LOT SETTLEMENT AND PICK-UP

Available immediately following session or weekdays 9:00 AM 5:00 PM CT by appointment only.

*This session is presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken by phone and through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) Extended Bidding / 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.

11/11/11. This final Heritage Sports Collectibles Signature Auction of 2011 will conclude on that numerologists dream of a day. What does it mean? Anything? Ballplayers are notoriously superstitious, and six number ones would seem to be a positive omen, but our tremendous confidence in this auction isnt bolstered by lucky numbers. Its pure reason that fuels our rosy outlook for this groundbreaking auction event. Yet again, our consignment directors have scoured the country (and beyond) seeking the rare, the significant and the valuable, and were pleased to present our largest and most star-studded Signature auction in Heritage history. A pair of fresh-to-the-hobby finds rises to the pinnacle of their respective subgenres. The earliest known Ty Cobb uniform, the road grey jersey and pants worn by the Georgia Peach while traveling with the 1922 Detroit Tigers, brings the known population of the former Hit Kings jerseys to four. And the son of a former manager in the Carolinas Tri-State League provides a baseball bearing a stunning NRMT autograph from the reclusive Shoeless Joe Jackson. The locker room doors of yesteryear swing wide with a seemingly endless array of Hall of Fame flannels: Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Bob Feller, Chuck Klein, Duke Snider, Joe Ducky Medwick, Warren Spahn and Steve Carlton to name a few. Historic lumber derives from Gil Hodges glorious 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series victory, and Mickey Mantles appearance in the 1959 All-Star Game. And we have a Boston Braves cap from the Final season in the game for Babe Ruth. The happy coincidence of high-end golf consignments has made this event required viewing for any hobbyist with a links concentration, as the trophy rooms of legends like Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Bobby Locke and Paul Runyan spill open with Championship medals and other artifacts from their seasons of dominance. Elite boxing consignments provide three centuries of pugilistic thrills, highlighted by Tom Sayers letter accepting the famous 1860 Heenan bout, and the Middleweight Championship belt won by Carl Bobo Olson. Those voices decreeing the end of quality trading card finds will be rendered silent for another auction cycle, and the first ever offering of the 1887 Kalamazoo Bats Ed Cushman card is likely to leave quite a large number of collectors speechless as well. A high-quality 1933 Goudey Baseball set also makes its hobby debut in the pages that follow. From tobacco to candy to bubble gum and everything in between, this auction should provide attractive targets for the smoker and the sweet tooth alike. Of course, one need only feel the heft of this catalog in his hands to conclude that this letter barely scratches the surface of the riches contained within. Keep in mind as you devise your bidding strategy that we are happy to accept consignments toward payment of auction invoices, and our consignment directors are always available to discuss potential auction values. As always, I close with a word of gratitude to the consignors who have chosen Heritage, and to the bidders who will give their treasures a new home. Thank you for putting your trust in us, and for helping to make Heritage the Worlds Largest Collectibles Auctioneer. Sincerely,

Chris Ivy Director of Sports Auctions

80001 1887 N690 Kalamazoo Bats Ed Cushman SGC 50 VG/EX 4 - A New Discovery. This is the rst time this card has ever been oered at public auction. The career of Edgar Leander Cushman lasted a span of seven years (1883-1890). Representing no less than ve dierent teams during his playing days, Cushman compiled a 60-82 record and a lifetime 3.86 ERA. His greatest achievement came late in 1884 with Milwaukee. While appearing in only four games, Ed won all four games! In back-toback starts fans saw a no-hitter and then eight scoreless innings, an almost impossible feat in baseball. The discovery of this Kalamazoo Bat earns Cushman the attention in the hobby world he doesnt enjoy for his on the eld exploits. He is listed in reference guides but to date this is the rst recorded entry based on both PSA and SGC census reports. We have found no instance where an example has been sold publicly. The in-uniform portrait is the same image used for the very rare N172 Spotted Tie sub-set featuring members of the New York Metropolitans. Graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4, the card has very light edge/corner wear with minor spot staining that only mildly aects an image that is crisp with ne details. Some surface roughness appears on the blank reverse. How often does one have to acquire the rst available example of a close to 125year old collectible? It is entirely possible only a few other copies may have survived. Starting Bid: $3,750

