    1941 New York Yankees & St. Louis Browns Multi Signed Programs Lot of 2. In 1941, the city of St. Louis had a hard time supporting two Major League Baseball teams, and the Browns prepared for a cross-country move to California. Shortly before closing the deal, however, the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor took place and brought the talks to a stall in light of more pressing matters. For auction here are two 1941 Scorecards for the Browns versus the New York Yankees. Both programs rate in EX-MT to Near Mint and pencil signatures average 9/10.

    The first, unscored, is signed both on the front cover and the inside pages, by Joe Gordon, Dizzy Dean, Johnny Murphy, Tommy Henrich, Charlie Keller and Joe McCarthy of the New York Yankees, and the following Browns: Don Heffner, Harlond Clift and one other. The second program is signed by Yanks Charles Ruffing, Red Rolfe, Phil Rizzuto, Joe McCarthy, Lefty Gomez, Ken Silvestri and two other Yankees, and these Browns: Rick Ferrell, Johnny Lucadello, George Caster, Jack Kramer, Bill Trotter, Joe Grace, Alan Strange and one other. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
