    Description

    Circa 1940 Baseball Autograph Scrapbook Signed by Babe Ruth, More. A young baseball fan named Stanley Horowitz made use of a standard composition book to compile his collection of autographs, pairing cut signatures with newspaper photographs to create his own little masterpiece. Close to one hundred signatures are here, mainly in pencil, but highlighted by a 9/10 blue fountain pen ink Babe Ruth signature. Other Hall of Famers present: Traynor (2), Grimes, Hoyt, Cuyler (close trimmed), Lopez, Lloyd Waner, Vaughan, Stengel, Combs, Kelly. Over half of the cut signatures have never been affixed to the pages or have fallen out. Some worn Wheaties box cut-outs and other premiums are here as well, though our card experts have confirmed the value of these is not significant. A charmingly evocative little collection recalling an age of purity in our National Pastime. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
