Great original 1937 photo of Gehrig with some guy playing Paddle Ball. Lou has a Paddle Ball in his hand as well. Still looking up info on what/when this is, but pretty cool. I'm pretty sure it would qualify as a type 1. Came from a good friend. Thanks.

1917 Scorecard of the World Series teams, however it already notes that the White Sox are Champions, so I wonder if this is from some barnstorming game in the offseason or a 1918 rematch. Any one see one of these b4? It's up on Ebay if interested.

Here are two of my pick-ups from this month:

http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/GKreindler/JoeDiMaggioShibe_zps0a14788f.jpeg (http://s19.photobucket.com/user/GKreindler/media/JoeDiMaggioShibe_zps0a14788f.jpeg.html)

The DiMaggio is a pretty famous image, though I doubt it's a Type 1. I just went after it because it had been the clearest version of the photo that I've ever seen. Outside of the ballpark (Shibe), I'm not sure about many of the details in the photo, except that it's gotta be from '36-'37 or '40-'41 - I know DiMaggio didn't wear his jersey pants that tight after he came back from WWII. Does anyone have any ideas?

The Marquard shot is from the Polo Grounds in 1909, his first full year in the bigs. I think it's a Type 1 with the Culver stamping, but I could be totally wrong. Either way, it matters not. They'll BOTH make really cool paintings someday.

Weeeeeeeee!

Great photos Craig. I had an offer in on the Dimaggio. I low balled it because of the concerns of what type it was, but the image is very clear. Are there any markings on the back?

The Marquard certainly looks like Type 1. Cool pickups.

GKreindler
09-04-2013, 03:19 PM
Thanks, Ryan!

The DiMaggio has virtually no markings on the back. I think it's an older print, but really doesn't seem like the 30's stock that you would hope for from a Type 1. I could of course be wrong, but it just doesn't SEEM to be one, if that makes any sense.

Either way, at least you didn't end up wasting money! :)

After watching it for a few days, and a little research, I decided to just jump on the low BIN.

The Sipsey Mine Team from the Birmingham Industrial Leagues in the 30's.. Front row, 2nd from the left, is apparently Huey Green, father of World Golf Hall of Famer, and 1985 PGA Championship winner Hubert Green..

Lucked into part of an article from 2004 about the Industrial Leagues, that just happened to use the photo..

Very interesting investigative work...I'd be surprised if there's a group of collectors looking for fathers of HOF golfers on vintage baseball memorabilia. If such a group exists, you've probably hit the jackpot!!!

lol. It was only $11. Just a fun piece, maybe a bit of an impulse buy. And it appears to be an integrated team. Definitely no HOFers here, but I'm interested in trying to figure out who the 2 black guys are.. I guess there's 2 others that could be black as well, but it's hard to tell, because they did work in a coal mine. I'm leaning toward those 2 just being dirty white guys...

Also stumbled upon an article about a new Negro League Muesum that is being built in Birmingham. It will not only focus on the Negro Leagues themselves, but also the Industrial Leagues..

I've had this for a while, but I find that as a Pirates fan and as a collector of old bats, I'm starting to really like this photo. The Bucs are in their 1925 unis, although the photo is stamped 1926. I'll guess that the hitter is Oil Smith, but I don't know for sure.

Growing up an Indians fan, Ray Fosse was my favorite player. I don't know how many autographed postcards I already had of him, but I like this one because of the note he wrote to the fan. Also interesting is he mailed this a little more than a month after getting run over by Pete Rose in the All-Star Game.

I'll probably post this later in the autograph section to solicit opinions on authenticity.

Looks like "Feary" to me. Another example of the same CDV with same name on back (appears to be his signature, rather than a simple identification of the photo's subject):

and it looks like it was all downhill from there, as by 1900, he was also legless and living in a work house...?

I recently picked up a neat piece of memorabilia that is a direct link to one of the many incredible durability records that HOF Nolan set in his career. When Nolan retired at the end of 1993 he left the game with approximately 54 ML records that he either owned outright or had tied in his great career. :eek:

On 7/30/74 Nolan Ryan was the starting pitcher against the White Sox in Anaheim. Ryan pitched into the 10th inning striking out 8, but took the loss. The winning pitcher in the game was Jim Kaat.

Even though no one knew it at the time, Nolan was just beginning a record breaking string of starts that lasted 594 games spanning 20 seasons. This Angels dugout card (filled out by manager Bobby Winkles) and ticket are from the 1st game of this streak. Along the way he passed rival HOF'er Steve Carlton's standard of 544 consecutive starts.

Note: This record has since been passed by a couple of other great pitchers, first Roger Clemens and most recently future HOF Tom Glavine.

1951 Canadian American League ball signed by the 1951 Oneonta Red Sox.

Old printer's tray -- great for displaying pinbacks -- I'm already starting to fill it up with some of my pinbacks that I hadn't been able to display before.

1) TWO ORIGINAL, CHILDHOOD TYPE 1 PHOTOS OF DUKE SNIDER FROM HIS ESTATE. They fit nicely with my Mantle, Williams, FELLER and BABE(later printed-20S).

2) BABE RUTH TYPE 1 PHOTO OF 1918 WS, GAME 1. Ruth pitched this game. This series was the last one Boston Won for many years as we all know(HENCE-THE CURSE OF RUTH).
This had a bunch of black press ink/paint that came right off and matted out to this(just over 5x7). I am VERY happy with the result. I am not sure if I have seen an original of this other than this copy so VERY happy that it cleaned up! A great piece of history that I wil now protect:)

WIKIPEDIA:
"Game 1 of the 1918 World Series marked the first time "The Star Spangled Banner" was performed at a major league game. During the seventh inning stretch, the band began playing the song due to the fact the country was involved in World War I. The song would be named the national anthem of the United States in 1931, and during World War II its playing would become a regular pregame feature of baseball games and other sporting events. The winning pitcher of Game 1 was none other than Babe Ruth, who pitched a shutout.

1918 would be the last Red Sox World Series Championship until 2004. The drought of 86 years was often attributed to the Curse of the Bambino. The alleged curse came to be when the Red Sox traded the superbly talented but troublesome Babe Ruth (who was instrumental in their 1918 victory) to the New York Yankees for cash after the 1919 season."

I know that this is off topic and I apologize. It seems that since I started collecting baseball photos my eyes have been drawn to images of historical figures that I occasionally find more fun to look at. Growing up Latino I heard stories of Villa and the Revolution from relatives. I find him fascinating and was thrilled to pick up this original 1914 8X10 Pathe News photo. I have always thought this was the quintessential (iconic?) image of him. Thanks for looking there is no one else in my immediate circle who understands my collecting affliction and I felt the need to share:o

Incredible items!

Thank you also to those who commented on my track shoe thread. I did not want to bump it but I did not get a chance to say thanks.

Below are some photos I recently found at a paper show. It looks like the photographer had close access to the Giants at spring training in 1936.

They were originally glued back to back on scrapbook paper. Luckily, there was no writing on the scrapbook paper, and it was very thick, so I was able to separate them. I only hurt two photos (tore corners off) but am quite pleased I was able to do it.

Here are the rest of the photos.

Also, I got this ticket stub from the 1915 Red Sox home opener at my favorite flea market a couple of weeks ago.

Wow Alan, those photos are awesome. :eek:

The photographer seems like they were pretty good with a camera. When I see snapshots from that era they are usually blurry or out of focus.

No flea markets around here ever have that kind of stuff. Hope u didn't steal it too bad:)
