I am completely immersed in the Negro Leagues right now. I have my SOM replay going on, have been reading books, collecting special insert baseball cards and I recently ran across a very cool website. The site is called ‘There Used To Be A Ballpark‘ and it sells custom made drawings of old and new ballparks. I found the site fascinating and quickly found myself wanting to purchase a few items. Hidden deep within the site is a poster that has to go on my wall. The poster is called ‘Legends of the Black Diamond‘ and prominently features eleven Negro League greats that are all represented in the Strat-o-Matic Negro League All Star set. The drawing is a fantasy assemlby at Old Comiskey Park.
I would set aside a little bit of time to peruse this site. I spent a half hour looking around the site and couldn’t believe it went by that quick.
