Pre-dating the era of long lines and exorbitant fees for autographs, devoted fans approached players (who were, believe it or not, approachable) and gathered signatures. Presented is a sizable collection of vintage baseball scriptings. Executed on scraps of paper or pages from autograph albums, the bold signatures average (“8”) strength with highlights including: Appling, D. Dean, Durocher, Grove, Kiner, Lemon, Mack, Mize, Musial, Newhouser, Reese, J. Robinson, Schoendienst, Southworth and Spahn. Auction LOA from JSA. More on our website.
