    Description

    1990's New York Yankees Multi-Signed Book with Mantle, DiMaggio. Bruce Chadwick's fantastic hardcover book entitled "The Bronx Bombers, Memories and Memorabilia of the New York Yankees" serves as a fine home for over 400 autographs from the pinstriped legends it celebrates. Fifty-four different Yanks are to be found within its pages, with the signer typically searching out an appropriate image upon which to place his autograph. One of Mantle's two signatures is placed above an image of himself with Maris in 1961. One of two DiMaggio autographs appears on a collage of his memorabilia. Don Larsen signs a photo of himself delivering the last pitch of his perfecto. Other noteworthy signers: Ford, Rizzuto, Berra, Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Lemon and Slaughter, each appearing multiple times. Occasionally the former owner of the book affixed cut signatures of deceased Yankees within the pages to expand the collection even further, though the vast majority of autographs are applied directly to the pages. Autographs are uniformly 9/10 or better. The book itself shows some wear to the dust jacket from its many travels to various signings, but is otherwise in fine condition. A magnificent tribute to the boys from the Bronx. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
