1909 Cap Anson Noisemaker

1909 Cap Anson Noisemaker

This baseball noisemaker includes a portrait of 19th century player "Capt. A.C. Anson," inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1939. Most known for owning a stake in the Colts, which ultimately were renamed the Cubs, and infamously, for erecting the color barrier which stood for 60 years. Adrian Constantine Anson, better known as Cap, has a plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame that reads "GREATEST HITTER AND GREATEST NATIONAL LEAGUE PLAYER-MANAGER OF 19TH CENTURY." The folksy cardboard paddle reads "Big Clarinda Fair," with dates in 1909, and promotes "Baseball Games Wild West Shows, Balloon Races, 55th Iowa Regimental Band, Horse Racing. Cap Anson, Former Manager of the Chicago Cubs, will umpire all the ball games." Inside is an in-depth promotion offering a $600 purse for Base Ball divided by the winners of first, second and third place, with an advertisement for McKinney's Wild West Show. This unusual piece of baseball Americana is the only one known to exist. Measures 5" and overall, EX.
