Here is a link to an old color film about baseball and you see a huge billboard for GEM Blades.
Have a look. http://www.wimp.com/yankeesreds/

Thought it interesting, so I posted it.

Fab, thanks for sharing this.

The blades, 5 for $.25, what a deal.

But the important thing is the historic value of that video. I love how everyone dressed for the ball games. And, this was right before WWII broke out.

And the Yankee's swept that series in 4 games by beating the Reds.

If it hasn't been touched up then I am amazed at the clarity and the pure colors of this Gem of a film. (Pun intended)

This was slightly more than six years before I was born so it was a fascinating and nostalgic look at a New York about three years before my parents met in Brooklyn.
