Offered is a complete vintage 1933 first edition of Who’s Who in Major League Baseball. The famous series, Who’s Who in Baseball, started in 1933 with the introduction of this 11 ½” x 9” hardback edition published in Chicago, IL by Buxton Publishing. The 544-page book includes biographies and photographs of all active players from 1932 as well as the front office personnel for every Major League team. The book exhibits minor scoring on the outermost edges of the lavender cover with most wear culminating on the slightly loose spine. The mesh cover lining is visible from inside, as the spine has begun to slowly separate from the heavy pages but overall condition, presentation and stability is acute. The interior pages present minimal wear and toning with dashing professional pictures of these great stars of baseball such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons, Carl Hubbell, Rogers Hornsby, Bill Terry and literally dozens of Hall of Fame ballplayers. A fabulous archive of baseball history packed into a solid VG-EX first edition book.
