    Description

    Early 1950's Baseball Autograph Book with Jackie Robinson, Mantle. This is what autograph collecting is all about! One young fan clearly carried this leatherbound volume along with him to man a game, slowly growing his collection until the count exceeded 250. Twenty-two Hall of Fame autographs are among the signatures, so beginning from page one, we find: Berra, Frisch, Musial, Stengel, Schoendienst, Fox, Mantle (nice rookie era style), Snider, Rizzuto, Ford, Dickey, Slaughter, Harris, Jackie Robinson, Snider again, Spahn, Mathews, Reese, Lyons, Alston, Kell, Musial again. Other notables include Gil Hodges, Billy Martin. Perhaps half of the signatures appear on both sides of a signed page, but Mantle and Robinson have nothing on the back sides, and almost never do two important signatures back each other. Autograph quality is overwhelmingly NRMT-MT, and while the leather covers show wear, the interior pages remain clean and undamaged. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
