Guys........I picked this 'flat top' up last weekend at a local antique show and finally got around to photographing it. It has a nice Spalding patch on the inside and is in great shape, except for the missing chin strap. This is the earliest football helmet I've ever owned, as it dates c. 1900-1910 according to my research...........Matt

Two AMAZING pickups to start the thread. Wow, Michael and Matt... you might scare everyone off from posting further here.

Tough acts to follow.... Congrats to both!

Picked up my dream jersey today, 1962 Mets flannel. Worn by #23 Joe Christopher then recycled to #56, probably in Spring Training in 1963 or 1964.

Well Thanks Mark! July being the month of the National I hope will be pretty sweet for pickups. At least that's what I hope for the attendees.
Matt...I have absolutely no clue about football equipment but that looks like a killer helmet. I assume the style is rather rare??

Super pickup Jim. Those 62 Mets are near impossible.

circa 1890 "Boxing Monkeys"advertising giveaway booklet
3 1/4" X 4 1/4"

Got this little circa 1890 "Boxing Monkeys"advertising giveaway booklet today...put out by McLaughlins Coffee. 3 1/4" X 4 1/4", 12 pages...posting a few pages below...has 4 color illustrations...plus 6 pages with smaller b&w pictures...accompanied by story telling rhyming verse...Pretty small format for me as I usually like bigger books...but the quality spoke to me...nice color chromo graphics and the condition is great...Never seen one of these...I like late 19th early 20th century children's sports books long as they don't set me back too much...below link to another one, "Freddy's Football" I did a feature on...

Matt, the flat top head harness is one of my favorites, great helmet! Can you post a pic of the Spalding tag?
