Within the 1982 box, was a scorebook and a large binder.
It appears I had drafted my own league and playing some kind of version of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Not sure if to keep it or toss it, since it isn't in that good of shape.
I tossed it out a few years ago ... It was quite an accomplishment to get them to send it to Germany (I sent dollar bills to pay for it), and I played out the 1984 season, every single game.

I made it through late August, it took me several years but at some point I didn't play anymore

But it was tremendous fun to play it, it definitely was worth every single cent
I'm going to have to meet my Maker some day.
And if He asks me why I didn't let this boy play,
and I say it's because he's black,
that might not be a satisfactory answer.

Happy Chandler, 1947
