    1950 Baseball Greats Multi-Signed Baseball with Cobb, Speaker & Dean from Texas League Record Attendance Game.
    They say everything is bigger in Texas. Dallas Eagles' Minor League owner Dick Burnett wanted to make Opening Day of the 1950 season extra special. His goal was to shatter an attendance record for a Minor League contest. He did this by inviting some of Cooperstown's finest enshrinees to join in, along with a few former stars.

    While many were reluctant at first, Ty Cobb's acceptance was followed by the these notable diamond stars: Frank "Home Run" Baker, Duffy Lewis, Charlie Grimm, Tris Speaker, Charlie Gehringer, Travis Jackson, Mickey Cochrane and Dizzy Dean. The final attendance was 53,378 patrons and the old-timers put on an exhibition before the happy crowd. This toned Texas League baseball is signed by seven baseball greats. The autographs average 7/10 with a few dipping slightly. Included are: Speaker (5/10), Dean, Cochrane, Jackson, Lewis, Cobb (5/10) and Gehringer. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
