1955 Minneapolis Millers Junior World Series Championship Team Collection - Game Used Bats

(Top to Bottom) Bill Rigney, Carl Sawatski, George Wilson, Ron Northey, Willie Kirkland, Bob Lennon, Joseph Bracchitta, Ed Bressoud, Foster Castleman, Bill Gardner.

"The 1955 Minneapolis Millers achieved the ninth and final American Association regular season title for Minneapolis. In their final season at Nicollet Park, they finished on top with a record of 92–62, eight games over the Omaha Cardinals. The Millers exploded for 241 long balls in 1955—the highest total in Association history! In the playoffs, the Millers swept both Denver and Omaha in four games to win the Governor’s Cup, the top prize of the American Association champion. Minneapolis became the first American Association team to sweep both rounds of the playoffs since the inception of intra-league postseason play. Facing the Rochester Red Wings in the Junior World Series, the Millers overcame their .235 series batting average to capture the crown, four games to three. With 16 home runs during the seven-game series, Minneapolis achieved an all-time Junior World Series record."

1958 Minneapolis Millers Junior World Series Championship Team Collection - Game Used Bats

(Top to Bottom) Stu Locklin, Pumpsie Green, Red Robbins, Ed Sadowski, Jerry Zimmerman

"In 1958 Minneapolis again made it to the Junior World Series. Finishing the regular season in third-place under Gene Mauch in his first year at the helm, the Millers defeated Wichita and Denver in the playoffs to earn the Governor’s Cup. To seal the deal, Mauch’s men swept Montreal, becoming only the second Association club to ever sweep a Junior World Series."

1955 Minneapolis Millers Junior World Series Program and Tickets from the last game played at Nicollet Park.

Excited to add these pieces of history to my collection! Program is scored and dated from September 28, 1955 - GM 7 in which the Minneapolis Millers defeated the Rochester Red Wings 9-4, clinching the Junior World Series Title. The corresponding Home Game 4 ticket stub adds to the nostalgia.

Genuine “Original” Midway Stadium Box Seat - Home of the St. Paul Saints from (1957-1960).

In the 1950s, the two American Association teams in Minnesota, the St. Paul Saints and Minneapolis Millers, were playing in ballparks approaching 60 years old. Both cities were considering new ballparks for their teams and were looking beyond the immediate need to having a stadium that could be the home of a major-league team. The first Midway Stadium was the home of the St. Paul Saints from 1957–1960, after Lexington Park, the long-time home of the St. Paul Saints was decommissioned. It was built with just a small uncovered and presumably expandable grandstand. It was intended to compete with Metropolitan Stadium for attracting a major league baseball team, but the already-larger capacity of "The Met" doomed Midway Stadium. It was abandoned for professional baseball once the Twins arrived in 1961 and displaced both the Saints and the Minneapolis Millers.

Up until recently, I have never seen one these before. This is an incredible and rare seat. It was beautifully restored by Seitz and Company in St. Paul Mn. After further research, I found an article from July, 1993 in the Baltimore Sun that mentioned Seitz & Co., Mike Seitz, a local St. Paul resident purchased many of these seats back in 1981 when the ballpark was being demolished.

Man I don't know where you find this great stuff. I'm lucky to find something from the entire state of Kansas every 6 months or so. Great collection and keep them coming.
