BIDDEFORD (AP) — After all that weekend snow, some folks may be dreaming about warm weather and baseball.

The second batch of century old baseball cards from the so-called “Portland trove” is going up for sale this week.

Troy Thibodeau of Saco River Auction Co. in Biddeford says collectors will be bidding on about 800 cards. Among them are plenty of Cy Youngs, Ty Cobbs and other Hall of Famers.

The cards range in age from 1909 to 1911 and feature color lithographs on the front and a tobacco advertisement on the back. There are so many of them they’re being auctioned in installments.
