Hard to say, but one really cool thing I found is as follows:

Maris, Roger (1934-1985). Indians, Athletics, Yankees, Cardinals. Here is a true gem! This vintage Reach OAL Joe Cronin baseball has been signed by Maris (7/10) on a side panel. What makes this ball unique is that the ball was also signed on an opposite panel by Tracy Stallard (8/10), who served up Maris' historic 61st home run in 1961. As if that isn't enough, the panel signed by Maris is also graced by the signature of Sal Durante (rating 5/10), who was the lucky young man who caught Maris' 61st HR ball! This item was signed back in that record-setting year. The idea of “theme” balls such as these was barely in existence back in the early 1960's. There are a few Maris/Stallard signed photos floating around, but I know of NO OTHER dual-signed baseball! This was given as a prize at the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle and was obtained from its original owner. A full JSA LOA is provided with this piece. The ball itself would grade about 7/10. Historic!

And yes, it's for sale.

Great topic Dan. This is obvious for me as well. And some what anticlimactic for the rest of you as I just posted my Tigers pennant. Here are the runner ups.

The highlight of my year was picking up a pillowcase w/Cobb, Baker, Mathewson, Speaker, & Johnson. I had purchased another S110 w/ O'Toole awhile back & was thrilled with it, but when I found the one with Johnson, forget about it. I like T3's, I have a Cy Young that I'll keep for a long time, but the large display value of the S110s with the greats of the game just blows me away. If only Honus would have been included.

I don't buy much anymore but I did pick up an 1860 Base Ball Player's Pocket Companion, so that will have to qualify as my best for 2007.

Of course, I assume consignments don't count.

It's been a great year for my collection as I added four items that had been on my wish list for years. A rare double knob Lajoie bat, Joe Wood Ness City, Kansas photo, 1972 Orioles away jersey, and with Dan B's help a Duff Cooley postcard. It's difficult to choose one so I picked the one I haven't shown in awhile.

Dan,
Great topic. I know that picture was your "Holy Grail" when you told me you were getting it. Very nice by the way. I finally came across my Holy Grail to make my Maris 60 in 61 have its mate. I know Aaron M has been looking for one also. Very hard to find a nice one. Sorry Aaron I have been looking longer!!

My pick is my c. 1880-90's Victorian trophy....

The Bob Allen collection, over 600 letters and baseball correspondances from players, managers, and family members dating from 1888-1891. My best find ever.

Hi, Brock. The letters were removed during the '73-'75 renovation, and sold by the demolition company. I bought the M from the original buyer.

This just illustrates one of the greatest aspects of memorabilia collecting. Just look at the array of options and niches. For me, Aaron's trophy and Clint's bat would make the best additions to my collection, but I have a great appreciation for the photos, pins, and everything with visual appeal. Others prefer historical significance and a team association. I LOVE IT ALL!!!

Clint... That LaJoie Bat is sweeeeeet! Is that the one from Hunt's a while back? I do not recall seeing another of these for quite some time.

This is probably my best pickup of 2007... Charlie Gehringer's teammates all pitched in to get him this Desk Set for his 40th Birthday. The plaque is engraved to him, and features an amazing (and heavy) figural Tiger.

Another neat thing about it is Charlie's teeth marks at the ends of the pens (if you look closely, you'll see them!)

Mike H. - the irony certainly isn't lost on the fact that one of your favorite purchases of the year was a box of underwear!

For me, I'd go with a large silver print of the first champions of the NFL (Akron - 1920) including Fritz Pollard.

If it has to be baseball, I'd say an 1895 scorebook with some games of the Cuban Giants (including Frank Grant).

Now in a PSA 8 holder, how about an 1896 Honus Wagner/Ed Barrow - Paterson, NJ pinback produced by Whitehead & Hoag, the same company that would produce the 1898 Cameo Pepsin pins...........

I acquired this team signed sheet late last month. Not earth-shaking, but getting progressively harder to find. Would display nicely with Mike H.'s 1940 Detroit pennant (which is awesome, I must add).


Thanks.

Thanks guys! This fan really is stunning in person.

I live in a small town where word travels fast. A few people found out I collected vintage baseball cards and memorabilia and the word spread. I got a call from a woman in my town who was a fan collector in the 1960's. She said she had a baseball fan she was looking to sell because she was planning on selling off her collection. As she was decribing the fan over the phone I immediatly knew what it was but figured it would be fake. When I went to her house it was a different story, It was real!!!! and she only lived 7 miles from my house

A interesting item I recently acquired was a first edition of a book published in 1796 in Germany. The book, titled "Games for the Exercise and Recreation of Body and Spirit for Youth" and written by arguably the most influential German author about children's games, describes in detail many different games children played at that time. In it is a section on what is described as "Ball with free station (or English Base-ball)." About 7 pages plus a diagram are devoted to describing the rules of the game. These published rules, many of which apply today, predate by 49 years the Knickerbocker rules. To my knowledge this is the earliest publication of baseball rules, as well as the first published reference to the word "bat" in a baseball context. This book does as good a job as any of dispelling the fiction that Abner Doubleday had anything to do with the invention of baseball, or that baseball is American in origin. Whether baseball was actually played in Germany in the 18th century is a matter of debate, as it is clear by their description that these rules came from the game played in England.

Well, it's by far not the most expensive thing I picked up, but definitely the most interesting (and possibly the rarest). I bought a hardcover book about the Brooklyn Dodgers signed twice by Hilda Chester (once on a photo of her--the only known signed image). I only know of one other Hilda Chester autograph in existence, so, being a huge Brooklyn fan, picking this up was quite a thrill. I don't even know when she died. Does anyone have any detailed biographical info on her?

If you can give me a birth date for her I can refine this search better. From the info I guessed on, this is the only match that showed up on the Social Security Death Index. Might not be her, but it could be. Cut and pasted from the Social Security Index

Thanks. Actually, I had done a similar search a while back and had forgotten about it.

Of course, in those days, next to nobody would have thought to ask for a fellow fan's autograph. Hilda ranks right up there with 'Nuf Ced McGreevey in the fans' hall of fame. They're undoubtedly the two most famous fans in baseball history.
