2 Rare Issues of “Weekly Baseball Guide” from 1925.

Lot 7. 2 Rare Issues of “Weekly Baseball Guide” from 1925. This enterprising tabloid attracted some of the nation’s best sportswriters – Frederick G. Lieb, Frank F. O’Neill and Damon Runyon, for example. Lank Leonard, who was just beginning his career, was the cartoonist. Later, he created the “Mickey Finn” cartoon strip, which ran in newspapers from 1936-76. Unfortunately, the publication lasted for less than one year. Few issues seem to have survived. Offered here are the editions from July 25 and Aug. 31, 1925. Each contains 24 pages of articles, photos and box scores. Each is approximately 11.5” x 16.25”, and folded vertically. The pages are brittle. The July issue has an editorial mentioning Babe Ruth, and another critical of players it brands “outlaws” – Chick Gandil, Buck Weaver and Hal Chase. Stanley Coveleskie, Wallie Pipp and Riggs Stephenson are pictured. Almost all of the pages are torn about 3” along the fold. The Aug. issue has a 2.75” chip along the spine. Most pages have a 1” tear on the fold; a few tears are longer. The Pittsburgh Pirates receive extensive coverage in articles by Lieb and Charles J. Doyle. An editorial pays tribute to Ty Cobb. Photos show Eddie Collins, Ted Lyons, Bill Sherdel and Carl Hubbell. These are important publications for collectors who appreciate baseball history and the way newspapers have covered it. Minimum Bid $25.
