Sepia Saturday 136 (post your posts on or around Saturday 28th July 2012) will coincide with the first full day of the 2012 London Olympics.We are all about to be buried under an avalanche of sport; drowned in a tsunami of bulging muscles, pounding trainers and in-flight javelins. Two sports you won't see featured at the Olympic Games are those trans-Atlantic rivals, cricket and baseball. Here on Sepia Saturday we don't want them to feel left out and therefore we will spotlight them here. The illustration comes from the A G Spalding Baseball Collection which forms part of the Flickr Commons collection of the New York Public Library. So off you go : sport, bats and balls, trans-Atlantic rivalry : you can throw the theme wherever you want to and, as always, you can hit it right out of the stadium if you want to. Post your post, link your link, and don't forget : try to take a trip around the rest of the bases.
Looking forward, things continue to be seasonally sporting here on Sepia Saturday for the next couple of weeks. Here's a quick preview.
So get ready for the greatest festival of old sporting photographs ever seen on Sepia Saturday. You have just seen the opening ceremony - let the games begin.
