Yep, I saw it...it was on an ebay live auction about 2 months ago so this seller flipped this immediately. I also noticed they flipped an 1892 Columbus cabinet photo and an old Southern League photo too...they made good money on all of them.

Auction went out of my league even before it really started...

Lew Lipset sold a volume with a about 50 issues from 1885 about a year ago.


Two things: 1. Note the "Gold Coin" ads in the images!

2. The paper is very brittle at the edges. Does anyone know if one can "restore/rehabilitate" these pages so that you could turn a page and not have a part fall off?

I am wondering if this was ever part of the Steve Cummings collection. Barry, do you recall? I know Steve had a number of great early periodicals, but can't recall on this one.

What's great about this publication is that it was virtually a baseball DAILY!!
They've had baseball dailies in Japan, but does anyone know if this the only such
publication here in the USA?

Also note that the buyer is Tim Hughes, the great newspaper purveyor. Let's hope he has a buyer for the volume and doesn't chop it up.

btw, the Lipset volume: http://oldjudge.com/archive/200611/base ... ations/30/
