1912 First Issue of Who's Who in Baseball

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $2,015

Extremely rare 1912 first edition of Who's Who in Baseball. The small (4.75 x 6.25 inches) soft-cover publication features professional statistics for each player in the league, from Charles Adams to Cy Young. Published by the Baseball Magazine Co. Interestingly, Who's Who in Baseball did not appear again on the newsstands until 1916, at which time it began its annual run which continues to this very day. Because of that four-year hiatus, many collectors are unaware that this rare volume, and not the 1916 edition, is actually the first edition. The booklet displays modest handling wear, including a few slight creases to the front cover, and is in Excellent condition overall. Reserve $100. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $2,015
