    Description

    1913-14 Baseball World Tour Ephemera.
    The famous international barnstorming partnership between the Chicago White Sox and New York Giants showcased the best of the Dead Ball Era for a global audience, but today relics from that excursion are exceedingly rare. Here we provide an intriguing assortment thereof: 1-2) Two different printed itineraries of White Sox journey from Chicago to California, each packed with photographs and biographies of the players and team owner Charles Comiskey. 3) Menu for banquet hosted by Sir Thomas Lipton (of tea fame), signed by Lipton in 10/10 pencil. 4) Buck Weaver's personal dinner menu for return voyage on R.M.S. Lusitania, which would be famously torpedoed a year later, killing 1200. 5) 1923 transatlantic passenger list, apparently unrelated to that year's Tour as no recognizable baseball names appear.
