Might as well start this month. Bought in Nov, obviously, but just arrived. Nice 40's Bob Kennedy gamer. Bought from Probstein, so now I'm worried that I got shilled, but I absolutely love the bat.

I agree. I love these vintage bats, although the flame-burned early-80's display well, too.

I almost bid on a few of his bats last week but looked at the bidding history on each item and said the hell with it.

But anyways, very nice bat!

I think early on the seller -- or someone like him -- was bidding; low feedback, they had 100% bids with probstein, and they put in dozens of bids at $2 increments. But in the end it appears I went head-to-head with another bat guy.

Scott- your video of the 1949 World Series is from MLB Productions. They began selling tapes in the early 1980s for the World Series from 1943-forward. Their early catalogs list the tapes at $29.99 which was huge in those days!

They started adding team highlight videos they had in storage dating back to the 1960s but they were very eradic as to what they could come up with. Those were issued mostly in blue cases with the MLB logo. Some went for as much as $49.99. They went to colorful paper caes as early as 1982.

Doak Ewing of Rare Sports Films did a much better job of "harvesting" old highlight teams from the clubs especially the Braves back into the 1940s. His are cleaned up and nice while the MLB Production early films were a little spotty.

MLB teamed up with Scotch and issued a great series of team histories beginning in 1987 and that kicked off the baseball video explosion that was probably in response to the amazing success of NFL Films.

The early videos are not holding up well, they really deteriorate with time, I keep mine in a climate controlled environment but who knows. At this time I have over 775 baseball videos, DVDs and even more football with the proliferation of college highlight films.

Just picked up a documentary on Disco Night in Cleveland!

By the way the toughest baseball films for me to find are minor league histories and highlight films. If anybody has any and can share the info ?I would appreciate it, I can add it to my want list and bibliography.

Rob- I know there was a documentary put out in the Cleveland area a few years ago by one of the native american groups protesting the team name. If you ever see any info on a DVD please let me know.

I got this one cheap, probably because of the writing on the front, but to me that writing is invaluable.

Haven't made any recent posts on the pickup thread, but finally got all my photos together and thought I would post a photo of my 1920's New York Yankee Type 1 Photo Collection to date. Consists of primarily Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig related photos and majority are from 1927. Most appealing part for me is obviously the amazing content, but every photo in my collection is a LARGE format photo, 8x10 or very close to it. Very happy with what I have been able to assemble up to this point!

Just click on it to view my photos. I have high quality scans of the front and reverse. The photo in the middle is just after the Yankees won the 1927 World Series with the fans gathering and celebrating on the field as they exited the stadium. Pretty cool shot that you would never see done these days!

Picked up another addition to my Federal League collection. This one only tangentially related. A bulletin from Ban Johnson to the AL club owners, referencing 1915 contracts with the ten-day release provision eliminated. The provision was omitted after several courts held that it rendered MLB's standard player contract unenforceable the year before in cases brought by the Federal League.

You are killing me with that Clemente image!

Here is the most recent addition to my increasingly eclectic collection. Although I dabble in Japanese baseball memorabilia I didn’t have an original photo from the Nippon Professional Baseball League. I saw this 1947 photo on eBay and fell in love with the photo’s composition without having any idea who the subject of the photo was. I googled his name (Tetsuharu Kawakami) and found that he was known as The God of Batting in Japan and is a member of their Hall of Fame. I contacted Robert Klevens of www.prestigecollectibles.com . He had this early 1950s Autographed Small shikishi by Tetsuharu Kawakami. Apparently autographed shikishis from this period are quite scarce. In addition to his name at left, Kawakami wrote "Tokyo Giants Team" in the center in Japanese. At right, he wrote the kanji for "Endeavor" signed with a traditional brush pen. If you read the link below by Robert Whiting you will learn how appropriate the use of the “Endeavor” kanji was by Kawakami. I hope to frame the photo and shikishi board together. By the way if you haven’t read Whiting’s book You Gotta Have Wa do so it is a great read.

