    Description

    Circa 1932 Baseball Autograph Book with Ruth, Gehrig, Walter Johnson. And these headlining stars are all on the first page! This charming little autograph album begins with a sheet autographed in 9/10 pencil by seven Hall of Famers (Ruth, Gehrig, Ruffing, Combs, Johnson, Grimes and Lazzeri) and then just keeps right on going. More Hall of Famers present: Ferrell (2), Pennock, Mack (2), Walter Johnson (again), Gehringer (2), Cochrane (2), Goslin (2), Averill (2), Simmons, Lyons, Harridge, Foxx, Cronin (2), Grove, Yawkey and Gomez. There are dozens of non-Hall of Famers too, with notables including Moe Berg, Lena Blackburne, Schoolboy Rowe and Babe Dahlgren. The vast majority are in 9/10 or better pencil, typically seven or eight to a page. All pages are only signed on one side, so there will be no problems with "cuts" if desired. The true essence of baseball autograph collecting. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
