Default September Pick Up Thread

Five days into the month and no pickup thread yet? I guess I'll start one.

I picked up this Winter 1947 Puerto Rican Winter League scorebook to add to my collection. Several negro league players are spread around throughout the scorebook. This was on the eve of Robinson breaking the barrier just a few months later. There were six teams in the league: Caguas-Guayama, Ponce, Mayaguez, Aquadilla, San Juan and Santurce. This scorebook was the official team scorebook of Caguas-Guayama. They would go on to play in the championship playoff against Ponce to end the season. They also played a game against the Yankees. Some of the recognizable names include: Willard Brown (won triple crown), Dan Bankhead, Buster Clarkson, Monty Irvin, Larry Doby (Dobby in the scorebook), Alomar (Sandy Sr's dad), Hairston, Pedro Cepeda (Orlano's dad), Colmbre and others.

Two post-season programs.

1. 1934 Minneapolis Millers vs. American Association All-Stars

2. 1937 Bob Feller All-Stars game played in Minneapolis. DiMaggio is batting third and playing CF for the Feller team.

I love this Wright & Ditson baseball, both for its graphics and for its place in the story of “the evolution of the baseball,” which has been a key theme of my collecting for 25 years.

Some background: In 1884, George Wright, former star of the Cincinnati Red Stockings, became an owner of the Boston franchise of the Union Association of Base Ball Clubs, a rival major league that named Wright & Ditson as the exclusive supplier of its official ball. When the Union Association folded after its inaugural season, so did Wright & Ditson's standing as a supplier of major league baseballs. The company was acquired some time prior to 1892 by Spalding, which continued to make baseballs using the Wright & Ditson name.

On a separate note, if you have a nice example of a Heydler ball from 1931-1933, please let me know.

Agree.... Those goofy graphics are so great, and really capture the mid-century era.

Wonderful pickups Chris!

That baseball is awesome. My collecting was from 1800s thru the 1950s. But 19th century is my favorite. Great piece.
