Default Old Timers Day Awards/Gifts

Only have a few, but really like the awards that were given to former players for their participation at various Old Timers Day. Would love to see what others have.

Half golf bag given to and autographed by Milt Pappas for Cubs Hall of Fame Classic in 1983

Default Johnny Vander Meer Old Timers Bat 1971

Here is Johnny Vander Meer's Old Timers bat from 1971 at Philly. This came directly from the estate of Vander Meer's family.

The bat weighs a ton and is at least 36" long!!

Been a while since I was able to add an Old Timer’s piece to my collection. Picked up a clock given to Milt Pappas for Cubs Old Timer’s Day in 1977

Nice, Jonathan!
BTW, on 9/2/72 Milt Pappas came within one pitch of a perfect game.
Pappas always claimed that the home plate umpire robbed him of the PG, by calling an obvious strike a ball allowing the 27th batter he faced to walk: the only blemish in an otherwise perfect game.

Picked up this 1965 Mets Old Timers Pouring Cup given to Bobby Thomson. Unfortunately the Mets emblem has fallen off. It’s a little tarnished, have to try and clean it up a bit.

My uncle covered the Pirates from 66-86 (before that, he was at the Long Island Press covering both baseball and football Giants, Yankees after that). He had a ton of stuff. He lived in North Versailles for 40+ years and his neighbor and best friend was a former MLBer, Pirate. We were regaled of very, very un complimentary stories of Roberto Clemente. The guy seemed nice enough. As my uncle was at the beginning stages of senility, my mother sort of figured out that the neighbor/friend was taking things from my uncle. As my folks moved my uncle out of Pennsylvania and to Long Island, my mother was carrying out the last remaining piece of memorabilia: my uncle’s HoF bat - a Bill Mazerowski model with my uncles name on it. The former Pirate apparently touched my mother’s shoulder and said, “Charley promised that to me” my mother stated, “it’s a family heirloom, it stays with his family.”

I believe my uncle had WS rings, a lot of stuff. Once in a blue moon, he’d send us memorabilia. Not much. I wonder just how much the former Pirate absconded with? I wonder just how true the Clemente stories were coming from that source. If anybody has Charley Feeney Pittsburgh Post Gazette items, I’d be interested in finding out about them!

I really should have posted this somewhere else and not sidetracked this great thread. But it is definitely sort of, well, sad.
