Whitey Ford wiffle ball
Whitey Ford wiffle ball
Edward Charles "Whitey" Ford spent his entire 18-year baseball career with the New York Yankees. Ford began his Major League Baseball career on July 1, 1950, with the Yankees and made a spectacular debut, winning his first nine decisions before losing a game in relief. Ford received a handful of Most Valuable Player votes despite throwing just 112 innings, and was voted the AL Rookie of the Year by the Sporting News. Eventually Ford became the #1 pitcher of the Yankees. In 1955, Ford led the American League in complete games and games won; in 1956 in earned run average and winning percentage; in 1958, in earned run average; and in both 1961 and 1963, in games won and winning percentage. Ford won the Cy Young Award in 1961. Ford was New York's Game One pitcher in the 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1961, 1962, 1963, and 1964 World Series. He is the only pitcher to start four consecutive Game Ones, a streak he reached twice. Ford retired from baseball in 1967 at the age of 38. He was elected to baseball's Hall of Fame in 1974 with his longtime pal and Yankee teammate Mickey Mantle; at that time, the Yankees retired his number 16.

Presented here is a rare early vintage Whitey Ford wiffle ball toy, mint in the original box. It was manufactured by The Wiffle Ball Inc. in Shelton, Conn. This is one of the earlier type smaller wiffle balls that measures approximately 2 and 1/2 inches across. The ball also comes with it's original paperwork instruction sheet.

1968 Topps Mickey Mantle baseball "Game" card
In the 1960s, the Topps trading card company boosted sales of baseball cards by including special 'premium' items, featuring star players, in packs of baseball cards. In 1961 and 1962 there were baseball player 'stamps'; in 1963 there were 'peel-offs', following that were coins [1964], rub-offs [1966], decals [1969], etc. Each year Topps did something different. For the 1968 series, baseball's elite players showed up on a set of "Game" cards with which the kids who collected them could actually play a simulated game of baseball. Presented here is a highlight of set - the Mickey Mantle card - which features a head shot of 'the Mick' and a printed signature. In 1968, Mickey's career was winding down; he only scrapes out a single!

BEATLE WIG toy
BEATLE WIG toy
The Beatles revolutionized pop music with their unique melodic sound. But their pop culture status went far beyond just music. Their style caused controversy and changed fashion across the board – and that included their haircuts. The mop-top cut (so called because the long, stringy hair style resembled the strands of a mop) was unlike anything people had seen before. Traditional cuts had been short and neat, carefully held in place with copious amounts of Brylcreem. The Beatles haircuts were originally styled by Astrid Kircher, the girlfriend to original Beatles bassist Stuart Sutcliffe, and herself a rock photographer. The outrageous new cuts were long enough to touch ears, collars, and fall into the eyes.

When the Beatles came to America and found fame and fortune, they also found that kids were quickly copying their hair cuts. Boys rebelled against their parents and teachers by styling their hair long and loose to mimic their idols. But they met resistance. Viewed as a stance against authority, Beatles haircuts were banned in schools, and parents forbid their children to get the cut. But all was not lost. If the hair style was truly out of your reach, you could always buy a Beatles wig. That way, you could still rock out with your favorite band at the concert, but go home as a conservative young man to mom and dad.

Presented here is a rare original and "the only" Authentic Beatle Wig, made by the Lowell Toy Mfg. Corp., Bronx 56, NY. [The pre-zip code header card dates this to the early 1960s.] Very few of these have survived and even fewer in the original packaging. Maybe a handful of these exist in this condition today.

original Twister game by Milton Bradley
original Twister game by Milton Bradley
In 1966, the Milton Bradley Company released a new game called Twister. It was the first game that used players’ bodies as playing pieces, requiring them to bend and stretch in challenging positions. The object of the game was to outmaneuver your opponents by placing your hands and feet on the colored circles as directed by the spinner. To begin, each player places one foot on a yellow circle and the other foot on a blue circle that are nearest their Twister end. Spin the spinner to find out if you move a hand or foot and to which color. But watch out! Anyone who falls, or lets an elbow or a knee touch the mat, is out of the game. The winner is the last player who is able to stay balanced on the mat.

