I found these beauties on eBay a few weeks back. One is a 1938 Boston Bees Cap, while the other is an early 1950s Hollywood Stars cap. The latter was worn by Howie Haak, who pioneered scouting in the Caribbean, and was instrumental in the Pirates' fleecing of Roberto Clemente from the Dodgers.

It took 30 years but I finally got them signed today at the National. These are Ozzie Smith's spikes from 1979.

Hi Chris, who's the maker of the St. Paul cap? That's a real find — there can't be too many of those still around. I recently took the plunge into old minor league caps ...

Mike...……...Those Ozzie spikes are awesome. Glad to see you changed up the inscriptions and even how he signed his first name. Nice!

Mike,
Those Ozzie spikes are the bomb!! Very cool.
I can't believe you were at the National & I missed you.
I just returned last night. Wish I knew you were coming to Chicago...

Default Vida Blue no-hitter ticket

One of my favorite pickup from the 2019 National was this really nice example of the super scarce Vida Blue no-hitter ticket on September 21, 1970.
Many thanks to long-time hobby friend & dealer Mark Macrae which found this for me. This upgrades the one I previously had in my collection that took me 44 years to locate.

Only 4,284 people attended this game making this absolutely one of the most challenging no-hitter tickets to find post WWII.

BTW, the 2019 National in Chicago was a blast! I had a lot of fun hanging out with many hobby friends. It was great running into Carlton, Graig Kriendler, & Tim Carroll from net54.

Awsome Vida Blue ticket Scott. I have been here two days and have not found one 1971 Pirates ticket. I did pick up this Clemente memorial item which originated from the Clemente family. I'm getting my Reggie Jackson gamer signed today and will fly out tomorrow. I attended the Net54 event last night and met a few people. This has been a great experience. Sorry I missed you.

Great stuff guys!

Mike might appreciate this addition to my low end Giants collection. The postal district, rather than ZIP code, dates it pre-1963. Alas and alack, it did not light up when I installed a fresh "N" battery.

Has anyone seen similar light up pins for other teams?

Both Reggie and Ozzie proved my point that penmanship is dead among today's players.

I totally agree. Both of them were very meticulous. I had heard bad thinks about Reggie being unfriendly. He was quite the opposite with me. When I handed him the bat he held it in his hands and commented to his assistant that it was the real deal he said it was a gamer. He stood and took a little swing with it and said. "Wow this one feels so right". He smiled and asked me where I got it. He signed it and then rolled back and forth on the table before handed it back to me. He shook my hand and was delightful. It was interesting watching him admire the bat like a craftsman. I suppose that is what makes bat collecting so enticing. He certainly was not the ogre I have always been told he was.

These were my two big pickups at the National. I’m very happy and it made the trip a success!

1. November 1896 Outing Magazine Advertising Poster - This is exactly the type of thing I came for and I couldn’t be happier. I wish I could have found more items like it, but this made the trip worth it.

2. 1910-ish Oklahoma Baseball Pennant - I have no idea what team this is for or where to put it, but it had to come home with me. It’s huge and obvously in rough shape. I’ve located a local textile conservator (who knew), so the next step is figuring out how to save this thing.

Please post an “after” picture of that pennant!

You might also want to post it in the “Hey, pennant guys” thread. Lots of pennant knowledge over there.

Thanks, Chris! Spalding was the manufacturer.

That Bees hat is a stunner! It's in beautiful condition. I thought it was interesting that the leather band matches this example:

Chris, it was that McKechnie cap I used to verify the authenticity of mine. The one I have is missing the Horace Partridge patch, which was glued to the inside, and not stitched. When looking at mine under a bright light, you can see the outline of the patch and light glue residue from where it was attached.

Two of my favorite National pick ups. The framed team picture is believed to be the 1897 Temple Owls. I haven't been able to verify that yet. Image is 16" x 13". The second is a 1902 copyright football print by John Sheridan, Princeton football.

Default National pickup

Nice pickup Bob. I saw your trophy sitting in the showcase with a 'Sold' tag on it. I have a Spalding pitcher, but it's my only one, so I can't part with it.

While not a Spalding trophy, I picked this one up after a little negotiating with Keith Javic (sp?). Glad I brought it home. It's dated 1929 and is from a Buffalo, NY. American Legion league. It's about 14" tall and rather heavy.

This is a wire photo of Babe Ruth playing a benefit game with the St. Paul and Minneapolis police right after he retired in 1935. He played half the game with each team.

