Posted By: <b>Phil Garry</b><p>I just got back from the Jacob Javits Convention Center in NYC today and enjoyed my MLB FanFest experience as well as attending the live Hunt Auction taking place there. Did anyone make any nice pick-ups from Hunt either yesterday or today?<br /><br />I was the winning bidder on one item, a c1914-1917 Negro Baseball Team Postcard (Lot #815). I have posted a scan of the front of the postcard below. Can anyone help with identifying all of the individuals pictured?<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s120/bcbgcbrcb/815.jpg">

Posted By: <b>john</b><p>My pick ups (no cards):<br />Lot13 Jeter game jersey<br />Lot 47 Mantle World Series ticket display (grossly overpaid) My son wanted it<br />Lot 61 1926 Yankees team photo<br />Lot 117 White Sox team photo<br />Lot 578 Lot of 10 Maris/Mantle signed photos<br />Lot 730 200 signed Whitey Ford 8x10's<br /><br />It was a great auction. Big crowd, lots of media. The Munson family was there and obviously touched by the outpouring of fans love for Munson. No bargains to speak of but my son loved Fan Fest.

Posted By: <b>john</b><p>I thought that was the one good deal, if there was one. The jersey was for my 7 yr old. He worships Jeter and his walls are covered with all things Jeter.
