M120 Detroit Free Press Tigers Supplements Overview

M120 18 Owen.jpg

This set of 18 photos was produced by the Detroit Free Press, focusing on only the hometown Detroit Tigers. The pictures could be received by redeeming coupons from the newspaper in 1935.

The photos were approximately 9″ x 11″ and featured full color photos of the team. That squad was well-represented by big names including Hall of Famers Mickey Cochrane, Charlie Gehringer, Goose Goslin, and slugger Hank Greenberg.

Appearance wise, the pictures were full-color portraits of players. Each photo had a white border with the player’s name at the bottom and an interior color border that varied between players. Unfortunately, they were printed on relatively thin stock, which makes them easy to damage.

Four colors were prominent in the photos – blue, green, red, and yellow. Those four colors are used in the interior border and also as the backgrounds.
