Don Larsen's
Don Larsen's "The Perfect Game" souvenir plate
A perfect game is defined by Major League Baseball as a game in which a pitcher pitches a victory that lasts a minimum of nine innings and in which no opposing player reaches base. Thus, the pitcher cannot allow any hits, walks, hit batsmen, or any opposing player to reach base safely for any other reason in short, "27 up, 27 down". The feat has been achieved only 17 times in major league history.

Don Larsen's career won-loss record was 8191, as a journeyman pitcher for seven different franchises from 19531967. He had only two 10-win seasons, in 1956 and 1957. In 1954, Larsen went 321 with the Baltimore Orioles, which by itself accounts for his career losing record.

Larsen was part of an enormous two-part, 17-player trade following the 1954 season. As a member of the New York Yankees from 1955-1959, Larsen was used by manager Casey Stengel as a backup starter and occasional reliever. He went 45-24 during his five seasons in New York, making 90 starts in 128 appearances. His 1956 season was the best of Larsen's career; adopting a no-windup delivery late in the season, he posted an 11-5 record, with a career best 107 strikeouts and a 3.26 ERA.

Larsen's most notable accomplishment was pitching the only perfect game in the history of the World Series, and one of only 17 perfect games ever played. He was pitching for the New York Yankees in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers, on October 8, 1956. His perfect game remains the only no-hitter of any type ever pitched in postseason play. As he walked off the mound at the end of the game, Yankee catcher Yogi Berra leaped into his arms, creating an indelible, iconic image in American sports.

Don Larsen's unparalleled game earned him the award for World Series MVP. Alluding to Larsen's carousing habits and lackluster record, the following day's New York Daily News included the well-remembered lead suggested by columnist Dick Young, "The imperfect man pitched the perfect game."

Presented here is a rare souvenir plate that was made to commemorate this miraculous day in baseball, preserved in near mint condition.

DUZ laundry detergent soap box
DUZ laundry detergent soap box
Here's an item worthy of a mid-20th century Americana time capsule. It's a vintage unopened box of Duz heavy duty detergent soap, circa 1960s. As an incentive bonus to buy this product, the manufacturer, Proctor & Gamble, included one piece of kitchen glassware in each box which delighted American housewives and homemakers, many of whom would start collections of these, wanting complete sets, and therefore buying lots and lots of soap. Take a look at the family (photographically depicted on the back of the box) oooh-ing and aaah-ing (mostly oooh-ing) over these glasses and you'll see what I mean. This particular example contains a "classic teardrop" juice glass and is in outstanding unopened condition with the juice glass nestled safely inside. Looks just like it did when it came off the shelf 50 years ago. A couple of minor dings on the corners keep me from calling this mint but it's the nicest you'll ever see and possibly a one-of-a-kind rarity.

Tang orange breakfast drink jar
Tang orange breakfast drink jar
Tang is an orange fruit-flavored drink, originally formulated by General Foods Corporation scientist William A. Mitchell in 1957. It was first marketed in powdered form in 1959. Tang was famously utilized in some early NASA manned space flights. In 1962, when Mercury astronaut John Glenn conducted eating experiments in orbit, Tang was selected for the menu, and it was also used during some Gemini flights. Sales of Tang were poor until NASA used it on John Glenn's Mercury flight and the subsequent Gemini missions. Since then, it was closely associated with the U.S. manned spaceflight program, leading to the misconception that Tang was invented for the space program. Presented here is an early Instant Tang orange breakfast juice drink mix glass jar.
