Default 1903 Giants mag picture - "premium" description drives up price

Posted By: Scott Forrest

Here's an item that I bought (intact) for $24.95, but is up over $150 now, cut down: What's fascinating is the seller's description of the item as a premium inserted into the magazine, which apparently has pushed the price way up. Burr McIntosh was a very high-quality magazine of photos and drawings and all pages were of the same paper as this picture - the seller is correct in that the paper is heavier stock than other old premiums; unfortunately, the image quality isn't as good as the Sporting News premiums. The picture was simply another photo which was bound into the magazine. I bought the same page two months ago for $24.95, complete with the top part of the page which included the three binding holes! The page was actually 6 1/8" x 11 3/4" before being cut down. But do you warn the bidders? Since it's not cataloged, I guess it's value is whatever someone's willing to pay.

Hi Scott, I agree with you, that 'premium' was tagged on to boost the price.

I do note that Burr McIntosh was not your ordinary magazine. McIntosh was a well known New York celebrety photography, and the quality art or photo pages were bound with ribbon. The picture you have is, at the least, a step up from from a picture cut out of Time or Sports Illustrated. Other than in perception, the distribution and presentation of the Burr McIntosh pages is not that much different than the circa 1900 Sporting News Suppliments. While the Sporting News Suppliments were inserted individually in magazines, bound sets (with holes where they were bound)could be sent away for. The same goes for the parallel National Copper Plate set.
