    Description

    Circa 1950 Baseball Autograph Album with Robinson, Campanella, Mantle. There's nothing quite so charming as a child's autograph book, and you tend to find some of the highest quality exemplars in such keepsakes. Such is certainly the case here, as young Bonnie Jones of Fellsmere, Florida apparently made the rounds of her home state's spring training grounds seeking out the game's best and brightest. A few dozen autographs are found within, each rendered in 9/10 or better pencil, and anchored by Jackie Robinson (2), Roy Campanella, Mickey Mantle (desirable rookie era format!), Phil Rizutto, Connie Mack, Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges (2), Don Newcombe and more. All listed signatures appear either alone or in small groups on the album's pages, with no signatures on the verso of these pages. Strong "break down" value here. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
