Possibly the finest lot of Baseball Magazines we have offered, these magazines would rate one to two grades higher if not for minor cover soiling and traces of spine wear/cracks with deference to 20% which have light to moderate staining mostly on the reverse near the spine. The issues with moderate staining are the later 1940s dates.

Many issues feature Hall of Fame players on the front cover and/or endorsements on the back cover such as Foxx, Feller and DiMaggio. 1920s covers feature art type images and 1930s-40s covers feature an excellent array of game action or posed images.
