    1946 Morris (Moe) Berg Signed Nuremberg Trials Ticket. He was one of the most fascinating figures in baseball history despite his limited athletic talents, a Princeton-educated multi-linguist who joined legendary players like Ruth, Gehrig and Foxx on the 1934 Tour of Japan for the purpose of espionage on behalf of the OSS, the precursor to the modern-day Central Intelligence Agency. Here we find an autograph from the man Casey Stengel once called "the strangest man ever to play baseball," provided in the most intriguing format we've ever encountered, a ticket for the "International Military Tribunal" of Nazi Germany war criminals, better known to history as the Nuremberg Trials. Berg's black fountain pen ink survives at an impressive 9+/10 strength, and the ticket (2x4") is likewise NRMT-MT. It is particularly noteworthy that the ticket is for Session 209, which focused primarily upon the persecution and extermination of Jews in Nazi concentration camps. As a member of the Jewish faith, Berg surely witnessed the proceedings with particular interest and sadness, and one can only imagine his state of mind when providing this autograph to a fellow attendee. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
