The Barry Halper Collection of Baseball Memorabilia

January 4th, 2008 by Alex

Here’s something I got for Christmas this year.

The Barry Halper Collection of Baseball Memorabilia

This is a catalog from a Sotheby’s auction held in 1999. Amazingly, all the items up for sale were owned by a single collector, Barry Halper, who acquired much of his collection directly from the athletes or their families. How else would someone get Ty Cobb’s dentures? (they sold for $7,475) This three-volume set has over 2,000 pictures, descriptions of the items, and estimated auction prices. There’s some really amazing stuff in here and I’ve only begun to go through it.

Cover to “The Early Years” volume
500 Home Run Club Cards
Lou Gehrig Ring
T206 Proof Strip
Ted Williams Triple Crown
First Hall of Fame Class

This set makes a great gift for baseball fans, but finding it can be a little tricky. For those interested in grabbing a copy: Find it on eBay!

    Your residential garden will be enhanced by fruit trees
    and other dwarf trees—or perhaps a stand of cypress, mulberry or fig trees.
    In this world of hustle bustle, work pressures
    and a lot of crowd many a time one wants his own space.
    If you plan to landscape your entire yard, do not draw any existing trees or
    bushes on your base design.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi! I’m Dehoff. My nephew wants to read French and Spanish at Oxbridge and I am about to arrange French tutoring and Spanish tuition for him with bespoke languages tuition. I’ve heard that their Spanish tuition is excellent. Can anyone confirm whether their French tutoring is as good as their Spanish tutoring? The website looks really very good, but I’ve heard nothing about their Spanish tuition! Confirmation welcome! It’s difficult to know from a website alone!

  22. lessons in German Says:

    Hi! I’m Pancho. We’ve been told that bespoke languages tuition offers excellent French lessons, German lessons, Spanish tutoring and 11 Plus tutoring. We would like to find a language tutor for my daughter and an 11 Plus tutor for my niece; both must be superbly qualified, very experienced and inspiring. Is bespoke languages tuition the right choice? We think they’re international!
