1924 Tomas Gutierrez premium pictured every major league team
One of the 1924 Tomás Gutiérrez premium collector's album picturing players from every major league team.
This one, which was up for auction at Cuban Baseball Cards in September 2010, shows members of the
Cincinnati Reds, including Carl Mays (bottom, second from left), who threw a pitch that killed Cleveland shortstop Ray Chapman on August 16, 1920; and Cuban star Adolfo Luque (top, second from right).
Each team had two pages and the pages would all be bound in a hardcover album. Only a few albums are known to exist, according to the auction information.
