The Bride and The Pennant (A Thrilling Romance for Baseball Fans)
CHANCE, FRANK L.
Price: 950.00 USD
Chicago: Laird & Lee, First edition. Introduction by Charles Comisky. In illustrated wrappers with baseball scene. Frontispiece photo of Chance. The scarcest 20th century work of baseball fiction, a book so rarely encountered that most collectors are not even aware that it is a wrappered pulp. Author is the Chicago Cubs famed "Peerless Leader", first baseman of the Tinker-Evers-Chance double play combination and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame (although it is virtually certain that the book was "ghosted", probably by Chicago sportswriter Hugh Fullerton). The condition is pleasing: the wrappers have some light edge foxing (the rear wrapper somewhat less so than the front), the spine strip is fully intact except for a shallow chip at the very foot, narrow chip along the lower outer edge of the front wrap and coupel minor edge chips eleswhere. Non-reproducable scan available for serious inquiries. Very Good.
