    1975 Casey Stengel Funeral Guest Book & Sympathy Cards from the Casey Stengel Collection. The baseball world bids a sad farewell to one of the game's most beloved figures. Featured in the lot is the register of funeral guests, signed by scores of mourners including Tommy Lasorda, Mr. and Mrs. Babe Herman, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Haney, Andy Carey, Buzzy Bavasi, George Kelly, Maury Wills, Billy Martin, Lee MacPhail, Jocko Conlan, Rod Dedeaux and various members of the Los Angeles Dodgers and local Southern California newspapers. Surely some hidden gems amongst the fifteen pages packed with attendees' autographs. Also here are sympathy cards once attached to flowers sent by everyone from The American League Staff, Boston exec Tom Yawkey, Stanley Coveleski, Buck Leonard, and one from "Mickey, Whitey, Yogi and Billy." Note that these cards are not actually signed by the people listed as the book is. Finally, the lot includes an assortment of nine Western Union telegrams expressing the sympathies of everyone from Eleanor Gehrig to Bill Dickey. LOA from PSA/DNA.
