Still has the Sotheby's Stickers on the cover and inside first page denoting the Barry Halper collection. Definitely a piece of hobby history! Has the original Sporting Life Porfolio Cover and 15 Team Composites. It appears several have been removed judging by gaps in the book but still an amazing opportunity to pick up a large chunk of these at one time with the added cachet and provenance of knowing where they came from! Teams include
New Orleans with a chipped lower right and a red stain in the upper left
Chicago Cubs w/ HOF'ers Mordecai Brown, Tinker, Evers & Chance one hole and one small tear repaired with very old scoth tape
Des Moines
St Louis National w/ HOF'er Beckley
Columbus Red stain in upper left
Washington, AL
Philadelphia Phillies w/ HOF'ers Nichols and Duffy
Chicago White Sox w/ HOF'ers George Davis and Ed Walsh
Boston NL w/ HOF'er Vic Willis
New York Giants w/ HOF'ers Mathewson, McGinnity, Bresnahan, McGraw
Amsterdam, Johnstown, Gloverville Red stain in upper left
Cincinnati w/ HOF'ers Huggins & Kelley
Brooklyn w/ HOF'er Hanlon

If no condition is listed there is light general wear but little in the way of signifcant damage.
