Vintage Baseball Photos, a Couple of Pins, a Coin and a Longest-Game Christmas Card.

Lot 248. Vintage Baseball Photos, a Couple of Pins, a Coin and a Longest-Game Christmas Card. From the Pawtucket Red Sox in 1981, the 7” x 9” card presents a 3” x 6.5” color photo of the team that won pro baseball’s longest game – 33 innings, 8 hours and 25 minutes – including 32 innings on April 18-19, 1981, and the final inning on June 23. Pawtucket defeated Rochester, 3-1. With Santa Claus sleeping on the front, the card is nm. The collection also includes: A 1968 four-page program for the dedication of Stan Musial’s statue at Busch Memorial Stadium, vg+ with a nice cover photo of Musial. A 1969 spring training program for a Pittsburgh-St. Louis game. Roberto Clemente is listed in the lineup. Vg with the date and location added to the cover. And a 1989 50th anniversary brochure for the Baseball Hall of Fame. Vintage photos of Leo Durocher and Dominic “Mike” Ryba are also part of the collection. The Durocher photo, 3 ½” x 5”, likely is an original wire or newspaper photo. It is adhered to a heavy paper backing. Durocher played for the Cardinals 1933-37, and this photo is from that period. Vg. There are two photos of Ryba, a 6 ¼” x 8 ¾” sepia print from the mid-1930s with Ryba in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform and 3 ¼” x 4 ¼ photo that pictures him with the Red Sox (1941-46). Ryba pitched for the Cardinals 1935-38. Both photos have a piece of tape at the top and bottom, and the larger photo also has a section of tape on the right side. Without the tape, the larger photo would be ex, and the smaller photos, ex-m. Ryba holds the distinction of earning MVP honors in four different minor leagues, including the International League and the American Association. Four newspaper articles accompany his photos. Other Photos: A panel of two postcards by Bob Bartosz, each card 4” x 5.5”, one with a b&w offset print photo of Hank Aaron signing autographs (vg), and the other, Aaron with Willie Mays (ex-m); a Bartosz postcard with a 25th anniversary photo of the 1950 Phillies; and five 5.5” x 8.75” Bartosz offset photos of the 1975 Phillies team, ex. Ted Williams is represented by a 1 3/16” b&w pin showing him batting, nm, stains on the back.
