    1948 Cleveland Indians/New York Giants Program Signed by 11. On April 14, 1948, the Cleveland Indians and the New York Giants met up in Topeka, Kansas to play one of that preseason's final games. Here we offer a high-quality souvenir program from that game, signed on the cover in a stunning blue fountain ink by eleven participants of that matchup. Johnny McCarthy is the sole representative from the Giants, while the Indians are represented by several high-value signings. HOFer Bob Feller appears here, as well as fellow Cooperstown mates Hank Greenberg and Muddy Ruel, both of whom held position among the Indians' coaching or administrative ranks. The rare signatures of pitchers Don Black and Russ Christopher, each of whose final season was that year, contribute further to this fine piece. The rarity comes in that both Rosen and Black passed away before the age of 45, and neither has been alive for almost fifty years. Indians Al Rosen, Joe Gordon, Hank Edwards, and Hal Peck are also included. Scorecard inside has been completely filled in pencil. LOA from PSA/DNA.
