Witness the birth of a classic sports publication with this inaugural issue of Street & Smith's Baseball Year Book. Published in 1941, this venerable first edition "Pictorial" magazine is graced by a cover photo of Bob Feller, who later that year became the first MLB player to enlist for military service in WWII. Interior photos include Ted Williams, Joe Cronin, Jimmie Foxx, Joe DiMaggio, Bill Dickey, Phil Rizzuto, Charlie Keller, Red Ruffing, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Leo Durocher, Lou Boudreau, Ducky Medwick and many other stars of the day. In light of its considerable age, this very nicely preserved example is very impressive, rating as (EX-MT) with only minor traces of wear, while displaying a clean, glossy cover and a tight spine.