Milton Bradley had low expectations for Twister's success and at first, game sales were slow. But an appearance on the “Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson changed everything. On May 3, 1966, Carson played a game of Twister with his guest for that evening, Eva Gabor. The audience went wild with laughter as the two celebrities stretched their bodies into unusual positions, challenging each other’s dexterity. The sight of Johnny sprawled on the mat with Eva Gabor sent Americans rushing to stores to buy their own Twister game. Later that year, 3 million copies of the game were sold to households across America. Milton Bradley had a winner on their hands!!

Offered here is a fabulous and rare original Twister game from 1966. It appears gently used and complete with spinner.

Interesting and unusual hand-painted wooden folk art TOYS display sign. It is fully wired and was intended to be a light-up sign but I'm not sure if works. Displays beautifully with great eye appeal.

I recently did some minor restoration work on this sign, cleaning off the tape residue on the upper right corner and re-painting the wood on the left border [see photos of sign displayed in gallery].

vintage baseball punchboard, circa 1940s
Before we got hooked on the lottery, the American public received their daily dose of gambling through these popular punchboards. The punchboards came in a variety of sizes displaying countless subjects, including baseball. The offered 12" x 15" punchboard sports 1,500 different 'punches', each one offering the player a chance at a cash prize. Only four of the punches have been used and the remainder are still sealed. In addition to the punches, over 50 charms, in the form of baseballs and pennants, can be viewed from the front; I assume that they are some sort of consolation prizes. Only one of these charms has been awarded. A great display piece!

"GUIDE TO NATURAL BOWLING" by Victor Kalman
Bowling has a long and rich history, and today is one of the most popular sports in the world. In the 1930s a collection of objects was discovered in a child's grave in Egypt that appeared to be used for a crude form of bowling. If this was correct, then bowling traces its ancestry to 3200 BC.
English, Dutch and German settlers all imported their own variations of bowling to America. The earliest mention of it in serious American literature is by Washington Irving, when Rip Van Winkle awakens to the sound of "crashing ninepins". The first permanent American bowling location probably was for lawn bowling, in New York's Battery area. Now the heart of the financial district, New Yorkers still call the small plot Bowling Green.
The game had its ups and downs in America. An 1841 Connecticut law made it illegal to maintain "any ninepin lanes", probably because bowling was the object of much gambling. This is why the current tenpin variety evolved.
By the late 1800s, tenpin bowling was prevalent in many states such as New York, Ohio and as far "west" as Illinois. However, details like ball weights and pin dimensions varied by region. On September 9, 1895, at Beethoven Hall in New York City, the American Bowling Congress was born. Soon standardization would be established, and major national competitions could be held.
Bowling technology took a big step forward about the same time. Balls used to be primarily lignum vitae, a very hard wood. But in 1905 the first rubber ball, the "Evertrue" was introduced, and in 1914 the Brunswick Corporation successfully promoted the Mineralite ball, touting its "mysterious rubber compound".
Now organized, with agreed upon standards, the game grew in popularity. In 1951 another technological breakthrough set the stage for massive growth. American Machine and Foundry Company (AMF, then a maker of machinery for the bakery, tobacco and apparel businesses) purchased the patents to Gottfried Schmidt's automatic pinspotter, and by late 1952 production model pinspotters were introduced. No longer did a proprietor have to rely on "pinboys".
Television embraced bowling in the 1950s, and the game's popularity grew exponentially. NBC's broadcast of "Championship Bowling" was the first network coverage of bowling. Coverage proliferated with shows like "Make That Spare", "Celebrity Bowling", and "Bowling For Dollars". In 1961, ABC became the first network to telecast competition of the Pro Bowlers Association. Successful promoter, agent and entrepreneur Eddie Elias founded the PBA, and with his leadership, the Pro Bowlers Tour became a hugely popular stalwart of ABC sports broadcasting. Joined later by telecasts of the Ladies Pro Bowlers Tour (now the Professional Women's Bowling Association, PWBA) millions of Americans witnessed and became interested in the sport.
Today, the sport of bowling is enjoyed by 95 million people in more than ninety countries worldwide.

This fully illustrated AMF Guide to Natural Bowling was prepared by Victor Kalman, bowling editor of Sports Illustrated magazine, with the assistance of a board of 36 famous bowling experts in the late 1950s. This paperback book even has a no-questions asked money back guarantee if, after practicing the methods in this book for 3 months, you don't raise your average score by 20 pins!! Original price 35 cents.
