 [EPHEMERA] [PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE] [BASEBALL], 1950 Photograph of the Sacramento Solons
[EPHEMERA] [PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE] [BASEBALL]
1950 Photograph of the Sacramento Solons
Sacramento, CA: Sacramento Solons Baseball, 1950. Ephemera. B&W Illustrations; Approx. 7" x 9" team picture of the 1950 Sacramento Solons Baseball team, part of the Pacific Coast League. The players names include facsimile signatures. The photo is in Very Good condition, with no holes, tears, or toning. "The Sacramento Solons were a minor league baseball team based in Sacramento, California. They played in the Pacific Coast League during several periods (1903, 1905, 19091914, 19181960, 19741976). The current Sacramento River Cats began play in 2000." "Originally known as the Senators, the team was purchased by Branch Rickey in 1935 and renamed the Sacramento Solons. Rickey's close friend and business partner Philip Bartelme served as the Solons' president from 1936 to 1944. The Solons finished first in 1937 but lost the postseason series to the San Diego Padres. In 1942 the Solons won their first and only Pacific Coast League pennant. These were the glory years of the Pacific Coast League, during which it was unrivaled for the attention of West Coast baseball fans. The Solons drew reasonably well when featured opponents included teams from Los Angeles, Hollywood, San Francisco and Oakland. But after 1957, when the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants moved to California.". Very Good .

[EPHEMERA] [BASEBALL] [BASEBALL MAGAZINE]
Group of Full Page Photographic Images of Baseball Players from Baseball Magazine C 1940's
New York: Baseball Magazine, 0. Ephemera. B&W Illustrations; This is a group of 17 full page photographic images from Baseball Magazine c1940's featuring different baseball players, including Victor Lombardi, Dick Sisler, Mel Harder, Michey Harris, Rudy York, etc. Each picture has been carefully removed from the magazine and pasted onto rice paper. "Morse stated that his mission in starting Baseball Magazine was to "fill the need of a monthly organ filled with the highest thought surrounding the game, well edited, well printed, and filled with first class illustrations." The magazine also strove to provide human interest stories about baseball stars, such as Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson. F. C. Lane became the magazine's editor in 1911 and remained in that post until 1937. One of Lane's first issues was devoted to Cobb, including stories about him and a Q&A session with him. Morse had previously devoted issues to Cy Young in 1908, shortly after baseball commemorated Cy Young Day, and to Addie Joss in 1911, shortly after Joss' death. Despite the magazine's reverence for Young and Mathewson, in 1909 Morse wrote an article in Baseball Magazine proclaiming former Providence Grays pitcher Charles Radbourn to be "the greatest pitcher who ever lived." Another famous article from the magazine's early days described how difficult it was to be a catcher in baseball's early days.". Very Good- .

(EPHEMERA) [PACIFIC COAST BASEBALL] [SAN FRANCISCO SEALS]
The San Francisco Seals 1947 Line-Up Booklet
San Francisco, CA: San Francisco Seals Baseball, 1947. Ephemera. B&W Illustrations; SIGNED EDITION. This booklet has been signed by all the team members on their page. This is a small format booklet with illustrated covers and a stapled spine. The booklet is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in generally clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. Each player's page includes his signature, including the coaches and the trainer. The first page is for the manager Francis Joseph O'Doul -- better known as Lefty O'Doul." The San Francisco Seals were a minor league baseball team in San Francisco, California, that played in the Pacific Coast League from 1903 until 1957 before transferring to Phoenix, Arizona. They were named for the abundant California sea lion and harbor seal populations in the Bay Area. The 1909, 1922, 1925, and 1928 Seals were recognized as being among the 100 greatest minor league teams of all time." "In 1945, a controlling interest in the team was purchased by businessman Paul Fagan, with the stated intention of bringing Major League Baseball to the west coast by having the Pacific Coast League becoming the nation's third major league. He spent thousands of dollars upgrading Seals Stadium to perceived major league standards. He hired former major league player Lefty O'Doul, a native San Franciscan and fan favorite, as manager. Though the Seals won the pennant in 1946, subsequent teams under Fagan's watch did not fare as well, typically finishing in the second division. Rival clubs did not buy into Fagan's major league ambitions. Rather, they established working agreements with major league teams, and fared better than did the independent Seals." ; Signed by Collection of Signatures. Very Good+ .

Stengel was replaced by Chuck Dressen, who led the Oaks to a second-place finish in 1949 and the PCL pennant in 1950. Again, the Oaks' manager's success resulted in a promotion to the major leagues, with Dressen hired to manage the Dodgers in 1951. Former New York Giants star Mel Ott was hired as his replacement. Ott led the Oaks to an 8088 record in 1951 (seventh place) and a 10476 mark in 1952 (second place). Augie Galan replaced Ott as the Oaks' skipper in 1953, and the team stumbled to a 77-103 record and seventh place in the PCL.". Very Good+ .
