Default 1st May Pickups Thread

With the "wealth" of auctions that just ended (or are ending soon) I thought I would start a May Pickups thread. Should generate lots of great posts...

I'll start with an item I didn't expect to get. Placed a very early bid on Day 1, and thankfully it held up. Two extremely rare and top-tier Pennants hit the auction blocks this week. The best is in REA (1922 Giants) and this one was a close 2nd, in Mears. With the REA Pennant now at $2,500 (and climbing) I'm out of the picture. So I am thrilled to have nailed this one down.

Seems like premium pennants are drying up. REA has just the one, and Legendary and Heritage had none this time around... I cannot ever recall so few pennants being offered via these catalogues. Also, a warning for Mike H... Don't look!

Thanks to Jodi for this amazing Tommy Bridges letter. It's dated Nov. 29 1929 so it was written just before his first season with the Tigers. It was sent to and came from the collection of Billy Doyle, a Tigers' scout, and it is worth mentioning that Bridges inquired to know if the new management remember the $500 bonus the old management promised if he advanced to the club that season. Today's players are so pampered. Thanks again Jodi!

Clint,

Warren and I were roommates on the road for part of the season. Great guy. Very quiet but with a sly sense of humor. Great power the other way. He rarely pulled the ball in the air but hit the crap out of it to left and left-center. I was really happy for him when he made the big leagues. I think I remember reading, when he was with the Rangers, that he had a young daughter at the time who was breaking into TV and some work in movies.

(Btw, my wife wore No. 9 to her Halloween party at work last year. Everyone thought it was cool that she had gone out and had a jersey made with her name on the back, but they wanted to know why she had "Wichita" sewn on the front.)
