This Just In: 1950s Cavalier C51A Coca-Cola Machine

Jan 23, 2017

We’ve just brought the sweetest vintage Coca-Cola machine we have ever found to our booth D-5 at Old Glory Antique Marketplace in Frederick, Maryland. The C51A Coca-Cola machine is in excellent working order! We purchased it from a huge Coca-Cola collector who let go of his entire collection to us last weekend.) The owner used this machine until the day we put it on our truck. We’re asking $5,600 but are always open to reasonable offers. A few minor scratches here and there and a few screws on the back panel fell off and disappeared while we were moving it but overall this is a gorgeous machine. Visit Old Glory seven days a week and ask the staff to call us if you’d like to make an offer. You can also contact us ahead...

Old baseball photos launch trip down memory lane

Feb 10, 2016

I can’t help but get a little nostalgic every time I run into baseball memorabilia from yesteryear. I’m transported back to Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium, where I watched baseball’s real home run king, Hank Aaron, swat balls out of the park. I was six years old then. I sat breathless in the same stadium at age nine when Atlanta Braves’ reliever Gene Garber struck out Pete Rose and stopped his consecutive games hitting streak at 44. The six old five-inch by seven-inch black and white photographs of baseball players from the 1930s and 1940s we just turned up is what punched my ticket to my latest stroll down memory lane. I stumbled across them in a random box of old photographs we bought from a woman who inherited the stuff. The American League Service Bureau...
