    Description

    Early 1930's Amelia Earhart, Fielding H. Yost, John Philip Sousa & Others Signed Autograph Book. As part of a high school club devoted to collecting autographs of celebrities, Carla Weimar started putting together a nice little collection back in the early 1930's. Her coup was sending Amelia Earhart a letter care of a theater in Detroit, and getting Earhart to sign the letter and return it. The signature rates a stellar 10/10. Another key in the book is bandleader John Philip Sousa, likewise in 10/10 fountain pen. College Football Hall of Famer Fielding H. Yost, who was head coach of the Michigan Wolverines winning 6 National Championships compiling a 198-35-2 and 2 record has also signed. He led his squad to victory in the first Bowl game ever played in 1902, a 49-0 Rose Bowl drubbing of Stanford. Yost has signed a piece of paper in pencil. Will Rogers has signed a cut in 10/10 although it exhibits a crease through the "R." Famed author Irvin S. Cobb has signed a typed signed letter. Additional signatures of lesser names are also included. The book comes with the original Horn brand box. Book measures 4.5x6." Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
