    Description

    1902 Pittsburgh Pirates Spring Training Tour Program from Honus Wagner Estate. A signed letter of provenance from Leslie Wagner Blair attributes original ownership of this important and exceedingly rare booklet to her Hall of Fame grandfather, who outpaced all National Leaguers in runs batted in (126) and base thefts (49) while leading his band of Bucs to the pennant. This flawlessly preserved booklet was printed in anticipation of the "Spring Training Tour, Pittsburgh Base Ball Club, 1902," picturing a gorgeous Championship trophy on the cover and opening to reveal first an itinerary of the journey and then a marvelous photographic composite on paper of the team at center. A roster fills the next page, with rear cover a tip of the cap to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad responsible for the trip. Truly remarkable NRMT condition, complete with original binding ribbons. And it belonged to Honus Wagner! Letter of provenance from Wagner's granddaughter.
