    Description

    1939 World's Fair "Academy of Sport" Signed Cards with Foxx, All DiMaggio Brothers. To be honest, until we came upon this lot we had no idea how extensive the faculty of the "Academy of Sport" at the 1939 World's Fair had been. Christy Walsh had been instrumental in the creation and implementation of this sports education program at the Fair, and the presented collection of class cards gives some indication of just how well-connected he was in the athletic world. The full cast of baseball signers: Boudreau, Camilli, Carleton, Cronin, Derringer, Dom DiMaggio, Joe DiMaggio, Vince DiMaggio, Durocher, Dykes, Feller, Foxx, Gomez, Gowdy, Haney, Hoyt, Greenberg, Lyons, McCarthy, McKechnie, Medwick, Murphy, Rolfe, Root, Rosar, Stengel, Stratton, Lloyd Waner, Paul Waner, Werber. And, on the yellow cards, football: Lou Little, Steve Owen, Mal Stevens. That's thirty-three cards in total, all with 9/10 or better autographs. Some have a student's name filled in, many do not. Most show scrapbook removal tape on verso, not affecting the front. Size of each approximately 2.75x4.25". Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
