Default 1948 Sportfolio Bob Feller Premium?

I have a rather poor copy of the 1948 Apr Sportfolio Magazine with Bob Feller on the cover. Inside there was a business reply card for a subscription to the magazine, which also offered a free full color photo of Bob Feller, described as "a reproduction of Sportfolio's cover, suitable for framing, 8 x 10 inches in color."

I have never seen this Bob Feller premium before. Does anyone have a copy of one to share? Are there other Sportfolio premiums?

Default 1948 Sportfolio Bob Feller Premium - Success!!!

After 4yrs of searching I finally found this Bob Feller premium from Sportfolio Magazine! The item is just as described on the business reply card in the April 1948 issue - an 8x10 color copy of the cover photo. The back is blank other than a hand written name of Bob Feller in pencil. As you can see it has obvious water stains, and a less obvious paper divot near the bottom left hand corner in the yellow background, but as a collector I couldn't be happier to confirm its existence AND add it to my Bob Feller collection!

FYI, the same seller I bought this from on eBay had a Ralph Kiner premium as well, also 8x10 in color, and appears to match the May 1948 Sportfolio Magazine cover photo. That premium has a nice notation at the bottom, "Compliments SPORTFOLIO - The Illustrated Digest of All Sports"

Great year for Feller too--his 348 strikeout season. By recollection, I also believe he won 26 games that year! Awesome card!

May your collecting bring you joy as you hold the history of the game right in your hands,

Larry

Love it! Kiner is cool too. I take it this is not an issue that is cataloged. Wondering who else is in the "set".

Patience pays off again - congrats, man. But, dang - the premium shot cut off the great stripey socks that I wish the Tribe would resurrect.
