Introduction


December 30, 2014

Hi Everyone

Hope everyone had a good holiday season and a Happy New Year to all.

You will notice that the "Old Judge" main page is gone and has been replaced by the "Sale Page". It is no longer necessary to sign in, unless you want to make changes to your personal information. You can also do that by sending me an email.

I have finished a major update to the sales list that had been online in 2013 and the first half of 2014. The list approaches 2,000 items including many new ones. Basically the list will contain almost everything I have left in my baseball and golf collections. That is followed with various pieces of old hobby memorabilia, then baseball items, followed by some autographs, rare and other baseball postcards, baseball cards and exhibits, photos, books and publications, miscellaneous baseball, then a large assortment of golf (almost all vintage) and finally, other sports and non sports.

Previous auctions can still be seen by hitting the link on the left. There is a detailed listing of categories (links) for the "Sale Page" also on the left. A photo is available for any item listed on request.  If ordering or requesting a scan PLEASE indicate the complete item # with any alphabetic prefix. 

I will add to the list over the course of the year. While photos aren't included on the web page, they are available for all items on request. Please use the item number as well as the description if requesting a scan.

There are some things that should be noted. All items have an item number. If the number is completely numeric it is a carryover from last years list and is still available at a 10% discount. The remaining items have alphabetical characters and these are new items, many are  from my collection and, for the time being, are  available at the listed price. You will notice the first 15 items in the "Highlights" section are the better items left from my baseball collection and are available at the prices listed only. When ordering please use the item number as well as the Item description.

It is my hope that everything will be gone in 2-3 years and as time goes on, I will be receptive to giving discounts for bulk purchases for most items.

If there are any questions, please email (you can use the email facility on the web page but llipset@aol.com is preferred) or call 480-488-9889.

As usual I will be gone for part of the summer and the list will be taken down at that point. I will give notice of that.

Thanks for reading

Lew





Highlights


Photos of any item are available on request


HL1. N172 Old Judge James McDonald, Sacramento PCL.. Incredibly rare as are all of the N172 PCL cards, the McDonald is the only one know. Obviously a very high grade at SGC 86 7.5.  The highest of any N172 Old Judge PCL card by a considerable amount. Two previous sales of graded PCL cards were in 2004 when an SGC 1 of Dooley, Oakland suspiciously went for only $52,240 in a Mastronet sale. In REA’s 2010 auction there was a PCL of Doyle (Lot #1), ungraded with writing on the rear and other flaws, obviously no better than a “1” and probably would be an “A”. This went for $125,250. There was information that there was a plot to keep the price down on this card. If one applies the standard multiples on the progression from a PSA 1 to a PSA 7 the multiple would average well over 20X, the older the cards are, the higher the multiple. I did this test with 2 N172’s (a common and a HOF), and similarly with 2 T206’s, 2 R319 Goudeys and 2 1952 Topps cards. My asking price for the McDonald is only 6 times what an ungraded example went for in REA’s 2010 auction (despite being “manipulated”) and 11 times more than the SGC 1 Mastronet auctioned in 2004. This doesn’t take into account the card is a 7.5 not a 7 which adds substantial value. ……………$600,000.00 

 

HL2. “The Galaxy of the National League” by the famed Hasting Photographic Studio in Boston features photos of all eight teams of the National League on a composite laid out on the back drop of a ball field. The teams are Chicago (with Cap Anson), Detroit (Sam Thompson, Dan Brouthers, Deacon White), Philadelphia (Harry Wright), New York (John Ward, Tim Keefe, Buck Ewing, Roger Connor, James O’Rourke), Philadelphia (Harry Wright) , Pittsburgh (Pud Galvin), Washington and Indianapolis. One of the most historical and rare prints in 19th century baseball, there are about a half of dozen known prints including one in the Cooperstown Hall of Fame. The offered print has had some reparation in the upper right corner and still has some minor staining. The area with the teams is remarkably clear and players can be easily identified. …….   $22,500.00

 

