HL1. N172 Old Judge James McDonald, Sacramento PCL.. Incredibly rare as are all of the N172 PCL cards, the McDonald is the only one known. Obviously a very high grade at SGC 86 7.5, which is also, by a considerable margin, the best condition of all the known PCL N172 Old Judges.   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 in the REA 2010 auction. There was solid information that there was a plot to keep the price down on this card (details on request). 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.  ………POR

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. …….   POR

 

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 music. Tremendous colors and one of the era's most outstanding baseball display pieces. This is one of only two known examples. Excellent condition. This exact item sold for $9,280 in April 2004 by REA.  POR

   

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.    POR

 

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 ………….  POR

H10. 1925 Exhibit Company “Champions” Display. One of a kind hand made display item featured 20 of an extremely obscure 32 card exhibit set featuring mostly 1924 Olympic stars. The twenty cards featured Jack Dempsey, Johnny Weismuller, Ed Lewis, Gar Wood and others. The cards were slightly trimmed to fit the display. Evidently used for display inside an exhibit-card machine, the “collage” has each card slightly trimmed for its side-by-side, top-to-bottom arrangement, with an adhered strip along the bottom row of cards reading, “Put One Cent in Slot - Push Slide in then pull out slowly and receive card.” The 12-1/2 x 27” mounted configuration has a VG display appearance with peripheral foxing, corner wear and a handful of minor creases. It is attached to a modern backing within a 14-3/4 x 29-1/4” wooden frame. ... POR 


HL11. N-unc. 1886 Red Stocking Cigar card of Charles “Hoss” Radbourn. Originally obtain in a trade with collector Jim McLean in the early 1980’s.  The cards in Red & Black were 6 ½” x 3 ¾” advertising  cards featuring an artistic drawing of a  Red Stocking player. Three players are known, Charles Radbourn, John Morrill and C.G. Buffington) on the front and an 1886 Schedule of 126 games.  The three cards were the only ones known for many years until very similar cards from 1987 were discovered. The Radbourn card is obviously the most desirable not only  because of Radbourn’s notoriety but the excellent + condition of the card. The card is featured on the cover of  volume 1 of the Encyclopedia of Baseball Cards 19th Century baseball cards.  The last edition (2011) of the  Krause Standard Catalog prices the card at $100,000 in near mint condition and $10,000 in excellent. ………… POR

 

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. …………  POR

 

HL13. 1875 Prescott & White Hartford CDV SCG 30 GOOD 2  . 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. …………………… POR

 

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. ……………POR


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.   ………… POR

BO4. 1946 British Open ticket. Tickets from British Open in  the 1940’s are very difficult to find and even harder to identify. About ten years ago I was given the opportunity to buy a 1946 ticket from a seller well know to me and very reputable. He said he has purchased four 1946 tickets on ebay from a seller that attended the tournament and provided a color copy of the four tickets and the program. He resold me one of the tickets, since I had bought his British Open ticket collection. It is noted that, as late as 2004, there were no British Open tickets known before 1953 except for 1926, 1929, and 1938 and no tickets known in the entirety of the 1940’s. The winner of this ticket will receive the color copy of the 1946 program and the four tickets that were found.  It is worth noting that the 1946 Open was won by Sam Snead. The cost of the ticket was 4 shillings which help to date subsequent tickets assuming a greater cost is a later date. A similar 1954 ticket cost 10 shillings. The ticket is in excellent condition, with original string.. ……………..  $400.00
