1884-1939 Reach Baseball Guide Collection (45)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,963

Collection of forty-five issues of Reach's Official Baseball Guides, spanning the years 1884-1939. The issues represented here are 1884, 1888, 1889, 1890, 1896, 1897, 1898, 1899, and then a complete run from 1903 through 1939 (the 1905 issue is bound). This is a virtually complete run from 1884 to 1939 (missing only eleven issues to be complete through these years) and would be a very valuable and rare addition to any advanced baseball library. Fair to Good condition overall, with most displaying numerous cover and page tears, as well as tape repair. Despite the modest technical condition (which is not uncommon with early guides), the integrity of these volumes is intact, and they are naturally still great for reading and reference.Total: 45 guides. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $2,963
