2 1920s Issues of “Baseball Magazine” with Frank Frisch Covers and a Scrapbook.

Lot 242. 2 1920s Issues of “Baseball Magazine” with Frank Frisch Covers and a Scrapbook. Captain of the New York Giants, Frisch is on the cover of the Aug. 1925 edition with Zack Wheat, new manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Frisch and Wheat are both Hall of Fame members, Frisch inducted in 1947, and Wheat, in 1959. On the June 1926 cover, Frisch is shown in batting practice with an unidentified catcher behind him. The 1925 issue has a vg appearance, complete with the cover intact. Closer examination reveals the remnants of scribbling throughout the cover that has been substantially erased. The pages are vg+ to ex with one article asking whether the lively baseball should be abolished and another on Gene Tunney as a potential “worthy opponent” for Jack Dempsey. The 1926 issue is g+ to vg with writing at the top outside the photo. There are articles on Max Carey, the decline of pitching, Mickey Cochrane and whether Rogers Hornsby can overtake Babe Ruth as a home run hitter. An accompanying scrapbook has more than 25 newspaper photos of baseball players, including Hal Newhouser and Dizzy Trout, Jimmie Foxx, Tommy Holmes, Phil Cavaretta and less well known players. The photos are glued in, and the pages are loose and relatively brittle. There also is a page with box scores for the first four games of the 1945 World Series and a two-page 1955 “Washington Star” article that looks at what some former baseball players were doing, including Cy Young, Gabby Harnett, Mel Ott and others. Seven former players are pictured. Winning Bid $30.
