Vintage Baseball on Boy's Life Magazine Cover

Boy's Life magazine baseball

June 1935.

I loved getting this magazine while growing up.

1. Note the scoreboard in the background. That explains it the whole illustration. Fathers vs Sons. The Sons are winning. The father at bat looks frustrated and his suspender has come loose. The young catcher has a shit-eating grin.

2. Also note the NRA logo in the upper right corner. The NRA has had a long-time alliance with the BSA.

3. Ralph Henry Barbour wrote the cover story. He was an extremely prolific writer.
