On one trip in 1994, he did this pen & ink sketch of the Hall. After he passed away, I had it framed and contacted the HOF to donate it. They loved it, and it's now part of their permanent collection.

Saying I'm honored, humbled and touched, to have a piece of my father's art in the Hall of Fame, would be an understatement. I plan to bring my son there in a few years to see it.
Any way we can get a larger scan of this beautiful piece sir, would really like to enjoy the details of your father`s work. Thank you.

Thanks for the very kind words, guys.

Here's a close up of the HOF sketch...

He also did this other one on the same day. It's of the old, great shop (National Pastime) in Cooperstown. I framed this one too...but this one is being kept for my son.

The first "little" World Series was played in 1904. The Buffalo Bisons of the Eastern (International) League beat the St Paul Saints of the American Association.
I acquired this very rare composite 27 years ago while set-up at the Cooperstown HOF weekend Baseball Card Show. A gentleman "walked-in" with it, he was
interested its trade value. I gave him a fair figure and he traded it to me for a bunch of T206's.
I have searched for another one since 1990, but to no avail.

Anyhow, I'm thinking of eventually donating it to the Hall of Fame. It's a significant piece of Baseball history since No Major League World Series was played in
1904.




The 1904 NL Champs were the NY Giants. McGraw was hoping to play the NY Highlanders in the World Series. However, the AL Championship came down to
a dramatic Playoff game in which Jack Chesbro (41-game winner) "blew" the game in the 9th inning and Boston went on to win the AL Pennant.

McGraw refused to play Boston, so there was no World Series. Furthermore, McGraw declared the Giants...."World Champions" !

This is a very neat collectible, but probably not "HOF worthy" lol. This photo was taken moments before the first of several meetings to move the Dodgers from Brooklyn to Los Angeles. At first glance, the photo appears to be off center. Upon further review, the beloved Emmett Kelly aka Brooklyn Bum can be seen lying on the bleachers. Certainly this was done for effect, as this meeting was highly publicized and ultimately led to the cross country move. This would be the final year for Brooklyn in Vero Beach, aka "Dodgertown"

More can be read here on walteromalley dot com:

"Another important meeting took place with several representatives from Los Angeles, including its Mayor Norris Poulson and Hahn, at Dodgertown on March 6, 1957. Also in attendance were John Gibson, President of the City Council; Samuel Leask, City Administration Officer; John Leach, Los Angeles County Chief Administrative Officer; and Milton Arthur, Chairman of the County Recreation Commission. It was an opportunity for Los Angeles to put its best foot forward and explain its genuine hope of pursuing the Dodgers and bring Major League Baseball to the West Coast, while gauging O’Malley’s interest. During their visit and throughout that spring, Emmett Kelly, the world-famous clown, entertained everyone and his antics were well-received by the fans."**

The photo is in VG-EX condition, more on the EX side, with a slight bend on the top right corner area. Mild staining on the back, with the United Press stamp clear and visible. The typed story portion intact and still attached to the photo at the bottom.

Unbelievable stuff here. What a great thread. With all this amazing stuff, my contribution would probably go in the HOF basement or attic.
Maybe a World Series wing........

This one might be interesting to either the Negro League museum or the Hall Of Fame...one of the highlights of my collection. Connie Morgan's personal scrapbook from her days in the Negro Leagues. Filled with newspaper clippings and handwritten notes and a few photos...all put into the scrapbook during her time with the Indianapolis Clowns.

Wow. What's pretty incredible about this (aside from the obvious baseball history), to me at least, is the attempt at a panoramic shot before panorama was truly possible.
