Description

Vintage ephemeron is exceptionally rare in high grade as paper deteriorates rapidly in the elements. Offered is a child’s notebook featuring the Christian Gentleman, Christy Mathewson. The 87-page notebook exhibits considerable wear along the spine with slight paper loss in the upper left corner. The front displays the photo of Mathewson in a pitching pose with a second photograph of a crowd of avid fans. The cover is attached to the core book and the individual pages have been written upon with what seems to be spelling lists. The reverse of the notebook displays a trio of children looking through peepholes in an attempt to catch a glimpse of the great right-hander. The 7” x 8-1/4” book is a seldom seen item in overall VG condition that will draw much attention from vintage collectors.
