Terrific baseball centerfold print: "Thrown Out On Second" ...
Item # 175220
September 10, 1887
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, September 10, 1887
The full ftpg. is a Zogbaum print: "Mars & Venus at Fortress Monroe". A full page has many scenes of Castine captioned: "An Old Maine; Seaport". Another full page has 6 prints of: "The Annual Meet of the American Canoe Association".
But by far the best print in this issue is the terrific double page centerfold captioned: "Thrown Out On Second" which is a great view of a baseball play in progress, a much closer view of game action than is typically found. This print measures about 14 by 20 inches from border to border, plus borders.
Other news and advertisements of the day are included. Complete in 16 pages, and in very nice condition. Small binding holes (head of a pin) through the centerfold are to be expected.
