In his book Tinker, Evers and Chance: A Triple Biography, author Gil Bogen mentions this very tune while describing the heady aftermath of the Cubs' second straight world championship in 1908: “Tinker, Evers and Chance had become household words. They were in the news from coast to coast. The song that Johnny and Joe had signed their name to had become a smash. Everyone was singing ‘Between You and Me.’” VG-EX w/edge tear on back two pages.

We're proud to present what is easily the largest vintage sheet music collection that we've come across. It consists of rare baseball songs and even rarer football examples—a good number of which showcase that most desirable feature of vintage sheet music: photographic player/team portraits. The collection measures the standard full-size dimensions of approximately 10x14 or thereabouts. Due to the nature of their delicate paper medium, many of the offerings have received strict technical grades yet actually display nicer. There are also some cover notations or inscriptions from past owners as is often the case. Now let's strike up the band!
