I would love to know where the "loving cup" that Hal Chase is holding on his t206 is...

And then the gentleman next to me carefully opened his crumpled brown grocery bag and gently pulled out the Gerhig jersey. He allowed me to hold the jersey, and enjoy the moment. It was all kind of hush-hush, since he didn't want too much attention. But I'd have to imagine the word passed quickly down the waiting line of show attendees. The gentleman realized he had something valuable, and began to feel alittle vulnerable standing in the hotel hallway with his prized item. I would have felt quite uncomfortable too.

At prior shows, Mr. Mint or one of his "boys" would often come out a half hour or so before the show opened, and inquire what folks in line had to sell. After the gentleman next to me briefly opened his bag to let the Mint-man's rep take a peek (the jersey didn't come out of the bag), the rep hustled back into the closed showroom. Soon, out bursts the Mr. Mint himself, and my newfound "buddy" was hustled past the closed doors. Soon after, the deal was done.

I have no idea what Mr. Mint paid for that jersey, but it did appear thereafter in one (or two) of his SCD ads promoting the vast amounts of cash he recently spent, and the noteworthy collection/items he acquired. I'm just thrilled to say that "I was there".

Those were the days.
Did you ask how he had gotten the jersey?

Default Game Word Jersey Cards Ruth Gehrig

I remember years ago when the card companies started producing game-worn jersey cards of players like Babe Ruth Ruth and Lou Gehrig. I just can't picture in my head those uniforms being cut up and inserted into cards. And I don't begrudge anyone owning a Babe Ruth or Lou Gehrig jersey card, it's just sad that many of the few that existed were cut up.

Just reviving this thread.....although it may have been another where we all talked about what great piece of memorabilia would you love to have, like the Called Shot Home Run Ball, or Shoeless Joe's confession, perhaps Ty Cobb's cleats from the famous picture, Conlon's actual camera, etc etc.


Well I finally found one, maybe not of these magnitude, but pretty neat, I'll be posting later tonight.

Default Shoeless Ring

Holy Grail:

Years ago I was watching a TV show called "Flip this House" based in S.Carolina. In this episode they were moving Shoeless Joe Jackson's former home closer to the Minor League park and converting it to a museum. At the end of the episode, Shoeless Joe's grandson was there for the unveiling of the House/Museum. As he shakes the contractors hand, he slips off, and lets the contractor try on, Joe Jackson's 1917 World Series Ring !!!

Now, to me that is a "Holy Grail"...only one of those and it resides in the families possession. What is a guess on what that would bring? 2M ? More...

Side note: Josh Hamilton was in the episode, working on the job because he hadn't been reinstated yet.
