    1924 First Colored World Series Multi-Signed Panoramic Display This absolutely jaw-dropping collection of autographs from "the other league" must have taken hundreds upon hundreds of hours to complete--an incredible labor of love. It would be absolutely impossible to reproduce, or to come anywhere close to recreating a piece so comprehensive. Of the 193 autographs inhabiting every square centimeter of space on the matting surrounding this reproduction panoramic print of the "First Colored World Series, October 11, 1924" , fewer than eighty signers are still alive today. Before very long, pieces like this will be all that is left of this vibrant chapter in the story of our national pastime. There are obviously far too many names to list, but notables include Joe Black, Lyman Bostock Sr., Leon Day, Gibson Jr., Toots Ferrell, Bee Bop Gordon, Hoppy Hopkins, Monte Irvin, Sam Jethroe, Sweet Lou Johnson, Buck Leonard, Lester Lockett, Charlie Neal, Buck O'Neil, Double Duty Radcliffe and dozens upon dozens more. All autographs are in either black ballpoint or felt tip ink, with not a single specimen of the 193 dipping below 9/10 in quality. Measuring an impressive 14x42" inches in size, even those sizable dimensions hardly seem capable of holding so much baseball history. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez & Bob Gryder/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA.
