. The Cubs created a park for her a few years back. The photo I picked up is from a 1931 Cubs Picture Pack.

    Hey everyone... would love your opinion on this card. I picked it up MANY MANY years ago in a trade deal with other cards and I just set it aside not to think about it anymore.
    When I got it, I wondered if it was "too good to be true"... again, I put it aside and never thought about it until recently when I went through my cards. Thanks for your opinions.
    PS: it's not a reprint 100% sure on that.

    Always looking for Chris Young 1/1s... (Chris Young drafted by the White Sox, then to Arizona, then to the A's, then to New York, Boston... where next? LOL)

    My guess is that is good. The facts that it is at a slight angle and rough cut at the bottom, makes it seem authentic.

    The family member I knew also lived on the family farm in Huntley. I asked him to write his thoughts and memories down about a woman he showed a great deal of fondness for but he has yet to do it. I need to keep bugging him because he would always tell some great stories about her.
