I swear, there's some honest-go-god blog material coming this week and next, but while I'm working on that enjoy a trip in the Way Back Machine and check out some stunning old ads for Clevo sporting events. The one to the right is for the Cleveland Rosenblums, and honestly, how could you pass up a chance to see them play after checking out the form they're displaying here.

Below and after the jump there's plenty more, including Marion Motley's bar, Browns all stars playing basketball against Alabama State, and a nifty tip on how you would know when the Indians were playing back in the day just by looking at the Terminal Tower.

(All images come from this absolutely fantastic Flickr photostream.)
