More on our website.

BOOKEND PAIRS:

Babe Ruth Bookends: (2) cast iron accessories; each is 9”-tall with Ruth completing his swing on a green rounded base
Baseball-Themed Bookends: (2) metallic accessories; each standing approximately 5”-tall with leather baseball glove covering complete with grommets and stitching. Includes glove, bat and ball accents.
Baseball-Themed Bookends: (2) 5-1/2”-tall silver metallic accessories with relief likenesses of batter, catcher and fielder on the sides

(4) SINGLE BOOKENDS:
Includes: (3) iron “batters” (all different) respectively measuring 9”, 10” and 11” tall; and a 6”-tall battery and batter steel sculpture (with paint chipping throughout)

(2) BASEBALL BANKS: includes: a gold-colored metallic “batter” standing 5-12/”-tall with a coin slot on the upper back to facilitate coin insertion; and a 9-1/8 x 5-1/2”-tall steel structure whose surface is home to a sliding baserunner with a catcher and umpire awaiting his arrival. A lever on the far right activates the baserunner and simultaneously brings down the catcher’s tag and the umpire’s right arm (as the baseruner’s right foot pushes the coin into the slot). This vintage keepsakes presents nicely, but needs mechanical tweaks.

(3) LOUISVILLE SLUGGER BAT HOLDERS: (3) 6”-tall plastic display accessories (orange with black holders; yellow with blue holders and all red). Each holds (10) Louisville Slugger mini-bats (there are 29 mini-bats included).
