    Description

    1922 Hank Severeid Presentational Pocket Watch A strong season behind the plate for the St. Louis Browns catcher earned him this tangible expression of appreciation from the fans. The classic "Illinois" gold-filled pocket watch is attractively engraved on case back "To Henry Severeid from Citizens of St. Louis 1922." Watch is not currently operational, but we suspect a servicing would remedy that small concern. The watch is otherwise in fine condition, with only minor handling wear. Attached to the watch is a yellow and pink gold filled chain (14" long) from which a yellow gold baseball fob dangles. This fob is engraved "American League Champions 1926 from Story City Fans," a nice gesture from Severeid's hometown in recognition of his service to the 1926 Yanks. Consigned by the Severeid family.

    The Hank Severeid Collection.

    This is one of nine lots deriving from the personal collection of Henry "Hank" Severeid, whose baseball career began as a twenty-year old catcher for the 1911 Cincinnati Reds and ended only with his sudden passing while working as a scout for the 1968 Boston Red Sox. A member of the 1925 Senators and 1926 Yankees American League Championship teams, Severeid dedicated over half a century of his life to our National Pastime, and Heritage is pleased to present the following selection of artifacts from his journey. All lots are consigned directly by the Severeid family.
