Outstanding 64-page equipment catalog for Draper-Maynard's Spring & Summer, 1918 season.  Full-color illustrative cover depicts an airplane made of baseballs, flying over a ballpark, as if to imply that the company's baseballs fly out of fields.  As is the case with many equipment catalogs of this era, the pages are a mixture of photos of equipment models and player images with endorsements.  An interior page pictures the members of the 1917 World Champion White Sox, including seven of the eight members of the Black Sox (missing Swede Risberg), as well as a team photo of the NL Champion New York Giants.  Other endorsers include Walter Johnson, Joe Jackson, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Jake Daubert and more.  EX condition, though foxing has discolored the cover.
