Description

    1913-14 Baseball World Tour Book. Without question the most intriguing and comprehensive visual record of the famous Baseball World Tour, the brainchild of Chicago White Sox owner and Hall of Famer Charles Comiskey, whose team was joined by the New York Giants on a three month jaunt through twenty-seven US cities and thirteen countries from Australia to Egypt to England. The book opens with the complete schedule and game results but quickly changes gears to reveal dozens upon dozens of photos snapped on this historic tour intended to spread the gospel of baseball to the four corners. Legends from John McGraw to Tris Speaker to Jim Thorpe are pictured, with shots from the ballfield to the high seas to early cityscapes of Tokyo and the ruins of Pompeii. The softcover volume remains complete and tightly bound, with wear at the spine and page edges, and some paper loss and writing upon the covers, causing no major concern. A genuinely fascinating publication which must be seen, but more preferably, owned.
