Regarded by some as the best player in the history of the game, Hall of Fame shortstop Honus Wagner served in a mentor capacity following his incomparable playing career, first at Carnegie Institute of Technology and later, for the Pittsburgh Pirates. This 1920 yearbook portrays Wagner in the former endeavor. Entitled “Thistle,” the 374-page volume documents activities from the 1919-1920 school year. On page 181, a stately and readily recognizable Wagner is pictured with the baseball squad. The book shows incredible preservation with covers/pages intact and minimal edge wear on the leather-bound cover.
