Table Tennis Summer Games Block 8
Mom purchased a ping pong table with S&H Green Stamps for us in the late 60s. Customers would receive these stamps at the checkout counter of supermarkets, department stores, and gasoline stations, which could be redeemed for products in the catalog.
The table was set up in the basement and we would spend hot summer days in the basement playing ping pong. (It was the coolest room in our un-air-conditioned house.)
China has many of the leading players and is favored to win many of the gold medals for these Olympic events.
