For the baseball aspirant of yesteryear, this thick canvas display was the ideal tool with which to learn control and the strike zone. Crafted likely during the 1940s or 1950s, the sturdy piece measures 45-1/2 x 64-1/2” with “YANKEE BASEBALL TARGET” printed across the top. The focal point, however, is the image of a catcher and an 18-1/2 x 33-1/2” bright-red outline of the strike zone. The piece shows the effects of repeated contact, with mild staining at the lower left. Five of eight original grommets remain fastened along the borders.
