Default c1880 salesman sample outbid...let's see your salesman samples

 photo PICT9060_zpscb501d8f.jpg
c1880 Silk Jockey Cap - 1 3/4" tall by 3 3/8" long by 2 1/2" wide

Got outbid yesterday on this c1880 salesman sample jockey cap on eBay...I've never owned a salesman sample before...and considering the horsey stuff I've gotten over the last year thought I'd try and add this...would have gone perfect with the die cut jockey cap card I got a while back...and the trotter clock...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ca1880-FANTA...p2047675.l2557
I hit it at $177.00 and got dusted in the backstretch...sold for $332.00...The seller happens to be a friend of mine and told me it sold to someone in France...I don't feel bad really, I'd sort of hate to have paid $177.00...$150.00 or below would have been more comfortable...Although...doubt I'll ever see another one!

Here are a couple of salesman/store sample bats from the 1890's. First is a J.F Hillerich Crackerjack #2 bat (pre-1897) made of balsa and the second is an American bat company No. 89 also made of balsa.

Wonder if anyone here collects miniature sports stuff, displaying it together.

It would be kind of cool to see a miniature hat, ball, glove, bat, baseball player doll - all early 1900's, together. You could use a large woodcut as a backdrop.

Kind of cool....and kind of expensive, I would bet.

Any chance the hat could just be a old dolls hat?

Good question. I was thinking, why would they have a salesman sample of an item that isn't normally very large, heavy or bulky?

Default I'm not going to be popular

but I don't think the hat or the basketball are salesman's samples. I think one would need to see the manufacturer's full sized cap and attribution or other evidence to make such a leap. I thought doll's hat the moment I opened the thread. As for the basketball - typically the piece duplicates ALL of the originals characteristics - for one the lines/groves look to be applied on the surface. Maybe you were kidding. Just putting a couple thoughts out here - not an expert - just thinking out loud.............

I agree, Salesman Sample is WAYYY overused. Typically Salesman Samples were for items large and heavy that were tough to transport - so hats etc would not need a "smaller" version to carry out. They may be promotional items or miniatures, but I just feel salesman sample tends to be used wrong and many times gets attributed to anything thats smaller or miniature with the original intended purpose of a salesman sample lost in the meantime...
