Lot # 1217 (of 1673)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Who's Who In Baseball Near-Complete Collection (1917-1954)

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $1,527.50

Near-complete run of thirty-six Who's Who in Baseball issues spanning the years 1917 through 1954. Every issue is represented during that span with the exception of the years 1919 and 1920. Issued annually by the publishers of Baseball Magazine , Who's Who in Baseball was a digest-sized publication (4.75 x 6.25 inches) that provided the yearly statistics for many of the players in the American and National Leagues. In addition to providing hard-to-find minor league statistics for all of the Major League stars, the publications are extremely popular with collectors today for their great display value, as the striking cover of each features a photo or colorful illustration of one of the top stars. Included on the covers of the issues offered here are legends such as Tris Speaker (1917), Babe Ruth (1921), Walter Johnson (1924), Hank Greenberg (1936), Lou Gehrig (1937), Jimmie Foxx (1939), Joe DiMaggio (1942), Ted Williams (1943), and Stan Musial (1944). Both the 1917 (tape repair on spine) and 1921 (creases and light staining) issues are in Very Good condition, while the remainder range in grade from Vg-Ex to Ex-Mt. Total: 36 books. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,527.50
