My grandpa also spent his high school years on the north side of Chicago. He graduated from Lane Tech High School. The school today is on Addison Street, a few miles west of Wrigley Field. He was the only other Cub fan beside me in our southside family. That gave us a special connection.
Today's cards give me a chance to combine my hobby with my grandpa's.
These went for 30¢ thirty years ago and aren't worth a whole lot more today. They won't pay for a wedding reception. They won't even pay for a bottle of champagne to toast the bride and groom. But they are stamps, so I'm a little like my Cub fan grandpa.
