Paid $10. Not a glove collector. One is in good shape the rest are pretty rough. Thought they would be good decorations for my man room.

My first two photo pick ups for August. I was really pleased with the 1942 Greenberg WWII picture. I thought the P-51 Mustang served as a perfect backdrop. The Hodges is from spring training 1953.

Sold as chocolate molds. First one is not mine but was sold on eBay back in June. He's holding a bat. The one in the 2nd picture I picked up at a local antique mall. I'm not definite on it but is it a player holding a ball??

Had to outbid an internet bidder, but I prevailed! I don't read german, but I think it translates into "BFF".

An interesting note: There was a Frank Valk who died in 1961 in Lakeland FL, about 45 miles from where I picked this up.

Nice colorful graphics. From the days when they promoted butter as "Good Food and Good Health" It appears butter makes you a better baseball player

Nice photos Mike. I just recently saw the wire photo of that Greenberg and thought how nice it would be to have the original.

Hi-
Here are two of my flea market finds from this morning. The first is a photo of Joe DiMaggio taken by a fan in 1940. I am looking forward to obtaining another photo taken by the same fan of Ted Williams in the next few weeks from the same dealer. The second item is a tiny baseball game with rules on the back. I scanned it with a quarter to show the size. Any idea when it is from? My guess was 1920s or 30s but I do not know.
Alan

Ryan,
More great photos. Very nice. What is up with Gabby's eyes? He looks like an alien. I assume it's accented by the newspaper editors to make the eyes stand out, but WOW, It sure looks weird.

Alan,
Nice Joe D pic.
Love snapshots.

Pre-1960s amphetamine use, perhaps?

Picked this up in an old fashion horse trade. I guess in this instance it was a Big Train trade.

Alan, you probably have the date for your little spinner game about right.
Several versions of the game, in varying sizes, were made as premiums or promotional items for several different companies beginning around 1912.
Your version is reportedly a Cracker Jack premium (according to experts on Cracker Jack premiums). Because another version of the game had been produced to advertise the candy maker Shotwell Mfg, and Shotwell was absorbed by Cracker Jack in 1926, our best guess is that your version is from later than 1926, but not much later.

In a quixotic quest to get every edition of The Art of Curve Pitching, here's another I've picked up, the 1888 edition

I got these two items at an estate sale this weekend...best part is that I didn't even know that I bought them until I got home...they were in a bag of postcards, paper and photos...I saw a few photos I liked and didn't even search the rest of the bag. The first item is a blank backed card...the second is an invitation to a dance, it is a folder that is postcard sized.

I haven't either...I can't find a similar one on the internet...I'm guessing it's pretty rare since it was for a one time event.

Here are a bunch of movie stills I acquired on Wednesday from the John Rogers archive booth at the National. They had eight boxes of boxing movie stuff, and I went through all of it looking for things like this.

Joe Louis:



Jim Jeffries in One Round Hogan [same photo used to make an exhibit card]:



Jeffries again in some potboiler called "They Never Come Back":



The next several shots are from the Bogart movie "The Harder They Fall."

Max Baer:



Jersey Joe Walcott



Publicity shot of Bogie, Baer and Walcott w/Columbia stamping:

This is a common game, as I believe a number of these were part of a find in recent times.

Default Bain Wagner

Managed to win this Wagner photo from the latest Hunt auction. For some reason, I thought I saw this Bain photo on a cabinet on ebay from the seller ariev a few months back, but it didn't sell because he put such a high reserve on it. Does anyone else remember this? I thought this image was on a prewar card or cabinet, but I could easily be mis-remembering.

Nice trio of related items! Truly a beginning to end story on those. What order did you pick them up in, or did you obtain the photo and the piece of steelwork at the same time?

Soo.
Why not frame them together?

Sorry couldn't help myself. Although a display case with the metal piece in it and the framed plans above would look nice.

I'd love to have one of those or any piece of metal from the old yankee stadium.

It would look nice. I'm hoping that someday my wife lets me bring it in the house.

I've had the photo the longest, Lance. I got the piece of upper deck truss when they were tearing down the Stadium in 2009. I found the drawing last summer, but just had it framed.

Default Folk Art Cast Iron Baseball

Same size as a standard baseball but really heavy. Made out of cast iron. Nice folk art feel to it.

Couple of ways you can tell its a golfer

1. The motion of the swing.
2. The atire of the figure. Standard turn of the century golfer with the knickers and jacket
3. The baseball mold has a visible handle while the golfer doesnt and wouldn't

The reason it does not show a club is because a golf club is very thin and would not last out of the mold. Would be too brittle. The person making the mold would usually add a small wooden club.Also, your mold is not a chocolate mold but rather an ice cream mold. Chocolate molds are generally very thin and made of tin while the mold you have is actually quite heavy comparatively and made of pewter. Are there any markings on the mold like 463

I wish I remember what book my dad found the mold in but it is indeed a golfer. Has decent value though if I remember correctly

Heres a link to the same mold that sold in 2006

Thanks for the info. That all makes sense and yes it is marked 463.
Thanks again,

Default 1910 A's

Picked this up from a fellow Net54er on Grand Slam Bids. Not sure what it is or was but can tell you a few things. It has some great images, it's in rough shape and it used to be bigger than it is now.

Thanks Matt W.!
