    Description

    Circa 1935 Waterman's Autograph Album Signed by Babe Ruth, Others. The autograph collecting community owes a debt of gratitude to the Waterman company for inspiring hundreds of Depression-era children to take up this nascent hobby, as today the books are highly coveted. Thirteen autographs are glued to the pages of this hardcover volume, each clipped from a larger sheet of paper. Most notable is one of the boldest Ruth exemplars ever seen, a bona fide 10/10 black fountain pen application on unlined paper (writing on back of paper can be seen faintly). Other notables: Johnny Weissmuller, Gene Tunney, Ellsworth Vines and Fred Perry. Book itself survives in fabulous condition. All autographs 9/10 or better. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
