Default September pickups

Here are 3 new ones to kick off September:

1934 Brooklyn Dodgers banquet menu signed by 21 including 1903 no-hit pitcher Chic Fraser, HOF'ers Hack Wilson and Al Lopez. Fraser is an extremely tough name that is seldom seen. He's been on my early no-hit pitcher bucket list forever.

Ernie Shore signed RPPC. Shore combined with Boston Red Sox LHP Babe Ruth in 1917 to pitch one of the most unusual of games. Ruth was the starting pitcher in the game, but got into an argument with home plate umpire Brick Owens arguing balls and strikes with the first batter. Ruth walked the 1st batter Morgan and then proceeded to punch Owens and was immediately ejected from the game.

Ernie Shore came into the game in relief. The baserunner Morgan tried to steal 2nd, but was thrown out immediately. Shore and the BoSox proceeded to shut down the next 26 batters without allowing a hit, walk or error.

Although this game is not presently viewed as an official perfect game, it was until 1991 when MLB changed the rules surrounding no-hitters and perfect games.

Debs Garms signed 3.5" x 5.5" photo. Garms was the hitter that ended up breaking up Johnny "Double No-Hit" Vander Meer's consecutive no-hit innings streak at 21 in 1938 in Boston.

Not in the best shape, but kinda like this. May end up keeping it for a while, instead of resale. He was such a legendary force in baseball

Thank you, Scott and Steve. I don't usually post my pick-ups here, but this is one I've waited for on his 1962 rookie card.

Picked up a Mickey Mantle authentic variant version of his autograph and address. The Mick was writing down where he wanted a guy to send some photos that Mickey wanted.

Cool piece but it brings up a good question that may need its own thread; when is an autograph an autograph? IMO, I don't feel that an address is an autograph. Mickeys intention was to write out his name so it was clear to receiver of the address. I'm interested in others thoughts.

I don't consider that an autograph, but yes, it is his "printed name" Exceptions would be someone like Helen Keller, who as most know, could only "print her name" in block letters, due to her blindness. In that case, since she didn't sign in cursive script, that would be considered her "autograph"

There may be more than one "right" answer. But "none" is wrong.

That insurance form was filled out by him in 1953--when he still took a bit of time signing.
But is his printed name an autograph?

IMO, it's not. It's his name printed. It's used for clarity in case his signature isn't legible.

That's a sweet Armstrong piece. I used to have a couple of those that I bought from Richard way back in the day. One of only a small handful of items that I now wish I hadn't sold as I'm sure it would be cost prohibitive to pick one back up, and I liked the novelty of his middle name on them.

Wow, Mike. I didn't know there were others. It's the earliest signature I've seen, and the only Armstrong I own. I'd certainly rather have it than a signed WSS litho.

Started off the month nicely. Picked up a 1969 Topps Curt Flood for my 1969 Topps collection. Picked up a 1926 Spalding Champions Max Carey. A 1934 Diamond Stars Al Lopez and a 1933 Goudey Fred Fitsimmons

All great, but that Carey is really neat. Nice pickup!

Dog-chewed '56 Yankees ball should be arriving in a few days. The only good autographs remaining are Mantle, Berra, Howard and Slaughter. The ball cannot be repaired. Given that the dog-chewed panel appears as shown below, and the Martin is clubhouse, I might do something like this:

Scott,

That framing job looks great! Great way to preserve a potential nightmare scenario. Be sure to post pics if you decide to get it done.

Thanks James, I will. I had this mock-up created before the auction ended, so it was the plan all alone. If there is some way to put it back together to where it resembles a displayable baseball, then I will do so - I even studied how to re-stitch a baseball - but I think that in this case it would end up looking real bad.

Scott, the layout looks good but (IMO) you are going to be alittle challenged to get those end panels to lay nice and flat. I have a couple of panel "cuts" I purchased and those darn things just will not flatten nicely so as to display through a postcard size top-loader. Perhaps framing with glass would do the trick. Best of luck to you. Lood forward to seeing your end result.

Vincent, I see what you are saying. My plan was to find a good leather-repair person and ask their opinion - if they can't do it, I won't mess with it.

Must be Neil Armstrong month. I picked up this signed 3x5 from the original owner who met him at Langley Air Force base in the early 1970's. Unfortunately, an errant spill from a glass of water long ago left a large stain on it, but other than that the signature is very nice and large. I like that he added the Apollo Inscription as well.

Spent 7 years of my life living on LAFB, that Armstrong is especially cool to me because of that connection. What a great, bold sig, even with the stain, it really pops!

Thanks, it was interesting to talk with the original owner, and hear her tell of how she had cherished meeting Armstrong. At first I want sure about the stain effecting it, but like you mentioned the boldness, size, and inscription impressed me. I have actually noticed that since Armstrongs passing, his autographs have become easier and slightly less expensive to find. I think it might have brought a lot of never before seen by the hobby ones out of the woodwork. I feel right now is actually a really great time to find them.

Love this. I grew up in Dallas, and I knew this house well. I knew Mick lived or used to live there but never had the cajones to knock on the door.

Here's another Mantle I picked up from Stinson today. I like any authentic Mantles that don't look like the typical 80's and 90's show signature. This one is presumed to be from 1953.

Added 188-190 ( I am starting to realize that the climb to 200 will be tough/expensive)

Default Modern but...

He truly is a spectacle to watch. I'm sorry it's not pre-war, but having seen this kid play about 7+ games in person, he's the real deal. My generation's Mantle (no, I am not saying he's as good or ever will be as good as Mantle, but has VERY similar tools and playing style), and I am hoping he stays healthy and has a long successful career, he's a young exciting player with a hell of a future.

Got these Monday night at Target Field, believe he signed about 10 cards for me, and have about close to 50 in-person auto's of Trout now. I have to thank his uncle for living in MN and standing by him

And, don't forget, Mantle could sign his name so that you could read it.
