May Pickups
 
We can't go another month without an official pickup thread! Here is an interesting framed 1909 print/poem that I picked up. It has a small version of a more common Kline print combined with a "baseball-ized" version of a popular poem from the time. Anyone else come across this before?

1875 silver trophy ball from Franklin Co NY. Donated by Father Ryan to the Athletic BBC of Brush's Mills NY on August 6, 1875 to commemorate the O'Connell centenary. O'Connell was a well known champion of Irish Catholics, I believe.
The scan is poor, but the ball is nice.

Awesome trophy ball Gary!

Yeah, the scan makes it look like a trailer ball hitch. :p

I got this awesome bat from the mailman yesterday.

I don't often acquire the really old stuff; this might be one of my all-time favorite pickups. I am very excited to put this in the baseball room.

19th Century Cabinet Card.....
 
1 Attachment(s)
I picked this cabinet card up last week. The mask is pre-weld and it looks like there's a pair of gloves on the ground, one which is 'fingerless'. I'm guessing 1890-ish? Let me know if you think different. Thanks.......Matt

khkco4bls 05-07-2018 08:40 PM

The one glove is a fingertip and the other is a fingerless glove I would say the image is 1880s to 1890

Great old Kren bat. Nice pickup !

Schaffer Beer advertisement. This is a very condition sensitive piece and one of the nicest I have ever seen. None of the heads are missing or bent. Even the back is intact.

I always love seeing those. Such a cool item.

GaryPassamonte 05-11-2018 02:04 PM

Agreed. Great condition, Bob.

Very nice, Mike. It's gotta be great to find something new that fits your one year focus.

BTW - I have a snipe set for something I've sought for 25 years. :cool:

I managed to get the early NY Giants ticket lot in the recent REA auction, this era NYG being my main focus it was great to add 5 tix at once...hard enough doing it one at a time. But the gem of the lot, not really remarked upon it the lot description, is this stub from July 19, 1902...NY vs the Phillies at the Polo Grounds. This year/month was a watershed moment for baseball culminating in John McGraw leaving Baltimore in the AL and signing to be manager/player with the NL Giants. This game, July 19th, was his first as manager of the Giants. Coming with him from Baltimore were Joe McGinnity, Roger Bresnahan, Dan McGann, and Jack Cronin. On the 19th McGraw played shortstop, McGinnity pitched, Bresnahan caught, and McGann was at 1b...all playing their first games as Giants. If you had asked me what early NYG ticket I'd most like to have, this would have been it but I'd never have believed it even a remote possibility. But here it is. Remarkable that it's a printed-date ticket as well.

Wow! So tough to find a dated ticket from that era let alone one with significance!

Such a beauty ticket. I had to check the box score to see if Luther "Dummy" Taylor pitched that game but didn't see any game played on July 19, 1902.

https://www.baseball-reference.com/t...e-scores.shtml

Game got postponed?

How much did it cost you? I would love to obtain Taylor's game played tickets.

Best,
Danny

rholmes 05-15-2018 06:36 PM

Hey Danny,

The game was played on the 19th as scheduled. Joe McGinnity lost to the Phillies 3-4 in his first start in a Giants uniform.

Good luck (sincerely!) finding a ticket from a Taylor pitched game. Pre-1910 regular season tickets are tough enough, and finding one dated and 100% attributable to a specific game/pitcher/event is generally impossible. But this 1902 stub proves the odd impossible thing does turn up, so...

Here's a boxscore from that game. Bottom right of the page. I love the comments, " The new manager and the Baltimore recruits"!

rholmes 05-15-2018 08:57 PM

Thanks Scott!...

...and thanks for the SL link, Paul. Most news accounts had the crowd at the Polo Grounds at numbers above 10,000. The game was a huge deal in NY. 1902 was a pretty interesting year in baseball, with the events leading up to July 19th reshaping and defining the leagues going forward, setting the stage for an AL team in New York, etc.

Awesome, Michael. What a special piece. Congrats.

btcarfagno 05-18-2018 03:36 PM

Already had one of each of these, which I pretty much had to pay through the nose for. These were much more reasonable.

Anyone know if any other AAGPBL teams had buttons such as these? I am thinking these harken to the two years that the Colleens and Sallies toured together as development teams for the league...either that or it is just a coincidence that it happens to be these two teams that the buttons exist for.
