The Bride and The Pennant

Chicago: Laird and Lee, (1910).

Price: $1,750.00

Softcover. First edition. Paperback original. Preface by Charles A. Comisky. Small bookstore label on the front wrap and the title page, cheap pulp paper quite browned, a couple of very small chips to the page edges and a couple of tiny chips to the wrappers, still a clean, very good plus copy in pictorial wrappers. Very rare pulp novel by the Cubs' "Peerless Leader" and which includes a short biography of Chance. McCue in *Baseball by the Books* speculates that it was ghostwritten by Hugh Fullerton, who dedicated his own first baseball novel to Chance, and who ended his last novel with the toast, "To the bride, the groom and another pennant." Fullerton was a reporter for a Chicago newspaper whose reportage was instrumental in breaking the 1919 Black Sox scandal, and he was the only local writer to predict that the White Sox "Hitless Wonders" would beat the Cubs in the 1906 World Series. Rare.
