Issued in tobacco packages in the first decade of the 1900s, over 35 baseball silks have been stitched together to form a wonderful piece of early 20th century folk art. Included in this "pillow case" is a rare variation (dark red color) of Ty Cobb, while others include Hall of Famers Brown, Bresnahan (3), Bender, Clarke, Marquard. Also included in the tapestry are silks of actresses. Measuring a square 18x18", it remains in EX condition with minimal fraying around the edges, this is simply an exquisite work.
