1914 New York Evening Sun Giants Supplements Overview

The 1914 New York Evening Sun Supplements was a set of photo inserts featuring the New York Giants. The pictures were inserted as supplements in the New York Evening Sun newspaper.

The supplements were a little unique in that they included only the head and neck of players. The sketches were in black and white and included detailed head shots of the players inside of a simple frame. The player’s last name was also printed on the front of the supplements.

With all due respect to Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson, the most interesting subject in the set arguably belongs to football player Jim Thorpe. Thorpe also played professional baseball and this is one of his few baseball issues.
