    Description

    1950's Baseball Greats Signed Autograph Book with Two Jackie Robinson Signatures. Autograph collecting has grown exponentially over the years. Once upon a time, the hobby was for kids to have a remembrance from their chance encounter with a superstar. Now it is big business. This autograph book was collected by a youngster in the 1950's. A heavy emphasis is placed on the Brooklyn Dodgers so this collector may have been raised in the borough. The cuts have been tape affixed inside and a few have suffered damage due to the adhesive. Jackie Robinson is featured twice in this collection. One index card features a 9/10 signature while a 7/10 pencil autograph has tape administered. Autographs include: Ralph Branca, Preacher Roe, Don Newcombe, Pee Wee Reese, Carl Furillo, Duke Snider, Chuck Dressen, (3) Jake Pitler, Cookie Lavagetto, Vin Scully, Ted Kluszewski, Ray McMillan, Grady Hatton (with two 1951 Bowman cards pasted in), Ransom Jackson, Bruce Edwards, Cal Abrams, George Crowe, Andy Pafko, Don Hoak, Gil Hodges, Joe Black, Barney Ross, Barney Ross and more. Also included is a Cecil B. De Mille signed banquet program. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction 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.
