This promotional production—a supplement to The Sporting News—spanned five years starting with the July 22nd, 1909 issue. Initially issued in a 7-1/2" x 10" size, eventually the dimensions grew to about 8-1/2" x 10." Here's an example depicting Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. It measures 7-1/2" x 10" and reads "Supplement to The Sporting News St. Louis Aug. 5, 1909" along the top edge. The edge and corners show mild wear, a tiny tear is visible off the top edge, and there is a very light center vertical wrinkle. The back reveals a tiny piece of clear tape adhered near the left edge and a tiny area of paper loss near the right edge. Overall EX presentation quality.
