(LAST UPDATED-(August 25, 2015)-just revised all the prices on the remaining 5 panel sets. I have sold many these the last few weeks. Only (8 sets) remain on Ebay-see ebay seller name "nce1" or you can VIEW them under the tab-"5 PANEL SETS FOR SALE". In addition there are (7 sets) still in Wichita, hanging on my wall, in my private collection/mostly those featuring M-12's.

-just lowered prices (update-One has SOLD, so only ONE LEFT!) of the LAST 2-sided CARDBOARD (Winchester STORE COUNTER-TOP Displays) from my LIFETIME Collection. These are COMPLETE with the ORIGINAL PACKAGING Cover and totally original, no restoration, fading, any marks or other defects. STONE MINT! and I only use that term when it actually applies, which it does in the case of these two pieces.

I have also listed the very, very RARE "WINCHESTER" Poster-titled "THE WOMAN STANDING with HAT and RIFLE" as shown on p.39/top right of the "RARITES" book. This AMERICAN version, shows the Woman standing and holding her cowbay hat in the RIGHT HAND and Winchester Model 1892 in her Left hand. Any Model 92 Winchester Advertising is scarce and this is most rare! Attributed the famous American artist Frank Tenny Johnson (who did only a very few other pieces for Winchester).

I have also listed the very rare BRONZE "WINCHESTER STORE" sign. (see 1926/27 Winchester STORE PRODUCT CATALOG on p.259.)

(note)-the LARGE DIECUT-Bistol FLY FISHING SCENE by Philip R.Goodwin-ca.1912 has just SOLD!

MARCH 4, 2015)-Just listed a very RARE "THE WINCHESTER STORE" Golf DISPLAY/MERCHANDISING FLOOR STAND-(perhaps only one known to exist). THis is the only one I have ever seen (heard rumors that perhaps another exisits, but never saw it, don't know who might have it (after 35 years of collecting), so maybe it really isn't out there (just full DISCLOSURE)! The pictures and text can be seen under the listings of WINCHESTER 5-panel sets. Scoll down that section-to where the SPORTS stuff is listed and then to the "WINCHESTER GOLF" SECTION. I have told you all I know about, but some information I am sure is still "out there", so if anyone can add to the story, please call or email me!

Also just listed a extremely rare "THE WINCHESTER STORE" brass plague-see futher description and text under the TAB-"Winchester ADVERTISING-for sale". Just go down this page a short ways and you will see it!

Just finished updating all the recent SALES, all listings should be current and accurate. About 2/3rds. of the WINCHESTER 5-panel SETS have been sold! All the panel sets are also listed on EBAY under the EBAY SELLER name "nce1"-his name is John Woodworth.

(p.s.) I have a frustrating formatting (HTML) software coding problem on the PHILIP R. GOODWIN page. Can't seem to find the problem in the HTML code. It's more difficult to read the information but IT IS ACCURATE and CURRENT! Please bear with me as I am working on a fix. Please call or email and I'll see if I can help you with this page!

We have completed the move into our new house in Wichita, Ks!! Have new (Wichita, Kansas) email address and new HOME telephone number- tim@thewinchesterstore.com and (316.634.1877).

I have been listing (FOR SALE) my entire collection of P.R.Goodwin Original Sketches, bronzes, and pencil/charcoal drawing. Some very rare and collectible items! See the tab "PHILIP R. GOOWIN"-items for Sale!

I am selling ALL my Winchester 5-panel sets of advertising (Large CARDBOARD Displays). These were used primarily in the Front Windows of the "WINCHESTER STORE". I have 97% of all the sets shown in the WINCHESTER "RARITIES" book, in fact most of those in the book are the very ones I am selling! I also have about (11) sets of panels, including some SINGLES PANELS that were not in the book.

I also have some MINT/NEVER USED Wood Frames, in addition to some nice non-original wood/PINE frames that are painted black/and some other SOLID OAK frames with a clear finish. All these have (10) PLEXIGLASS panels for clear viewing with complete protection and they are very easy to change out without causing any damage to the PANELS themselves. Just scrool down this page towards the bottom (AT THE END OF THE LISTINGS FOR THE 5 PANEL CARDBOARD SETS )and you will find all these listed!

If you have any questions or comments please call or email me.

I have sold my entire WINCHESTER Gun Collection! I am now concentrating on COLLECTING/BUYING only those WINCHESTER models (Rifle or Shotgun) with "STAINLESS STEEL" barrels, and other models as listed below

1-SEEKING TO BUY-any Winchester Gun (Shotgun or Rifle) with a "STAINLESS STEEL" barrel!

