When I Grow Up: The Baseball Player
8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
St. Nicholas Magazine
Four-page insert from the September 1909 edition of St. Nicholas magazine. Includes two full-page color illustrations and two pages of b/w drawings with poem. The verse accompanying the illustration references "Casey at the Bat," and the large color illustration of the adult baseball player looks like it could be a flattering drawing of a smiling Honus Wagner of the Pittsburgh Pirates (who as one of the best teams of all times were heading toward a World Series Championship that year) although the name on the belt is "Casey." Bright, fresh, and clean. See accompanying scanned image.
CASEY AT THE BAT, HONUS WAGNER, PITTSBURGH