Very nice photo, Mike, and I for one really appreciate your eclectic tastes. Anything you might be lacking in resources you seem to make up for in diligence and resourcefulness. Every time you snag one of these nice photos and say "I found it on eBay" I'm thinking to myself "Why didn't I see that? Is there some back room of eBay filled with such wonderment that I have somehow overlooked?" Anyway, another great find (especially with the shikishi to go with it), and I look forward to seeing what you unearth next :cool:

If I had unlimited resources it would be scary. I pick my battles now and got into this photo thing earlier than most. Luckily I was able to network, Educate myself and zero in on what I wanted to accomplish years ago. I was exactly where you were at 5 to 7 years ago. I, by no means, have crazy resources..just able to move things around and focus. You are on your way to building a word class collection with seemingly modest means, a great eye and many man hours. You certainly remind me of the "good old days". Great photos can still had but graduating to differt levels is inevitable my friend. :) don't stop while you're ahead says me! Haha!

Mark, great acquisition on the Wachter's Parlor Base Ball. Just for accuracy's sake, it's more reliably ascribed to 1890-91,
and possibly predated by Nash Manufacturing's circa 1889 Base-Ball And Bagatelle. Not to take a single thing away from it --
it's a beauty, probably in the best condition of any of the few surviving examples of Wachter's.

perezfan
12-08-2013, 05:23 PM
Well, Tanks for Nuttin, Butch :mad: (anybody remember that irritating girlfriend in Caddyshack?)

I don't want it anymore. I was under the impression this was the oldest one. In his book, Dr. Cooper has Wachter's listed as being from 1888 and the far less attractive Nash Game from 1889. Are you saying Cooper is mistaken about this??? Can we just call it a tie between Wachter and Nash for oldest?

Seriously, I care lots more about its displayability and rarity than the exact date of manufacture. But appreciate the additional info. Interesting stuff :)

Butch7999
12-08-2013, 10:22 PM
Jeez, sorry, Mark! We shoulda kept our mouths shut (or our fingers off the keyboard) -- it's a great piece no matter what.

Mark Cooper will readily admit there are errors in his 1994 volume -- it was a pioneering work with almost no prior sources
or available documentation on which to rely, so there was was a lot of guesstimation involved in putting a date to many pieces.
Over time, much has been corrected and many blanks filled in by collectors and members at our Baseball Games forum,
and a great deal of that new information is thanks to the ferocious research of Hall of Fame Senior Curator Tom Shieber,
who did an incredible amount of digging to get the details right for the Hall's 2008 exhibition of Dr Cooper's collection.
The patent for Wachter's was granted in March 1891, and the earliest advertisements so far found for it appear in October 1890.
The patent for the Nash Base-Ball And Bagatelle was granted in September 1889, but we haven't yet run across
any advertising for it.

That said, there's often a substantial gap between the granting of a patent and the actual production of a game -- sometimes
a couple of years, in a few instances decades. Advertisements are often a more reliable indicator than patent or copyright dates
of when a game was actually on the market. Without more documentation on the Nash game, there's no overwhelming reason
to think Wachter's didn't hit the market first and that you do in fact have a scarce example of the oldest baseball-themed
pinball/bagatelle game made.

perezfan
12-09-2013, 01:23 AM
Wow- that's some great history. Thanks for all of the background info! I am truly amazed and impressed that you are able to document it in such meticulous detail... great stuff.

Of course I was just kidding about being disappointed. It's fascinating to study and collect these relics from Baseball's infancy, and you guys are providing a great service to our community :)

Hi again, Mark, thanks very much for the kind words! We really were concerned we'd thrown a wet blanket over your Wachter's
(creepy as that might sound) when we'd only wanted to get some more precise info out there for ya.

We'll add, in fact, for your edification, that Wachter was Henry Wachter, who designed and patented the game,
which was produced by the Columbus Engraving Co [Columbus, Ohio] under the "Columbus Parlor Base Ball Co" rubric
(all that info solely due to the amazing research of Tom Shieber).

By the way, Yahoo has recently all but crippled our forum, but we're transcribing the entirety of its nine-plus years
of research and discussion to a new host at a new location, hopefully ready and open for business by Christmas.
Our main site (linked in our sig) remains in place (but sorely in need of updating).

