Russ Mannino was kind enough to share some his Racquetball Trading Cards. He was even kind enough to share them 6 times I really dig old school racquetball memorabilia, and think cards like these would be a great addition to the USA Racquetball Museum. Based on the description below, I’m not sure whether these are for sale through Russ’ online store, or if he is just showing off some cool stuff from his collection.

US Junior National Coach Kelley Beane has announced the 2006/2007 US Junior National Racquetball Team. This team will represent the U.S. during the Junior World Racquetball Championships this December.
I am pleased to announce the 2006/2007 Junior National Team. After a week of blood, sweat and tears we have our new team. It is difficult to see the tears when an athlete doesnt make the team, and yet pure joy to see the tears when they do. We have a big squad, one with confidence and they have the talent to back that confidence up. We have training camp Aug 4th-Aug 10th, and until then, enjoy your victories, and I will see you all soon.
