Odd Items In Your Baseball Collection

Post by bowlingshoeguy on Mon Oct 26, 2009 12:55 am

I have these pencil toppers, what other odd baseball collectibles do you have in your collection:



The yellow one looks goofy but the green seems to be of the era. Does anyone know anything about them?

Here's an odd item from my collection. It's a colorful old map issued by Gunther's Beer in 1935, featuring sports records of Cobb, Ruth, Mack, Bobby Jones, etc. I don't have it infront of me, but I recall it measuring approximately 25" x 35. Really kind of a neat piece with some great baseball content - I've been meaning to have it framed but still haven't gotten around to it.

Lee -

Sorry but I don't think any of the pencil toppers out there are period. I have a similar Paige that I did some research on and found out was a fantasy piece.

Thanks Dave, I have always thought the yellow one seemed of a newer period, but the green one I have hope that it might turn out to be older. Any idea about when they were produced? Pencil toppers have not been around for a long time. I don't remember them growing up in the 70's.

Off the top of my head I can't remember when they were produced, but 70s and 80s is the most likely. I think they were fantasy pieces sold at flea markets etc.

There are authentic Cleveland Brown pencil clips the were sold at the ballpark from 1948 to 1952. Not sure when the others were made or how to tell the authentic Browns clips from newer pieces.

Here's a '33 Buffalo Bison puzzle - don't see too many of these:

How about a Dockman candy box with prize and authentic c.1910 piece of candy?

If the candy is that thing in the bottom right, it looks like a shrunken mitt. Cool items, can't say I ever say one before.
