Happy Halloween, Browns Fans, from Blackie Schwamb

Happy Halloween from the Browns Fan Club!
Halloween greetings brought to you by Blackie Schwamb, from Manager Zack Taylor's '48 squad. As a kid in depression-era Los Angeles, Ralph Schwamb earned his nickname "Blackie" because he dressed in all black to emulate the bad guys he rooted for in western movies.
Honorable Halloween mention from Spook Jacobs, who although not a Brownie, played for two defunct teams: the Philadelphia and Kansas City A's.
