Put Up Your Dukes Part II: The Scrapbook!

Thanks to Bob at The Hobby Shop, I was able to take some pictures of the scrapbook mentioned in my previous post, as well as some pictures of the other cards that were in it along with my John L. Sullivan card. Stand by for awesomeness.

 The cover of this leatherbound beauty!

The stencil used to letter the pages.

A few pages of college football clippings from the days before college players were professionals!

The front page of the pro f00'ball section.

From the baseball section, a young man runs out of room to stencil in "Senators".

The back page of the Red Sox section. If you look closely, you can see where the cards were.

That beauty in the center of this pic was one of 'em. Teddy Ballgame! (Also in this pic: '54 Bowman Willie Mays, '54 Topps Ted Williams and to the right of Ted, a '54 Topps Hank Aaron rookie.)

 The Babe!

A little tough to make out (still need to figure out the zoom on my phone), but DiMaggio and Rizzuto are in this shot.

Some Leaf football (Sid Luckman and Doak Walker among them), as well as a gorgeous Namath rookie peeking in from the left.

Sammy Baugh!

And last, but not least, some of the other boxers: Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Jake La Motta and Max Schmeling, among others!
