1939 Cincinnati Reds scrapbooks and additional loose articles. These were put together by a Reds fan back in 1939. Reds were National League Champs in 1939 and played the Yankees in the Series.Red book has 69 pages of articles cut from newspapers. Blue book has another 28 pages of clippings. Leading right up to World Series. Yankees photo I have posted includes Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio.
Many pages have great action cartoons and writeups of the game's action. Stack of loose articles includes a 12 page 1939 World Series newspaper insert.
Looks like many of the articles came from the Cincinnati-Times-Star newspaper. See in the pictures that some of the articles include mention of Germany. The pages of the scrapbooks are getting bad but the articles seem to be in very good condition. Looks like most of the articles have been glued in the books. Very cool items for a Reds baseball historian or "fan-atic".
