I love this thread, I love the odd and different myself.

You guys really have some great unique items, so as I come across stuff I will try to remember to put up a picture. I just found this in a box I was going through and love these items. I am not a huge college fan but love items of Hall of Famers from their high school, college or minor league careers. I think they are rarer and especially from the older players, not as much was saved.

Sorry I had to cut the pictures down so they would load.

And I find it interesting that it looks like his dad was his high school coach, never knew.

You donít see those around much anymore. I framed mine, too.

Would like to see other teams....

This is similar to the Coke signs, 3D plastic, 9 X 11 inches.

The grey area is actually white, but my scanner turns it grey because it's about 1/8th of an inch lower than the printed sections (so off the glass).

Those Coke signs are so cool and would make for a nice wall display. Hope they did make an Oís version. I know the Giants example looks great.

Thatís a great looking plastic sign as well; great detail. Do you know who made this particular one?

Might as well post something odd. Itís a plastic, almost real to life, almost to scale, an authentic reproduction Orioles bullpen cart.

I do not, and there are no markings on either side.

FYI - there is a guy on ebay who has a few of these on $30 BIN, with a best offer option. He isn't me, and I don't know him.

I would hate for my obviously crappy Ted Williams pick ups to kill this great thread bump.

Bump this thread back to the top.

Found this today in an old garage I am cleaning out. The lid has a 1959 date and the bottom has a 1958 date on it. Not really sure what it is yet. Has the words "Baseball Packing" on it in a few places. I need to clean it up, the layer of dust it THICK on the top.

Thanks Fred. I noticed that one and a few more exactly like it. Would have been really cool to have the partial ball thing still in it. The one difference I did find is the price in the top right corner is laid out differently on the one I have compared to all of them I could find.

If anybody collects these you can have the one I found for the price of shipping. I don't collect them and don't want to throw it away.

It looks much nicer after I wiped it down with a damp paper towel.

Lady's fleece vest designed by Marguerite Rubel. Ms. Rubel designed clothing from the 1940's through the 1980's. Her outerwear was carried by Macy's, Nordstrom's, Joseph Magnin and I. Magnin.

I guess the hanger is kind of oddball too. From the Mayfair Inn in Sanford, Florida...the Giants' Spring Training home before they moved to Arizona.

Seat cushion from the LA Dodger games at the Coliseum 1958-61 before Chavez was built. I know they rented cushions there, but I'm not sure if this is one of them.

I doubt that was a rental, Rick. I donít think the vinyl would hold up. The rentals at Seals and Candlestick were both heavy cloth; almost canvas.

Here’s a seat cushion made of the type of material you mentioned Rob from the old Topeka Owls Ballpark (kind of hard to read because it’s wrapped in plastic) and a colorized photo of a fellow who may have played in that park.

Makes sense Rob. I remember going to some games at the Coliseum with my grandfather and he rented cushions for us, and I believe we even rented them at Chavez, but I was pretty young and can't remember anything about them.

Hi Rick,
I believe it's likely that this seat cushion was a stadium giveaway. I recall having a similar Angels seat cushion from about the same time period.
If not it was sold at the stadium as a souvenir.

Iím not sure they even did stadium giveaways in the early Ď60s. The game was enough, I think.

Hi Mike,
Those Dock Ellis hair curlers are awesome!

I somehow forgot about Dock's LSD no-hitter anniversary.
Thanks for the reminder.
Here are a few fun items to share related to Dock Ellis's no-hitter on 6/12/69 @ SD Padres:

A ticket stub from Dock's no-hit game. Only one of three that I am aware in the hobby. At one time I owned the adjoining seat ticket and I found them separated by 15-20 years of collecting. Crazy! Ellis signed the back of the ticket for me at the MAB Pitcher Perfect show in NJ in 2006. I had a nice chat with Dock. A great memory... RIP Dock Ellis

A 1971 snapshot of Dock in the dugout.

A recap of the game that I picked up somewhere along the way.

Finally, a poster of the Dock Ellis LSD no-hitter that I just purchased tonight!


I'm still waiting to find a nice Type I photo of the Dock Ellis no-hitter.

By the way, TRIVIA TIME:
What is the only MLB team to NEVER throw a no-hitter?
Hint: There is only one and they are still an organization...

Great stuff Scott...

Pitching a no-no on LSD might even eclipse back-to-back no-hitters (in terms of improbability). Would love to see a Photo of the event, should you ever come across one.

I think I know the answer to your Trivia question, since I lived there for so long... The S.D. Padres, right?

Thanks Mark! You are correct, sir. The Padres have not thrown a no-hitter in 52 years as an organization. Unbelievable!
If you have not ever seen it, Dirk Lammers has a great blog on no-hitters called nonohitters.com. He continually keeps score on how many games have been played in the Padres no no-hitter streak. It's a great blog, BTW.
He also has written a good book on the no-hitter topic.

Great stuff, Dennis! I worked with a Hubbs (Russ) on the Las Vegas FD who was a descendant of Ken.

Default Babe Ruth

I don't know if schools still participate.

The Babe Ruth Foundation Sportsmanship Award was started by Ruth for underprivileged children who exhibited true sportsmanship during the school year.

I believe it was started around 1947 or so?

I picked up an unused plaque and award separately on eBay.

I also have an award given to a student - not sure where it is.

The plaque was made by Balfour (about 10x16") - I saw a pic where the plaque was placed with other school awards.

There are some pics on the net with students but no info.





On the back:



Individual award - never issued/engraved:





I had a writeup on this but couldn't find it - perhaps someone else has more info?

Default No-Hitter commemorative medallion ?

I have no idea as to the origins or maker of this oddball item other than the fact it obviously commemorates the no-hitter White Sox pitcher Joe Horlen's hurled in 1967 against the Tigers. Any information about it is truly appreciated.

Interesting. I've seen vending machine-like devices in amusement parks and tourist destinations where you can stamp letters and numbers of your choosing onto medallions like that.

Hi Bob,
I hope you are well!
These were individually made to say whatever info you wanted by a machine by inserting around a dollar.
I vividly remember seeing these at Disneyland in the 1960's- 1980's and actually made a couple of them myself. People would put them on their key chain.
Obviously the guy that made this one was a fan of your boy Joe Horlen.
Great pickup for you. Congrats!
I hope this helps

Default Ya gotta like odd

This one - while a toy watch store display attracted my eye since the TV in the background is a baseball game.



I've always liked store displays - especially if full.

Not sure what year/decade or if authentic. If real, I would guess a warehouse find due to condition?

Well, they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But these might put that old adage to the test. Regardless, here's a glimpse of the entire set...

My eye beholds ugliness. Only a couple are less than hideous.

Ah, c'mon Rob....

That depiction of your Giants is pretty cool, looking just like a Russian Cossack.

And look at that handsome profile of the Pirate!

I think the "artist" just gave up when he got around to the Yankees and Phillies.
