Giants (5): 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, and 1960. Cubs (1): 1959 (Press-TV-Radio Roster Book). Cardinals (4): 1957, 1958, 1959, and 1960. Phillies (2): 1950 and 1958. Reds (3): 1958, 1959, 1960. Braves (3): 1958, 1959, and 1960. Yankees (1): 1965 Senators (4): 1957, 1958, 1959, and 1960. Red Sox (4): 1957, 1958, 1959, and 1960. Indians (4): 1949, 1956, 1957, and 1959 White Sox (2): 1957 and 1958. Orioles (6): 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, and 1969. Athletics (1): 1959 (second edition). Nearly all of the yearbooks have a small piece of tape applied to the top and bottom edges of the spine (reason unknown; not in repair of any tears; possibly just for support); otherwise the books range from Vg to Ex, averaging Vg-Ex. This is a very attractive group of early baseball yearbooks and one of the most diverse such collections we have ever offered. Total: 50 yearsbooks. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
