Default sports props

Funny just finished watching Going My Way (1944) With Bing Crosby. In the movie Bing wares a nice St, Louis Browns Cap and Warm up jacket that he says The Boys Gave him! Bing plays a priest and is trying to get a choir together and uses the cap and jacket thru the movie.

Hi Brad -

I watched this on DVD recently and I distinctly recall seeing a Grove photo on the wall of the room in which the scouts meet. Several scenes from the movie are done in this room. I think the photo appears in a shot of Jonah Hill, behind him on the wall.

I could be proven wrong.

Default My Three Sons

While watching the 1960's T.V. series My Three Sons starring Fred MacMurray I noticed three pieces of sports memorabilia decor in the house. Moreover, all the rest of the wall pictures I saw were English sporting prints...and a large dog painting or print....not a stitch of flowers or chick art in the place!

For those of you who weren't around in the early to mid 1960's My Three Sons was one of the most popular shows then. The premise of the show was Fred MacMurray played a widower raising three boys. William Frawley who previously played Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy played the gruff outspoken salt of the earth grandfather who did the cooking and housekeeping in the early seasons.

An avid New York Yankees baseball fan, Frawley had it written into his I Love Lucy contract that he did not have to work during the World Series if the Yankees were playing. The Yankees were in every World Series during that time except for 1954 and 1959. He missed two episodes of the show as a result. Source Wikipedia

Stanley Livingston who played youngest son Chip gave an interesting newspaper interview September 18, 2011, link above, in which he talked about his close relationship with William Frawley even though Frawley didn't like kids per se.

Not really vintage, but I think Liz Lemon has a poster and jersey of Mike Schmidt on the wall in her bedroom on "30 Rock".

The Hustler could be one of the greatest sports movies of all time.
I like how Mosconi himself is the person racking up the balls in the big match between "Fast Eddie" and "Minnesota Fats". If you listen close, Gleason calls him, "Willie". Classic cinema. Btw, was there a find of that poster as I have seen it many times in the past. I saw its not dated in the advertising date area.

Duluth, Reproductions abound...the real ones have fold lines and are scarce...the repos are pretty easy to spot

Default Mosconi Advertising

This is currenty on the bay as a buy it now.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/WILLIE-MOSCO...item3cc9fa36f4

It has, in red below the date and time line, "Read Masconi on Pocket Billiards."

Could this be a later addition or somthing that made it on some posters and not others? It looks like the phrase appears on the poster in the movie.

Mat, I checked that out...looks completly legit...I feel confident it's original...heck it has a LOA from Hunt Auctions...listing said the seller had 3...I emailed him and asked:

"Would you know how many of these there were total from the estate? May I ask did you buy them all?"

Guy wrote back:
"We purchased a group of 10, as I remember there were (2) groups of 10, so 20 total"

I'm confident mine is real because of the faint age toning and folds...the one in the listing has folds and an LOA....BUY!!

I got mine at Brimfield....I bought a Bill Tilden tennis match poster from a guy for like $600.00 as I recall....later I came back to look at it since he was holding it after I paid for it....and he had the Mosconi out...and I was all over it...said he forgot he had it and put it out after I left...think I gave $300.00...read the whole account in the link above

At the end of Sweet Home Alabama there is an old Piedmont cigarette ad on the stairs as Jake comes down. The ad prolly measures 36"x 30".

Default Trouble With The Curve

Trouble With The Curve, starring Clint Eastwood as an aging baseball scout, won't be released until next week. I haven't seen the film yet (obviously), but have seen the preview several times, and see some very familiar photos.

The movie was filmed in and around Atlanta, with a lot of shots in Turner Field and in the Braves' offices. When the Braves moved into Turner Field in 1997 and opened their Hall of Fame and Museum, I loaned the museum numerous player photos which they copied and have used in displays at the museum and around the ballpark. (That's not as strange as it sounds - not a lot of material survived the moves from Boston to Milwaukee to Atlanta, and they had photos of Spahn and Mathews from Milwaukee but not Boston, etc.).

So, when I saw the previews, with some shots in the Braves' offices, I sat up and thought - "Hey, there's my pictures!" I'm looking forward to seeing the movie next week - I just regret that I was out of town while they were doing the filming, I'd love to have been an extra in the crowd shots, or whatever!
