What a treasure trove of sports memorabilia in Chicago this weekend. Carlton Hendricks of Sports Antiques.com has posted his first batch of photos from the National Sports Collectors Convention. Check them out here. Below are some of my favorites.
Here is a group of 5 very rare Spalding trophies dating to the early part of the 20th Century.
Below is a great memorabilia display featuring bobbleheads, gloves, hats, display boxes, a signed football and a very rare bobblehead set of the Beatles (second shelf from the top on the far right).
These two statues are extremely rare. They were made in Germany in the late 1800's and depict early American Baseball players. Right now the manufacturer and exact age escape me, but as soon as I can find some additional background info I will pass it along.
