The Sporting News Baseball Register

A reader asks the following:

“I have a Baseball Register book 1957 edition, published by The Sporting News
Very good condition..
Can you tell me if it’s a collector’s item and it’s value.”

So we head back to our trustworthy barometer of what’s collectible – eBay, and do a quick search.

Currently there’s a seller offering 5 issues from the 1940’s:

1941 Baseball Register Chicago Cubs Chicago White Sox – current bid: $19.99
