According to the New York Times, the former fleet-footed NL outfielder Billy Sunday was "the greatest high-pressure and mass-conversion Christian evangelist that America or the world has known." (An incredible video clip of Sunday preaching in 1929 is linked on our website.) Offered is a first-edition copy of the 1914 hardback biography Billy Sunday: The Man and His Message (8-3/4 x 6-1/4", VG-EX; featuring embossed cover design w/bust portrait), plus a rather remarkable assortment of high-quality photo postcards (EX, one-third mailed) spanning his evangelical touring career with all manner of preaching poses as well as family shots.
