    Circa 1920 Spalding Guide Retail Display Rack. The Spalding Guide has been required reading for baseball fanatics for nearly fourteen decades now, so the offered relic, which we believe to derive from the closing years of the Dead Ball Era, is certain to find a wide bidding audience. Though the annual periodicals provide no shortage of intrigue for the hobby intellectuals, they trail other subgenres in their ability to materialize into a powerful aesthetic display.

    We're thrilled at the opportunity to remedy that shortcoming with this period display rack, custom-made by the good folks at Spalding to showcase their guides to a retail audience. We suspect that there may have been some restoration of the top portion of the display, but if it was updated, that alteration appears to be many decades old. You'll also note diagonal cracks at each bottom corner of the marquee, but they could be easily filled if desired, or simply left as is--structurally, the relic remains strong. Full dimensions are 32x34x8".
