Very cool. Probably my favorite player from my childhood.

Looks like it's not worth too much according to previous auction results. Louisville Slugger model would fetch more. Pretty cool to have regardless. Again, who the hell donates this stuff we find?!

 

 

 

Remnants of #3 on both ends:

I decided to stop again since I found a couple of ties I liked yesterday. This time at another store.

Lots of horrific ties at this place but a couple of decent ones.





I think I like this one, in particular but I have years of reading this forum before I'll have anything remotely similar to good taste.



I usually picture other readers being appalled. smile.gif

Oh, I did find two shirts with the same zegna brand that sounded familiar.

They don't fit me, though.

I'm like 75% sure the top pair is Gravati and pecary.

Thrifted some Ferragamos and gave them to my brother.


Gave him these Walter Newberg for Wilkes Bashford numbers too. Are these something exotic? Did I screw up by giving them away and not flipping?

May not resell for much these days, but definitley his game model. The knob of bat is the tell...not usually available for retail with those specs.

Definitely Lizard. Wholecuts would be highly unusual - Lizards are not that big and getting a skin to do a whole cut would be extremely hard to find. Unless they are super tiny size?

Anyone have use for a pair of shell Hanovers with a crack right on the upper? If so, PM me right quick, because they're bound for the donation bin otherwise.

Flip Talk: Is there any market for M65s from other countries? I have access to a handful of Croatian ones, presumably from the 90s.

Hey Guys,

Living in a small hippie town in the Pacific North West, I don't really get much of the amazing finds from many other places. That being said, I do sometimes come across some interesting items like this:







I never heard of "Operations" before, but upon doing some google research, I found out that it was a high-end mens label similar to Engineered Garments that went bankrupt back in 2010. It also seemed that they had a pretty good reputation according to Yelp. The blazer is almost certainly new as it came with the small factory baggie of extra buttons still attached.
