“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


1946-47 Propagandas Montiel
Frank Overmire

Before about two weeks ago, I had never even heard of Propagandas Montiel, let alone seen one of these super-thin Cuban cards.

So when this example was up for sale on eBay I had to have it.

From what I know, there are 180 cards in this set. The majority are baseball players — along with a few dozen boxers, a couple of wrestlers and a tennis player.

Even if this card isn't the most attractive in my collection, it is unique.

It also reminds me of Cuba's rich baseball history.

I love running across cards like these. It shows me that there will always be something new to discover.