Session One, Auction #7041 | Thursday, November 10, 2011 | 10:00PM CT

80002 1876 Washburn & Moen Barb Fence Armor Trade Card featuring the Boston Base Ball Grounds. Oered for the rst time (as best we could determine) is a very rare 1876 trade card advertising Barb Fence Armor. Barb wire was rst patented in 1868 making this a very early promotion for the product which was popular with farmers and ranchers. It seems it was also a favored part of the stadium for the Boston Base Ball Grounds as the the front displays a wood cut scene of a game being played plus surrounding buildings. The back copy conveys the testimonial of N.F. Apolonio, President. The 6 x 3-3/8 thin cardstock collectible has passed the test of time well with only light corner wear and a spot stain or two of note. Overall excellent condition and a rare entry for any 19th century collection. Starting Bid: $150

80004 1887 N172 Old Judge Cigarettes John Irwin, Washington. Graded PSA EX 5, one of only four total examples graded by that rm. (Pose #243-3). Solid high end copy of John Irwins Washington variation. Four corners with minor wear at corner tips which frame a nicely detailed image of the 11-year inelder. Clean surfaces and a problem free reverse. Starting Bid: $150

80003 1887 N172 Old Judge Cap Anson, Street Clothes SGC Authentic. Cap Anson is among the most important subjects of the monumental, and signicant, N172 Old Judge series. The set is certainly the most important 19th Century sports release and this is one of only a pair of portrait poses in which the baseball pioneer appears. The oered specimen does show its age, now just shy of 125 years old. Soiling, corner wear and light creasing is present. The card has been assessed SGC Authentic most likely due to trimming. In any condition, a signicant addition for the N172 enthusiast. Starting Bid: $250

80006 1887 N28 Allen & Ginter R.L. Caruthers PSA NM 7. From the rst mainstream tobacco issue we make available this largely problem free card of the baseball player R.L. Caruthers. One of ten baseball players in the issue that focused on athletes from a variety of disciplines. This PSA NM 7 portrait card depicts Parisian Bob Caruthers who both pitched and played in the outeld for the St. Louis Browns and the Brooklyn Bridegrooms. The card has slight edge wear on the reverse and some faint ink ghosting. Corner tip wear is minimal. A solid high end card. Starting Bid: $200

80005 1887 N172 Old Judge Harry Wright PSA EX 5. The only example to occupy the EX level on the PSA pop report with four grading higher. To date, only ten total N172 Harry Wright cards have been graded by that rm. A rare opportunity to acquire this extremely scarce subject from this historical issue. The card issued in honor of the Hall of Fame baseball pioneer responsible for such innovations as the modern uniform and baseball score sheets, Harry Wright is considered a pivotal pioneer of the game. Graded PSA EX 5, there is a distinctive lack of physical evidence towards its true age. The formal portrait of Wright has faded but is free of any surface imperfections. A key entry for Hall of Fame collectors, 19th Century enthusiasts and N172 Old Judge specialists. Starting Bid: $1,250

80007 Circa 1888 Marceau & Power Cabinet Henry Boyle SGC Authentic. Henry Boyle pitched for only ve years and has some odd stats to show. In 1886 he went an abysmal 9-15 but had an impressive 1.76 ERA. In his last season he actually won 21 games, but lost 23 in the process. This 5-1/16 x 6-5/16 cabinet card has been slabbed SGC Authentic due to the right and top edges being trimmed. Henry is clearly named on the mount that has a few areas of adhesive(?) staining, two clipped corners and Traitor Boyle written on the reverse. The photo itself is only mildly aected by condition issues. Henrys image is sharp and clear with good detail and contrast. An attractive example of an obscure player from a rare 19th Century production. Starting Bid: $125
Session One, Auction #7041 | Thursday, November 10, 2011 | 10:00PM CT 9

