Conlon Collection sold; court to sort claims

This is from the Arkansas Business online paper, which has been covering the John Rogers story since its onset.
This ran on August 29th:

The famed Conlon Collection of early major league baseball images sold for nearly $1.8 million at auction on Saturday.
The single sale of 7,462 glass-plate negatives produced by photographer Charles Conlon (1868-1945) was handled by Heritage Auctions in Dallas.
About $1.5 million of the auction proceeds will be deposited in the court registry until a hearing before Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza can sort out the competing claims by creditors.
A hearing date is hoped for by year's end.
"Lots of people, lots of conflicting claims," said Michael McAfee, court-appointed receiver for the former business assets of John Rogers.
The identity of the Aug. 26 buyer is shrouded for now, but sources indicate that two of the three leading bidders intended to send the collection to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

http://www.arkansasbusiness.com/arti...hn-rogers-debt


"There's a very high probability that it's heading to Cooperstown, which is where it should be," McAfee said.
The Conlon Collection that Rogers acquired in June 2010 numbered about 8,300 pieces. In a past interview, McAfee said he wasn't sure what happened to reduce the count to about 7,500 before he came aboard and inventoried assets.
"Some of the Conlon plates seem to have evaporated," McAfee testified at a Jan. 20 court hearing.

Charlie Sands (1947 - 2016)

Charlie Sands, a reserve catcher for the Yankees, Pirates, Angels and A's, passed away on August 22. He was 68.

The stars simply did not align for Charlie Sands to be the player he might have been. But he played in the major leagues, was part of a World Series winning team, and left his mark on the game.

Charlie was selected out of high school by the Orioles in the 21st round in 1965. The following year, he achieved some notoriety by catching all 29 innings of what was then the longest game in professional baseball history. The Yankees took the receiver in that year's Rule V draft, so Charlie spent all of 1967 with NY, gathering splinters and getting just one pinch at bat on the season (and striking out).

Traded to Pittsburgh, Charlie served as the 3rd string catcher on the 1971 world champion Pirates. He got a single at bat in the Series, pinch hitting in game two (and struck out). Charlie spent most of 1972 in the minors, suffering through a number of nagging injuries of the type every catcher experiences. He suffered bruised ribs in a home plate collision, and endured numerous injuries to his thumb, hand and wrist. For the most part, he played through them. His reward? One September pinch at bat (not a hit, but not a strike out).

In 1973, Charlie was traded to Detroit for Chris Zachary as spring training was coming to an end. A few weeks later, he was traded on to the Angels. He had to wait for September, again, to get a look at the major league level, but at least he got into 17 games and managed a .273 average.

1974 should have been Charlie's year. He hit .524 for the Halos in spring action. But Charlie suffered a knee injury (torn ligaments) blocking the plate in the final pre-season game. After missing a month, Charlie returned and was actually getting semi-regular playing time, though he was finding it hard to get into the hitting groove he'd had in the spring. The occasional power was encouraging, if not overwhelming. But then Charlie sustained several injuries to his throwing arm--particularly the elbow and shoulder--and he was back on the shelf for another month or so. He returned in September and hit .273 for the month, primarily as a designated hitter (he did not catch at all in September).

In the Spring of 1975, the Angels released Charlie. He caught on with the A's, who released pinch runner Herb Washington to make room. He pinch hit in three games in early May (one walk, one hit, and one strikeout) before he was dispatched to Tuscon where he would play through 1976 without another trip to the majors. While with Tuscon, though, Charlie did have one more mark to leave on the game (one for which, as a Mets fan, I'm very thankful). His roommate was Skip Lockwood, who had by then failed in the major leagues twice--as an infielder and as a starting pitcher. When the Yankees released Skip in April 1975, his confidence was shot and he figured his career was over. Charlie got Skip to embrace the role of relief pitcher and suddenly Skip's career had new life. When I think of the best Mets closers of all-time, I don't think of John Franco or Armando Benitez (God, no) or Billy Wagner or even Jeurys Familia. I think of Tug McGraw, Jesse Orosco and Skip Lockwood. Just sayin'.

After baseball, Charlie found success in real estate and opened a chain of restaurants called "Charley's" which are scattered throughout Virginia and North Carolina. Its possible that Charlie's career might have turned out differently but for the Rule V draft and injuries. Or he might just have been a quad-A hitter to begin with. But he did put up decent numbers in the minors. His career minor league average was .270, but, in Triple-A (where he spent 6 of his 8 minor league seasons), it was .283. He hit 87 minor league home runs--75 in Triple-A. And he drove in 336 runs in the minors (251 in AAA).

