Well, these really aren't sepia,
they're soft faded colors of times gone by.
Whose real name, I learned, is Denton Young.
Famous pitcher from the early 1900's,
major league baseball. An award carrying
his name is still coveted by major league pitchers
a hundred years later.
I can imagine that he appreciated receiving
the "receipts of the game"
but how keen was a baseball pitcher
on silverware and floral designs?