80008 1888 N162 Goodwin Champions Cap Anson PSA Authentic. The 50-card Champions edition is certainly one of the nest tobacco card productions of the 19th Century with a sports theme. Featuring an array of athletes from various sporting endeavors, none are more sought after than the eight baseball players and the undisputed key subject is Chicago 1st Baseman Adrian Cap Anson. Anson was a prominent member of the 19th Century baseball community and the N162 that bears his portrait is one of his best cardboard keepsakes. The oered example presents as a typical excellent level card, but appears to have been rebacked with a second N162 card. Assessed PSA Authentic. Starting Bid: $300

80009 1890 Waldon-Smith Cabinet John Clarkson SGC Authentic. Extremely scarce Circa 1890 G. Waldon-Smith Studios cabinet card of Boston star pitcher John Clarkson. From 1885 to 1889 Clarkson won an exhausting 209 games but would be retired just ve years later. During that historic span, his worst showing was the 33 wins he posted in 1888. By the time he retired in 1894 John had pitched over 4,500 innings and won 328 games. This rare 4-3/16 x 6-5/16 Clarkson collectible, aside from the clipped corners, has just a few condition issues, the worst being a small chip into the top edge. On the clean, blank back are the words Copyrighted 1889 written in ink along the bottom. The front has the name John L. Clarkson noted in the bottom border area under the actual photo and shows general overall age toning plus some obvious staining. The central image is moderately aected and has retained sharp detail in the face. A faint Boston is still visible across his chest. A rare 19th Century collectible of one of the eras top performers. Starting Bid: $500

80010 1894 N142 Duke Honest Cabinet John S. Johnson, Cyclist. Cards in the series designated N142 are referred to as cabinet cards but are really much more. For one, their generous 6 x 9-1/2 size dwarfs your traditional cabinet and in place of a real photo there is a beautifully lithographed illustration. Certainly a premium obtained in exchange for what was probably a kings ransom in coupons. N142s are among the most breathtaking tobacco promotions of the 1890s with examples only rarely oered. Presented even in fewer quantities are the non-baseball subjects as we oer here. This Honest brand cabinet features bicyclist John H. Johnson. The corners show some wear while the all-important central image has only light surface web wrinkling on the left background area. The reverse shows a pair of corner wrinkles and in light ink the initials J.C.M., probably the monogram of a proud previous owner. Overall, very good to excellent condition with the aforementioned ink notation on the reverse. A truly rare collectible found in only the most advanced collection. Starting Bid: $150

80011 1895 N300 Mayos Cut Plug Billy Nash SGC 40 VG 3. Billy Nash was a star of the game in the 1890s playing 11 of his 15 years with the team he is depicted on his N300 Mayo card, the Boston Beaneaters. In what seems like an odd highlight, Nash stands out as he hit 10 home runs not once but twice in his career. After Boston, Nash spent four years as player/manager for Philadelphia. This is a solid middle grade copy, now graded SGC 40 VG 3, with surface & corner wear, one crease and a surface scratch. The reverse surface is largely free of issues, the portrait of the Boston star is well dened with deep detail. Starting Bid: $150

80012 1904 Allegheny Card Co Hand Cut Joe Stanley SGC 88 NM/MT 8. By denition the rarest of all baseball card issues, it is believed that just a single prototype of each player for this boxed card game was ever produced. The game, failing to reach production, consists of 112 known cards, each featuring only National League players. Discovered in the late 1980s, all known examples have been cut by hand and the set was sold intact in 1995 when the cards were then sold individually. Here we present the one and only example of Boston Braves left elder Joe Stanley, rating an impressive SGC 88 NM/MT 8. If you are enamored with 1 of 1 cards, this issue is a dream come true for you. Starting Bid: $250

