    1942 Babe Ruth, Mel Ott & More Signed World Series Program. An absolutely astonishing medley of Hall of Fame talent turns this wartime World Series program into a treasure worthy of placement in the world's finest autograph collections. Assembled on the cover of this Yankee Stadium publication are Babe Ruth, Mel Ott, Kenesaw Mountain Landis, Connie Mack, Leo Durocher and Larry MacPhail. All appear in pencil as dark as the day it was applied, with Mack the lightest at 8.5/10 and Ruth a powerful and perfect 10/10. Also present are the famed F.B.I. Director J. Edgar Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt's close political advisor, Postmaster General James A. Farley. Two other signatures are either illegible or unidentifiable. All are equivalent in quality to the baseball luminaries'. The program itself shows just moderate handling wear with no tears or noteworthy creasing, and the spine remains tight and undamaged. A truly special, star-studded piece. LOA from PSA/DNA.
