    Description

    1912 Detroit Tigers Word's Base Ball Album and Sketch Book. Rare early softcover volume dates to the inaugural season of Navin Field and was likely distributed on its grounds. The contents include the schedule for the Tigers season and a two-page photographic and biographic spread for each member of the club, including Hall of Famers Ty Cobb, Hughie Jennings and Wahoo Sam Crawford. Condition is remarkably fine, with no creases or tears, only very minor wear to the cover from a century of storage. Certainly the finest surviving example, if not the only one.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
