    The Australian Society for Sports History produces two main publications, which appear twice yearly. The Society's journal, Sporting Traditions , is a fully refereed journal that promotes the serious study of sport in society. Articles should deal with the economic, political, social, legal or philosophical significance of sporting activity. Whilst most of the articles in the past have been on Australian sport and have an historical focus, articles on other societies and on contemporary sport may be submitted for consideration. The journal also contains a strong reviews section. To submit material to Sporting Traditions , please contact the editor, Dr Rob Hess. The ASSH Bulletin is a biannual publication that publishes local and amateur histories, award winning student essays, short articles and opinion pieces, book and conference reviews and provides information more generally about the progress of the Society. As a courtesy to members, we also publish book notices and include flyers on recent publications in our mailouts to members. For non-members, this service is available at a fee. To submit work to the Bulletin, please contact the editor, Dr Tara Magdalinski. Return to Contents

    Some known ancient cultural relics have provided evidence that health-building activities appeared in China over 4,000 years ago. By the time of the Western Zhou Dynasty (1066-771 BC) archery and cauldron lifting had emerged as sports activities in their own right. To get a complete and vivid picture of the development of ancient China's sports, go to the China Sports Museum, which lies in the southeastern corner of the National Olympic Sports Center in the northern suburbs of Beijing. It is an octagonal spiral building flanked on one side by a huge sloping wall with its highest point protruding out of the center of the structure. The huge wall, 36.5 meters high and looking like a large flag or a mountain peak reaching up to the sky, symbolizes the pinnacle that China's athletes reach for. Displayed in its six exhibition halls are over 1,000 photos, 800 objects, 300 historical documents and cultural relics, 30 sand table models and 20 rubbings and paintings reflecting China's more than 5,000 years of sports culture and many sports activities of her 56 ethnic groups.

    History on the Seabed W ater covers more than two-thirds of the surface of our planet. The Baltic with all its bays and inlets is only a small drop in that ocean, but for marine archaeologists and divers it is a fascinating and rewarding place. Systematic exploration of the treasures that it holds is only now beginning as new methods are adopted. Finnish researchers cannot hide their enthusiasm. Most of the oceans are kilometres deep, with some trenches in the Pacific plunging to depths in excess of ten thousand metres. The Baltic, by contrast, has an average depth of only 55 metres. In fact, it is one of the smallest, shallowest, most island-dotted and shoaliest seas in the world. For as long as the seas have been sailed, hundreds of vessels that have strayed off course or lost their battles with storms have ended up at the bottom of the Baltic, especially in its countless bays and inlets. Floor plates believed to have belonged to a Viking ship have been found in the Gulf of Finland. As research methods become more systematic, much more is likely to be uncovered. The Roman historian Tacitus reported nearly two millennia ago that the Germans obtained the furs they valued so highly "from beyond the unknown sea", i.e. the Baltic. The Vikings' eastward expeditions took them through the Gulf of Finland and on to Lake Ladoga. Over the centuries, fierce sea battles have been fought for control of that vital trade artery the Baltic. One indication of its continuing importance is that bristles with air and naval bases. Small wonder, therefore, that the waters of the

    Topps Sports History The history of Topps dates back to 1938, when Topps opened its doors as a gum manufacturer. In 1947 things started to change with the hiring of Sy Berger. By 1951 Topps was on its way to trading card history. In 1952 the first set of the modern age of trading cards was born, along with the 1952 Mickey Mantle card. To this day, it is still the most cherished and sought-after set (and card) in the industry, and it has become an industry icon. As baseball has changed, so have Topps baseball cards. Topps purchased the Bowman Company in 1956 and soon after established the standard 2 ½ x 3 ½ card dimensions the industry uses today. The introduction of Stadium Club in 1992 and Finest in 1993 continued Topps dominant position in baseball and the card category as a whole. By 1957, Topps was producing cards in all four major sports. TOPPS IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF THE TOPPS COMPANY, INC.

    Jump to: Is Davis through with 'Skins? Zeile in, Stanton Out Giants sign Alfonzo Harrington to miss final two games Detroit Lions quarterback Joey Harrington will sit out the final two games of the season because of an irregular heartbeat, head coach Marty Mornhinweg announced on Monday. Harrington played one series during the Lions 23-20 loss to Tampa Bay on Sunday, but was taken to the hospital for tests and observations after falling ill with the heart problem. Doctors said Harrington's heartbeat had returned to a normal rhythm before he was hospitalized. The rookie quarterback, who has had no previous heart troubles, will miss the rest of the season for precautionary measures only, according to Mornhinweg. "Based on consultations with our team doctors, training staff and the attending physicians at Henry Ford Hospital, we believe this is the best decision for Joey," said Mornhinweg. Harrington, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2002 draft out of Oregon, has started 12 of the 14 games so far this season for the Lions. He has completed 215-of-429 passes for 2,294 yards with 12 touchdowns, but has also been intercepted 16 times.
