    Description

    1927 New York Yankees Partial Team Signed Autograph Album. A child's trip to Florida to recover from pneumonia turned into the adventure of a lifetime, as his decades-later handwritten letter of provenance attests. His trip took him to a home just a few blocks from the New York Yankees spring training grounds, where he would spend afternoons watching the greatest team in history prepare for a season that lives in baseball immortality. Here we present the evidence of his brush with greatness, an autograph album signed by seven pinstriped icons who are today enshrined in Cooperstown bronze. Each page is individually signed, with no signatures on verso. The roster: Ruth, Gehrig, Huggins, Lazzeri, Durocher, Hoyt, Pennock. Also here is Pat Collins, for a final tally of eight. The Ruth and Gehrig have been individually slabbed by PSA/DNA at grades of NM-MT 8 and NM 7 respectively. All pages are loose from album, but entire album is here. Signatures average 8/10 or better unless otherwise noted. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
