Featuring full team composites for each Philadelphia based team; this vintage 1909 baseball supplement is a rare and fascinating item. The brittle nature of vintage newspaper combined with the acid content of newsprint makes old single sheet newspapers among the most difficult collectible to preserve. That being said, this newspaper supplement, presented as a single broadsheet, is in EX-MT condition with only the outermost edges exhibiting signs of age and wear. There is a singular fold across the middle at the proper place the newspaper would have been bent and the left edge has been cut by hand from the rest of the paper. The images of these great teams include (23) Phillies and (23) Athletics with Connie Mack, Eddie Collins, Eddie Plank and Chief Bender. The overall measures are 22 x 16 and the actual date on the supplement is May 16, 1909.
