Description

    Circa 1930 Baseball Greats Autograph Book with Gehrig, Hornsby, Wagner, Foxx, Mack, Ruth. Autograph collecting has transformed into big business. The game's greats, past and present, can be found signing everything in sight. When this autograph booklet was signed, we assume around 1930, the hobby was in its infancy. Autographs were simply a way to prove a chance encounter with a celebrity or sports hero did indeed happen. Young Ray Beck's autograph success is available with this offering. Plenty of trips to the ballpark were needed to secure these autographs. Almost all of the signatures are 9/10 to 10/10 and were carefully preserved through the years. Included are: Dazzy Vance, Buzz Wares, Whitey Whitfield, Jim Mooney, Jack Rothrock, Pat Crawford, Blondy Ryan, Bill Terry, Lefty O'Doul, Carl Hubbell, Travis Jackson, Hal Schumacher, (2) Dizzy Dean, Pepper Martin, Ernie Orsatti, Ron Frey, (2) Paul Dean, (2) Joe Medwick, Bill Walker, Sam Leslie, Al Lopez, Joe Stripp, Dick Coffman, Jocko Conlan, Bump Hadley, Luke Appling, (2) Rogers Hornsby, Deb Garms, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Mickey Cochrane, Tex Carleton, Rip Collins, Leo Durocher, Guy Bush, Lloyd Waner, (2) Pie Traynor, Paul Waner, Sam West, Bill Rogell, Babe Ruth, Oscar Melillo, Frank Frisch, Sam Leslie, Bob O'Farrell, Honus Wagner, Lyn Larry, Wally Moses, Connie Mack, Connie Mack Jr., Earle Mack, Jimmie Foxx, Gehrig (pencil), Red Rolf, Jess Hill, Red Ruffing, Ki Ki Cuyler, Johnny Mize and many, many more. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
