Here's another vintage piece we just ran across -- a fleeting glimpse of Peo's baseball coin-op, World Championship Miniature Baseball,
in the background of a scene from Fritz Lang's excellent 1936 film, Fury, starring Spencer Tracy and Sylvia Sidney...

Thanks Carlton -- can't really take credit for spotting it, though. Someone else at our Baseball Games group sent that to us quite a while ago --
long enough ago that we can't remember who actually did notice it. Forgot we had it in our files until just the other day.
Plenty of sharp eyes among the membership...

Not a movie and not sure if they really exist but I'd love to find a Phil Rizzuto head keychain that says "Holy Cow!" when you squeeze it as featured on the famous "pothole" episode of Seinfeld.

I once won in a multi-movie studio charity auction a couple of retro (made for the movie) 1950 England World Cup soccer uniforms, including the high top handmade leather cleats. The jerseys were clearly custom/handmade for the movie-- first time I'd ever seen shirts with no tags of any kind anywhere. I eventually put one uniform up on eBay and a pub owner in London won it. I assume for display in the pub. The uniforms were donated directly to the auction by the studio that made the movie and came with LOAs from the studio.

David, What was the name of the movie the uniform made for?...

Blotto, the 1930 Laurel & Hardy comedy, ran on TCM last night (both the US release and the extended Spanish-language version).
Not quite halfway through the movie, Stan's wife goes to a sporting-goods store to buy a shotgun. In the background can be seen
a pictorial ad for tennis rackets, a box of balls for some undetermined sport, and, most prominently, a sign at the upper right of the shot that reads

BABE RUTH
Major League
xxxxxx xxx Xxxxxxx

along with other too-small-to-be-legible text. The last word might be "Gloves," but it's pretty blurry.

Edit: four and a half years later, here's a look, cribbed from YouTube [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NWXbBFI1Qw ]:

In the movie "Ordinary People" in one of the son's bedroom, there is some White Sox souvineers - one in particular is the Chicago Tribune 1959 Headline "White Sox Win Pennant" beer mug that sits on a shelf.

In the TV Sitcom "Parks and Recreation" in Chris Traeger's (Rob Lowe) office is a 1978 Wheaties box of Bruce Jenner.

Spotted this wrestling broadside in an old Superman episode.....for you youngsters that's George Reeves looking at it who played Superman/Clark Kent....who died under mysterious circumstances in 1959 at his home in the Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles
