    Description

    1951 New York Yankees Partial Team Signed Publication with Mantle & DiMaggio.
    Horsehide will forever reign as the hobby's foremost medium for team autographs, but there's something to be said for this two-dimensional format, which allows all signatures to be viewed simultaneously. This 1951 Cleveland Indians Sketchbook was toted to Cleveland Stadium on June 5, 1951 (according to the original owner's notation), and presented to the visiting Bronx Bombers, who would win eight-to-two against Hall of Fame ace Early Wynn.

    A dozen signatures appear on the cover, most notably those of veteran Joe DiMaggio (7/10) and rookie phenom Mickey Mantle, who personalizes his rare early-format signature with 9/10 strength. Other notables include Mize (9/10), Martin, Raschi and Reynolds. Balance of autographs average 7/10. Some minor staining and warping from dampness are evident, but cause little distraction to the signatures, as our catalog imagery should convey. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
