A 6.5” x 9.5” page from a 1910 issue of “Baseball Magazine Advertiser offers a 30” x 9” Photogravure Picture of the “World’s Champions” Pirates team. Although Pittsburgh won the 1909 World Series, the ad promotes “The World’s Champions 1910.” The photo shows “the Entire Team – Twenty-five Players in all.” The left border of the page has two chips approximately ½” each, a third about 1/16” and a ½” tear. Matted and framed, the page would display well. Pirates’ catcher George Gibson is featured in a 1910 Coca-Cola ad on newsprint. The 5.25” x 6.75” has been matted to 8” x 10.” It recognizes the Pittsburgh catcher this way: “George Gibson of the Pittsburg Nationals (Champions of the World) led the League as catcher with a percentage of .983 and caught more games than any other catcher last year.” In return for a 2-cent stamp, the ad offer “our booklet ‘The Truth About Coca-Cola’ and the Coca-Cola Baseball Record Book for 1910.” Besides baseball information, the premium “contains the famous poem ‘Casey at the Bat’.” The ad, which includes an illustration of Gibson, has an ex-m appearance. A third ad promotes the 1930s “Waners’ Baseball Game.” Along with the game, both Paul and Lloyd Waner are pictured in the ad, which is framed to 9.5” x 12.25.” The ad sells the game this way, for $1.50: “Boys-It’s Here….a Real Indoor Baseball Game! Waners’ Baseball Game…Fascinating, Educational, Easy to Play-Loads of Fun.” As framed, the ad has an ex-m+ appearance. Winning Bid $61.
