Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
One of our newer forumers offered to share some photos, but didn't have enough posts to start a new one. Babe, this thread's for you -- post away. :)
For those of you who are interested in memorabilia shows (not just baseball) for the entire country this is the best website that I have seen.
Hey folks...This is a great website for autograph news. They've also been exposing the falacies of the third party authenticators claiming to be the "industry leading experts" such as JSA, GAI, PSA/DNA and others...
Very good info!!
Here is one of their recent news items...

First let me say that the nickname his teammates used for him must of boosted his confidence immensely when he took the mound. In 1937, he led the NL in pitching appearances for Philadelphia with 56, of which 26 were starts... his name is Hugh Mulcahy.
I could see it now when one of his teammates would ask the manager "Who's going for us today?"
His nickname was "Losing Pitcher" :scared:
Auctioning off a Derek Jeter Game Used Batting Glove with C.O.A
I was wondering how you guys store your autographed baseballs. Do you display them, or are they locked away?
I only have a few, but they mean a lot to me. About 12 years ago we gave my late father-in-law a Sandy Koufax signed ball. It has begun to yellow. From research on the net, it seems balls from that era are prone to doing that.
I want to protect the ones I have - a Yogi Berra inscribed ball, Don Mattingly "Hit Man", and a couple of Mariano's that he signed at Rangers Ballpark...
Looks like there's a nice bat of Mantle's up for auction...
I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country.
I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed.
Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out...
Wonderful move as proceeds will go to Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief.
The Yankees turned a triple play at home last night. It was the first triple play at home for the Yankees since 1968. The last one came against the Minnesota Twins. Bobby Cox, later famous as the manager of the Braves for about a zillion years, was the Yanks' third baseman. Mickey Mantle was playing first base, in his final year as a player.
A lot of great Yankees in this one; part of it was always on line but this person appears to have posted the whole show, and it's really fun:
My Brooklyn Dodger fan dude is speaking to me again, at least by way of posting Yankee pix. A long drought, but here are some of the better ones.
(check the famous Yankee and you'll recognize his name (hint: he once wore #6 for a year))
Lou Gehrig gently encouraging Babe Dahlgren in the dugout before Dahlgren replaced him as the Yankees' first baseman in Detroit. Gehrig removed himself from the lineup, snapping his consecutive-games-played streak at 2,130.
My mother passed away last March but left behind a great wealth of history on the early life of George Steinbrenner before he owned the Yankees, mjschriner.wordpress.com
Question: My mother says that when she attended a game at YS in the early 70s (she thinks 1971 or 1972), there was some sort of bank of phones where if you picked them up, you'd hear a recording of a Yankee legend talking, or someone else telling a story about a Yankee legend. My father says he doesn't remember it if it was there, so my mother is wondering:
A. If it indeed existed or whether she's misremembering something.
B. If it did exist, where in the Stadium it was, and any other...
I don't know how many saw this article - http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/memorabilia-imposter-busted-selling-fake-babe-ruth-glove-article-1.1224841
As soon as I saw the picture, my response was "this glove is obviously not a Babe Ruth glove - its for a right handed player".
Unless the picture of the glove in question is reversed, this seller must have been an absolute idiot - and the initial buyer not much brighter. Why would George Herman Ruth love a glove that he...
A friend of mine who is a wiz at carpentry is building a Yankee piece to sell and asked for my help since he's not a big baseball fan. He's going to be making a sort of collage that starts from 1903 up to the present. He's looking for me to give him up to the top 10 best players from each decade, or maybe decide my own eras. It needs to work out to ten total eras for it to work. He's not sure how many players will fit, so he's asked for me to give him the 10, but rank them so he can cut...
So I just got two balls signed by Mariano Rivera today- I have photos of both being signed. I plan on keeping one and selling the other one... is it worth getting the one I am selling authenticated, or is the photo enough?
What about balls I got signed at baseball games that I have no photos of, but may want to sell one day?
Tonight the Mets had 15 strikeouts, 3 hits, 1 walk, and won. It's the third time since 1918 a team has had that many strikeouts, that few hits, that few walks, and won. Teams since 1918 are now 3-23 when having that combination of strikeouts, hits, and walks, and two of the three times a team did it and won were by the Mets. The Mets did it in 1965 and the Angels did it in 1999. Both of those games ended 1-0. The Mets are the second team since 1918 to have that combination of strikeouts,...
Yankees Logo Poster signed by numerous Yankees Legends. Past and Present. The poster is 18x24 in size. It has small creases at the very top center due to Reggie Jackson leaning on it while looking at the other signatures. Barely noticeable unless you look up close.
The autographs were obtained at Official Steiner Sports signings in Long Island, NY and at a GT Sports Marketing Show in New...

Not sure if this is the right place for this but it does fall under the category of history.
Today marks the 33rd anniversary Thurman Munson's tragic death. I wrote this for the thirtieth anniversary a few years ago.
Remembering The Captain
Iím forty four years old. That means that thirty years ago today, I was a fourteen year old kid. And like a lot of fourteen year old kids, I loved baseball. But not just any baseball... Yankee baseball.
What a great time it was to be a Yankee...
Yesterday Boston used exactly four relievers and they got a hold, blown save, win, and save. Does anybody know of another game where a team used exactly four relievers and each one got a different outcome (hold, blown save, win, or save) without any of them getting a blown save and win?