HL3. 1867 The Baseball Quadrille (Sheet Music). This sheet music, entitled "The Base Ball Quadrille" and published in 1867 was, as noted along the top and bottom, "Respectfully dedicated to the Tri Mountain Base Ball Club of Boston, Champions of New England." Written by Henry Von Gudera. Published by Henry Tolman & Co., 291 Washington St. (Boston). This is one of the rarest and most extraordinary of all nineteenth-century sheet musics. It is one of only several baseball sheet musics from the nineteenth-century which are printed in color, and the only one featuring a single player, as opposed to a game-in-progress scene. The Tri-Mountains were the Champions of New England and one of the most prominent teams in the country from the 1850s though the late 1860s. In fact, the adoption, by the New England-based Tri-Mountains' of the "New York style" rules over the "Massachusetts style rules" for their games in 1859 is cited by scholars as the critical turning point of the universal acceptance of the "New York style" rules throughout the country. Though the player featured on the cover is not identified, we believe that the illustration represents a specific Tri-Mountain player. Also of special note is the Championship Trophy Bat and Trophy Ball pictured in the foreground, which are actual trophies which were awarded to the Tri-Mountains as Champions of New England. The sheet music is complete with interior pages. There is evidence along the spine of its removal from a book of sheet musics, which explains how this rare sheet music has survived in such extraordinary condition. Tremendous colors and one of the era's most outstanding baseball display pieces. This is one of only several known examples. Excellent condition. This exact item sold for $9,280 in April 2004 by REA and the description is as written there.……… $15,000.00.

HL4. 1877 Lowell Baseball Club - A book of Cabinet photographs.  An astounding book, which I believe has never been offered for public sale before and only one other copy is alleged to exist. The volume shows pages, which must be described as cabinet photos with cabinet card size and thickness. There are 11 photos in all, of 1877 Lowell Club players including Samuel Wright (brother of Harry and George), Alonzo Knight, Charles Foley, Dennis Sullivan, Samuel Crane, A.W. Whitney, John Piggott, William Hawes, Frank Whitney, Revilo Cook and Eugene Stoughton. Each page is 5 3/4" x 7 7/8" with the actual photos measuring 4" x 5 5/8", positioned on a page with a gold border surrounding the picture and a thin black line border around that. Each player has his name and position pre-printed on the page below the gold leaf frame line. The spine needs some minor repair, but otherwise the book is in excellent condition. Recently a CDV (listed below) has appeared showing the exact same 11 portraits in the book. A remarkable volume which will become the cornerstone of any advanced baseball book or photo collection. …………….  $15,000.00

 

HL5. 1877 Lowell baseball Club Carte de Visite featuring the very important 19th century team from Lowell, Massachusetts. Eleven players are pictured. This team of destiny was the Champions of the New England Association. Included on the roster were Sam Wright (lesser known brother of Harry and George), Crane, Sullivan, Cook, Knight, Foley, Arthur and Frank Whitney, and Hawes. Photo itself is EX-MT while mount is VG-EX with "The Invincible" written at the bottom in ink. An outstanding piece to add to any advanced historical baseball collection. Was auctioned for $6,532.89, August 28, 2006 in a Lelands auction This is the only copy of this CDV I’ve ever seen. Photos match exactly with Lowell players in the book directly above  in item HL4.  $12,000.00

 

 

HL6. 1901 Seymour Church Calendar. Extremely rare multicolor calendar display, printed on quality cardboard stock, issued by Seymour Church, the publisher in 1902 of Base Ball 1845-1871. The illustration on the calendar (which covers July through December 1901),  features a highly detailed game-in-progress scene.  Additional images surround the action scene: George Van Haltren, pictured in full uniform holding a bat; William A. Langley (former cf for the Chicago BBC) dressed in formal attire; and portraits of Henry Chadwick ("The Father of Baseball"), umpire James A. McDonald, and A.G. Spalding. Below the image area reads, "Base Ball Calendar - Part First - Issued By Seymour R. Church- San Francisco, California." The actual calendar portion of the display is comparatively small.This was the first of two calendars to be issued in 1901. A second calendar, covering January to June 1902, has never been seen. Minor surface creases and a few tears do not significantly detract from the extraordinary display value of this rare and unusual calendar display. Imperfections along the margins have almost entirely been matted out. The image area (13.25 x 10 inches) is in Excellent condition, with some tearing in the margin area visible below. There are apparently two known. This exact Calendar sold in the REA auction in 2005 for $3,190 ………….  $7,500.00

