I always enjoyed this thread and thought it was time to re-visit it.

When I was in junior high (now middle-school?), I remember a classmate bringing in a newspaper his father has saved headlining the attack on Pearl Harbor. I thought having that newspaper was a great piece of history. Years later, I decided to start saving historic headlines, of course starting with the Kennedy assassination. Was cleaning out the garage and came across my box of newspapers and thought I would share some of them here to give this thead a renewed life.

I collect some celebrities and bands, my favorite being this one which unfortunately has CJ Ramone rather than DeeDee.

My father had an opportunity to meet Jimmie Haskell in the 60's. I asked him to take an album for him to sign. I was about 14 at the time, so don't judge my choice of albums. For those that don't know, Jimmie was an Emmy/Grammy award winning composer, arranger and conductor for major names like Elvis, Ricky Nelson and Billy Joel.

I was in a business transaction in the 70's with Jimmy Witherspoon. At the conclusion of the transaction, he brought me this album and signed it for me. It's a two-record set, hence the signature on one of the interior pages. Great music.

Hello All,

My name is Mark, I'm new here for a few reasons. I want to learn more from folks that know about vintage baseball. I am also here to learn some things about what I have and to share them as well. Please note none of these items are for sale. I'd like to introduce folks to something I call the "Steele Box".

I believe it's important for people who share information and people who appreciate things like this.

If I am in the wrong place please just say so.

What is the "Steele Box"? I can tell you it is a box similar to a old milk box / storage container, wood handles and made of metal. It's about 18 inches front to back, 22 inches side to side and about 18 to 20 inches deep.
I named it the "Steele Box" because it is basically a time capsule for the 1880's from a Mr. Charles Steele.
Mr Charles Steel was a...
Banker
Firefighter
Railroad Engineer of some sort
Local Baseball Player
Fan of the New York City and local theatre as well
In the box there were...
Copper printing plates, one of which has the signature of George Washington on. Mt Vernon is currently researching it.

The box also had CDV photo's of actresses (Lotta Crabtree) from the California Gold Rush days taken by a well know photographer from New York City named Jeremiah Gurney. He was ranked up there Matthew Brady who happened to be the person who made the cases for Jeremiah's photos early on. As you know Matthew Brady then went on to take the famous photos which he is well known for of President Abraham Lincoln.
Employee time tables from the Lackawanna Railroad, Chicago and others.
Love letters.
A letter that is from a man he knew that was in Cape Horn, South Africa. From what I gather he was trying to evade being captured by the police.
Letters to bring electricity to Newton.
Papers, ledgers, and so on all tied to arranging local Baseball games in the area including New York City in such places as Coney Island.
The baseball team from Newton was made up mostly from the Newton Steamer Co. No. 1, firefighters from that time.
Broadside of the first kidnapping in the United States for ransom, Charles ("Charley") Brewster Ross.
Opera house floor plans from New York City, one of which was torn down and is now where Madison Square Garden is today.
Bill Heads and Broadsides.
Bank Checks
Bank notes that were used as currency before the Federal Reserve been into existence.
....and more. There are over 2,000 pieces of paper (Ephemera) in this box.

As you can see it's overwhelming.

I hope to get the chance to post some of the baseball related papers here in hopes to learn more about them from folks that have knowledge of what I have
For the first post I will include a pic of the box and the riders that I have separated things into.


Thanks,

---Mark

I hope I am allowed to add a link here... This will hopefully give you a better idea of how all of this began.

As for the SF Giants didn't they start off as the Gothams? If so I have a few letters from that time period. I really don't know enough about any of the teams to say for sure if they were the Gothams though. I am learning as I go.

Here's one more link too...

I chase after Civil War images (tintypes & ambrotypes). Here's a few from my collection (note - if you have any you want to sell, contact me).
