Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This 64-page "Yankees Sketch Book - 1950" holds plenty of black-and-white photos of Bronx Bombers stars, and this copy also harbors 19 desirable signatures placed beside those athletes' respective images. Their penmanship is rendered in black fountain pen ink and exhibits generally "8-9" strength and clarity. Includes: Casey Stengel, Frank Crosetti, Tom Henrich, Phil Rizzuto, Joe Page, Vic Raschi, Bobby Brown, Jerry Coleman, Ed Lopat, Hank Bauer (smudge), Billy Johnson, Cliff Mapes, Gene Woodling, Charlie Silvera, Ralph Houk, Fred Sanford, Johnny Mize, Allie Reynolds and Tommy Byrne. (Scriptings of Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra are "clubhouse" examples.) The book is about VG/EX with cover separation and natural wear, but its signed pages display nicely. Full LOA from PSA DNA.
