    1918-39 BBWAA Season Pass Lot of 20 Issued to Francis J. Powers. In a career that spanned most of the major Midwestern cities Francis J. Powers covered some of the finest sporting events the world has ever seen. The sportswriter is credited with minting Elroy Hirsch as "Crazylegs" and also recorded a famed interview with former Chicago Cubs pitcher Charlie Root who surrendered what many believe to be Babe Ruth's called shot.

    Lot includes twenty Baseball Writers Association of America passes issued to Powers from the following seasons, each encapsulated by PSA with corresponding grades listed in parentheses: 1918 (EX 5), 1921 (VG-EX 4), 1922 (GD 2), 1923 (Auth.), 1924 (VG 3), 1925 (FR 1.5), 1926 (FR 1.5), 1927 (VG 3), 1928 (VG-EX 4), 1929 (VG-EX 4), 1930 (EX-MT 6), 1931 (EX 5), 1932 (Auth.), 1933 (VG-EX 4), 1934 (EX 5), 1935 (Auth.), 1936 (EX-MT 6), 1937 (EX 5), 1938 (NM 7), and 1939 (EX-MT 6).
