    1956 World Series Program Signed by Robinson, Mantle. One educated fan in attendance at an Ebbets Field contest of the 1956 Series apparently decided that only the best of the best were worthy of handling his official program, as four of the five pristine blue ink signatures we find inside belong to participants with Hall of Fame credentials. Lest you think these signatures were acquired years after the event, think again. Mickey Mantle's autograph on page twenty-five is clearly in his distinctive period style, and the same can be said for those of Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson and Duke Snider, each of whom appear ten pages later. Only Sal Maglie lacks a Cooperstown plaque among the signers, and he appears alone on page thirty-seven. The program exhibits some minor staining and warping from a basement flood, though our auction imagery should properly illustrate that this brush with disaster has had no ill effect upon the flawless autographs within. A marvelous Subway Series keepsake. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