2-SEEKING TO BUY-good condition M-42's-(especially 2 1/2 inch chamber, SKEET GRADE/checkered and any SOLID RIB MODELS!). Also seeking CYCINDER, Imp.Cyl., No.1 SKEET (WS-1) and No.2 SKEET (WS-2) Choked models!)

"PHILIP R. GOODWIN"-(all Philip R. Goodwin are listed under a seperate tab titled "PHILIP R. GOODWIN-items For Sale!)"

-Also listing for sale, a very large supply of old Auction catalogs from Bob Strauss, Dixie/SOLDUSA, Wards, Langs etc. Also a very complete collection of WCA and WACA magazines, some of which are the oldest printed and in very limited supply. Also see a listing of Hunting and Collectibles magazines that are for sale!

I have sold 95% of my Winchester Gun Collection and now am concentrating only on Model-42's and Model-12's and Winchester with "STAINLESS STEEL" barrels. Please call or email with any for sale or trade!

I am also buying any shotshell box that says or has any designation of a "HARDWARE STORE". These may vary from just a few boxes made up privately by a Store or they might be the more traditional ones produced by a MAJOR CARTRIDGE firm like "WINCHESTER" or "PETERS". The Boxes will likely carry the name of the HARDWARE STORE, but all the loading will be done by the cartridge firm. There is ususally a notation on the box, stating who loaded the HULLS/shells. These are listed in full detail under the "Tim's WANT LIST" section of this website.

As always, I will buy direct from you or pay (up to a 10% FINDER'S FEE) and take all the risk myself. I can't possibly be at all the local Auctions, flea markets and estate/tag sales where this stuff still frequently shows up. I wish you good luck, hope you find some good items and call me. I will buy on the first call, given a good description and price!

If you find some pictures that do not load, or any broken links or other mistakes, I can and will fix them, if you would notify me!

(a personal target to publish a-"DECIATED book on just "WINCHESTER STORE" material!)

Over the last several years I have contributed to several books and articles on "Winchester" non-gun items, particularly in regards to ShotShell Boxes, Tools, Advertising and other pieces from the pre-war era. I am now preparing a book of my own on the WINCHESTER HARDWARE ERA, generally from 1918 to 1932. This endeavor will be concentrating on the "THE WINCHESTER STORES" and will detail some of the information about how long each store item was produced, rare pictures and documentation. There are enough books on WINCHESTER for now, so I intend to gather material and refine the document over the next several years and then publish a quality piece! This work should be interesting and informative to all "Winchester" collectors, and I am actively seeking your help and assitance in locating, (and purchasing if required) those pieces that will make this book unique! Particularly interested in any and all advertising (of any type) and all papers, files etc. that concern this period and WRACo's (Winchester Repeating Arms Co.) relationships with its vendors, suppliers, stores, supply houses, etc.

"Winchester CARTRIDGE BOARDS"-(from 1890's to 1937)

I would bet that 99% of most Winchester collectors haven't seen one of these, or know just exactly what it is. In 1922 The Wraco. factory sent out a Sales and Service bulletin that shows the plans for a individual WINCHESTER STORE to make a cartridge board themselves to display the typical shells sold in their trading area. I have two and here is the best one. The construction is much better, cleaner and its totally intact and best of all has a original letter pasted on the back! There are 4 rows of shells (the top 2 rows have 12 each and the bottom 2 rows have 14 each (total of 52) individually marked tags and shells. All shells are mounted to a nice board, covered with green felt. The individual shells are mounted with a single nail driven through the case casing and each tag is a original "WINCHESTER" (in red) that has the type of shell written neatly in black ink! This was very well done by the store itself (most of the stores had someone/craftsman who did their advertising panels and displays, so this would have been a task assigned to them. I just wonder why more of them haven't been discovered? The shells are all metallic, both RIMFIRE and CENTERFIRE and range from .22 to .405 and pistol cartridges. The OTHER outstanding part of this display is the LETTER that is glued to the back. It is a original STORE LETTERHEAD "L. SCHMIDT & SONS" -"Everything in HARDWARE-Grand Junction, Colorado". Someone then wrote in heavy blue caryon "Dummy Metallic Amunition-as per list mailed in with report" also "MAY 10-1922". Below written in lighter RED CRAYON "Sales Service-and a man's name A.Shuxxxd? (can't read the name clearly), the rest is very clear. Another possibility that has surfaced based on this letter, it that the WINCHESTER STORE in Grand Junction, Colo. sent a list back (of the cartridge they wanted on their board) to the Sales Service dept. of WRACo. and the factory make the board. Its very interesting-I just present the facts and you decide. A very, very rare piece regardless and minty. Photo's again shows the glare and lines from the srinkwrap, but this is in outstanding shape and a real conversation piece!$3375