Once upon a time, a good Charlie Sands image was hard to find. Not so anymore. The Topps Vault offers up good images of Charlie with Pittsburgh and California and a couple of OK images with the Yankees (wish the Yankees ones were a bit larger, but at least they're color).

BS 417 - 426 (417 & 418 are NYY)
BW 521 - 522
GH 388
HX 244 - 245
KA 119 - 122

That leaves us only pining for an Oakland A's image, which Merkle was kind enough to give us a few years back (you'll find it here).

The color Yankees image below was posted to Baseball-Birthdays and was originally an offering from eBay seller brealdiamond. I've cropped and brightened it (and desaturated a tad).

The B&W Pirates image was posted by the Baseball Hall of Fame on their Facebook page along with the notice of Charlie's passing.

Charlie Sands - cleaner

Not only did he only get that one at bat while spending all of 1967 as the rostered Yankees bullpen catcher, but he was in camp with the team in 1968, 1969, and 1970 without getting any closer to returning to the majors than 67 games in AAA.

A spring training shot, I believe from 1967, after some kind of collision with a baseball or a razor blade or both:

Cesar Cedeno 1970

Kyle's is currently selling this team issued postcard I have never seen before, as Cedeno spent only two months with L.A. in 1986.

Only other color Cedeno Dodgers image I've seen was posted by tnfoto right here on page 872 of this thread.

Mike Beard 1974

Not a lot of color of this Atlanta lefty of the '70s - including one in the very, very generic Braves' 1976 windbreaker.

Bo Belinsky 1962

Quite a tour at the end of his career and seldom seen in color in any of his stops: Houston, White Sox (minors only), St. Louis, Angels again (minors only), Pirates, Reds. Topps takes care of the Houston one, spring training 1967:

Rick Behenna 1983

Highly thought of, wild right-hander whom the Braves sent to Cleveland in the 1983 Len Barker trade. 11 starts for the second Tribe over three years and not a win among them.

Jim Baumer 1949

One of the more curious figures in baseball history. After just 85 games as an 18-year old shortstop in the Three-I League in 1949 - and only batting .218 - he was inexplicably promoted to the parent White Sox. There he made five starts, went 4-for-10 plus two walks, doubled, tripled - and went back to the minors the next year and stayed there until the Reds brought him north twelve seasons later (one of the longest intervals between major league appearances in history).

Now 30, Baumer got eight starts at second base, but on the day of the last of them Cincinnati completed a trade for Don Blasingame of the Giants, and that was it for Baumer. Thirteen days later he was unloaded by the Reds to Detroit just before the cutdown date. He played three more years in the minors and then at 32 joined the Ni****etsu Lions of the Japanese Pacific League for five seasons as a slugging infielder (and getting on a couple of baseball cards there). Returning to the States he became a scout, then farm director of the Brewers in 1974, then their General Manager in 1975, and ultimately a Phillies' Vice President.

another reasonably good Belinsky-with-Houston color image can be found here.

Good Evening Guys - Not sure if this is correct procedure, or not, but I am looking for possible pictures of Jack Reed, Ken Hunt and Russ Snyder in New York Yankee Uniforms. They formed the starting outfield for the 1958 New Orleans Pelicans ironically Managed by Charlie Silvera. Thanks so much for any help anyone may be able to provide. This is my first day as a member so, please forgive my ignorance.

Jack Reed courtesy of Merkle...

The only thing I have for Ken Hunt as a Yankee is a scan of his '60 Leaf card, and I have nothing at all for Snyder in pinstripes.

There's a "help finding photos" thread here.

I can't believe you found the pictures of Jackie Reed and Ken Hunt so quickly - thank y'all so very much. Was not sure if Russ Snyder ever attended training camp with the Yankees, with both of them, as he was traded to Kansas City. Again - thanks very much.

Russ Snyder was a non-roster invitee to the 1959 New York Yankees training camp, but remained on the Richmond roster during that period. He was returned to the minors in early April. I searched three different newspaper services looking for a photo of him in a Yankees uniform, but came up with nothing. Perhaps one will turn up someday if you keep checking eBay and other sites periodically.

Not especially tough as a Cub. Don't see him as a Giant too often. I just love the name (and how can you not hear it said in the voice of the PA dude from Montreal?).
