The card above has no name on the back to indicate the reprint source, but it is similar to the Renata Glasso Reprint. Topps in 2005 have a grainier picture.

This set of photos is from one of the first assignments I was given working as a photographer for the NYU student newspaper, The Washington Square News. I didn't stay with the newspaper very long (think it had something to do with a girl!), but this was one of the more interesting assignments. I was never a baseball card collector or even much of a fan of sports of any kind, but the assignment took me and the reporter out to Queens, a borough I had never been to and a side of New York life I had never seen.

If the photos seem older than they are, that's because the shop had that air about it. All the memorabilia gave it the feeling of a living museum (see the vintage car out the door in the photo of Galasso!). Ms. Galasso herself was old school New York.

For those not familiar with Renata Galasso, her business was printing and distribution of baseball cards. She focused on the 2nd tier players and some minors -- the players Topps didn't bother with. She was in business during the 70's and 80's. Not sure what happened (not a lot of information on the Internet about her), but it appears her business ceased in the late 80's-early 90's. There's a lot of information out there about her cards - still actively traded and sought after by collectors.

Based on my Google searches this set contains the only image of Renato Galasso on the Internet.
