    Description

    1934 Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig & More Signed Autograph Book. A charming little autograph book distributed by a shoe store in the St. Petersburg, Florida spring training home of the New York Yankees offers thirty-seven signatures from the Bronx and beyond, most notably the dynamic duo of Ruth, who appears on the back cover in 8/10 black ink, and Gehrig, who is a perfect 10/10 pencil on an interior page. Apparently the book was taken out of retirement in the mid-1940's, as joining such early Thirties types as Gomez, Lazzeri, Combs, Rolfe, Hoag, Ruffing and Crosetti is Phil Rizzuto. The book shows reasonable wear, with several pages loose (or almost loose) from the spine and some water staining that only affects Crosetti, Ruffing and Hagen in any noteworthy way (Ruth and Gehrig, it must be noted, are entirely unaffected). LOA from PSA/DNA.

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