    Description

    Late '10's to Early '20's Baseball Album with News Articles and Zeenut Cards - Some Fascinating Reading. Offered is a fascinating vintage album with dozens and dozens of cut out baseball newspaper articles and box scores from the late-1910's to early 1920's. Many articles are about Ruth from the earliest years of his career and his relationship with Cobb and so much more. There is one about Carl Mays pitching the fatal ball, Ruth contract holdout (for $20,000) and much more. Also inside are hundreds or cards including a dozen E254s but mostly Zeenut cards. There are cards from 1915 Zeenut (9 cards); 1916 Zeenut (40+ cards); 1917 Zeenut (20+ cards); 1918 Zeenut (90+ cards); 1919 Zeenut (90+ cards); 1920 Zeenut (100+ cards) and 1921 Zeenut (125+ cards). Some highlights include a 1919 Dazzy Vance and Fatty Arbuckle, 1921 O'Doul, 1917 Mensor and Frank Chance. Almost all cards are securely glued to the album pages. Cards appear to be I PR to EX condition and seem to be in a range of sizes. There are no Zeenut coupons intact. The album measures 7" x x10" and is approx. 2-1/2" thick. Covers, pages and spine are in poor condition, all pages or spreads are loose.
