Another great pickup Scott! I'm finding that I get more joy reading about your rare finds than I do finding something for my own collection. LOL

Believe it or not, this ticket took me over 45 years to find. It's been a long slog to say the least... Many thanks to net54's David Shakir for finding this guy for me

Dick Fowler had a very unusual bio. Prior to pitching in the ML he was actually a Canadian Mountie. In addition, he was pretty large in stature for a player in the 1940's. Retrosheet.org has him listed as being 6' 4.5" and weighing 230 lbs. - big dude!

I recently also acquired a cool circa 1947 signed snapshot of Dick Fowler clowning around with his diminutive great pitching teammate, Bobby Schantz, and another unnamed tall pitcher on the A's. Thanks to another great member of net54, Gary Scamehorn, for helping me add this snapshot to my mini collection of no-hit pitcher snapshots. Gary is one of the nicest guys out there & he manages to find a lot of incredible vintage snapshots, which is his collecting focus.

Thanks Scott, for the very kind words. I really appreciate that. I truly enjoy the hobby and helping people out. I'm glad I've been able to help you with your collection. Always a pleasure,Scott. Cheers to you!

Picked up these Philadelphia A's tickets from 1927 and 1926. 1927 had Collins Cobb and Wheat on the team.

Pretty expensive for a box seat....I guess things were good until 1929.

Which makes me think....how did baseball do through the Great Depression?

Not a bad price for a Cup challenge game, really, considering there were only 4300 seats...

I think that's Lou Brissie on the right - note his leg brace beneath his sock

Happy to pick up this Philadelphia Athletics kids shirt. Made by Ely & Walker in 1949 when it was promoted with an essay contest. Winners were treated to regular season and World Series games. Image of the contest flyer is from the Hall of Fame but I would love to find one to display with the shirt.
