Description



These are the saddest of possible words:
   "Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
  Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
  Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
  "Tinker to Evers to Chance."

    

The principals of Franklin Pierce Adams' "baseball's sad lexicon" are honored on the offered trio of 1910-1911 S74 silks. These fragile cloth artifacts present high-grade with spotless surfaces and very minor perimeter fraying. Includes: S74-1: Evers; S74-2: (2 silks) with Chance (mild creasing) and Tinker.
