    Description

    Late 1930's Autograph Book Signed by Babe Ruth, Gehrig, Ott & More. Just short of two hundred signatures comprise this youthful project of an avid Philadelphia baseball fan, who sought out a sizeable contingent of legends and lesser-knowns to fill the pages of his autograph book. Beginning at the first page and continuing on, we encounter such names as Ruth (small smear, otherwise 9+/10), Chuck Klein (8/10), Cuyler (9/10 pencil), Averill, Feller, Wagner, Traynor, Hubbell, Ott, Combs (9+/10 pencil), Ruffing (9+/10 pencil), Dickey (9+/10 pencil), Gehrig (9/10 pencil), Gomez (9+/10 pencil), Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt (9+/10 pencil), Joe DiMaggio (9+/10 pencil), Greenberg (9+/10 pencil), Gehringer (9+/10 pencil), Mize (9+/10 pencil), Slaughter (9/10 pencil). Unless otherwise noted, all are in 9/10 or better ink. A wonderfully evocative archive of the prewar game. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
