    1940's Baseball Stars Multi-Signed Glove with Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio. Extraordinary relic was the pride and joy of young Jan Dolcater, a resident of Tampa, Florida who took advantage of Major League Baseball's annual southern migration to compile one of the most impressive rosters of autographs we've yet encountered. While there is a percentage of lesser names among the forty-seven signers, Dolcater was clearly a discerning young man when it came to his glove, choosing his targets wisely. The Hall of Fame is disproportionately represented, with thirteen now immortalized in Cooperstown bronze:

    Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Warren Spahn, Bobby Doerr, Joe Cronin, Ernie Lombardi, Hank Greenberg, Bob Feller, Stan Musial, Hal Newhouser, Bill McKechnie, Bucky Walters.

    Other notables include: Johnny Pesky, Johnny Sain, Marty Marion, Harry Brecheen, Dom DiMaggio, Al Schacht, Tom Henrich, Birdie Tebbetts.

    While any single item blessed by the touch of so many diamond legends is worthy of attention, the unique medium of a baseball glove sets this specimen apart--almost never do signed gloves of this vintage surface. Perhaps even more noteworthy is the simply spectacular condition of the piece, providing boldness of 8/10 or better for each of the forty-seven autographs without exception. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
