Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
In the summer of 1909, the Boston Sunday Herald provided supplemental photos featuring players, individually, from the city's two Major League franchises. Each Sunday there appeared one from each team, and these premium supplements were sequentially numbered above their caption boxes. The captions provided the date, team, player and his position. These numbers were assigned, ascendingly, by the week of publication. (By example, there were two #3's - one for each team.) These were hand-cut from that newspaper, so their dimensions are not uniform, but deviate little from 9-1/2" x 7-1/4". Had Burdick known of these, he would have catalogued them as an "M" issue. Their technical condition is about FR to VG, with image quality more favorable than those levels indicate. Includes: 6/06/09 #1 Bowerman and Gessler, 6/13/09 #2 Tris Speaker and Beaumont; 6/27/09 #3 Lord and Sweeney, 7/11/09 #6 Stahl/Autry, still attached; 7/18/09 #7 Bates and Harry Hooper.
