Collection of Four “Sporting News” Supplements

Out of stock

SKU: 21736 Category:


In the continuum spanning April 22, 1899 through October 20, 1900, “The Sporting News” furnished readers with vignetted photo portraits of individual major league ballplayers. This promotion, today catalogued M101-1, ultimately featured 62 different celebrities of the diamond. The medium for these was a semi-glossy stock measuring 8 3/4″ x 11″, and they even provided brief bios on their reverses. From that issue, we offer a group of four different. All of these are characterized by two small mounting holes toward the upper margins – none encroaching on the title. Specifically, these include: Elmer Flick (Nov. 11, ’99) – two mild vertical creases, minor soiling toward lower right; Ginger Beaumont (April 28, 1900) – minor corner dam.; Heinie Peitz (June 9, 1900) – light vertical crease; and Bill Dahlen (August 11, 1900) – mild creases.