(pfct)

This ca.1922 board is of the same type as the board listed directly above. Most probably made by the STORE itself, it differs slightly in its style, construction and condition. It is made on the same concept (all shells are mounted with a single braid through the center of the shell and the same type of small "WINCHESTER" ID tag is used. This board has 5 rows and the tags are attached to a board and the shells sit on top of that board. All 5 rows has spaces for 12 shells (total of 60) but 14 shells are missing. Interestingly this board has 3 WRACO FACTORY WINDOW SHELLS on the bottom row. The tags are not filled out and the green felt is on the back side/and mostly missing. I believe this shows again how each store would have differences in the shells that were SELLERS in their TRADE MARKET AREA and some did a much better construction job (or had WRACo. do it) These are the only two I have ever seen in 25 very active years of chasing WINCHESTER SHotgun shells and I think they add much to the history of the WINCHESTER STORES. Again the photo's show the glare and lines from the shippers srinkwrap.$1850

A very RARE and Important "WINCHESTER STORE" Bronze WINDOW SIGN. This was advertised to each WINCHESTER STORE as sign for their WINDOW or as a SHOW CASE or other INTERIOR DISPLAY. I believe this was from a WINCHESTER STORE in Pennsylvania, I have no other material from that store in my collection.

A quote from the WINCHESTER STORE CATALOG (1926/27-page 259). "MADE of solid monumental BRONZE with HIGH POLISHED border and letters. Your STORE name is made in LARGE LETTERS across the top of the sign in DIGNIFIED RUNTIC TYPE. (THE WINCHESTER STORE) is in smaller letter type beneath. SIZE of this #1446 sign is 2 3/4 inch HIGH x 19 3/4 inch LONG. The price for one was $13.90". This SIGN is in total ORIGINAL CONDITION with NO RESTORATION OF ANY KIND. You can see the FULL RED colors in the WINCHESTER NAME. I have shown the back side which has the the following letters deeply embeded in the BRONZE. "HIGHTON BRONZE-THE AOCOINE etc...... (I am not furnishing the remainder of this script to prevent anyone from making REPRODUCTIONS!

This was quite expensive (for its era) and I believe only a very few were even ordered. I have only seen less than a handfull in all my years of collecting and chasing these WINCHESTER STORE items, especially their STORE advertising! Some of them may have been the victim of WORLD WAR Scrap Drives, leaving even fewer to ulitmately surive. One of my TOP TEN PIECES from a Lifetime collection!

(pre.1907-I think, does not have red "W")-A genuine WINCHESTER WOOD CRATE INSERT. See "RARITIES" p.71. This is a PROJECT for someone! Has original string, has NOT had any restoration to date.$350

(pttp)

(ca.1910/11). This WRACo. DIECUT Floor Display is so Rare, that a complete version of it is NOT KNOWN TO EXIST! I have owned these two DIECUT WINGS since May, 1997 and have advertised for the intervening 15 years, trying to find the CENTER PIECE! I have never found it and with great reluctance I am sellling these remarkable HEAVY CARDBOARD WING pieces, so someone else can try to find the HOLY GRAIL! I say Heavy Cardboard because they are ALMOST 1/8 inch thick and in MINT CONDITION. There is NO STAINING, no tears, no fading, no nothing! This is not shown in any SPORTING COLLECTIBLES book, nor in any article, it is virutally unknown/undiscovered! It is undated and unsigned, althought to me it resembles the style of "FUETUES". The SHOTGUN appears to be a M-1897 (which is not featured in many Cardboard advertising). Since it after 1907 (see the red "W" and does not feature a Model-12, I belive it to be a 1910/11 vintage!). In typically WINCHESTER STYLE, the right wing features a corn field/with pumpkins on the ground and two setters on point (quail perhaps?), so this is for advertising SHOTGUNS and SHOTSHELLS. The LEFT WING shows a magnigicent ELK STAG and would promotes CENTER FIRE FIREARMS and AMMUNITION/CARTRIDGES. It would follow that the missing CENTER PIECE would advertise RIMFIRE, but this is only speculation on my part. I would love to hear from someone, who has seen the complete 3-peice set and perhaps has a newspaper or magazine ad that features this FLOOR MECHANDISING display. A REAL RARITY, not fully docutmented yet, so its a chase! These two WINGS are in MINTY Condition, are ALL ORIGINAL and have NO RESTORATION OF ANY KIND!$3000/pair

"The WINCHESTER STORE" 5-panel sets (for sale!)

