1916-23 Detroit Tigers Official Financial Ledger Book

The massive tome dedicated to keeping the financial ledger of the Detroit Tigers from 1916-1923 measures 13x17.5" and contains over 400 pages of entries. The complete financial details of the team and stadium can be found scrawled inside in beautiful fountain ink with incredible precision. The book itself is bound in leather and cloth, all original and in great shape. Many significant mentions are present within, including Frank & Chas. Navin, Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, Bobby Veach, Harry Heilmann, A.J. Reach (for baseballs), Hugh Jennings, Ansell Ticket Co., George Burns, B.B. Johnson, travel expenses, other A.L. baseball clubs, Detroit Times and Free Press, stadium repairs, Jesse Haines, Hillerich & Bradsby (bats), Chas, Comiskey, score card account, football games, War Tax, The Sporting News, Hugh Jennings (loan), AG Spalding Bros. (equipment) and much, much more; there is so much here that it would take months to read it all! This is a real piece of history which provides great insight into the workings of an early 20th century ball club.
