I spent a total of $185. One item is really neat with New Orleans history.

Clothes: I didn’t pay more than $4 for any of these











Vegas:


80’s AD&D figures $20


SW figures, a few from 77/78 $20


Box of slides, but I bought it because some of the slides are from 1958 Indy 500 $10




$1


$1 1965 Frisbee


$15 each, long bows






$15 each Beatles albums






IYKYK (so close, but not it)




$20 New Orleans Pelicans mini bat. The bat company changed its name in 1927, so this puts it in the Babe Ruth era of the Pelicans








The bat is my big hit today. I have no clue the value.

If that SW Jaewa figure had a vinyl cape, it’s worth over 1k.

Surprised there’s no comments on the bat. I think it’s cool as shite. Nothing like it anywhere, and non-directly tied to Babe Ruth.

A lot of people didn’t know Ruth played in New Orleans for three years, spring training.

I think the bat is by far the coolest item, regardless of the value.

It’s a mini-bat in rough condition and has no direct ties to Ruth.

Enjoy it if you like it, but i wouldn’t get your hopes up.

It’s 100 years old, and tied to the New Orleans Pelicans during the Babe Ruth era.

I did say “non-direct” link to Ruth.

I’m guessing it will go for over $100.

your biggest find may be the beatles yesterday and today.
Do you know the story behind this controversial album?

It was released around the Vietnam war and originally had the beatles sitting with a bunch of baby doll parts.
This caused outrage and immediately halted production to replace with a new album cover which you have there.

before they released the new album cover they had a surplus of the old cover so they made stickers to place over all these albums so they could sell them.

I have a framed one that has the sticker peeled off that reveals the banned album cover but was told that this album with the sticker over the old album that has not been pulled off is worth a pretty penny.


Please google before you sell.

The Bear recurve bow is a nice one. If not micro splits it’ll still perform.

Yes, I know. The butcher album is one of my holy grails/Moby Dicks. I’ve been hunting one in the wild for 20+ years.
I put “IYKYK” just above the photo in OP.
My heart did skip a beat when I saw it, but as soon as I saw the gold stamp, I knew it wasn’t a butcher cover.
