Default November Pick-Ups

I'm someone there have been some pick-ups this month, now let's see them!

I'll start us off with a 1941 Play Ball Pee Wee Reese signed rookie. I believe there are very few of them, I have only seen one other in a private collection, so I had to have it, plus I love the '41 PB set

Sorry about the pic, it's a pic from the seller

Just got these back from an Aaron Hill signing. Full season tickets from each of his Cycles in 2012 and the ball he hit for a homerun in his 2nd cycle.

Thanks, I like your Pee Wee signed rookie. I had thought of collecting signed rookies before but there seems to be a lot of people doing it. I am a blue collar guy so I went after ticket collecting years ago since not many people were involved. Seems to be picking up now.

Nice items, especially the ball. Did you catch it at the game? Hill is a class act. Too bad we lost him as a Jay, but he was just too hot and cold with us.

I don't know what it is about this card, but I just had to have it. I love the way the signature looks against the yellow. And its a nice vintage Hank.

From his IBHOF biography:

"Born November 26, 1873 in Dundalk, Ireland. As a youth, he ran away from home and went to sea as a cabin boy. Sharkey arrived in New York in 1892 where he joined the U.S. Navy. Quickly promoted to "master-at-arms" he was deployed to Hawaii where he began his pro career with 20 consecutive knockouts.

In 1896 he met his first stern challenge when he went the distance with Hall of Famer Joe Choynski and claimed victory after 8 rough rounds. World heavyweight champion James J. Corbett witnessed the bout and challenged Sharkey, confident his boxing ability would be too much for the young Irishmen. The 4-round bout was declared a draw due to police interference, but spectators had no doubt that Sharkey had bested the champion. Sharkey next engaged his idol, John L. Sullivan, in a 3-round exhibition bout before defeating future heavyweight king Bob Fitzsimmons via a controversial 8th round foul (Referee Wyatt Earp ruled that a right hand that felled Sharkey for the 10-count was a low blow). In 1898 he lost a close decision to future champion James J. Jeffries, topped Gus Ruhlin in one round and defeated Corbett via 9th round foul.


A 10th round stoppage over Kid McCoy set up an 1899 world heavyweight title contest with Jeffries at Coney Island. After 25 furious rounds, Jeffries was declared the winner by referee George Siler in a disputed decision. Sharkey continued to box, stopping Joe Goddard and Choynski before losing back to back bouts to Ruhlin and Fitzsimmons. He retired from the ring in 1904 with a record of 40-6-3ND (37KOs).


Although never a champion, the barrel-chested slugger is regarded as a ring immortal of his era. In retirement he toured with Jeffries in vaudeville shows. He died on April 17, 1953 in San Francisco."

Chris, I bought the ball directly from the kid that caught it. I also got his ticket from the TGI Fridays HR Porch where it bounced into plus there was a great video of him catching it. I made him send me photos of him wearing the same clothes, plus he signed a notarized statement, so other than catching it yourself I think he passed the burden of proof. I sent the documents along with the ball to be signed so Aaron could see it was legit. I guess it passed because he signed it the way he did.

I remember him with the Jays and he was always a solid player.

Default Love this pickup from Jim Stinson

picked up this neat Bill Veeck Cut from Jim Stinson earlier this week... Got it back from my framer today...

The picture tells it all! Ned Garver & fellow Browns teamates present owner Bill Veeck with a Silver Cup for firing Rogers Hornsby as manager in 1952...

The trophy read: " For the greatest play since the Emancipation Proclamation"

Thansk Again Jim!

Default Ted Williams Highway Sign

Pretty psyched to have gotten this one... My dad picked it up at an estate sale in Medfield Mass which turned out the be the house of James Kerasiotes who was the former Secretaty of Transportation in Massachusetts

He was responsible for the renaming of Rte 9 in Massachusetts to the Ted Williams Highway and Tunnell...

Measures 2' x 2' and is going to make a great display piece once framed and matted with a Teddy Ball Game Auto...

Default Awesome eBay Vander Meer purchase!

I just picked up a terrific unique item for my Johnny Vander Meer collection for under $15- delivered!

Here is an original signed 8" x 11" photo of Vandy's entire March 1944 Basic Training graduating class. The photo is also signed on the front and back by every one of the 85 men from Company 347 (Sampson, NY).

Also accompanying the photo is an original letter from the wife of one of Vandy's basic training company mates, Anthony Leonovich. She discusses how proud her husband was to have graduated with "Johnny Vander Meer- the guy that threw 2 no-hitters in succession".

Vander Meer is pictured 4th from the bottom right and signed the photo directly below his photo. Anthony Leonovich is the 6th guy to the right at top left.

Pretty cool!

This photo of former bantamweight champ Alphonse Halimi is inscribed on the back and references his trip to Los Angeles in 1960 where he lost his bid to recapture the title. I had to send to France to get a Los Angeles-related piece!

Default non-sport autographed cabinet card

I collect cabinet cards and have a short list of desired autographs, so I was thrilled to acquire this Sarah Bernhardt-autographed Nadar cabinet. Also picked up the signed card below, which I believe is a calling card being used to give the bearer 6 tickets to a play:

Thanks - I try to avoid the sharpie Bernhardt autos

I put in reasonable bids on both items, hoping to win one, so if anyone has a nice G.B. Shaw (or anything else interesting) they are interested in trading, please contact me.

I couldn't pass up the price, even though I have most of the HOF in my collection already. Nearly 20 HOF for less than $80.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/230880306225...84.m1423.l2649

I bid the lowest possible, thinking for sure I would be outbid.

Nice Yaz, is it the photo or is the sharpie look odd when it hits the blue?

One of the benefits of (formerly) working for a public utility in MA was that I had access to many addresses and phone numbers...I got Yaz's address...sent him a card with an sase and got it back within 4 days....awesome!

Pretty sure that is illegal. You can't solicit customers on behalf of the company (which you didn't do) and I believe you cannot use information from your company that isn't public record for personal gains (I believe they make you sign an NDA). But thats just me being jealous

Scott,

Put me down as also loving that VanderMeer photo -- that's the kind of thing that really sets your collection apart. I also really like the boot drawing on the back -- if you frame it I would go with double-sided glass.

Not exactly an autograph but I picked up this photo of The Babe last night. I love it. He's signing bats while in the military for other soldiers stationed around the country. The tags on the bats have the names of different bases on them.

The best part about the photo though is that it was taken on July 22, 1926. Exactly 59 years to the day before I was born.

Can't complain for $24 on the bay...

He's signing bats while in a military uniform. He was never in the military.
