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

Collection of 16 Reach and Spalding guides spanning the years 1899 to 1939. These guides are filled with photographs and team composites, in addition to voluminous statistics and information about the previous season. Many consider these annuals to represent the best value in all of vintage baseball collecting. 1) Spalding's Official Baseball Guide: 1908 (Record), 1910, 1911, 1912 (Hardbound copy presented to Roger Bresnahan. The cover has "Roger Bresnahan" embossed in gold lettering), 1913, 1916, 1923, 1924, 1927, 1927 (The Little Red Book), 1932, 1934, 1936, 1939. General wear on the edges and spine, otherwise in Excellent condition. 2) Reach's Official Baseball Guide: 1899 (Vg-Ex/Ex due to a couple of very tiny chips to the spine and back cover, otherwise Ex; the cover stock to pre-1900 Reach guides is far more brittle than in later years), and 1908. Covers are all complete and intact. Nice looking group with a little general cover wear, as is usually the case with early guides. The collection is in Vg-Ex condition overall. Total 16 guides. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,624.00