80013 1909 T204 Ramly Clark Grith SGC 84 NM 7 - Highest SGC Grade Available. This is one of a pair to be graded at the 84 NM 7 level with no known SGC example grading higher. The Old Fox is surrounded with golden scrollwork on this most beautiful of all tobacco issues. Issued during the Hall of Famers brief tenure as skipper of the Cincinnati Nationals, Clark was also a seven time 20-game winner and would own the Washington Senators well into the 1950s. Condition is exceptionally strong for a piece of this vintage, with the totality of wear conned to the outermost corner tips.

80015 1909-11 E90-1 American Caramel Ty Cobb SGC 40 VG 3. The E90-1 set was produced by the American Caramel Co. from 1909 though 1911 never requiring any youngster to stand outside a tobacco shop begging for the treasured thin card inserts. The bulk of the set was released in an era when Ty Cobb captured the AL Triple Crown (09) and was a unanimous choice for MVP of the American League (11) after posting a .420 batting average. The oered card has been graded 40 VG 3 by SGC but certainly not based on eye appeal or corner wear more associated with higher grade labeling. The only aws are a pair of very small surface chips, one just above his cap, the other at his pant leg. There are no wrinkles or creases. At arms length, this appears to be an excellent condition card. Nice card for the grade. Starting Bid: $200

80017 1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Frank Chance, Red Portrait PSA NM 7. He was dubbed The Peerless Leader as he led the Cubs to pennants in 1906-08 and 1910 as their player-manager.

80019 1909-11 T206 Piedmont Ty Cobb, Bat O Shoulder SGC 50 VG/ EX 4. A erce and determined look in the eyes of the early baseball legend makes this variation the most honest portrait in this most popular of tobacco issues. Judging solely by the visual power of the image area, this card would be tough to beatcolor and registration are superb, no creases or stains on front, ever so faintly on the verso. It is due solely to the typical edge and corner wear that this card was designated a SGC 50 VG/EX 4. Starting Bid: $300 80021 1909-11 T206 Piedmont Johnny Evers, Portrait SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Few vintage cards are capable of enlivening a collection in the manner brought about by the introduction of a top-quality T206. If the card happens to feature Johnny Evers as its subject, the eect is even more pronounced. Of the trio of poses devoted to Evers, his Portrait with the distinct Green Background - seen here - is by far his most striking depiction! Evers penetrating gaze on this marvelously well-conceived insert commands special reverence as it challenges in authority the stern glare of the Georgia Peach himself. It is a hundred-year-old classic that boasts enduring appeal, and is oered in a state of preservation that will doubtless inspire fascination for yet another century. Among the hundreds of copies of this depiction validated by both SGC and PSA, there are none at the Mint level (with no detail regarding pose). The SGC report shows only three at the NM/MT level with only one higher. On the face of this abundantly praiseworthy specimen, Everss visage projects with almost startling clarity, and the brightness of his memorable surroundings has remained completely unblemished by time. Unforgiving examination intended to expose mostly non-existent faults reveals the centering of the graphics slightly low of perfection, a whisper of wear at the bottom-right corner (the bottom left corner is Gem MT quality) and faint toning along the left perimeter on the reverse. The cards Piedmont - 150 Subjects reverse-side design is boldly inked. A fantastic example of a prime T206 entry. Starting Bid: $1,500

80020 1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Ty Cobb, Red Portrait SGC 50 VG/ EX 4.

Very light edge wear and mild corner rounding is all too obvious here but overall visual appeal is higher. This precisely registered example has ben graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4 and has a Sweet Caporal 350-460 Series reverse. Starting Bid: $200

80031 1910 D322 Tip Top Bread The Tip-Top Boy Mascot PSA EX+ 5.5 - Pop One, Highest Graded Example! What team is complete without a mascot? The tradition goes back to the earliest days of the game and few can forget the classic image of Buck Ewing and his pint-sized side-kick posing for the Goodwin issues of the late 1880s. When Ward-Mackey honored the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates they took the opportunity for a little self promotion and issued this card of The Tip-Top Bread Mascot. This was a fun addition adding some air to the otherwise formal portraits of the Pittsburgh players and team owner. Not just cute, he is also quite scarce and is as highly prized as the most admired players on the team. A high end card well deserving of the PSA assessment.

