Let's see 'em! I'll start...another piece for my oddball A's collection. This is a Rob Nelson game used bat from 1986. Nelson was the guy who was supposed to be the big 1B prospect...until he got off to a slow start in '87 and they slid McGwire back over from third.

So big a prospect he was using another dude’s bat?

BTW - JR Phillips was gonna “replace” Will Clark, across the Bay.

A K.C. Monarchs vs. House of David barnstorming ticket stub. It came in a lot of 1930s St. Paul Saints ticket stubs, so it could very well be from a game played at Lexington Park. So far, I've seen some references to them touring up here in 1934, but am still researching potential dates.

Picked up this cool Jim Rice bat. I think it is a pro model? But with someone else's number on the knob; so maybe a teammate? Minor Leagues?

And, a picked up this EPIC ticket from a good friend of mine. I am very excited to put that in the baseball case.

Hey Sean,

Cooper bats were first used in the Majors in 1986. I check the Red Sox roster for Rice's remaining years. Spike Owen wore #5 in 1986, Brady Anderson and Randy Kutcher in 1988, and Kutcher again in 1989. You could look and see if any of those three had a history of using tape on bats. I actually thought Brady Anderson did some, but you would have to look into it. Here's a pic of him from 1988. Cool pick up and good luck!

Default Thanks!

My buddy said the same thing; he thought it might have been Anderson.
I basically picked it up because (relatively speaking) it was super cheap, and I think it is the pro model Jim Rice.
I briefly looked last night, and Brady did tape his bats, although I didn't see the same exact pattern.
Something to do some research on for sure, when I get some time!

I remember JR Phillips! But yeah...I assume Nelson had his own bats by '87 when he made the team out of ST...but this is from his Sept. '86 callup.

Default Way cool finds at the flea market

I had a rare afternoon off today; so I decided to drive down to the local indoor flea market/antique mall. Once, I scored an AWESOME UMaine baseball jersey, so I am always hopeful.

As I was browsing, I came across a box of old photos and RPPCs in the back of one of the booths. I happened to notice a baseball cap in the back, so I picked it up and started looking. And came up with GOLD!!!

1) I think it is a Brooklyn Dodgers player (don't know who?).
2) Same player, but now I believe that is Jackie in the background!
3) West Point RPPC.
4) Some kind of WWII plane.
5) This one looked like nothing, but was in with the WWII plane. Check out the inscription on the back!!! Is that the same Jimmie Doolittle who raided Tokyo?!?!?!
6) Some kind of gunslinger outlaw dude RPPC! I know, not sports, but the planes/outlaw guy just looked cool, so I thought I would share.

Just got these back from PSA. This is the first baseball game that I attended. My Mom and Dad took me for my 9th birthday. Both of them passed away 5 months apart recently and I dug these up and sent them to PSA. The cool thing is the seats are 16-17-18 in a row. They both were avid supporters of the hobby and I miss them dearly. My Dad was 94 and went to the National with me in Chicago a couple of years ago and attended the net54 banquet while we were there.327CB4CD-FB7F-4249-8057-EBFD663F5903.jpg

Default Duke and the Babe

Being a collector and living at the beach, I got this snapshot of Babe Ruth and Duke Kahanamoku at Waikiki Beach included in a trade. In addition to Babe and Duke, note the guy holding a paddle like a bat.

Never have a problem picking up a framed display piece for less than what it would cost for the custom frame.

Michael-

I lived in Hoboken for 5 years, and our building was built on the land where the very first recorded "Base Ball" game took place...on the water, overlooking the city.

Default 1941 Briggs Stadium baseball...

I picked up this old OAL Reach baseball from a local antiques dealer. The inscription reads, "Briggs Stadium, May 4, 1941, Foul ball by Priddy of the Yankees, Tigers vs. NY Yankees, 7th foul ball hit by him that day."

I looked up the box score and the date matches up. The Tigers won 10-1 with Bobo Newsom getting the win. Joe DiMaggio hit a double and started his 56 game streak 11 days later.

This roll of 500 stickers appears to have been used in the manufacturing of the 1971 Three Rivers Stadium models. However, the text on the stickers differs from that on the models I have seen. I thought there were three variations of the scoreboard now it appears that there is a version with the Pittsburgh Pirates text on the infield. I know it's silly but now I will be searching for one of those.
