Description

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.