80032 1910 D322 Tip Top Bread Honus Wagner SGC 40 VG 3. While the issue may not be familiar to the casual collector, the image most assuredly is. Its an artful remaining of Carl Horners denitive photographic portrait, the same image utilized for the creation of the shortprinted T206 tobacco card which serves as the hobbys most coveted and valuable cardboard. Just twenty-three Tip Top Wagners have found a home in a SGC capsule, only ve achieve an equal VG 3 designation. Seven have graded higher. The rather imsy paper stock utilized in the sets creation is largely to blame for the scarcity and condition issues, but we nd none of the typical extensive creasing that plagues the surviving population.

And Wagner, as the undisputed leading star of the Steeltown squad, would be more susceptible to wear from trading and handling under ordinary circumstances. Starting Bid: $2,000

The rarest of the T205 variations is the card of Cincinnati Reds rst baseman Richard Hoblitzell without playing statistics on the back. How rare is the No Stats Hoblitzell? To date, SGC has graded around 40 Magie errors and T206 Eddie Plank cards but only four conrmed copies of the Hoblitzell no stats have been recorded.

80062 1912 S110 Baseball Player Silks Pillow Case Premium. Oered is the 23 x 23 premium made available by Helmar Cigarettes in exchange for 100 coupons in 1912. That was a grand amount in that time which required a great deal of smoking. The redemption program was made along with the beautiful individual baseball players silks which could be had for 25 coupons. The images are beautifully rendered and are surrounded by key elements of the game anchoring the baseball theme. Today, the colors have faded but this piece is very scarce and a highly prized entry into any vintage collection. One of two dierent known varieties, the ve pictured players are all timeless legends including Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Frank Baker, Walter Johnson and Tris Speaker. Each athlete is surrounded by a red crosshatch border which served the function of telling where to attach the individual silks but also adds to the overall design and visual appeal. This piece does not have any silks attached. Matted and framed to an overall size of 31 x 31-1/2. The cloth has been mounted via a single stitch in each corner. The cloth itself has one small tear near Cobb plus edge wear. Starting Bid: $250

80063 1912 S81 Large Silk Grover Cleveland Alexander #89 Consumers could choose which of the 25 popular baseball players of the day they wanted portrayed on a large 8-1/2 x 7 silk. With names like McGraw, Bender, Baker, Lajoie, Collins, Cobb, Speaker, Mathewson and Walter Johnson few would think to pick a young 2nd year lefty many might have thought was a president than a ball player in Grover Cleveland Alexander. This could explain why nding an Alexander on one of these beautifully colored silks is such a formidable challenge today. Just to qualify for a silk required 25 coupons (you only needed 10 coupons for a cabinet card (T3s)) which is why S81s are overall very scarce. The search is well rewarded as they are among the most beautiful display pieces the hobby has to oer. The oered silk is sharp looking with framing showing on all four sides. One horizontal crease and staining in the far lower right corner barely impacts the bold colors of Alexander in mid-wind up in his grey Philadelphia uniform. The gure and surrounding graphics pop o the surface. A rare entry from a formidable series with tremendous display and bragging rights value. Starting Bid: $500

