Default April pickups

As many of you know, I am an advanced collector of no-hitter related items.
I recently picked up an oddball item related to 1965 Red Sox no-hit pitcher Dave Morehead- an original 1961 Commencement Exercises (Graduation) program from San Diego Herbert Hoover High School.

In doing my background research on Morehead I realized that he was an excellent multi-sport scholar athlete at Herbert Hoover HS and was drafted directly out of high school. Because of lack of depth in the Red Sox starting pitching roster, Morehead advanced quickly to the majors and was successful at hurling a no-hitter in 1965.
One other famous graduate from Herbert Hoover High was none other than HOF great Ted Williams.

The day that I received this program three weeks ago, I wrote a letter to Morehead asking if he would sign this program & inscribe it with his no-hitter date. When I looked up his address I was shocked to find that he now lives in a home less than 3 blocks from the home I grew up in! How weird is that?
I received it back in today's mail.

Default c. 1880s Ring Style Bat

This 36" ring bat is the most ornate I have ever had the pleasure of owning and looks even better in person. It was made by L.B. & Co. and is marked "Regulation" in gold lettering. While it just got started, if April ended right now I'd call it a success!

Great bat Jonathan. I love those "grain painted" bats and that one is a beauty.
