Hey, Chris: I have an Associated News Service poster with that image dated Oct. 27, 1924.

Bob: The article that accompanied the picture of the bunch of them said that a total of 50 were produced. I've always assumed they were sold to defray the cost of Dunbar's work when the big statue never got authorized.

Clint: I think the red "W" was painted on after the fact, I've only seen the one like that.

That’s an incredible statue Bob! Great to know that another one has surfaced. The details are amazing and unlike so many others the likeness is perfect.

Picked these up at the Houston TriStar show this past weekend. I collect Orioles publications and was lacking both All Star programs. Now all I need for a complete run of Orioles guides/yearbooks etc are the '54 and '56 media guides.



I paid dearly for it but I didn't know when I'd find another one in nice condition. And it came with this:



The dealer had this for sale as well so I made him an offer for the pair and he accepted. Which made me think I could have made a lower offer.



It also came with a ticker stub.

Hi Clint, I was answering your question about the red "W," no idea why I got your name wrong. I'll pin it on old age!

Excited to pick up these trophy balls from the 1903 and 1904 Army - Navy football game as well as an unused ticket to the 1904 game. Not sure if I should leave them as is or have the refurbished.

It never ceases to amaze me what’s “out there.” I would leave them alone. They’re fantastic.

Great pick ups! I love older programs & yearbooks.
