Here’s an actual rain check, issued by the American League Baseball Club of New York. It reads: “If 4 1/2 innings are not played, this Check may be exchanged for any other game this season. If punched, it can be exchanged for the value of 55 cents only.” Photo by Datkatz, via Photobucket.
Do you have that pizzaz we need? Do you see vintage designs and get a little sad inside that everything isn’t like that? We’ve amassed an amazing following of likeminded people who love looking to the past for inspiration for the present. We want to increase the amount of daily inspiration we put out there, and we need your help.
If you fancy yourself a blogger and have a good eye for design, send us 2-3 examples of posts you would create and a little about yourself. Email Vintagemeohmy @ gmail.com

p.s. Did you know that in one of the episodes, it’s revealed the ACME Corp. is owned by Road Runner Inc.?