(October 11, 2011)-I have decided to sell my complete LIFETIME (35 years) collection of WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel sets! This includes all my complete sets, partial sets, single panels and all WOODEN DISPLAY FRAMES! You can see most of these in the Winchester "RARITIES" book, I have about 97% of all those in the book, plus about (13) additional sets that are unpublished! Most are in MINT CONDITION with great colors and some are very rare, considering how fragile they are. Even with carefully handling they get the edges tattered and ripped and then destroyed! That's why those you see at the GUN SHOWS, FLEA MARKETS, etc. are always beat up, taped or almost never with all 5 panels together!

I have listed the Winchester Store 5-panel sets and any items that are for sale in the following order.

Non-published sets--Hunting/Gun related--Trap Shooting--Boy Scout, Thanksgiving, Christmas--WJRC-Jr.Trapshooting--Fishing Tackle--Oil, Grease, Rust Remover etc.--Paint and Varnish--Football--Basketball--Hockey, Ice SKates--Boxing--Golf--other SPORTS--Wagons--Scooter and Roller Skates--Vecocyle (tricycle)--Skies, Dumb bells, etc.--Brace & Bits--Padlocks--Screwdriver & Chisels--Saws--Wrenchs--Hammer and Hatchets--Vacuum Bottles--HouseHold Appliances--Cutlery & Pocket Knives--Razor and other Tiolet--Steel Goods--Cartoons/Comedy--Flashlights and Batteries--Wooden Display Frames--Covers/Envelopes.

(Note-I have listed most of the 5-panel sets in at least two different locations. Since most 5-panel sets advertise at least two or more different WINCHESTER STORE products (i.e. GUNS on one side and FLASHLIGHTS on the other side) I listed them in both categories. If there are any questions please call or email.

Just scrool down this page and these items will be there in that order.

1920-(Winchester 5-panel sets started March, 4, 1920-all were one-sided, until Sept.1920!

1923-(this year only, most 5-panels displayed a "Giant" center piece, that covers the center 3 panels!

1924-Only a very few new sets were produced!

1925-no known 5-panels set produced this year!

1926-5-panels set now produced only on a monthly basis!

1927-no known 5-panel sets produced this year!

1928-all 5-panel sets now have a CARTOON theme!

1929-WRACo. and "THE WINCHESTER STORES" stopped 5-panel sets in April, 1929!

UNPUBLISHED "WINCHESTER STORE-5-PANEL SETS"-(for sale!)

I ORIGINALLY had for sale (11)-Eleven, 5-panel WINCHESTER STORE sets (or partial sets) that are not shown in the Winchester "RARITIES" book. ONLY (6) Eight sets REMAIN! When working with Tommy and the Krause Co. editor, it was a joint agreement not to publish any 5-panel set if between us we only had a partial/incomplete set-(less than 5 panles. It also got to be a limiting factor in the absolute number of pages that we had to work with! ANYWAY, I now have these complete sets and some SINGLE PANELS that are unpublished!. These DO NOT appear in any other SPORTING COLLECTIBLES BOOK!

(Christmas-1922)-Another unpublished Winchester 5-panel set that (this is complete). This is NOT in the Winchester "RARIIES" book, I purchased this just after the book went to Press.

(side-#1)-Titled "CHRISTMAS DISPLAY"- shows a GIANT (3) center panel scene of a BIG RED SANTA and bag over-filled with Winchester gifts. It is indeed the most charming and sentimental of all the Winchester (5) panels and is a top "10" for sure. In the bag I see a very rare SCOOTER, M-90, Hockey Stick, Pocket Knife, Boxing Gloves, Plane, Basketball, two GOLD Scissors, full box of bits, a razor strop and a rare KITCHEN KNIVE SET.The only problem is this is so rare that only a few of the really dedicated Winchester advertising collectors know of its existence. The end panels are sometimes seen, they each show a long list of WINCHESTER STORE gift ideas, including some WJRC (Wincheser Junior Rifle Corp) items. I have only seen two complete sets of these and bought the only one I ever had a chance to purchase (it was from a private buyer and took 8 years to do the "DEAL".

