Default 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.

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

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.

Thought these were pretty cool. Picked them up today. The ones on the ends are cast iron banks and the Ruth in the middle is a door stop.

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.

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.

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.
