Description



Centuries of futile play led Philadelphia Phillies fans to thinking "wait 'til the next millennium". Ok, so it wasn't actually centuries, it just felt that way to Phillies' loyalists of the 1920s-1940s, who suffered through decades of also-ran and more often almost-ran teams. Relief finally came when the sharp as a tack "Whiz Kids" put together a magical season in 1950. One of the ways this refreshing youth movement was celebrated was the series of "Pin-Up" photos issued by hometown newspaper, "The Bulletin".


Capture the Whiz Kids magic with this complete set of (26) 1950 Bulletin "Pin-Up" photos. This fairly fresh set of premiums rounds the bases in pleasing (average VG to EX+) condition with clean surfaces, nice gloss and sharp images. Featured are: Richie Ashburn, Jimmy Bloodworth, Putsy Caballero, Milo Candini, Bubba Church, Blix Donelly, Del Ennis, Mike Goliat, Ken Heintzelman, Stan Holmig, Gran Hamner, Willie Jones, Ken Johnson, Jim Konstanty, Stan Lopata, Russ Meyer, Bil Nicholson, Bob Miller, Robin Roberts, Andy Seminick, Eddie Sawyer, Ken Silvestri, Curt Simmons, Dick Sisler, Eddie Waitkus, Dick Whitman.


Most photos have small written notations at top on the reverse, however the Donnelly photo has notes on the top border of the obverse, that do no affect the image area.
