Collector’s Corner for Sept. 27, 2022

Posted in:

I was living in Dallas in the spring of 1972, so I have a special regard for the original Texas Rangers logo. The cowboy hat on the ball, the little sheriff’s badge in the R, all that. So when I came across this Rangers item, I did a double-take. Normally, the team name was centered across the ball. However, with this Rangers pennant, they weren’t quite able to pull that off, leaving the ball mostly blank! The seller also notes “has stains, not sure if they’ll come out,” but it might be worth it for this unique design.

Now for the rest of this week’s picks:

Speaking of Florida, I hope all Uni Watch fans in the state stay safe this week from Hurricane Ian!

That’ll do it for this edition of CC. See you back here next week!

    I agree. As a former member of the sousaphone section of the OSUMB, whose own mascot is Chiquita banana that’s says “Beat Blue” on it, I came here very excited for a Chiquita banana radio!

    New York Football Giants — groan. Enough already. Can we bury this along with the “PLAYOFFS????” and “PRACTICE????” tedia? Can we “thrown them under the bus”? Thank you.

    Believe it or not (I was surprised by it myself), the Giants actually use that phrasing — “New York Football Giants” — on their current business cards, letterhead, etc. So it’s not just slang or a convention — it’s literally what the team calls itself!

    Well I’ll be.

    Never mind.

    Thanks for the info, Paul. I should known better than to tangle with the masters.

    I mean know, not known.
