About the Book
The New York Clipper (according to its masthead “The Oldest American Sporting and Theatrical Journal”) was the standard bearer of sports weeklies during the 19th century. One of the Clipper’s features was a weekly biographical portrait of a sporting figure. More than 800 baseball players, managers, owners, umpires, and writers were thus portrayed. These biographies are collected in alphabetical order, accompanied by more than 600 portraits. The book features a foreword by noted sports historian John Thorn and more than 600 line-art drawings.
