Share your vintage sports photos

 

 

Vintage just sounds cool, right? Old, on the other hand, sounds tired, spent, done. After the success of our online Photo Scavenger Hunt, our sports editor Eric Smith is asking for you to share your old (ahem) vintage sports photos.

This week’s photo on page 3-C features the Peña brothers, Archie, David and Berna during their baseball days in the Bluebonnet League. The ad soliciting these photos features a well known A.D. and former PHS trackster Wayne Johnson.

It’s almost here! Rodeo Riches….that is. The Pleasanton Young Farmers are throwing their big rodeo bash next month so we thought we’d help them celebrate by getting merchants involved. It starts next Wednesday, July 25 and there are lots of prizes to be given away plus a $500 shopping spree! Details next week!
