     In early 1949 legendary cartoonist Will Eisner started a comic book publishing company. He published only two books: Kewpies and Baseball Comics, and then pulled the rug on the enterprise. In 1991 Kitchen Sink reprinted the very rare original Baseball Comics (over $500 Overstreet) in full color, on a much better paper stock, and with a heavy card stock cover. Eisner, aided by writer Jules Feiffer and artists Tex Blaisdell and Jerry Grandenetti were the creative team on the lead story, "Rube Rooky" and a real-life 1926 wacky story about the Dodgers' Babe Herman. Eisner had N.Y. Daily News sportswtiter Hy Turkin predict the "Top Rookies of 1949" in the original comic. Added bonus: KSP included (bound into the centerfold) four newly-designed removable baseball cards of the '49 rookies, drawn by Kings in Disguise artist Dan Burr featuring Alvin Dark, Richie Ashburn, Gene Woodling and Eisner's fictional Rube Rooky character. These 4 baseball cards were available no where else, so if you are (or know) a card collector, these may actually be more desirable than the comic.