(Side-#2)-Titled "ICE SKATE DISPLAY-shows a neat Winchester ICE SKATES on each panel, In MINTY condition. I am selling all my 5-panels, so here goes a rare one, that is not published in any SPORTING COLLECTIBLE book. Very, Very rare!

The famous red "WINCHESTER" in STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS is also across all three panels. Also shown are two CARPENTERS framing a house! Also note in red STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS-"AS GOOD AS THE GUN".

(side-#2/January)-Titled "AS GOOD AS THE GUN". THese 3 center panels show a GIANT Blue Oval with the famous Winchester LOGO (By Philip R. Goodwin) and the words "All-WINCHESTER-Products are-AS GOOD AS THE GUN-sold Exclusively-at-THE WINCHESTER STORE". There are many Winchester products surrounding the OVAL. I see a SAW, HAMMER, PLIERS, Flashlights, Cutlery, Meat Grinder, Skates and a BOYS WAGON. In total MINT condition, has no restoration of any kind. Very rare, I didn't see this until just last year, after collecting this panels for 30+ years. As noted would buy the END PANELS (they have TOOLS on them).

But no restoration of any type on any PANELS. Signed on both sides by "BRIGGS", who was a well known cartoonist in the '20's!

(Side-#1) Titled "RIFLES and AMMUNITION"-The center three individual panels feature a .401 Auto-loading RIFLE, a Model-95 and the best of all, a very desirable panel showing the "MODEL-94". Each end panel shows METALLIC AMMUNITION for these RIFLES and what is really rare (Ammunition for the Winchester Model-86).

The panel on BASKETBALL SUPPLIES, shows a BASKETBALL, BASKETBALL SHORTS and KNEE BRACE. Each of these panels has a very prominate "WINCHESTER" in red staggered script Letters at the top. Since this side can't be shown readily, I have furnished some pictures from the "RARITIES" book that give you a idea of that side. This is the set used for the "RARITIES" book, so you are looking at the real "thing"!

(side-#2)-Titled "SHOTGUNS and SHELLS"-this side is just as desirable if not more so, since it also has individual Panels, (again with the red "STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS" and (2) of the most popular Winchester SHOTGUNS ever produced-(a Model 12, a Model 97, and the only cutaway panel of a Model 12 that was ever used on a 5 panel set.

If you look hard you might find a individual panel of the guns, and even rarer you might find the center 3 panels, but to find a complete 5 panel set is truly rare, and they just don't come up for sale, the collectors keep them.

THis is another of my best conditioned 5-panel sets, its MINT on both sides, No restoration, just truly great piece. I currently have it mounted on White acid-free foam board with the GUN side facing out. I have pictures of the other side, it is MINT ALSO, but will ship it either on the foam board or just the panels themselves, your choice!

In the bag I see a very rare SCOOTER, M-90, Hockey Stick, Pocket Knife, Boxing Gloves, Plane, Basketball, two GOLD Scissors, full box of bits, a razor strop and a rare KITCHEN KNIVE SET.The only problem is this is so rare that only a few of the really dedicated Winchester advertising collectors know of its existence.

I upgraded most the items inside and the KIT/BOX several times to get this quality. THe paper work is very hard to find, including the correct SHOTGUN HAND TAG (the oldest and correct version). Has original KEY, the sticker is in excellent shape, all the rivits on the box are untouched (usually this box shows heavy wear, because it was carried into a field and got some ROUGH TREATMENT, and then was stored in poor enviorments (leaky attics or basements, the garage or barn) etc. The box of 500 WInchester CLAY TARGETs is most rare (and its full), ie. the replacement boxes of clay pigeons did not have the colorfull BLUE label with the Yellow House in the background!

In total ORIGINAL CONDTION, it has no restoration of ANY KIND! You just can't find the COMPLETE SET in this condition. This conbined with the (2) Winchester 5 panel sets that display this JR. TRAPSHOOTING KIT, make for one of the most outstanding display of ANY WINCHESTER COLLECTION. I would prefer to sell all three items as a single package, but it's not a deal breaker!

