Given the patent date, Kollmorgen proved quite the soothsayer, as the Tigers went on to win the 1935 World Series in which Bridges notched two complete-game victories. Kollmorgen later obtained contracts from an additional five Major Leaguers, but with materials scarce during World War II, no additional games were made.
This relic is fully functional and shows amazing preservation, with less-than-normal wear and tear for an item of its age. One original ball bearing is included (along with several new replacement ball bearings), but easy-to-find agate marbles of the same size would also work well. I have seen only 1 other listing comparable to this one in the last several years; probably 2011.I judge it to be extremely rare. Please refer to the several photographs included, as they will help you judge the overall condition.
