Editor Input Needed

Inside the Park Collectibles Spring Phone/Internet Auction will feature 125 lots of vintage sports memorabilia. The auction, which closes June 9, will focus on vintage figural and display type items.


The auction leads off with several lots from ITPC's recent Gibbs-Conner estate find. Items included are never-before-seen examples of mascot banks of the Boston Braves, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia A's and several NFL banks including the Baltimore Colts and the Philadelphia Eagles. There will also be mascot banks from Stanford Pottery, Quinco, and the works of Fred Kail.

There will be a host of other figural memorabilia including three original Hartland baseball statues in pristine condition complete with boxes and tags.

There will also be a number of lots of figural decanters including hard-to-find examples of Brooks Robinson and Johnny Unitas, as well as several NHL team decanters issued by McCormick. The auction also features an incredibly rare 1959 World Champion Baltimore Colts cup and saucer set with facsimile autographs of the entire team adorning both pieces. Other NFL-related display pieces include vintage helmet plaques and Dave Boss canvas team paintings. There will also be a nice selection of rare baseball pennants and other miscellaneous display items.

It would not be an ITPC auction without a nice selection of vintage bobbing head dolls and this auction will not disappoint even the most advanced collectors. There are 50 dolls in this auction that include examples of Roberto Clemente, dolls from baseball and football's Black Face series, NFL Kissing Pairs and an incredible Salt Lake City Eagles hockey doll.