 

HL7. BASEBALL by Seymour Church book with rare companion pieces.  One of the rarest and most popular books in baseball. Published by Church in 1902. A Classic  with 5 color plates as well as many other illustrations. The oversized book (11 x 14) is in excellent condition and contains the original onion skin page separators..The lot is accompanied by two separate and extremely rare color plates (8 ½” x 11 ½”) of Cal McVey and Rube Waddell (who are also represented by color plates of the same images in the book) and the equally rare companion booklet BASEBALL SCHEDULE and memorandum Book for 1902. I’ve never seen other offerings of the plates and the Schedule book is even rarer than the book. Four pieces virtually never offered. All in ex+-mt condition.… $6,000.00

HL8. Complete unfolded R342 Goudey Flip Movie Box. Originally from the Woody Gelman collection and purchased from his son Richard Gelman. Beautiful box in red, white, blue and yellow, show a hand opening flip movie with silhouettes from various sports below. Measure 19 1/2” x 14” at its widest points. Only one known and in the best possible condition. Three negligible wrinkles in the outside flaps keep this from being mint. Includes original matte and frame but should be reframed to show front and back of folded box. One of a kind. $5,000.00

HL9 Complete folded R323 Heads Up Box. Originally from the Woody Gelman collection and purchased from his son Richard Gelman. Matted and framed in a bright yellow frame.

HL10. 168. 1925 Champions Exhibit Advertising Display. The 27” x 12 1/2’ beautiful wood framed advertising display is the only one I’ve ever seen and is a must for the Exhibit card collector. The 1925 Champions exhibit set was the first issued featuring athletes other than baseball players. Called the “World’s Champions”, the set featured Babe Ruth but mostly consisted of 1924 Olympic athletes from around the world. There are twenty of the 32 cards displayed, each of which has been slightly trimmed to fit the exhibit. Included are Dempsey (lower left), a hockey player, and among the better known names, Johnny Weismuller, Ed “Stranger” Lewis, Gar Wood, Charles Paddock and Charles Jewtraw. A 1 3/4” strip has been pasted across the bottom four cards indicating “1c “ on each side with instructions in the middle. The display is professionally framed to 29” x 14 1/2”.  …. $2,000.00

  

HL12. 1868 Lowells of Boston CDV SGC Graded 20 FAIR 1.5.  Among the earliest baseball CDV’s. Portrays in a photo with outstanding contrast the Lowell team of 1868 which featured the historic Mort Rogers (2nd from right, standing). In a few years, Rogers would create a famous group of scorecards with the picture of a Boston player on the cover. The CDV illustrates the Lowell nine which includes Lovett, Jewell, Newton, Rogers and Alline standing and Hawes, Joplin, Sumner and Bradbury seated.  The rear of the card indicates “Webster & Popkins, 297 Main St., Hartford , Conn.”” as the photographers and there is a fascinating pencil written note by hobby great Buck Barker “Forgot about this, return if not interested, Buck”. An indication of what the hobby was long ago. The CDV was illustrated in Mark Rucker’s book “Baseball Cartes” on page 34 and a Xerox of that page is included. …………  $25,000.00

