I saw this on ebay and i thought it was a nice piece. Not sure if anyone else saw this or won it . Anyone on the board have any others similar to this. i would be interested in seeing any team pics, postcards, supplements of the 1908-1910 Boston American RedSox.

I had a feeling this went under the radar. Damn! sorry guys next time i will say something sooner. Would like to see this find a home in a fellow VBC compadre.

I've seen that one on ebay 3-4 times now...I had always assumed that it was fake. This one went for more than any of the others.

No links, but all 3-4 times it has been in the past two years.

I have seen a few examples of real calendars, most recently at the Chicago Sun Times Show about 14 months ago a dealer had two that were slightly beat up. I remember one of the teams was Boston AL and I cant remember the other team I saw. It certainly is a legitimate issue, but without seeing this copy in person it is impossible to tell if it is real or not.

I believe this is nothing more than a bad reproduction

I have seen the real thing before and this isn't it.

1910 Cubs Calendar

The Cubs are another team depicted on this style of calendar. I picked this up at the last Philly show a couple of months back.

BASEBALL TREASURES has a picture of the real item

February 5 2007, 2:00 PM 

On page 243 of the Douglas Congdon-Martin & John Kashmanian book, "BASEBALL TREASURES, Memorabilia from the National Pastime," you can see what the real calender should look like. Here's a scan from the book:





To me the color of the ebay listing does not look the same..too grey.

The only reason I said that I assumed they were fake was because the first time I saw it on ebay I checked the other items the seller had for sale and most of it was the questionable stuff that is sold by the scammers - Mammy cookie jars, Red Rock Cola calendars and crap like that.

The seller of the recent one on ebay does not appear to sell that kind of stuff, but after checking the first one I had assumed all to be fake.

Another red flag

February 5 2007, 2:13 PM 

Another red flag for me was the careful description by the seller..."I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THIS IS AN OLD CALENDAR AND ASSUME IT IS A 1910 PRINT OF A RED SOX CALENDAR THAT WAS INSERTED INTO A PUBLICATION AS A MARKETING PREMIUM..." The key word being PRINT!

for the record

February 5 2007, 2:17 PM 

I asked the seller if they were revealing the reserve on the item. Their response of "Well now, that would take all of the fun out of it, wouldn't it?" was so inspiring I chose not to bid. It looks like their flippant response might have saved me a headache.....