80081 1914 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson #88 SGC 10 Poor 1. On Independence Day of this year, the great Christy Mathewson shut out the Phillies in the bottom half of a Polo Grounds doubleheader to notch his 350th career victory. With Babe Ruth nothing more than a promising prospect at the close of the year 1914, and Ty Cobb a brilliant but unlovable star, it was Mr. Mathewson that held the collective hearts of baseball fans nationwide at the time he appeared on this Cracker Jack card. Mathewson would appear in the 1915 Cracker Jack series but this attractive horizontal pitching pose would be replace by a regal portrait of Factoryville, PAs native son. Today, this revered card is among the most dicult cards to acquire from either of the E145 editions. Graded SGC 10 Poor 1, this card has creasing and soiling and an obvious reduction in the paper stock in the lower left corner, evidence that this card was once mounted in a vintage scrapbook. A prize for Cracker Jack collector and Mathewson enthusiasts as well. Starting Bid: $1,250

80082 1915 Cracker Jack Christy Mathewson #88 SGC 96 Mint 9. A dream will come true for one sophisticated collector here, as Heritage presents one of the most remarkable E145-2 Cracker Jack cards to be placed upon the auction block in recent memory. Those with even a passing knowledge of the baseball collectibles can appreciate the scarcity and desirability of any Mint condition Mathewson baseball card. Mathewsons illustrious career was largely cemented in history by the time this card came to market. His career earned Matty a well justied place in Cooperstowns inaugural class of ve legends of the game. A hero o the eld as well, Christys death by pneumonia in 1925 was the delayed result of a poisonous gas attack occurring during his service in World War I . Issued only a year shy of his retirement from professional baseball, the multi-colored portrait is of a very young Mathewson, printed with a high degree of precision. His image and surrounding awless red eld are interrupted only by the Cracker Jack BALL PLAYERS tag line. The centering is perfect. The borders are bright and fresh, the back is a strong strike resulting in fully legible lettering. To be critical beyond the point of reason we will add there are micro dot bers in the paper stock within the white frame. If one passes on this card for that reason the lucky winner will be eternally grateful. Do we even need to add this is one of the two highest graded examples known? Starting Bid: $5,000

80085 1915 Cracker Jack Honus Wagner #68 PSA NM-MT 8. For the many hobbyists focusing their attention to candy, this is a most coveted piece. We should all be thankful that a complete set of Cracker Jack cards could be obtained for the heady sum of either 100 Cracker Jack coupons or 1 coupon plus 25-cents. The mailman must have been rather popular that year warding o the clamoring of impatient children desperately waiting for that package with the Cracker Jack return address. This oer alone seems to have allowed a small percentage of these thin paper collectibles to survive in this close to awless state for future generations to gaze in bewilderment at what it must have been like to experience these now treasured mementos as they just rolled o the presses. Ranking among the great names like Jackson, Johnson and Cobb in status within this 176-card issue, the Old Dutchman is shown in an insightful portrait betting the rst shortstop to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame. Colors are so vibrant its tough to believe that the card will be celebrating its centennial very soon. A magnifying glass is necessary to discern any hint of surface or edge wear, slight levels of wear at corner tips is all to explain the NM-MT 8 assessment. We will note that only sixteen cards have achieved a rating of NM-MT, only four have managed a higher grade. This is an exceptionally clean copy waiting to take its rightful place in one of the most advanced vintage card collections. Starting Bid: $5,000

Each six inch pennant shaped piece of felt features a small black & white photo of the designated player glued down surrounded by the players name and team. One of the key names of the series is this man, Shoeless Joe Jackson. His name brings an immediate reaction of awe and wonder. In 1916, his rst year with the White Sox, he was still at the top of his game and this BF2 pennant is one of his more scarce collectibles. What is even more amazing is the condition in which this item has survived. It is among the highest grade examples this writer has seen.

The image shows no creases or wrinkles or chipping. The Peach colored felt shows barely a hint of wear with outer corner tips showing slight levels of wear. The graphics are all crisp and free of chipping. A Strong EX-MT to NM example. Starting Bid: $250

80089 1924 V122 Willard Chocolate Babe Ruth #5 SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. This is also one of Babe Ruths more obscure card collectibles. Graded 70 EX+ 5.5 but viewed in a EX/NM slab wouldnt raise many eyebrows. Ruth was already well on his way to lling up the pages of baseball history when this card appeared in 24 with his best years still ahead of him. The oered V122 displays the appropriate Home Run Champion title under a full length portrait of the beloved Yankee slugger.

