Agree.... Very attractive Game.

But I have never understood how the ball would make its way down to the bottom portion. It seems like the wood "wall" would create a barrier that would stop the ball from reaching its final destination towards the bottom.

Am I seeing it wrong?

Default Cardinals 1954 Scorecard

Ever since I saw one, I thought these scorecards were the most attractive ever made. I snagged this one. It's actually signed lightly in ballpoint by Musial on the glove (upside down) and is also from a game against the Braves where rookie Hank Aaron hit his final homerun of the season. (#13)

Thanks guys! Mark, great question. Its not a wall but rather painted wooden panels placed over the track. So the ball diappears behind the panel briefly, then comes back out going the opposite direction on the next lower level. Hopefully you can see from this photo.

That is so cool, Kris...

Thanks for posting the additional pic, and congrats on acquiring that awesome game. I imagine it must be in the top 5% (or better) of those that managed to survive. It's a stunner!

This is a neat little game with the original string and ball. I figured that there cannot be too many of these out there.

Sweet, sweet acquisition, Bob. You're right, it's the first example we've seen in over ten years,
just the third or fourth in more than twice that long.

The last one I saw was in Mastro's personal collection (subsequently auctioned off by Legendary). I suppose this could easily be the same one, given the scarcity. Such a beautiful piece with amazing graphics. And the condition is insane... a minor miracle that the Ball and String are still in tact!

The only other example I've seen was beat to hell, from a Clean Sweep Auction (I believe). Great pickup!

Finally picked up something baseball-related (last one was the painting in my avatar, I think) This is a large 1800's albumen photo of a baseball game at Wildwood Park, St. Paul, Minnesota. It has a linen backing rather than board.

Since I have already grabbed a posting spot, below it are a couple of 1967 Seattle concert posters - the raised paint on board type, that I found yesterday in an antique store. The first one is black light and was done by John Moehring who was well-known for that sort of thing. They were sort of important (1st Seattle Trips Festival), so these are images from the internet, not of my actual posters. They are both featured in a book about Seattle Concert posters from 1966-68 - knowing nothing about posters, I frantically researched them at the antique store, prior to purchasing....such moments would probably be a good thread topic. I can remember involving Leon in a tobacco tin call, Shelley regarding a rookie-era Ted Williams autograph, and another buddy got a call about an ambrotype of a ship captain. All moments of massive persperation.

Scott,

I guess you weren't 'Pushin too hard' to get those posters authenticated!!!

That's good. I figured it was part of one of the band's lyrics, but had to google it. I am embarrassed to admit that I haven't heard of any of the bands.

The Seeds were a pretty big psychedelic band though "Pushin' too hard" was their only hit. Their album is quite collectible and has been reissued in the 180 gram vinyl. The rest of the bands appear to be much smaller local bands, only one other name seemed even mildly familiar.

No google needed for me to pick up what Michael was putting down.

Hi Randall
I definitely agree with you ...This Cardinals scorecard in 1954 is one of the nicest in baseball. I also like the 1962 Cubs with all the NL hats as a runner up..
Hope you are doing well..

Default Photo Pick-ups





I'm not big photo guy but occasionally I come across ones that hit the gotta have it level...Remarkably I picked up the two above the same weekend couple weeks ago...I found the Potato Bug II photo at the Grass Valley Old West antiques show...then I found the Indian Motorcycle Glendale Run photo in a mall in Roseville CA...

I'm usually not interested in photos that aren't "from the period"...i..e. produced/processed the same era it was taken...but I liked the motorcycle pano so much I got it anyway. The inscription below the riders says "Indian Motorcycle Run, Glendale CA June 14th 1931..."When I first saw it I was taken back...but it didn't look period and I dismissed it and walked away...walking thru the store it kept gnawing at me and I went back for another look...I'm always on the lookout for exceptional vintage motorcycle photos and I had to admit it would have to be one of the greatest motorcycle photos I'd ever seen...and I'm a big So. Cal fan...Southern California is a place you can ride your bike all year long...

I started examining it closer and got the feeling it wasn't from the period...but wasn't a recent knock off either...I could see some slight wrinkling/creases and soiling in the white border....which made me feel a little better that it wasn't a $39.95 eBay pop out...

I got the feeling it was an older repop...maybe from the 70's or 80's...I did a google image search for it and couldn't find one...or on eBay...So I started seriously considering it....I knew who the dealer was but not very well...However, I have a good friend with a booth in the mall who sort of knows everybody and everything going on...who I figured would likely know the score on it...So I gave him a call...sure enough he knew the story...the dealer that was selling it bought it from a collector in the area...and that it had been in his bathroom...and it was the only thing he could buy from the guy...is what he said...

That intel...along with the slight soiling and creasing put me at ease enough to pull the trigger...I'm not crazy about the white border above and below...but I guess I'll leave it be for now...

The Potato Bug II is a whole-nother story....Someone wrote in what looks like recent ink on the back of the frame "Putter King II"...I sort of know the editor of WoodyBoater.com...which is a community just like Net54baseball.com except it's all about wooden boats and that world...all they discuss is wooden boats and all the aspects....great site...So I send photos to Matt the editor and he immediately posted a feature on my photo to see if anyone could supply any info about the boat...

I should stop right here and explain...any photos of speed boats from about pre 1930 are very rare...and the older the rarer....way more rare than baseball, football, and boxing for instance...and I'm always on the lookout for them...So there I was browsing around a cowboy antique show and blam...The dealer who I know a little and have seen around the antique shows the last 30 years, sells very good and interesting antique photos...His prices are typically not too expensive and not too cheap either...However...I think he had $95.00 on my photo...and I got it for $85.00...which in relation to how tough speedboat photos are...you get the picture...

http://www.woodyboater.com/blog/2018...know-j-morgan/
So anyway...someone on WoodyBoater.com was able to I.D. the boat as Potato Bug II...see link above...

Do you know the origin of the lot? The listing did not mention anything, but is there a story behind it? (I think I may have come across a few pictures in other collections that seem like they might have also been part of the collection at one point in time)
