    Early 1900's Roger Bresnahan Personal Toiletries Lot of 4. Stepping aside from baseball for a minute, this lot includes four personal toiletries from Hall of Famer Roger Bresnahan. Included is a silver flask measuring 5x3.5.1.5" marked "Xmas 1901" on the lid, his initials engraved on both sides, and marked on the bottom as "Derby Silver Co. Quadruple Plate 1837." Scratched and tarnished but with a wonderful patina. Next up is a silver brush measuring 7x2x2," marked "R.P.B. June 11-'02." Some normal denting and scratching.

    Also included is a 5" long shaving brush with a rubber handle and Siberian bristles, as well as a porcelain shaving mug with "Roger Bresnahan" in gold lettering and an image of a player at bat. There is a small chip out of the base and the gold is flaking, but the image of an early 20th century baseball player is extremely unusual found on a shaving mug.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
