Default March Pick Up

It has been the toughest month I have ever had in my life. I was able to pick these up recently however, they are very bittersweet at the moment.

Bob, sorry to hear that you have had a tough time recently.
Unfortunately, as we grow older we all experience tough times like you are describing. Sincere best wishes with everything you are dealing with.

The pocket watch is the bomb. Absolutely amazing! Congrats

Very happy to add these two to the collection. Game 4 of the 1932 World Series (Babe’s last one) and Game 4 of the 1947 series. Love that the original owner added “No Hitter” to the Ticket even though the No Hitter was broken up with 1 out in the bottom of the 9th!

Those are great pick ups Bob!
And I'm sorry to hear that you're going through a really hard time.
I hope things improve for you

Default vintage firesuit...

I mostly collect baseball stuff, but I'm always on the lookout for cool open wheel racing stuff, as well.

This firesuit came up for auction locally, as it was part of the collection of the late Scott Brayton and his dad Lee. I couldn't believe it was available for bid!! Gordon Johncock is a Michigan native and 2-time Indy 500 winner.

The tough part was that I couldn't make it to the live auction 2 weeks ago, as I was about 3 hours away at my son's hockey tournament. Thankfully, a close friend went for me and I couldn't be happier.

I'm guessing that it's from the late 60's to early 70's, but I haven't found an exact photo match. It shows good wear and has the right 'look'. Johncock is still alive at age 82 and lives about 4 hours from me. I'll probably send him a letter and picture asking if he can date it more accurately. I'd love to get it signed, but I have reservations about mailing it to him, even if he would agree to signing it.

Matt

That’s cool, alright. Maybe you could take a day to drive over and have him sign it in person (assuming he is amenable).

Default Dick Fowler no-hitter ticket and signed vintage snapshot

I recently managed to fill a huge hole in my no-hitter ticket collection:
A fully dated ticket stub from Philadelphia A's pitcher Dick Fowler's no-hitter on 9/9/45 @ Philly. Dated tickets from earlier Philadelphia games are the exception, not the rule as most did not have dates on them.
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.
