Origin of the forum's new header image

Post by fisherboy7 on Tue Jan 22, 2008 6:30 pm

Just thought some might like to know where the forum's new header image came from. It's from a circa 1880's baseball pencil case. There seem to be a number of different designs on these kinds of cases and they're all really cool looking. If you have scans of other ones, please post em here! I've seen a few different kinds auctioned off in REA over the years. Here's a scan of the full box (it doesn't belong to me):



I think the new image gives a more "vintage" feel to the forum than Ruth painting did. We can always change it up again in a few months. What do you guys think?

Here's another header image possibility I was playing with. Of course it would have to be shrunk by 25% to fit the header space. Any preference?

Ben, both of those are really nice. I prefer the bottom one however.

Change them once every few weeks. Keep a folder of 10-20 different scans and randomly switch.

Which one Joe, the current pencil case one or the sunset?

Glad you like it, Joe. I like Mark's idea of switching it up everyone once in a while. I think the sunset image will be next. We all know how Scott feels about sunsets Laughing

very cool piece. I like the idea of rotating pics every few weeks.

I've got the 1865 Brooklyn Atlantics as our header now, and am working on a folder of other early baseball and card images for later weeks. Hope you guys like it!
