Default Any Pocket Schedule Collectors Here?

Hi,

I'm pretty new here. Been lurking, checking out various threads here. Seems like a great community and I hope I can become a part of it.

A bit about me first. My name is Mike. I'm a die hard Yankees fan, been so since I was 5 years old when my first game was watching Chris Chambliss homer the Yankees into the World Series. I was bitten by the baseball bug and have been a fan ever since. I guess you can say, due to the timing, I was the original band wagon jumper

I collect all things Yankees. I have about 15,000 cards, close to 200 autographs and about 25 Yankee bobble heads. I have magazines, pins, DVD's, books, jerseys, t shirts and a even a bat or two.

I just started a Yankees schedule collection and was wondering if anyone else here collects them as well. Was looking for storage advice and anything else you can think of. My goal, right now, is to collect from 1970-present day. I just picked up a 1970 schedule off ebay. I have a couple from the past couple of years, so I will be looking to add to the collection. I figured I would do the schedules as programs are a bit pricey for me right now and I figured the schedules would be a nice way to show off some vintage Yankees history.

Would love to see pics of any schedules if anyone collects.

Thanks for the long read and thanks for letting me join this wonderful community.

Mike

Skeds are great, a nice inexpensive way to enjoy the hobby.
At one time I collected schedules from each team in all 4 sports incl. the minor leagues.
I've trimmed down quite a bit and just collect the Yankees, Football Giants, USFL, WFL and various pre 1970's that catch my fancy.

Mike, shoot me a PM w/ the Yankees you need from the 80's & up as I have some laying around that I can send you at no charge.

Here's a couple of my favorites, other sked collectors....lets see 'em!

Hi, Mike. I'm not a schedule collector--I specialize in the Yankees 1903-1927. Here's the one pocket schedule I own--from the Yanks first season, 1903.

Not a schedule collector either, but have this one for the 1910 Tigers.

They also take up a lot less space than programs or yearbooks. You should have a fairly easy time piecing together the Bronx Zoo schedules. Here are some of mine:

I've had this one since 1976 and even marked the game that I went to, my 1st Yankees game in person:



Got these out of Sterling a year or so ago:




I bought this one quite some time ago for my O'Doul collection:



Bought this one earlier this year; loved the graphics:



how about pocket calendars? Here is a Vitali Klitschko one for his Ukrainian political party. Eastern European politicians haven't learned to fake-smile yet; they all look like they've been arrested:

Some great stuff guys. Is the dog sched a Mexican League one? My spanish is iffy, all I got was head of the dog.

Love, love that first Yankees schedule David. I didn't know schedules go that far back.

Exhibitman, love those 70's schedules. I am keeping an eye on a few on ebay. My favorite is the '77 one because the first game I ever seen as a kid was that game.

Jay, I will drop you a PM. My schedule collection is real small right now and some are not in the best shape. Here's what I have so far:

1970-Just got off ebay



2004



2007



2008



2009-Lots of water damage



2013-Also got Teixeira and Pettitte



2009 SI Yankees-Was a season ticket holder for 5 years and I never thought about grabbing a pocket schedule



Unfortunately, I never thought about collecting schedules until recently. If I had, I would have taken much better care of these, but you learn and you know better for next time. Lucky, I can get these replaced easily and pretty cheap off ebay.

Keep the schedules coming. I am loving what I am seeing so far.

Mike

Sadly I started collecting pocket skeds around 1975 but somewhere around 1985 I just started throwing them in what has now become 5 large plastic tubs.

I still write the teams for them each year, open the envelopes, peer insdie and then put envelope and all into the tubs. I would guess I have around 10,000 skeds or more. I keep thinking that I will sort through them some cold winter but have yet to do so.

This may inspire me! Over the years I have sold some of my most prized baseball cards and publications but have never once gotten rid of two things my skeds or my baseball videos and DVDs. I now have a little over 700 baseball films. Probably more than that of football but never did collect football skeds.

I think this fits the definition of hoarding. I even have some envelopes from some board members from the 1980s when people ran "trading sked" ads in the old SCD.
