1935 Detroit Sunday Times Tigers Supplements Overview
These supplements were issued with the Detroit Sunday Times newspaper in 1935. The small series features only two players from the hometown Detroit Tigers — Hall of Famers Hank Greenberg and Charlie Gehringer.
Both were excellent choices as the pair were two of the Tigers’ more popular players. The supplements feature black and white photos of the two players and both were hitting poses.
In addition to the picture of the players, their replica signatures were added and their names appeared at the bottom. At the very bottom, there is a small mention that they are a ‘Supplement of the Detroit Sunday Times.’
These supplements were a stark contrast to the M120 Series, which was a larger set of color photographs issued by the Detroit Free Press in the same year. Those photo supplements were issued through redeeming coupons by mail.
The supplement of Greenberg, in particular, is one of his earliest collectibles. His 1934 Goudey card is viewed as his rookie and in 1935, he was in the midst of only his third full year.
The supplements were regional to Detroit, obviously, and not many appear to have been kept. These pictures are pretty rare and often hard to find. Despite that, prices for them are usually pretty low when they do sell at auctions. Often, they sell for around $10-$20 each.
