    Don,

    Paul died over 20 years ago. Nobody ever did anything with the stock business. Wally Baldwin, of Middletown, Ohio, tried selling the sweaters but quit after a couple of years. Neither of Paul's sons were like Paul, they were very much like their mother and had no interest in sports. I used to shoot with Paul when I lived close to him in Hamilton, Ohio. One of the most interesting people I ever knew.

    I did not know Paul sold sweaters but still have 3 sets of his wood 2 model 12 and one 1100 set. Those were the days his stocks were pre Anton and the old prices were a give away by todays standards. I still prefer his stocks over Anton and I have several sets of each. Pauls had a nicer grip and palm swell other wise they are the same in style.

    The last 10 years of his travels, Paul also sold vests & matching or contrasting pants. His wife got a deal at a major double knit mfg. Florence owned 5 dress shops which is why Paul could make so many shoots.
