Wallet Card at Chemical Bank

First off, some sad news - former Mariners pitcher Robert Ramsay passed away last month. He shared his baseball card stories here in 2011.

Now, on to the subject of today's post. Some recent construction on 52nd street revealed an old sign for Chemical Bank & Trust. One the third-largest bank in the world, Chemical Bank disappeared twenty years ago when it merged with Chase Manhattan Bank.

  1. Two things:

    First, I love when construction reveals old signs that were chiseled into the facades of buildings. Some great old names and even some real beautiful looks get revealed.

    And two: holy hell Donnie Baseball is taking a beating in your wallet.
