The Four Base Hits “Good Book” Find! It is the stuff that sports collecting dreams are made of. Early in 2014 a couple from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, trekked to a far-flung thrift store and purchased a group of used books dating back several decades. After returning home and leafing through each volume, a curious discovery was unveiled after generations of concealment. It was uncovered in a late 1800s edition of The Holy Bible and used by the original owner as a bookmark. The sepia trading card featured a portrait of a baseball player surnamed Clarkson along with the advertising slogan, “Smoke Four Base Hits, Four for 10 Cents”. This interesting antique accompaniment was subsequently set aside over several months before the Keystone residents began to investigate its origins in greater depth. Read More
