Default May Pickups

I thought I'd kick off May with an item I'm pretty excited about (technically purchased it last night, possibly before the clock struck May, but oh well...)

As some of you may know, I've been building a collection that chronicles Jackie Robinson's career, with particular focus on integration.

One of the things that I've always found interesting is the fact that long before 1947 and the Dodgers, Jackie played on integrated teams in college and the like.

On that note, I'm pretty excited about this pick-up. It's a full 10 years earlier than his joining the Dodgers and represents his first college experience. As was the case when Jackie was in high-school, his college teams were largely made up of white players.

The yearbook also has a signature from Mack Robinson, Jackie's brother, who won a silver metal in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.

Default Sandy Koufax

Freshly back from the framer:
I recently took a professional color slide that was taken during Sandy Koufax's 18K game against the Cubs in April of 1962 and had a high quality photo made of it.
18K's was Sandy's career high in strikeouts, and he also struck out 18 in a game in LA in 1959.

My local framer did a great job of pairing it with a circa 1964 era Sandy Koufax signature that I have had for several years. Wall space is a real premium in my office at this point, but this photo definitely made the cut.

I love it!

Must be a great month for framers...not new pickups, but newly framed pieces. Very happy with how these turned out....apologies in advance for the sore necks!! I just can't figure out why they are right side up in my photos, but sideways when I upload them...

Pretty happy to pick one of these up. One of Jeter's rarest signed "insert" cards.

Saw that listing and thought it was pretty cool. Had I known $500 would do it I probably would have bought it myself. Nice pickup!.
