    Billy Evans 1947 "Umpiring from the Inside" Signed Hardcover Book. For 22 years, Billy Evans was perhaps the most well-respected umpire in all of the American League, boosting his morale with a true "tough but fair" philosophy. The Hall of Fame ump wrote what he called his "thesis on umpiring" in 1947, a book entitled Umpiring from the Inside. Here we offer a VG example of a hardcover first edition of the book, with some underlinings scattered throughout the book and various press clippings pertaining to Evans pasted inside the covers. Photographic dust jacket has suffered a good amount of damage, with tears throughout. A truly tough perfect 10 signature resides just inside the front cover, making this a great find with a tough Hall of Fame signature. LOA from PSA/DNA.
