The author is a Net54 member (lefty147, I believe) and there is a second edition as well. I hate to speak for Mike but he might still be selling the guides for about half of that amazon price.

For pins: Baseball Pinback Buttons by Paul Muchinsky. A beautiful, full color, 600 page hardback. It's out of print and I think nearly impossible to find.
Thanks!

I've been looking for that pinback book for a bit now and have not been able to find a copy. Good luck finding one.

My first add to my 1970s/80s Yankees collection. Picked up a 1978 Burger King Yankees poster off eBay for less than 5 bucks shipped. Just need to frame it when I can. Had this poster as a kid and have been wanting to pick it up again for a while and Im glad I was able to.

Just arranged to purchase this one. Thank goodness for the MEARS Museum as single trunk might be ok in the house, but this is #5 and not the largest of the bunch.

Sweet! Would love to see some interior pictures after you take ownership.

Default Trunk Drunk

Thanks. One of things I am fascinated with is how long these trunks were used/remained in the team’s inventory. I have one Yankees trunk that I know was used from the early 1930s well into the 1960s (evidenced by shipping label information). Others are a bit more interesting because they are personal team trunks and have a real connection to time and place. Of these I have three:

1937-1938 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Trainer Trunk. (Edward Froelich) One of the first “team trainers” to actually have studied the field of sports medicine if you will.

1934-1937 New York Yankees Team Physician Trunk for Medical Supplies & Equipment. (Dr. E.A. Spies) I can’t help but wonder if Dr. Spies gave Ruth his last Yankee’s physical, given DiMaggio his first Yankee’s physical, and also treated Gehrig in some manner at the close of his career.

Late 1940s/Early 1950s Cleveland Indians Traveling Secretary Trunk. (Spud Goldstein) This one is interesting as there is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that Goldstein may have initially transported Larry Doby’s uniforms to prevent them from being vandalized.

All of them harken back to a time of train travel and Pullman cars.
