June 4, 2012More Vintage Sports Press Badges and Press Passes – 1940 Major League All-Star Game and More!
So, I promised you more of the press badges from my grandfather’s collection, and here they are!
If you missed my last post on this, my Grandpa Art worked for the Associated Press in the darkroom and as a photographer. He had an enormous collection of famous photographs and memorabilia from Chicago from 1938 to about 1960 when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and had to stop working.
A lot of his memorabilia was destroyed when my parents had a flood at there house a few years ago, but on a recent trip to their house I found these vintage passes in a cigar box!
So, enjoy! There is one more set coming up next week as I finish scanning them in. Oh, and if anyone has any suggestions for displaying this collection, let me know!
