Default May pickups

Hope there's not a rule about who gets to start these threads, but I just had to share.

I acquired a stack of memorabilia belonging to a coach local to my hometown, Fresno, CA.

He was a little league coach to Tom Seaver and Jim Maloney. Here's a look at one of his notebooks/scrapbooks...fascinating stuff.

John,
Very cool pickup! I really love to look at old scrapbooks.

Jim Maloney and Tom Seaver were certainly two of the greatest hurlers (or players) to ever hail from Fresno. I think that Jim Maloney still lives there if I'm not mistaken.

BTW, I met Mr. Maloney about 3 years ago at Reds fest and had a chance to speak to him about his two no-hitters (and his third unofficial no-hitter). Great guy!

Very cool Joe. I never would have made the trophy connection but it's obvious now that you pointed it out

Default 1865 Harwood & Sons Baseball Letter

Fantastic 1865 Harwood and Sons Baseball Letter.
Thank you fellow member Paul for the piece and a deciphering job that was much better than my own.

Goes something like this...

Messrs. Gilbert & Wells,

We send you today for RR to ? 14 larger sacks which we suppose will hold balance of your stock of scraps.

If we were to pack them we should string up the sack at the 4 corners by cords to the joists on ceiling overhead just allowing the bottom of the sack to touch the floor--then put a man inside the sack to tend them and get in twice as many.

Yours respectfully,
H Harwood & Sons

Very cool Mike. Harwood was the first mfg of baseballs, I believe, and this letterhead is only a few years after they began operations.

Thanks Joe....and you are correct. Harwood was founded in 1858 and the first baseball factory in the world. Interesting that the original building was closed in 1998 and has now been converted into condominiums.
