Description

    1902-08 Roger Bresnahan New York Giants Traveling Trunk. For those fans of very unique and rarely seen player used memorabilia, or anyone wanting a fascinating discussion piece to put in a man cave, this enormous travel trunk will ably fulfill the task. Measuring 20x34x20", the wooden trunk has cloth, leather and metal embellishments and latches. Two pieces of modern wood have been secured inside the bottom to help preserve the structural integrity, which feels very solid. Hinges work fine although there is no latching mechanism on the front.

    Mounted on modern wheels, the trunk has significant wear and tear with broken pieces, worn fabric, broken leather straps, missing wood, etc. but as with a nice game used bat, it only serves to document the heavy use Bresnahan got out of it. On the sides is written: "Roger P. Bresnahan - Toledo, O - New York Baseball Club." This would be astounding as a vintage piece of furniture to use as storage in any room, but stuffing it full of game used jerseys, bats, gloves and other memorabilia would make for a museum quality display. Letter of provenance from the Bresnahan family.
