Matt,
Is the Ruth a gamer. Were you the one that picked up that Hank Greenberg bat.

No, They all have inch marks. I did not get the Greenberg. It was a nice bat tho!

I picked up this Ruth which is hand turned but the Winchester part throws me off.

I've seen some nice football items on these threads before so I thought I'd post this pair. One is a 1939 program of events at the meeting of American Football coaches. It's a very complete guide with what are basically the entire speeches of all the coaches that spoke. The other is a great pinback of Amos Alonzo Stagg with St. Louis Button Company back-paper. Part of this meeting was to honor his 50 years in football. I'm guessing this pin was produced for this multi-day convention/meeting.

My latest Cubs pennant pick-ups. I've not seen this piece before, and assume it is very rare.

This is a common design for the Yankees, but I rarely see it for the Cubbies.

Mike,

For what it's worth, the red pennant's design is really, really tough in an Indians version.

Nice pennants Mike. I knew you were going to be all over that '35 Cubs pennant. It has a really simple design but is quite striking. Its a beauty. Congrats

Picked this up at a card show in Overland Park, KS, this weekend. This is the "Holy Grail" of Final Four Programs, as it featured North Carolina winning in triple overtime two straight nights, the last against Wilt Chamberlain and the Kansas Jayhawks in 1957. I thought this was an appropriate post for tonight. Photobucket

Yesterday, I picked up these two items. One is apparently an end of day Score Card giveaway from Chicago Area dated September 26, 1927 and the other a Washington Senators visor from 1937. Nothing too great but looks good on the shelf.

Excellent frame presentation Brock. Can I ask what that frame job cost? I just want to see if I'm being fleeced where I go...ha ha.

Mike,
It ran me about $315. I made the mistake of having my mother take it to the framer for me. I told her to go with a simple black frame, double mats, and the good glass. She got a little carried away and ran the bill up. She just had to have the little accent piece around the photo that matches the border of the frame. Its pretty big though, measures 33.5" x 19"

brock- great piece...mom did well, that "little accent piece around the photo" really takes it up a level...great job!

question- i get a lot of pieces framed, and always get the glass, which seems to be the middle quality out of 3 options; regular, UV, and then super duper expensive ($100+ just for the glass)...which one do you get? which one should we be getting?


thanks!
MS

Thanks for the compliments MS. For this picture I (I actually means mom) went with the UV protectant anti-reflective glass, which I guess is the "super duper expensive" variety. Its the best at keeping light from the photo and doesn't have that hazy sort of look you get with non-glare. Truth be told I probably would of went with something a little cheaper but mom wasn't thinking economically shopping with my money. When I've taken stuff to the same framer he advised me to go with the middle priced UV protectant glass. I think it would suffice in most cases.

I always use the regular UV. Honestly tho, I doubt any of us put our items in direct sunlight where they are going to fade significantly in our life time. My family deals in antiques and I have seen hundreds of framed pieces that are 150+ years old that have not faded with time using regular glass.

I'm too cheap to have my stuff professionally framed. I find frames at garage sales and auctions for really cheap and then just have custom mattes made. All my stuff stays out of direct sunlight and I don't use the fluorescent bulbs in any room I have memorabilia in.

I don't begrudge anyone who has it done professionally, I just can't justify the expense to do it that way.

I do all my own framing.... usually in uniform black frames. It lets each piece speak for itself. I would rather put the extra money into more memorabilia, rather than into the framing, but that's just my thing.

Plus, I am so OCD with some of this stuff, that I can't stand the thought of leaving it at the frame shop. It would be like leaving one of my kids with a complete stranger (ok, maybe just a notch below that...)

To Matt and Dan's point, I think regular UV glass is fine... although they do make a really cool/expensive museum glass with no glare at all (completely invisible). Much more important is that we keep this stuff away from direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting. It will easily outlive all of us that way.

Just got me to thinking about the not-so-distant future...the incandescent bulb will disappear all to soon. I wonder the best solution with CFLs being the only immediate option. I don't think the LEDs are going to be viable anytime really soon.

I've always read about how bad taditional fluorescent lighting is, are CFL's equally as bad? Sorry if my ignorance is obvious.

Tim, I don't know the answer for that, but I sure don't have the guts to try it out.

Just got this little treasure in the mail

I found this little treasure today at an antique mall. The pitcher is 5" and the overall height is 8.5". Dated 1930.