Just got this delivered today. Bought it off Ebay. This is my second one I have bought. From the Thompson Novelty company in 1895 a baseball dexterity game called "The baseball puzzle and teacher".

Hey Butch what do you think of this one?

Shale, we're just really annoyed that you now own both of the only two examples of that game we've ever seen... ;)

J/K, bud, that's a great pick-up! Don't forget to show it off again when our new forum opens up in a couple of weeks.

Apropos of nothing, but hey, that's our 200th post here, and it took us only four and a half years! Look out Adrian!

Butch- Is there a site that covers the history of football games?

toyman55
12-10-2013, 09:56 AM
Actually Butch, I believe Heritage had one last month that sold if I remember close to $400.00. I paid $75.00 for this one.

12-10-2013, 01:51 PM
Mike, thanks for the kind words about our site! We haven't run across anything similar dealing exclusively or primarily with tabletop football games,
but we do collect a little information on them ourselves (as well as a few actual games), so if you have questions, try us.

Shale, allrighty then, "two of the three we've heard of." Still a rare item, so again, congrats! We've been so busy the past few weeks
rebuilding the forum (and with holiday-season distractions) that we've been unable to do any auction tracking lately, so we missed
the Heritage offering.

This new piece is now the cornerstone of my Tigers collection. It is about 6" tall and is the only example of this piece I have encountered.

A HUGE thank you to Mark S. (Perezfan) for making this one available. I don't know, but I think it may have been produced by Neff because a Tigers mug I own has an absolutely identical snarling Tiger head.

Matt,
Send the iPhone photo to your computer, open it using Paint. Paint gives you and everyone else the opportunity to rotate the photo image. Save it and then send it from your computer. Give it a try. Fewer broken necks from straining to look at the image sideways...

BTW, I do this all the time because I have an iPhone

Great trophies, BTW!

At least on my iphone it is pretty easy to rotate photos. For mine, you can open the photo by clicking on it in your camera roll, click on edit in the upper right corner, then click the turning arrow in the lower left corner to rotate the image.

I love this photo. I suppose it is a great example of early luxury boxes. I am curious what is Landis’ wife smelling? Emil Fuchs looks like a pompous ass. Landis looks self-righteous. Ruppert seems to be tickled with himself, and Bob Shawkey looks a wee bit mischievous. His wife at the far right is donning the same expression my wife has whenever we go to Safeco. The gentleman in the striped tie to the left of Ruppert is his good friend Colonel Fred Wattenburg. Despite dying in 1938 he remained in contact with Ruppert via the Ouija Board. In 1938 he communicated via that medium that Ruppert would join him in the afterlife soon. Ruppert a believer in the occult died almost a year to the date of that communication.

Bob Feller's business cards from when he worked for Sheraton Hotels turn up on a fairly regular basis (although it took forever for me to get one), but I had not seen this item before now. 1.5 x 1.5 inches.

I might get the Lajoie-Wagner supplement framed with two ticket stubs I have from that 1913 Cleveland-Pittsburgh series. Though I was happy to get this, it will be the last time I ever deal with the auction house that sold it. 14 x 20 inches.

Those jerseys are great, Clint. Some real hideous designs.

I might have asked you this before: Did the late '80s Wichita script (No. 24) belong to Warren Newson? I'm fairly sure that was his number in 1989. Any chance No.33 was Kevin Garner's? I know that '89 was the first year for those styles. Not sure how long they used them.

Awesome Wichita Jerseys! What a variance, from the classic '50s Pinstripes to those garish technicolor '70s styles. That's quite an evolution...

In the spirit of Wichita, I just picked up this Christmas Goodie. The more I look at it, the more I like it.... This Wahoo puts the Gibbs Connners to shame, and might even get the nod over the Stanford Pottery.

I believe it's rare... Anybody here ever seen another?

Mark, that is awesome! I completely agree with you that it is better than the Gibbs Connors and give the Stanford Pottery pieces a run for their money.

Sorry Guys I've been out of town.

Rob, The 24 jersey was Newson's. The 33 I'm not sure about as the name was removed and I really hadn't researched it that much.

Mark, the only other Wichita Indian statue I've seen is the one in my collection. Not sure on when it was made and like the seller stated they were the Indians from 1950-55.
