  1. Amazing, guys. Thank you so much for all of this information. It really helps color this thing a lot more for me. Like, seriously. To be honest, I have no idea whether I could find out whether Linares had one of these cars, though I imagine it's not out of the realm of possibility, especially considering his status as a baseball magnate on the island. But yeah, there aren't any books about the man that I know of, just mentions of him in some books about baseball in Cuba (and even those are hard to come by). Now, on the notion of being even more off-topic and obscure, mi
  2. Could very well be, Spinneyhill. Good call.
  3. Holy balls, I love this forum. Thanks so much for all of the great answers, everybody. Seriously. Martin, I do paint things directly from photographs - mostly from single images, but sometimes I have to combine many sources to make one original image. For the most part I stick to baseball.

  5. Hey all, I'm totally new to the forums, and was hoping that I might be able to get a little help with a strange question. By day (and let's face it, by night), I'm a painter who focuses on historical baseball subject matter. Much like car enthusiasts, the folks who study the game have a love stretches back to its earliest days, and whenever its heroes or ballparks are depicted, they are scrutinized for their historical accuracy. As a result, I pride myself on being as meticulous as I can be with such details. Primarily, I work on commission, and a while back
