Description1926 Thomas Shibe Signed Shibe Park Pass from The Joe Carr Find. When your name is on the ballpark, it's a simple matter to get your friends inside. The provided pass granted two Philadelphia Athletics fans entry to watch Eddie Collins manage his visiting Chicago White Sox to an eight-to-six victory over Connie Mack and his hosting A's. Ted Lyons took the victory, while Lefty Grove mopped up the final three innings in a rare relief appearance. Ink is 9/10. Pass is affixed to a scrap of paper removed from a scrapbook. Dimensions approximately 5x3". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
The Joe Carr Find
Though his name may be unfamiliar to all but the true football historians, arguably no figure was more essential in raising the National Football League from its vulnerable infancy to commercial viability than the man whose personal collection is listed on the following pages. At a time when the college game was the only game that mattered, Joe Carr fought and won a seemingly unwinnable war to legitimize the pay-for-play gridiron. Though Jim Thorpe owns the distinction of the first president of the National Football League, the iconic Hall of Famer was little more than a figurehead. It was Carr whose generalship moved the needle from amateur to professional dominance.
Remarkably, this special archive narrowly averted oblivion less than a year ago when our consignor spotted a large quantity of documents being loaded into a dumpster. We can see, in the lots that follow, what a great loss that would have been to the physical history of the early professional game. This offering represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the cultured football collector.
