In Which We Achieve a Certain Measure of Fame

When I first started researching the Brews, information and memorabilia were hard to come by. Finding anything meant scouring antique stores, flea markets and garage sales, and of course only in Wisconsin.

eBay, of course, changed all that. Even from my home in New York, I can compete for Brewer artifacts with collectors in Wauwatosa and Walker's Point. To that end, I check in with the auction site from time to time, to see what's new.

It was on one of those window-shopping trips that this 1939 pocket schedule caught my interest:

The starting bid is a bit high, but that's a very sharp piece, with Baseball Centennial graphics on the back and a gorgeous picture of Brewer radio announcer Alan Hale at his mic.

Check out the seller's full description:

How could I resist a custom-tailored pitch?

Thanks for the kind words, "packdynasty". I'd love to oblige but with my three kids I'm not doing a whole lot of eBaying these days.

On the other hand, perhaps one of my readers might be interested in picking up this schedule. If you do, send me a scan, would you?
