What do you consider your area or areas of expertise. Is it bats, photos, trophies, pennants or whatever. Obviously this probably relates to what you collect as well.

I would say mine are Kansas baseball, bats and photographs or postcards.

I'm not saying I am THE expert, but I'm pretty good with store model bat and getting better with pinbacks.

I think I know a lot about a lot, but I probably know more than most people about the following:

Guy Green's Nebraska Indians
Nebraska minor league teams
Photographs

I have a good overall feeling for sports memorabilia in general that include many types of items that I come across, I do like finding New England related items.

Take Care Jimmy

Baseball books and early dust jackets seem to be the only thing where I have more than a passing knowledge

The term "expert" is a nebulous term. Even doctors and dentists call their business their "practice". So I guess we all practice our crafts, and keep on learning. I like to think i am some what knowledgable in news and wire photos. I have been collecting originals for many years. I think it is one of the last aspects of sports collectables ,to be gone after, and is still very very reasonable. To me, coming across a pre war photo, of a hall of famer, that no one else has, or hardly any one has ever seen is very cool. A peek into the past. A brief snapshot of a players career, or life. I find that fascinating.

in postcards... but would not call myself an expert by any means.
somewhere between a novice and an expert -- probably right in the middle of that.


If I had to call myself an expert in anything it would be printing in general.

But everything is relative... and there is always someone with more knowledge than I have, or someone who has a piece of knowledge that I do not have. Always learning, every day - from everything and everyone.

That's what I love about memorabilia guys, modesty. Except Greg, he keeps picking on my poor Orioles. You guys got my drift though. I was just looking for what area or areas your most knowledgeable in. I think it's true were always learning something new.

Sorry Clint, Don't mean to pick on the Birds. I actually love the Birds, they're my second favorite team. I wish we got your shortstop last year. Had the pleasure going down to Maryland for a series in 05. Had a great time, great city! Yesterday, though, was a great day to be a Sox fan.

all the best,
Greg

My interest/research/passion is Jewish athletes. I am far from an expert, though.

To some extent, pre 1900 images. More so with dags, ambros and tintypes and to a lesser bit albumens, cabinet cards and cdvs. I also feel pretty comfortable with early manuscript material as far as ink, writing style and paper goes (although this doesn't help much in the world of baseball collectibles).

Mine would be in pre-1870 baseball artifacts. The earlier they are, the more my curiosity is piqued. I try to keep a comprehensive research library for these early pieces.

And a "muffin" is a term for a ballplayer with very limited skills. He's the one who would circle under a flyball and end up getting hit on the head with it.

If I have any special knowledge it is on 19th century bats (types, woods).

Yes, I have pics of a number of bats but I'm not quite sure how to post them here as I've never done it. I just signed up with image services and will try to get some posted this evening. I'll have to transfer them from another computer.

If you use the net54 picture service, the temp folder only keeps the images up for 7 days. If you load them to your own photo service, you can simply cut and paste the URL of the photo into your message text, making sure you include the http:// part of the address.
