For all the video game consoles installed in American living rooms, nothing can replace a Dad and his boy in the front yard playing catch and no electronic beep carries the richness of a well-thrown ball smacking the leather of a catcher’s mitt.
Baseball Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson is regarded as one of the greatest baseball players of all time. In 1936 he was one of the first five inductees to be inducted into the Vintage baseball cards Hall of Fame. Mathewson passed away in 1925 at the age of 45. Therefore, authentically signed items are hard to come by.
No matter what the price, true or not, there a still a lot of people collect the sports cards for various reason. These people collect in different ways and concentrate on different areas of collecting.
Now, the first step is to find your baseball bats. You can use vintage buing baseball cards Elfers bats that you have collected for this project or even new baseball bats. You can find great baseball bats at Wal-Mart, Target, and almost any sporting goods store. I find them from as little as $5 of the cheap ones all the way to $50 for the collector’s addition.
Whether your child has a friend who has moved or one right next door, consider suggesting that they become “pen pals”. They will enjoy writing letters and sharing ideas and experiences during the summer. My son and his friend who lives out of town both like baseball memorabilia.

After this step, the sweetened liquid moves to a cooler where the temperature is dropped to slightly solidify the gum and is prepared for the extruder machine. The extruder machine will maneuver the gum to achieve a certain texture. When set, the mix is passed through a roller where the gum is flattened. The thinnest sheets are made into stick gum while the thicker sheets are made into candy-coated gum. The stick gum then goes through high powered machines where it is wrapped, packaged and shipped to different candy stores around the world.
Take this concept outside too. For the Fall season, place a small painted old wooden chair on your front porch. Place fall leaves on the seat and then pile it high with a mound of gourds showing the leaves poking out from underneath around the edges of the seat of the chair. Wrap some craft store fall colored berry garland around the tall back of the chair and weave through the gourds piled on the seat.
