“Neanderthal Man” by the Hotlegs

Neanderthal Man was the lone 1970 hit single by the British rock group, "The Hotlegs".

Baseball Cards

Collecting Baseball Cards have been a hobby of kids, teens and some adults since the early 20th century. Baseball cards were originally sold with tobacco, yet they eventually were taken over by gum companies. During the 60’s to the early 80’s the card company of topps (once a gum company), had a monopoly of the baseball card business. Their packs included some gum and 11 cards. During its prime, topps baseball cards were the biggest fad amongst kids. After the 80’s other card companies began to compete topps, and baseball cards as a whole have decreased in popularity, but it remains a large industry.