I picked up this Rawlings Advisory Staff photo of Reggie in the most recent Clean Sweep auction. The auto is an early version. I had not seen this one before. I thought it paired well my Jackson game used bat. I don't often venture away from my focus on the 1971 Pirates however when I do it seems Reggie is involved.

A far cry from some of the stunning National pickups posted here, but these are some of the finds from my week of estate sales and flea markets. The panorama is a 1920 Saratoga Race Course. I picked up the 1960s drink cart to display baseball glasses.

Default Two more nice no-hitter ticket pickups this week

Congrats on your pickups this month guys! Some really great ones.

I managed to scratch off another very difficult ticket that I have had on my want list forever:

Montreal Expos pitcher David Palmer hurled a 5 inning abbreviated Perfect Game in the second game of a DH on April 21, 1984 @ ST. LOUIS.
This is only the 1st ticket to Palmer's gem that I have ever seen. It came from a huge ST.L. ticket collection that was acquired at The National by a dealer friend of mine.
I'm really happy to own it, and the fact that it is a full ticket is a bonus.
David Palmer's Perfect Game was recognized as such until 1991 when MLB changed the rules about what defined a "Perfect Game"

I also added this beautiful Season Super Suite ticket to HOF pitcher Jack Morris's
no-hitter against the hometown White Sox on April 7, 1984.


I now need tickets to only 13 more no-hitter games dating back to 1930...


BTW, out of this ST.L ticket collection that I mentioned previously, I also picked up tickets to two new Nolan Ryan pitching appearances.
I now need only 43 ticket dates to have a ticket to every one of Nolan's 807 career regular season games.


Christmas arrived early in August!

Nice tickets Scott -- never liked that change to the no hitter rules.

Thanks for the comment on the drink cart Jack -- always fun to find a unique way to display baseball collectibles!

The Senators piece is basically a folder for papers -- it's dated 1968 and was produced by Major League Promotion Corp -- I've never seen one before.

I believe I have the program to this game. I always liked that photo. I have a scan of it somewhere.

Just got this in last week to add to my Matty collection. This is the first photo I've seen of the three Mathewson Brothers Christy, Henry and Nicholas...I'm guessing c.1907. Sadly all three passed away far too early. Most of you know that Matty passed away in 1925 after a long bout following his exposure to mustard gas in WW1. His brother Henry died of Tuberculosis at 31 in 1917. Nicholas committed suicide at the age of 18 in 1909. Here's a little piece I found about him

"Nicholas was the youngest Mathewson sibling, and at one time had been considered a more promising pitcher than both older brothers. Nicholas was a favorite of John McGraw, who would send used uniforms and equipment to Nick. Being able to distribute these items around Factoryville made Nick a popular fellow with Factoryville’s youngsters. Nicholas was also a right-handed pitcher and the star of the team at Keystone Academy, but after that his path diverged from that of his brothers. The Detroit Tigers, under McGraw’s friend Hughie Jennings, were interested in obtaining the youngest Mathewson pitcher with an offer of $3,000, but Gilbert Mathewson turned down the offer, thinking that his son was too young. Instead of attending college at Bucknell, Nick went off to Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. During his first fall at Lafayette, Nicholas became ill and returned home before the semester ended. While recuperating at home, he became anxious that he was falling behind in his work at school. His family did not realize how much he was suffering mentally. One afternoon shortly after the turn of the New Year, Nick headed out of the family home. He climbed into the loft of the barn, wrote a cryptic note, and raised a pistol to his head. As the day became late, his concerned family began to search for him. Gilbert discovered his son’s body in the loft. Nicholas was rushed to a hospital in Scranton, but too much damage had been done and his life could not be spared. News papers confused the Mathewson brothers; some papers had reported that it was Henry who had committed suicide."

I mean, who doesn't need a 9' x 3' banner from the SF Giants 2014 World Series parade?

My brother in law told me, "I watch a lot of baseball and Kruk and Kuip are the best (announcers)." We are both biased Giants fans but I agree. Mike Krukow won 20 games for the 1986 Giants. Duane Kuiper's claim to fame is one HR in 3379 MLB AB's. I've seen video...it barely got out. Kruk, Kuip and Jon Miller are in the back of the bus.

Great adds everyone, but I think my favorites are the Reggie pick ups from 71Bucs.

I forgot to post my favorite flea market find of the past two weeks -- this huge vintage ad for Kodak -- it's just under 2 feet x 3 feet. The glove cardboard poster was also a local find.
The tablet and Spalding paperweight are from Ebay.
