Default Wow !!!

Dan's Nebraska find is the stuff of dreams for focused collectors. The snapshot is a jewel.

Default Dan's score

Exceptional pick-up, Dan.

The Lincoln season pass horde is amazing. Those of us that avidly collect season passes with a definite #1 city (Lincoln for Dan, Seattle for me) know that this group is a once or twice in a collecting-lifetime grab.

Congrats!

Thank you for the nice words fellas. Dave is right, before this pickup I had exactly zero pre-1947 Lincoln season passes. In fact I'd never even seen one before.

1949 Jackie Robinson congressional testimony. Love that the back has Sugar Ray crossed out. How do you get Jackie wrong in 1949?

Got this MONSTER bat today. Probably the thickest handle I have ever seen. More like a log than a bat.
I love the logos on a lot of the vintage bats; they are like little pieces of artwork.

It has been a quiet 2018 as the stuff I'm collecting as of recent tends to be obscure and doesn't come up for auction too often. I'm still in shock that I was able to pick up this beautiful 19th century lithograph with President Grover Cleveland bidding farewell to White Stockings before their 1888-1889 world tour! I have quite a few woodcuts and books regarding the world tour but this one definitely takes the cake! In frame, it's a whopping 33"x40".

Great pick-up Dan. You probably have the best Nebraska sports history museum in the country.

I bought this a while back, but just got it framed yesterday (Gerrit Beneker study for 'Baseball Magazine' cover of Federal League issue):
