Victor / Overman Wheel Company Sporting goods catalog
« on: January 25, 2019, 08:16:12 PM »
Does anyone have an Overman Wheel Company / Victor Sporting goods catalog (not bicycles) from 1893 - 1894?  I am trying to figure out if they were offering basketballs in 1893 or 1894 in their catalogs.  The earliest Victor catalog that I have is 1898 which is after they sold off their Sporting Goods Division.
Thank you!

Try the Chicopee Historical Society. Also, many major universities hold vast holdings of original material like periodicals, catalogs, etc. Then there is the Library of Congress and the National Archives......

Could you post a photo of a Overman Wheel Sporting Goods Catalog?
I understand Overman manufactured many sporting good items.
I have the following items:
Juggling pins
Baseball bat and mitt
Hockey face mask
Golf Clubs

What other "goods" were offered?

    Not really sure, but they may have also produced pool water related goods. Such as snorkels, scuba fins and masks.
