About Grouchy:
21
years selling cards online. Before that, owner of Space City Cards
Comics & Coins on Main St. in Houston. As a kid I loved baseball and
football, and collected cards starting in 1959 – that’s 60 years, but
it feels like yesterday.  I have bought and sold millions of
sports cards over the years. The kids who used to frequent my card shop
named me the “Grouchy Old Man” because I had to keep them in line.  The
nickname stuck. I’m not that grouchy anymore. I have over 100,000
online transactions, with an average feedback score of 100% over the years.

ABOUT DOC TALLY:
Doc and the rest of the bearded ballplayers traveled the USA during the
20s and 30s playing exhibition games against all comers.  When not on
the road, they played home games in their own stadium at Benton Harbor,
Michigan.  The House Of David was a religious commune there.
Doc Tally is also credited with being inventor of
the famous House of David “Pepper Game” – and he also served his club as
their ace knuckle ball pitcher. Unsurprisingly, House of David insiders
for years considered Tally to have been their greatest player.
The back of this card contains an ad for a real .22 pistol that could be ordered by boys.
Wow! Those really were the “good old days” when a “perfect for boys” .22
caliber pistol could be mail ordered for $17.95!
Of course, the kids just used them for target practice,
shooting squirrels out of trees, and the old lady’s cat from next door
when it trespassed into their own back yards. If it didn’t want to die,
the damn cat never should have invaded the kid’s territory. – Besides,
it was just a cat. – Right? – And more than that, remember, it was only a
single shot pistol! – If the kid was a lousy shot, the cat had a better
than sporting chance of getting away before the kid could reload!