HL13. 1875 Prescott & White Hartford CDV. Ten members of the 1875 Hartford team are posed in the uniform of the famous Hartford team in baseball’s National Association. Included in this group in the middle of the top row is their ace pitcher, Candy Cummings, who is credited with inventing the curveball. Cummings won 35 games for Hartford in 1875, the last year of the National Association before the start of the National League. Other notables on the team include pitcher Tommy Bond, whose first 7 years in baseball (1874-1880) could match anyone. He won 221 games. Also Bob Ferguson who played for 14 years and was known as a defensive outfielder but acqired greater fame for his nickname “Death to Flying Things” in tribute to his defense. The CDV measures 4 ¼” x 2 ½”, has a 2” diagonal crease in the upper left portion, alight stain slightly left of stain. The photographer’s name “Prescott & White Hartford” in engraved on the back of the card in very small gold letters. The CDV was illustrated in Mark Rucker’s book “Baseball Cartes” on page 57 and a Xerox of that page is included. A similar cards was also graded SCG 30 GOOD 2 in the 2010 REA auction and brought $17,625. …………………… $17,500.00

 

HL14. H812 New York Baseball Club Tom Deasley SGC 20 FAIR 1.5. The rarest 19th Century Type card known and the best example of an H812 known. Actually a trade card where Merchants could put their advertising on the bottom of the card. The first advertising was for “Welton Cigars” and in the infancy of the hobby collectors referred to the cards as Welton Cigars and the card of Deasley was the only card known. Thomas “Pat” Deasley was a catcher in the NL mostly from 1881-1888 and was with the Giants in 1885-7 and achieved some notoriety in the hobby by being the subject of 14 N172 Old Judge cards. Over time another card of Mickey Welch was found with “W.H. Sanders advertising” and the more appropriate designation  of “New York Baseball Club” cards was adopted. In the 1980’s a scrapbook was found on Long Island which had a group of the New York cards. All had the advertising section of the bottom trimmed off. To the best of my knowledge the cards of Deasley and Welch are the only full cards known. Both have been graded 1.5 by SGC, however the Welch has a corner off and biting at the top of the card and believed to be trimmed. The Deasley card measure 4 3/8” x 2 5/8”, is full and in my opinion and was unfairly graded. The back has the remnants of two stamp hinges at the top and bottom of the card and one could imagine they could be easily washed off and resubmitted with the card receiving at least a 3 or 4. Regardless, the H812 Deasley is one of a kind and among the hobbies rarest and most prestigious cards.A Welton Cigar card of Ewing, graded “A” and with a corner missing went for $12,758 in 2013 Goodwin auction. …………….   $20,000.00

 

HL15. 1880 Worcester Ruby Legs Postcards. Three historic and almost assuredly, one of a kind, postcards. The earliest known baseball postcards. drawn by a famous political cartoonist named F.E. Pollack during the 1880 season with apparently one card for many games of the Worcester team's first season in the National League. While it seems there should be others, the three cards offered are the only cards known to exist. Drawings of others are illustrated in an extremely rare book (I've never seen anything other than a xerox) called "Ups and Downs of the Worcester Baseball Club League Season 1880". The postcards measure 5 1/8" x 3", were all postally used, with a Worcester postmark (probably in 1880) and were all sent to a Miss E.M. Bacon in Albany New York.. The first game represented on the postcards was from May 27th. Worcester lost to Providence 4-1 and the card notes "... Tho' 4 games out of six, aint so bad after all", referring to the fact that Worcester, despite the loss, had won 4 of the 6 games with Providence to that point in the season. The second post card represents two games against Buffalo on June 4th and 5th. The card depicts a Buffalo and makes no comments. The final postcard was from June 10th and represents a 5-0 shutout win for Worcester against Cleveland. It is interesting to note the next game (on June 12th) was James Lee Richmond pitching the first perfect game in major league history for Worcester against Cleveland. The cards are in excellent condition. Included is a Xerox copy of the "Ups and Downs..." book (not certain it's complete) and a copy of the 1880 Worcester schedule with results and their roster. In addition to Richmond, the Worcester club had several prominent players highlighted by rookie Harry Stovey, Charlie Bennet, Al Buschong, Bill McGunnigle, Art Irwin and others. Originally in the collection of pioneer collector Bill Knapp from Schenectady New York in the early 1980's.   …………$10,000.00
