Posted By: <b>Max Weder</b><p>Greg<br /><br />That is one of my favorite pennants of all, as well. Of course, I don't have one. My sister-in-law was kind enough to send me this one from her grandparent's old cottage in Nova Scotia...<br /><br /><img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/35/89771844_cf9e47bc92.jpg"><br /><br />I am always nice to my sister-in-law <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>mr. moses</b><p>I have sold many of my baseball related pieces as the prices grew faster than my ability to pay for them:-) I still have a few however. Unfortunately most of the ones I still have are ALL my favorites..... I am trying to get my new digital camera to work and I'll share some pix of my room in the other thread when I do. Could take a while as I'm a bit of a dinosaur..... In the meantime this is among my favorites not only for the superb artistry but the chromolithography as well. Oh yeah.

Posted By: <b>John E</b><p>Dan, thanks for the additional photos. The name you were missing was Harry "Pep" Clark, who was a player/manager for the team. The other names you had were correct, Russell (Lena) Blackburne, Phil Lewis and Tom Jones. Any chance you got a Hap Felsch photo in that lot? He was on the team in 1913.

Posted By: <b>Greg B.</b><p>I'll Try to get some close-ups of the "spinner" over the weekend, it is really cool. It says "spin the pitcher" on the bar in front of him. The sheet on the right has names of players in small squares organized by team that were meant to cut up and placed clip pins, like a paper clip that could be on the basepaths or on the dugout I guess. The lineup listed for the N.Y. Americans is:<br /><br />Baker 3B<br />Collins P<br />Devermer C<br />Fergusen C<br />Fewster LF<br />Hawk CF<br />Hoffman C<br />Hoyt P<br />Mays P<br />R. Musel RF<br />E. Miller CF<br />McNally 3B<br />Peckinpough SS<br />Pipp 1B<br />Quin P<br />Ruth LF<br />Roth RF<br />Schang C<br />Shawkey P<br />Ward 2B<br /><br />Can anyone tell the exact year based on this lineup?<br />Thanks!<br />Greg

Posted By: <b>Dave S</b><p>Greg--think the Game itself was copyrighted in 1922. Babe got there in '20...Roth in '21..and Jack Quinn was gone in '22, so lineup (i'd assume) had to be 1921. Think if you found a '21 Yankee roster somewhere, those names probably correct...<br />Don't forget the spinner pix!!

I think I saved a copy of the scan somewhere, but if anyone else has an image to post, I'd love to see it.<br /><br />Max

I have the box cover only, framed and hanging on the wall in my office.<br /><br />BTW, you state:<br /><br />"I think its from 1922 (after he died)."<br /><br />Matty died in 1925 so he was alive at the time this was produced. I'm sure it made him proud.

Posted By: <b>Greg B.</b><p>I thought he had died by 1922, I'm glad to hear it was produced while he was alive. I always thought it was a little creepy that they would issue something like this after he passed. That gives me more appreciation for it. Thanks guys, glad you like the pics!<br />Greg

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>That Eastern League composite is superb Jim. You took a better picture of it than REA did for their auction. It looked like it was faded but I can see by your photo that it is not.

Posted By: <b>jim</b><p>Hi Dan, it truly is clear and sharp, except for the thumb hole through the lower right player. Will enjoy viewing it on the wall. I am an avid card collector, more so than memorabilia, but most of the cards are buried whereas pieces like this I get to see all the time. Wish I had more walls.

Posted By: <b>jim</b><p>Just came in mail today. Scan in ebay was small so I was just bidding on needing the piece. Seeing the piece up close shows Satchel Paige sitting next to Bob Feller; Larry Doby in the upper row also. A nice surprise.<br /><img src="http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa21/shoelessjim/1948ClecelandBBM.jpg">

Posted By: <b>David Atkatz</b><p>Thanks Dan. I grew up in the Bronx--pretty close to Yankee Stadium--and would hang out at the players' entrance (mid-60s) for autographs. Around 1965 I became interested in the 1920s Yankees, and obtained my first Ruth and Gehrig autographs in 1966. Collecting stopped when I went away to college in 1968, then graduate school, jobs (I'm a physics professor), marriage, children, etc.<br />Took it up again--seriously--in 1990, and with eBay's assistance I buy and sell a bit to support the habit.<br /><br />How about you?

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I started with cards when I was a kid in the late 1970s - sold off my whole collection (with the exception of my Old Judge cards) around 1990 when I was in college. Around 1997 I discovered ebay and started collecting the T206 set and with that I got interested in all the ephemera surrounding the game and it's been pretty much non-stop collecting since then. My major focus is photographs and Nebraska related baseball items like the Nebraska Indians.<br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Indians%20Baseball%20Team/rea-greens.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Indians%20Baseball%20Team/nebind001.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Bruce Babcock</b><p>Great Ruth ball, David.<br /><br />Most of my collection is cards but this coin bank is one of my favorite memorabilia pieces. <br /><br />The only auto balls I have are single signed balls of Aaron, Mathews & Spahn plus a team ball of the 57 WS champ Milwaukee Braves, including Bob "Hurricane" Hazle.<br /><br /><img src="http://homepage.mac.com/thurber51/.Pictures/19th%20Trade%20cards/Darktown%20Battery.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Greg Theberge</b><p>There's just waaaaaaaaaaaay too much Yankee stuff being posted here! <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br />Only kidding (sort of). Nice stuff.<br /><br />Just to add balance to these new additions, here's another favorite when He played for the GOOD GUYS <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> (c. 1918-1919)<br /><br /><img src="http://i189.photobucket.com/albums/z192/HiNeighbor_2007/DSC00279.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Greg Theberge</b><p>Hi Joe,<br /><br />A collector friend that I purchased this from had shown it to Josh Evans at Lelands. Based on the Red Hat band, they dated it from the Red Sox years. To be honest, I don't know how you can really pinpoint it to a specific date. Lelands also had another hat band (sans hat)like this which they called Red Sox years.<br /><br />Speaking of Sox....It's looking VERY ugly tonight.<br /><br />Greg
