Lot 316.  Circa 1890-1900 Framed and Matted “Casey at the Bat” Illustrations. This two-panel sheet with superb baseball illustrations pokes fun at “Mighty Casey,” the failed batsman of Ernest Thayer’s famous 1888 poem. In the first panel, a smiling Casey, wearing a “Champion” jersey, stands with bat and ball in hand. In the second panel, children are playing baseball, and a batted ball seems headed beyond the reach of a fielder. This poem accompanies the young players: “When I grow up and am as big As ‘Casey at the bat,’ They’ll not catch me with ‘one!’ – ‘two!’ – ‘three’ – I’ll not strike out like that!” Each of the two drawings is about 5.25” x 7.75.” They are matted and framed to 13” x 17” and appear to be ex-m. They will make an excellent addition to an early 1900s trade card collection.
