My sister has found a complete set of 1977 All Star cans that were never molded into cans.. Just flat sheets with info on them. Can you tell us how much they are valued at? 

The value of an item is determined by supply and demand. Even in this unique state of not being "molded into cans" there is not much of a market for them. I have received quite a few inquiries of people who are in the possession of the "Flat" cans. There must have been a lot of people who worked at the plant that had the same idea. I have also seen a few show up on eBay, and they do not sell for much more than the price of the can. The flat cans are more of a novelty.

The cans sell between $2.-$10. depending on the player. The whole collection is worth about $100. Common flaws include Dents, and rust. Visit the following page for more information including a full check list of the 70 can set: 1977 Royal Crown Cola cans

I have two very old squares of felt with a nice color printing of an infield, one has a picture of Tesreau pitching and the other is Doyle batting. What do I have?

What you have are "1914 Felt Blankets" also known as B18 Blankets. They measure about 5 1/2" square, and pictures an infield surrounded by base paths with a centered player, and two pennants. The set features 10 teams, and a total of 90 players.

They were issued by several tobacco companies of the day folded into fourths and fastened to a tobacco product. People would take the felts and sew them together to make a large blanket out of them. Sometimes these square felts will show up with tape or glue marks from being attached to the tobacco product or with stitching holes along the boarder being disassembled from a blanket someone has made.

Prices for these felt blankets are pretty unstable. Sometimes I see them sell surprisingly low, and sometimes surprisingly high. In excellent condition for the two (common) players you have, Doyle, and Tesreau figure about $25.-$35. HOF players could sell as High as $1,000.-$1,500. Ty Cobb could top out at $6,000.

Prices also vary on the color scheme for each player. You may find more information, and a price guide on the following page of this website: 1914 Felt Blankets

What is the value of a 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Ring owned by an employee?

The value of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Ring could be valued in the $10,000. -$15,000. price range more or less depending on a number of factors.

The key to the value of the ring will rely on who did the ring belong to, and having a letter of provenance showing the chain of custody from the person that was issued the ring, to the person who currently owns it. If you can show documentation that the ring was owned and issued to an employee of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers the Ring will have higher value. Proof of ownership as well as proof that the person was employed by the Brooklyn Dodgers, and was issued the ring.

Without any documentation of its authenticity as such the value of the ring will be determined by the value as a piece of jewelry, and not as a 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Ring belonging to any member of the organization. A ring that could be attributed to a player will sell for more than a ring that was issued to a team official or employee. The higher the ranking official or employee the higher the value. Salesman samples, and extra rings made up for gifts, or as replacements for lost or stolen rings would be at the lowest value.

In a couple of past auctions a 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Ring owned by the P.A. announcer "Tex" Rickard sold for $29,694.98 Another 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series Ring owned by Johnny Podres sold for $50,932.37
