1920 to 1937 Baseball Magazine Collection (66)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,624.00

For over fifty years, Baseball Magazine was the voice of the National Pastime, documenting every nuance of the game and its history in word and photographs. Today, Baseball Magazine is no longer published, but old issues open a window to baseball history that is perhaps unrivaled; and collectors appreciate past issues both for research as well as for the tremendous display value of their classic covers. This very substantial Baseball Magazine collection includes sixty-six issues (sixty-five different and one duplicate) and spans seventeen years of baseball history. Half of the magazines range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex and half are in overall Very Good condition. Many feature the game's greatest stars on their covers (we have listed a few particularly significant covers, but the collection includes many, many stars on covers not listed as well). 1920: One issue, Dec. w/Speaker. 1921: Four issues, including Mar. w/Sisler. 1922: Three issues, including Dec. w/Huggins and McGraw. 1923: Three issues, including Dec. w/Ruth and Ruppert. 1924: Four issues, including Feb. w/Roush, Dec. w/McGraw and Harris. 1925: Seven issues, including Mar. w/Hornsby, Aug. w/Frisch and Wheat, Dec. w/McKechnie and Harris. 1926: Two issues, including Aug. w/Sisler and E.
