Just added this Steve Blass original art award to my 71 Bucs collection. The wife just purchased a new BMW this morning which gave me the opportunity to guilt her into this piece which in reality only has meaning to me. I think she got the better pick up but I am pleased nonetheless.

It's not s professional model bat and the final price proves it. The seller stated several incorrect facts about the bat and I informed him about it. Most collectors believe a professional model Spalding bat shouldn't have any Spalding logos on the knob or barrel end. Also the bat measuring 34 3/4, would mostly be considered a 35 inch bat.

Thanks Brock. Actually didn't feel it was a professional bat but honestly wasn't completely sure.

1916 RPPC. One of the attributes of this postcard that captured me is that it was postmarked only two days after the game. The game was on a Saturday Nov. 11, 1916, and this was mailed and postmarked on Monday Nov. 13. The photographer John P. Troy, who was the official photographer of Cornell University, apparently printed the postcards immediately following the game for sale or just to be given out. The same photo was also used in the yearbook that year.

Picked up this golf trophy last Sunday at the Alameda Point show...For as big as that show is I don't really find a whole lot there...stuff for my own collection that is...As I was walking the show a friend told me about it and that he almost bought it...Sounded pretty good the way he described the nymph handles and all....Half hour or so later I found it...had a pretty hefty price which was why it was still there...I see a lot of trophies but this one pushed my button because it's so ornate and because of its size 15 ½” tall x 15” wide…has a presence to it...couldn't find a makers mark but looks like something Derby would have made...I'd guess it's about c1910-12...After I got home I did a completed search for "art nouveau” trophies but didn't see anything that even came close artistically...Plus I like the Seattle Police tie in...

Great stuff guys!
I love the trophy Carlton! How you been?

Living in Montreal now, I checked out an antique show this weekend in Drummondville, but didnt find much.
I was happy to get this Chicago Cubs Chewing Tobacco 16 plug, 2 lbs box.
I've never seen another, and it will go well with my original Cubs Chewing Tobacco advertising sign, that lists the plugs at 15 cents each.
I also recently picked up this team photo from the late 19th century in it's original frame with hand embellishments. Not sure what sport though...
Rugby? Looks 1880s.
I'd love to hear others opinions...

Cool items Brent. Love the Cubs box. Your guess on Rugby is probably good one. Lacrosse and Rugby were popular back then in Canada. Unfortunately no equipment shown in the pic. Here is a link to the McGill Rugby team history.

Free? Wow. Very cool. It’s ironic….just yesterday my daughter had a soccer game at the field of a local middle school that was built in the 1960s (I would guess). At the back of the school was an old football scoreboard, not that different from your scoreboard, about the same size but maybe older. It clearly had not been used in decades, and football had not been played on that grass field for many years. A couple of the dads and I discussed that it would be cool if we could get and restore the scoreboard…..and here you got one for free. Congrats!

At the back of the school was an old football scoreboard, not that different from your scoreboard, about the same size but maybe older. It clearly had not been used in decades, and football had not been played on that grass field for many years. A couple of the dads and I discussed that it would be cool if we could get and restore the scoreboard…..and here you got one for free. Congrats!

Thanks Joe. That is ironic and would be cool if you were able to restore it. It was perfect timing b/c they purchased a new scoreboard and they were going to cut this one up for the scrap pile.

Those lucky strike and tuxedo posters are beautiful. The scoreboard is such a cool item. I am trying to think what I would do with it. Basement wall or put up in back yard perhaps. Definitely needs illumination. Man thdtxwalter tuxedo is beautiful.

Just got this ticket. Honus Wagner's last two hits of 1913. Clinches .300 Batting Ave. for last time in his career. He went 0-3 the next day to drop his average to .300 and then didn't play in the final two games. I would imagine Fred Clarke sat him to keep that intact. Anyone else think that was the case??

Also just got this 1911 Police Gazette Matty. Didn't realize how big it was. Awesome! I put it next to my T3.

First pickup of the month and my last. Photo is Jackie's first steal after walking in his first at bat in 1947 world series. Baseball mag Dec 1947 cover image is of next play in the game: Pee Wee hitting into fielder's choice, Jackie out at third. Mag not in great shape, but I love the consecutive plays story that unites them. Pee Wee advanced to 2b. Would love a pic of him scoring.

P.s. that Tides jersey is GREAT.
