    1921 D&M RULE BOOK. Though Draper & Maynard was a major player in the sporting goods business, that market was long the domain of Reach and Spalding.  Consistent with the spirit of capitalism, D&M distributed this 48-page booklet in 1921.  Its pages report baseball's official rules and, of course, intermittent ads for their goods appear throughout.  Of particular note is a full-pager picturing Babe Ruth ("the Man") - this is a very early proclamation of his skills at the plate.  Another ad features D&M's boxing gloves, billed to "fit any fist...jolt any jaw."  This publication measures 4" x 6" and its cover has multiple minor creases (VG/EX), but the pages remain EX/MT, and are firmly anchored by a solid spine.
