About this Item

64 pages (counting covers). Illustrations. Lower corner of front cover missing. Small hole in front cover. Label removed from back cover. Worn and soiled. Murray Olderman (born March 27, 1922) is an American sports cartoonist and writer. His artwork often accompanied the sports stories he authored. His art also has been used by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and hung above the Hall of Fame busts. Recently, the Hall of Fame made all of the artwork digital so it must be accessed by visitors to the hall through electronic kiosks. Olderman was hired by the McClatchy Newspapers of Sacramento as a sports cartoonist. Olderman's work appeared in 750 daily newspapers for the greater part of 35 years. His columns and cartoons were distributed by the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), a Scripps-Howard syndicate. Olderman's employment with the NEA began in 1952; he became its sports editor in 1964; executive editor in 1968; and a contributing editor in 1971. Although he "retired" in 1987, he was active until the news service was overtaken by a larger corporation. Olderman is the founder of the Jim Thorpe Trophy, for the National Football League's Most Valuable Player, and distributed by the Newspaper Enterprise Association. He also founded the NEA All-Pro team in 1954, which ran though 1992. It was considered the "Player's All-Pro team". Olderman was inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame in 1993. In 1997 he was inducted to the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. This publication was presented by Phillies. Phillies is a brand of American-made cigars, originally made in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from which the brand takes its name. Phillies cigars, originally produced by Bayuk Cigars, Inc., are presently manufactured by Altadis U.S.A., Inc., the American subsidiary of Spanish-based Altadis S.A., which is in turn owned by Imperial Tobacco. The original cigar, introduced by the Bayuk brothers in 1910, was named the Philadelphia Hand Made and popularly shortened by the smoking public to "Phillies", a nickname that eventually became the brand name. Phillies come in several sizes: Black Max, Blunt, Cheroot, Cigarillo, Mexicali Slim, Mini Blunt, Panatella, Perfecto, Sweet, Tip, Titan and now Phillies Finest.
