Item details

Baseball Greats from the 1930s to the 1960s, Baseball in World War II, Women's Baseball, & Expansion

This package features eight beautiful 11 x 9 inch color photographs, four featuring montage collections of memorabilia of Hall of Famers Bob Feller, Ted Williams, Duke Snider, and Brooks Robinson and four others that reflect important aspects of the history of baseball and the major leagues: two highlighting memorabilia from the women's baseball leagues of the 1940s and '50s, uniforms representing four expansion teams as well as the two teams that were the Washington Senators in their previous lives, and a picture of the letter from President Franklin Roosevelt to Commissioner Kenesaw Landis in January, 1942, that discusses the need to keep major league baseball operating during World War II. Photos are salvaged from books published with the cooperation of the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. Suitable for framing, of course, or let your creative imagination run wild while honoring both the grand old game and those who love it.

Also part of the package are three 12 x 10 reproductions of historical sports pages that highlight memorable performances of Feller (1936) and Williams (1952) as well as the 1955 headline declaring that at last, the Brooklyn Dodgers are World Series Champions.

The collection is capped off by the inclusion of sixteen baseball cards, fourteen of them being facsimile copies of vintage baseball cards that include Williams, Robinson, Harmon Killebrew, Al Kaline, Charley Gehringer, and Joe Sewell. The two non-facsimile cards are of Women's League star Snookie Doyle and a "golden moment" card that memorializes Toronto Blue Jay Joe Carter's dramatic winning home run in the bottom of the ninth inning of the climactic sixth game of the 1993 World Series.