This MAGAZINE AD is better than most, it is from the Literary Digest-December 11, 1920. A very early ad for both the WJRC kit and Winchester JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT. Not normally featured together this CHRISTMAS ad has a great picture of the full contents of both kits and uses a WJRC picture of boys shooting on a INDOOR range (same scene as used on the 5 panel set). This is a very early ad, at the start of the campaign to sell these products-note the text DOES NOT REFER TO WINCHESTER STORES (yet). The ad itself is in MINT condition, mounted on white acid-free foam board and srink wrapped. A significant REFERENCE PIECE!$30

(ttc)

Another MAGAZINE AD that is better than most. It is also from the Literary Digest, December 6, 1919. Shows a picture of the complete contents of the WINCHESTER JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT, the MODEL 20, a man and women shooting and interestingly a picture of guys shooting off a Yacht!. Again there is no mention (yet) of going to a WINCHESTER STORE to buy this outfit. Its a very early ad and quite different.$25

(ttc)

The final MAGAZINE AD in this series of (3) is also from the Literary Digest of May 29, 1920. It shows a nice ad of two young men throwing/shooting with a full WINCHESTER JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT laying in the background. It also features a big display of the Model 20 itself, the clay targets and the .410 shells. Still no mention of going to a WINCHESTER STORE to buy the KIT. Interestingly it refers to the kit by the initals "W.J.T."-I don't remember seeing that used before (of after for that matter).$25

"Winchester Store-JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT"-5-panel sets" (for sale!)-only 2 versions ever made (1920 only!)-very rare!

-(May 27-June 2, 1920)-Titled "JUNIOR TRAP SHOOTING OUTFIT". This is a complete WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel set. It is the one shown in the Winchester "RARITIES" book on p.98. IF you look closely in the book, you can see that I sent these photo's in to the editor. This the same 5-panel shown in both of RON STADT's books. Book#1-"Winchester SHOTGUNS and SHOTSHELLS", Ronald W. Stadt, 1984-Armory Publications: Tacoma, page 83. The second book "Winchester SHOTGUNS and SHOTSHELLS", Ronald W.Stadt, 1995-Krause Publications, Iola, WI.-page 148. It is in the same black wood frame (and under glass) from when Ron had it. It is the only one I have ever seen-extremely rare!

When I sell my WINCHESTER JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT, I will also sell this 5-panel set. It is the only one known, its MINT, unrestored, no flaws of any kind, the colors are OUTSTANDING! It has been behind glass for 25+ years. It is the first year (1920), so it is 1-sided and the only 5-panel dedicated solely to the Winchester TRAPSHOOTING KIT (Outfit). It is extremely rare, because there were not many WINCHESTER STORES in May, 1920 (maybe 7/10 stores total). So the "pool" of these that were ever produced was very small and then the survival rate must have been very high! in fact it is the 12 th, or 13 th. panel set that the Winchester SALES SERVICE department had ever sent! I have a signed and dated letter from Ron for provenance. In fact I bought this from Ron many years ago. Its the very best you can get in this collectible! IT RARE! ITS STONE MINT! and HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE! I have had a most complete collection of WINCHESTER STORE 5-panel sets and this is the single most RARE and at the same time BEST CONDITIONED one of the ALL!

There are only (3) Winchester Store 5-panel sets that show the JUNIOR TRAPSHOOTING KIT, including a Winchester Model-20 shotgun.

tim@thewinchesterstore.com
Phone: (316) 634-1877

A genuine, untouched, non-restored WINCHESTER FOOTBALL-sold only during "THE WINCHESTER STORE" era 1920/1930. This double stiched, pebble grain SHEEP SKIN LEATHER football was sold for ONE MONTH ONLY, in September, 1922 as a special Promotion. It can be seen in the Sales Service Bulletin Sept.7-13, 1922, but does not appear in any of the regular "TWS" catalogs.

As you can imagine, this is very rare, I have seen less than a dozen in my years of collecting all kinds of WINCHESTER Sports items. This is the only SEPTEMBER SPECIAL that I have ever seen, it has been in my collection since 1994!. It has a especially clear mark "Winchester-trade mark-MADE in U.S.A-SEPTEMBER-SPECIAL", in quite remarkable overall condition, since this is right in the center of the ball. I have never touched this ball, it is stuffed with some kind of foam rubber padding material (not well done at all, and if it was carefully redone this would really improve its appearance. This ball has been used (probably on a sandlot which would have been typical of that time) and its shows wear. I have tried to show all four panels and both ends. The ends show the most wear, from hiking the ball repeatedly. The ball could be restuffed and perhaps the leather reconditioned, but I leave that to the new owner. The leather itself is in excellant shape, it has not gotten stiff, flaked or dried out, like you see on most leather balls that are almost 100 years old and used by KIDS in less than ideal conditions. I am selling this one, and that leaves me with only ONE LEFT in my lifetime collection! It has been years since I have seen one for sale, Much rarer that anything you see on EBAY or in a Auction!

