baseball cards from attic

made enough room in the closet at mom’s and put all the baseball cards (I think I got all of them) from the attic in there.  fun to look through some of the boxes and remember going to sam’s to buy boxes of cards, getting home to open all the packets, putting the gum in a jar, and then sorting the cards.  one cool find was a pamphlet from Al Somer’s umpiring school…inside was dad’s original application, a certificate of completion, a nice picture of all the umpire’s that were in his class, and, of course, a letter saying the league he was in was disbanding and therefore he’s out of a job.
