Baseball Redux

top_baseball.jpg In a previous post, we had made reference to a Spalding baseball guide. Now the good people at the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library, both bastions of knowledge, have contributed even more to preserving this game’s past. “America’s National Game” from NYPL features over 500 photographs, prints, and illustrations from early baseball player and merchandiser A.G Spalding. Not to be outdone, the Library of Congress has mounted a digital collection of Spalding’s baseball guides along with biographical information on him. While at LC, don’t forget to visit their “Baseball Cards, 1884-1914” site containing images of 2100 cards which are sortable by player, team, league, city, and card set. Now if we can get Pedro back within six weeks, the summer will start to look real good.
