I was wondering how many of you also collect other baseball related items besides cards, and if we could post and share some of our favorites.

One of mine....

From 1916 Police Gazette

My collection is mostly autographs, predominantly HOFers, ranging from turn-of-the-century players to modern players. I also collect alot of 19th Century memorabilia, particularly photos and baseballs. Here are a few 19th Century baseballs:

Here's a sked for you Chicago fans - this thing is much nicer than how it appears in the scan. Too bad it didn't have Tinkers to Evers to Chance on the front. Ok, or Ed Walsh for the Sox fans.

Rob, you sure that one isn't a golf ball? :-p

Jay

I like to sit outside, drink beer and yell at people. If I did this at home I would be arrested, so I go to baseball games and fit right in.

Hey Jay,

No, the smallest ball is not a golf ball. The baseballs initially ranged in size from golf-ball size to softball size depending on what the maker had. Early golf balls were made with goose feathers and leather. The golf ball was then soaked with the feathers expanding and the skin shrinking to form a hard ball. Most golf balls were also painted. This ball is likely a kids ball or an early town ball. The interior is wrapped yarn/string.

I knew it wasn't a golf ball, but I am sure many people didn't know the history of baseballs or golf balls and appreciate the history lesson.

My collection consists almost entirely of vintage non-card baseball memorabilia (in fact I own just a handful of baseball cards). I collect everything from game-used jerseys to postcards to pinbacks to tickets to programs to unused OAL and ONL baseballs. Basically anything unique and visually appealing to me--sort of a "type" collection for vintage baseball memorabilia.

I also have a small vintage football and basketball collection (in fact my latest sports card related purchase was a 1948 Bowman basketball wrapper) and put together a set of 1951 Bowman Jets, Rockets and Spacemen cards and am currently working on the 1950 Bowman Wild Man set.

I'm a lazy bastard because I love seeing photos of other people's collections, but never bother to show any of my own. One of these days I'll take some photos and post them (which I'll need to learn to do, of course).

Baseball books, such as that "written" by that noted author Ruth. A 1920 novel, in the hard to find dust jacket


and another fiction book by William Heyliger (Hawley Williams) with a very famous cover design, which appeared on numerous magazines...
