Well here is something that I never would have thought I would collect but these matchbook covers are really something to see I was giving these by a friend there are almost 300 of them I am sure that they date back into the 40's I have one that is a Detriot Tigers Baseball Sch. from 1942, pluse a Hocky Sch. from the same time period. I don't know nothing about matchbook covers are there value I did find the one baseball cover on ebay it sold for 14 dollars. So if anyone could tell me a little bit about these I would appreciate it very much Thanks

    I especially like the Hotel St. Cornelius "A Friendly Place" one. You couldn't post a larger pic of that could you? A lot of those covers would make great t-shirt designs.