-I have for sale a (ca.1929) LOUISVILLE SLUGGER baseball BAT rack that holds 18 bats on each side and at the top the Black wooden/gold lettered, double sided SIGN reads (in a large oval-"LOUISVILLE SLUGGER-HILLERICK & BRADSBY Co.-Louisville, Ky."). Underneath that oval on a single line it reads "LOUISVILLE SLUGGER" and the bottom two lines read "USED and ENDORSED by the-BATTING HEROES of all AGES".

(ca.1922)-Selling my entire Winchester Bat collection. Includes at least one of every MODEL, including the very rare EARLY EDITIONS.

These two (2) bats are actually the earlist WRACo. produced bats! The Winchester Repeating Arms Co. merged with SIMMONS HARDWARE in 1922 and in that deal came ownership of "ROANOKE SPOKE and WHEEL CO." This company continued to produce bats for Winchester ie. THE WINCHESTER STORES until the plant burned down in 1925, at which time the production was moved the the WRACo. plant in New Haven, Conn.

The first bat shown is ("BR 120A--Babe Ruth), the second is ("BK 120A xxx"). The "A" stands for "HIGHEST QUAILITY", the "B" for "SECOND QUALITY" and "C" for "THIRD QUALITY". These bats appear only in the 1922 "Winchester SPRING ATHLETIC GOODS" catalog, which I think was the only year of production. These are very scarce and seldom seen!.

I have all FIVE PANELS, but MY MISTAKE I missed taking a picture of ONE SIDE of ONE PANEL. THen it was packed away and I couldn't get to it easily. MY BAD! I do have this complete set. It is has some tape down the extreme right edge and some minor missing portion (on the lower right corner). The pictures show this, but note the price, I am selling it cheap! The color are bright, etc. so it makes a good display.

"Winchester Store" SPORTS CLOTHING and Advertising-(for sale!)

(GOLF-"The WINCHESTER Store")--A very RARE "WINCHESTER STORE" GOLF DISPLAY/MERCHANDISING FLOOR STAND! This holds 48 clubs and is in TOTALLY ORIGINAL MINT Condition, with NO RESTORATION of ANY KIND! The TWO "WINCHESTER STORE" decals are fully intact and this item is guarrented to be what it is represented to be!

It is the only one I have ever seen in my 35 years of chasing WINCHESTER STORE items (especially SPORTS items). I missed my first opportunity to get it and finally made a TRADE/CASH deal to obtain the seriously RARE ITEM. Years ago I heard from one guy that perhaps another existed, but no pictures, no other information has ever shown up! If its "OUT THERE" it is truly buried in someones collection, and I would suspect its not in a Winchester collectors hands.

I have furnished many pictures (if you need more or perhaps some that are clearier, or from a different angle), please let me know. I love the WINCHESTER STORE stuff, but my photograher skills are limited! As you can see it has all ORIGINAL material, wood, rubber mats and LEATHER holders .These holders are amazingly ALL INTACT, NO splits, and all the original "BUTTONS" that allow the holders to move are there-(none of these fairly FRAGILE items show any wear), which I think is quite a feat! You can see the complete construction of the STAND and I have shown some pictures with WINCHESTER GOLF clubs in place, (as they would have been shown on the floor of a WINCHESTER STORE some 95 years ago!

I was an intense collector of all types of WINCHESTER STORE paper (any type of catalog, brochure, flyer, advertising etc.). One of the reasons I went to that detail was-(I originally wanted to write a complete definitive book on the WINCHESTER STORES, but age caught up with me and that amibiton died.) All that PAPER MATERIAL was complied so that I could identify all the WINCHESTER STORE items and to learn how to spot the "FAKES". I say all this to let you know that I accumlated all the known material including all the (fairly rare) catalogs with the various "BRANDS of WINCHESTER GOLF CLUBS". But Never a picture or mention of this GOLF DISPLAY STAND! Based on my experience I am surmising that this RARE STAND, never was in a Retail "WINCHESTER STORE" but instead, set up for display in the WRACo. factory (or perhaps on the second floor of the famous WINCHESTER STORE in N.Y.C.

When you review the early history of the WINCHESTER STORES, they initially set up a full MOCK-UP model of the proposed store (in the Factory at NEW HAVEN and it was fully stocked-(for employee education)! No one knows just how long this lasted, but this is one of my conclusions as to why the SPECIAL FLOOR display was built.

