In our fall Ringside auction we offered a run of Rhotogravures from the French language Canadian newspaper La Presse.  The full-color engravings were only partially catalgued, believed to consist of nothing but prizefighters.

Lo and behold, we receive a consignment of one single La Presse supplement featuring Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Grove.  By 1929, Grove was a full-fledged superstar, having won 20 games in two consecutive seasons with the Athletics, leading the league in 1928 with a 24-8 mark.  He reeled off a strong of seven consecutive 20-win seasons (actually eclipsing 30 in 1931), and continued to pitch effectively until his retirement at 29.  

Dry-mounted onto a piece of foamcore with a protective layer of shrink-wrap, we have elected to leave the supplement so encased.  THe presentation is excellent, the piece very well-preserved.  However, due to the cellophane, we are unable to examine the reverse for any condition wear.  Regardless, an excellent piece, depicting one of the game's greats.
