Default Nellie fox

Picked up this nice example of a 1964 Nellie Fox game used bat when he was a member of the Houston Colt 45's. Bat is a C 12 model--is 34 inches in length and currently weighs 32.6 oz which is only .4 short of what I believe the original order weight was.

Picked up a program from Carl Yastrzemski’s first career game and hit, April 11, 1961. The seller also included a lot of old Boston newspapers from 1967 pennant and Yaz milestones/retirement. Not sure what to do with the newspapers but the program was high on my interest list for a great price!

Picked up these oddball Ted Williams weights. The red 5LBer is my favorite.

Not sure what time frame these Sears, Roebuck and Co weights comes from so any info would be greatly appreciated.

Early to mid 60s most likely. Sears signed Ted Williams in 1962 to endorse their wide range of "outdoor sports" products after his retirement. So his name/signature is on Sears branded tents, guns, bicycles, weight sets, fishing equipment and of course, Sears model baseball equipment.

Here's a short vintage SI article about his endorsement signing:

I have a Sears Ted Williams endorsed fielders mitt that I deployed after my Rawlings glove was stolen in 1973.
Based on your pictures, I would actually guess late 1960's or early 1970's.
I seem to remember these when shopping at Sears. Use old Sears catalogues to fill in the time gap, just as an FYI

I'd agree with late 60's, early 70's. I had the same weights that I got in 74 when I started High School. Kept those darn things for 30 years, until I just didn't want to move them again.

I recently picked up this 1971 Giants vs Pirates NLCS program. It is considered to be the rarest Championship Series program. I have no idea how that was determined. Prices on these range from $400 to $750 which essentially excluded it form my want list. I was lucky enough to land this one at a fraction of the cost from an eBay seller who had no idea of its rarity. I also added four Malcolm Emmons 8X10s of Manny Sanguillen, Dock Ellis, and Bob Robertson.

Great stuff!

I could tell those were Emmons' images before I even read your text. Classic style! He is the greatest of all the post-war photographers, IMHO.

Nice pickups!
