1915 Home Run Baker photo...
Item # 680338
February 17, 1915
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Feb. 17, 1915
* John Franklin "Home Run" Baker photograph
* Philadelphia Athletics - MLB baseball retirement ?
The top of page 8 has a two column photo with heading: "'Home Run' Baker Quits; Mack Loses Great Star" with text. (see) Baker would retire for the 1915 season but would come back in 1916 to play for the New York Yankees. Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 12 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, generally nice.
