1911-1929 Philadelphia A's World Championship Collection (3)
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $355.50
Collection of three quality Philadelphia A's souvenir pieces, each commemorating a separate World Championship season (1911, 1913, and 1929). 1) 1911 Philadelphia A's World Champions commemorative plate. The plate features an illustration of a white elephant holding a flag reading "1911 Worlds Champions." Superimposed on the elephant are portrait images of twenty-two team members, all of whom are identified by name, including Mack, Collins, Plank, Bender, Danforth, Baker, and Coombs. Produced by Cook Pottery Company. The plate (ten inches in diameter) displays light crazing throughout, as well as light discoloration in the center. In Very Good condition overall. 2) 1913 Woodrow Wilson real-photo postcard. The front of the card pictures Wilson at his January 1913 inaugural; however, the reverse features a special stamp, in the shape of a pennant, reading "Philadelphia Americans/1913/Champions of the World." The postcard (5.5 x 3.5 inches) has been mailed and bears a typewritten message and address. The postmark lists no specific month, only the day ("18") and year ("1913"). Ex, with light handling wear. Rare! (We have never seen this postcard before.) 3) 1929 The Galloping A's sheet music. Composed by Wallace Henderson and Billy James, and published by the Pennant Music Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The colorful cover illustration pictures manager Connie Mack holding a pennant reading "Worlds Champ's 1929" while he sits atop a white elephant. The sheet music (9.25 x 12.25) displays a number of creases throughout, as well as a few border chips and tears. In Very Good condition. Total: 3 items (plate, postcard, and sheet music). Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $355.50
