About this Item

N.d. (1964). Pink pictorial wraps. Unpaginated (24 pp.); profusely illus. from photos, line drawings. Bit curled, some wear evident at spine, fr. wraps mildly dog-eared, top & bottom, despite evidence of numerous enthusiastic hands, a wonderfully preserved example of this ultra-scarce program. The "Cuties" created by the remarkable Trino Palacios, toured the world playing their own peculiar brand of softball for nearly fifty years, with a percentage of ticket sales from each game going to local charities. They played every game 'in drag', for laughs (?). Although the cast of characters varied, Mr. Palacios remained at the helm throughout the team's history. Copies of these programs were printed in small batches, the adverts changing from town to town and being highly ephemeral few copies have survived. The contemporary mind may wonder about the sexual orientation of men who travelled around the world every summer donning make-up, women's underthings, dresses, evening gowns & nighties (& womanly 'gag' names) every summer for nearly 50 years. Size: 6" x 9". Bookseller Inventory # 002028
