About This Item

New York, Chicago, San Francisco: Wilson-Western Sporting Goods Company, 1930. First edition. 2 volumes. 8vo. The wrappers are illustrated with Rogers Hornsby in batting stance on the front cover. There are some marginal tears and general wear and soiling, especially to the Made -To -Measure catalogue; else in very good condition. Housed in a custom-made clamshell box of cloth with inlays of wood and leather. These two companion catalogues illustrate off-the-rack and tailor-made uniforms in a variety of price ranges. They contain original wool flannel samples, a drawing of the complete uniform, full description and price. The READY-TO-WEAR catalogue is sixteen pages (plus covers), fully illustrated and contains thirty-two uniform samples in a variety of colors and pinstripes. The MADE-TO-MEASURE catalogue is thirteen pages (plus covers), contains illustrations and sixty uniform samples in a variety of colors and pinstripes. Additionally, there are endorsements for mitts (with photo portraits) by Bill Terry and Ray Schalk. We have been unable to locate any other copies of these or other Wilson swatch book catalogues in OCLC or any other database. The library of The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York had heard that such catalogues were produced, but had never seen one. Rare.