If you follow the normal MERCHANDISING PLan that WINCHESTER used with its stores, they would make a "PACKAGE DEAL/OFFERING" to the stores to encourge VOLUME buying. I.E. buy one of each model/color/size and a very attractive free display would be included. These displays are now quite rare and highly sought after! The price for these packages were a substantial amount for an individual store and hense not many were purchased and even fewer survived. SINCE NO LISTINGS or PICTURES of the GOLF DISPLAY have ever been found I do NOT THINK this was done for GOLF CLUBS!

I DO BELIEVE that the most plasible explanation is that it was a SPECIAL (one-off type of thing) for the NYC store. Winchester was in fierce comptetion with the other LEADING SPORTING STORES of its time and they went to great lengths to have the best available merchandise for this very attractive market (remember NO TV at this time and good HUNTING/FISHING etc was more available and it was almost "the expected thing to do". A couple of years ago I sold a LETTER that was addressed to prospective WINCHESTER SPORTING CUSTOMERS (a direct mail piece) that INVITED the LETTER HOLDER to the UPPER FLOOR of the NYC STORE for a demonstration of the GOLF CLUBS and LESSONS (an indoor room). This must have been something very special and it must not have lasted very long as this notice is rarely seen. I sold it on EBAY never thinking I would sell this display and now I wish now I still had it.

ANYWAY, that is all I know about this very rare item, I would welcome anyone with additional information or material. SO in this TOTALLY UNRESTORED condition and I am now selling one of the RARIEST items form my LIFETIME COLLECTION!

"Winchester Store-"CARTOON-COMEDY"-5 panel sets for sale!)

Starting in 1928, THE WINCHESTER STORE " (Sales Service dept. changed the format of their 5-panel advertising to concentrate on a all CARTOON or COMEDY theme to help sell their HARDWARE MERCHANDISE. This was "in tune" with these popular venues of that era. This continued briefly into 1929, until the entire process was terminated! I have most, but not all of these HIGHLY DESIRABLE 5-panel sets and will sell all.

In 1928 the panels had a "CHAIN" around ALL the EDGES, and "The Winchester Store" in a oval, ususally at both the top and bottom. In addition each END PANEL had a red "Winchester" in STAGGERED SCRIPT LETTERS at the top.

"WINCHESTER"-Envelopes-a.k.a."Covers-FACTORY LETTERHEADS-other Correspondence"-1882/1940-(for sale!)

a rare piece of HISTORY. Dated 6-15-28 Order No. (blanked out) KG-38441, this is a Engr. Drawing for the not very well known GAS REFRIGERATING Machine. WRACo. was trying to introduce to the market place. This was a "NEW" Appliance but it proved to be too expensive. I have a brochure that shows a picture of it-I think very rare. It appears that a very limited number actually made it to the public and then the venture folded, I have never acutally seen the machine itself. This is what proved to be the final KILL OF Wraco., they spent too much money in a desperate attempt to stay alive and they just ran out of capital. THis drawing is a CYCLE CONTROL BODY BOLT and Winchester is crossed out and NATIONAL REFRIGERATING Co. written above that line. A Historical piece-mounted on white acid-free foam board and srinkwraped.

I also have similar drawings (marked "Winchester" for the more common "WINCHESTER WHIRDRY WASHING MACHINE" I have several (all different), will give BULK discount!

"Winchester WOOD SHOTSHELL CRATES"-(for sale!)

unless otherwise noted these are the very best from my lifetime collection of HEAVY HAND-MADE dovetail wooden shotshell shipping crates!

"WINCHESTER-STAR-EXTRA QUALITY"

If you own this you have one of just a handfull known to exist.! I have two wood crates that have the Winchester EXTRA QUALITY paper label glued to the side and own 3 other 25 round boxes. These are the TOP PRIZE in anybody's collection. Most of the Black print from the ends is gone, but the deeply marked handstamp remains 9.14.89 (Sept., 14 1889). This is also unique in that the original shipping address is stencilled on both of the SIDE PANELS "Louis ERKADT-Sporting Goods-Atchinson, KAN.", and then they applied the shotshell box PAPER LABEL over that. Must have been very time consuming and not very efficient. Believed to have been dropped after a short time (perhaps this run of EXTRA QUALITY boxes) as no other examples of any other Winchester wood crate which are addressed in this fashion! A Tremendous box, has some issues but they don't over-rule the scaricty and rarity of this crate! This WOOD BOX is TOTALLY ORIGINAL, with no RESTORATION OF ANY KIND!$450
