Legendary Auctions: Awesome 1899 Brooklyn Folk Art Walking Staff

This is just incredible. No doubt a one of a kind item, an industrious and skilled craftsman took it upon himself to carve out this walking stick in honor of the 1899 Brooklyn Superbas. Once residing in the collection of Barry Halper and now available for sale from Legendary Auctions as a part of the Bill Mastro collection, this item features 11 players. Strangely, one player, a W. J. Klarke, is not a known Brooklyn player or Baseball player. In fact, I would be willing to bet that this is the carver himself. What better way to immortalize yourself, especially considering he took the time to carve this, then to add himself to the team. If I had the money I would go after this one.
