For more than a century the Union Printers National Baseball League has hosted an annual tournament for adult amateur baseball players. Comprised primarily of former professionals and devoted weekend warriors, the UPIBL has a rich history with some squads dating back over a hundred years. Presented is an interesting 1911 Union Printers National Baseball League program. The twine-bound baseball themed covers conceal 68 glossy pages detailing the ten participating squads from Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver, Indianapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Washington. Although none of the players got a taste of big league action, the inner photographs still depict poignant baseball action. Despite slight binding separation along with other expected age-induced foxing and wear, this keepsake still has survived the century in remarkable condition.
