Description

    1892-93 Cleveland Spiders Team Composite Premiums Lot of 2. One of the key early baseball teams in the 1890's was the Cleveland Spiders. Playing between 1887 and 1899, perhaps their biggest claim to fame was in signing pitching phenom Cy Young in 1891. This lot of two advertising premiums features team composite photo images of the team from 1892 and 1893. Interestingly, Young was not on the 1892 composite, despite being the best player on the team with a 36-12 record and 1.93 ERA. The image does include Jesse Burkett, but fellow HOFer John Clarkson is strangely missing. The 1893 premium features Young at top center, Clarkson, Burkett and another HOFer in Buck Ewing.

    Both premiums are on thin, brittle cardboard and are in Poor condition. Large chunks are missing from the corners and edges, and creases and tears are throughout. However, finding these in any condition is truly rare and the scarcity trumps the condition. In higher grade, these could easily fetch five figures. Each measures approximately 12x13."
