The offered lot consists of (16) various baseball yearbooks and significant programs. The vast majority of the contents are from the 1950s, though two older pieces have found their way into the lot. Each publication remains complete, though wear is visible to varying degrees. The lot contains four programs, including a 1925 Giants at Cubs program featuring Lindstrom, Terry and Maranville and a 1946 Dodgers at Braves program with Spahn and Reese as well as Braves World Series programs from both 1957 and 1958, both against the famed Yankees. The remaining pieces are each team yearbooks, consisting of Milwaukee Braves examples from 1954 and 1956, Phillies examples from 1954, 1957 and 1958 Pirates examples from 1956 and 1957, 1955 Cubs, 1957 Tigers, 1957 Cardinals, 1958 Red Sox and 1958 Reds. Please visit our website for more information about this particular lot.
The 1925 Cubs program shows a very solid exterior with just minor edge wear and toning. The middle scorecard will show a tear along the spine, though the page remains bound nonetheless. Unscored with a clean interior.
The 1946 Braves program is also clean and complete, with a superior appearance. A keen eye will notice an occasional small edge tear, but otherwise a very appealing program.
Both the 1957 and 1958 World Series programs are in similar shape. The covers are untoned with bold colors, though apparent reference marks are visible. The 1957 has an unused scorecard while the 1958 example has had the lineup neatly marked without the actual scoring of the game.
The standard issued team yearbooks are also in similar condition, exhibiting just varying degrees of minor edge and spine wear. The covers tend to be clean with bold colors and great logos. Interiors are loaded with pictures and information, with an occasional reference mark adding some information.
