Magnificent Lemon Peel, Gary. Condition looks terrific... it's so tough to find authentic ones these days, let alone in great shape. Congrats!


Fred:
Never seen the original packaging to those Wallets... and that's right along the lines of what I collect. Gotta be uber-rare.

I have similar Jackie Robinson and Joe DiMaggio Wallets from the '40s - 50s, but they are leather (as opposed to vinyl). And both have a Willard Mullin caricature on the reverse side. Great stuff!

When the 19th C. well runs a little dry, I always have my 1950s HoF endorsed bats! This trio are very recent acquisitions and nice additions to that niche of the collection, and I'm particularly fond of the pre-1953 Larry Berra endorsed bat.

Default Mail Day!

I picked up this Big Papi bat after watching it for a while. I am fairly certain that it is a gamer (or at least issued), but I don't know how to figure out how to date the bat.
Does anyone know how to do that?

I also got my Gehrig Kren Special bat back after a short trip to Mears. I am very glad to have that back in the baseball room!

Default 1895 America's Cup Telegram - Defender vs Valkyrie III



A VERY EARLY BIRDS-EYE ACCOUNT
Picked up this telegram tonight off eBay...great content...great dip pen ink... and quite legible...and very interesting because it was apparenlty a very early first hand account that was correct at the time it was written...but the outcome was changed and Defender declared the winner...

The telegram is regarding the 1895 America's Cup race between the United States and England...Defender represented the United States...Valkyrie III represented England...From what I learned the race was made up of five regattas...according to Wikipedia this telegram would have been regarding the second regatta on September 10th, see below...

Although the telegram says Valkyrie won and crossed the line 40 seconds ahead of Defender (it was actually 47 seconds), obviously it was written early on, as Defender was nevertheless declared the winner because right before the race was to begin Valkyrie's boom struck and damaged the Defender and Defender was leeward of "Valkyrie III" at the time of collision...So the part of the telegram that says "Valkyrie ran into Defender and broke a mast" was right on!...Defender ended up winning the best of the five regattas to win the America's Cup...

Second race
The second race occurred on Tuesday September 10, 1895. The race was set as a triangle course with each leg having a length of ten miles. In the pre-start maneuvering, "Valkyrie III"'s boom struck "Defender", severing the starboard spreader. "Valkyrie III" lead throughout the race, although "Defender" closed the gap between the boats in the second and third legs of the race. "Valkyrie III" crossed the line forty-seven seconds before "Defender". However, after hearing the protest from "Defender" against "Valkyrie III", the Race Committee awarded "Defender" the race as it found that "Defender" had right of way over "Valkyrie III" as "Defender" was leeward of "Valkyrie III" at the time of collision. -Wikipedia

Default Sandy Koufax 1st no-hitter game used ball

I recently added this game used ball from HOF Sandy Koufax's 1st no-hitter. This ball originated from long-time NL umpire Stan Landes.
Stan Landes was the 2nd base umpire in Sandy's 1st of 4 career no-hitters on June 30, 1962.
The fledgling NY Mets in their inaugural season were the victims in Koufax's 5-0 whitewash (13 K's). Landes gifted this ball and two other game used balls to a young Dodger fan from the LA area.

I'm very proud to add this historic ball to my advanced no-hitter collection. I now have game used balls from HOF no-hit kings Nolan Ryan (6 of his 7 no-hitters), Sandy Koufax (his first of 4 no-hitters) and Bob Feller (his 2nd of 3 no-hitters).

This ball is a nice compliment to my signed full ticket and scored program from Koufax's 1st no-hitter