You just dont see this card offered very often and few will equal the presence of this high end copy. Starting Bid: $500

80090 1924 V122 Willard Chocolate Ty Cobb #39 SGC 40 VG 3. Of the twenty-four submitted examples this is one of six at this grade level with eight grading higher.

The Hall of Fame Yankee, his eyes locked upon the viewers draws the attention of all. Only a slight surface scu in the upper-left corner is found to suggest eight decades of existence, placing it behind just a single example on the PSA population charts.

80094 1932 R328 U.S. Caramel Mickey Cochrane #12 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. The association between caramel and cards was in the nal stages when U.S. Caramel gave the hobby this 32-card series of mostly baseball players in 1932. Noted for their distinctive red backgrounds, this format oers great eye appeal in any condition. To see one so immensely fresh and bright you are literally taken back in time, your awe being the same as that lucky youngster almost eight decades ago. This stunning SGC 88 NM/MT 8 card featuring HoF catcher Mickey Cochrane is about as nice a 1930s vintage card of any designation youll see. The most hawkish eye will see the very faint spot of yellow in the far upper left corner, a spot immediately overshadowed by the vibrant and bold inks; four frosty white borders; corners that show the bare minimum of wear limited to outer tips; surfaces as smooth as silk.

80095 1932 R328 U.S. Caramel Babe Ruth #32 PSA EX-MT 6. Caramel cards themselves are often problematic, falling victim to staining by the product with which they were packaged.

Lastly, the Babe nds himself the nal card in this issue of thirty-two, leaving him in real danger of the excess wear generally plaguing the rst and last cards in a set. After all that we are in awe of the exceptional quality of this high end PSA EX-MT 6 U.S. Caramel. The only hints of the passing decades lie in the ever so slight foxing of corner tips. Centering is as perfect as youll nd; both surfaces are exceptionally clean. The rosy red portrait of The Bambino perfectly captures his boyish charm and everlasting appeal. Free from almost all printing imperfections. Starting Bid: $1,500

This is not only the only example of card #12 to be graded 96 Mint 9 but the only card in the entire Delong series to earn the exalted assessment! And what a fantastic example it truly is. The card stands above the others as largely as the full-gured depiction of the Pirates HoF inelder. Centering is precise, coloring is fresh and bold, corners come to the expected sharp 90-degree angles. Delong Gum cards are quite scarce compared to the other promotions of the era.

80122 1933 Goudey Sport Kings Helene Madison #37 SGC 88 NM/MT 8 - Pop Two with None Higher. One of only two female athletes to grace this great issue. Madison was a world renowned swimmer whose determination led her to the top of her sport. This card has sharp corners, great color and near perfect centering. One of only 2 examples to have been graded at the NM-MT level with none higher. Starting Bid: $150

80123 1933 Goudey Benny Bengough #1 SGC 86 NM+ 7.5 - Pop One with One Higher! This is the only example to generate an 86 NM+ 7.5 label from SGC with only one copy grading higher. From the highly coveted classic series issued by Goudey in 1933 we present this beautiful #1 card featuring the Browns backstop Benny Bengough. Although Benny will never see his portrait on the wall of the Hall of Fame if the hobby had a card HoF this card would be a member. This is quite possibly the most famous common in the hobby. All rst cards are tougher to nd in high grade and no set shows us that more than the 33 Goudey series. For whatever reason this high end example has managed to survive with no damage to the cards surface and retains four sharp corners. A shift in the 25/75 centering and who knows what the SGC label could have read. A top of the line copy of the hobbys most condition sensitive cards. Starting Bid: $2,000

80124 1933 Goudey Napoleon Lajoie #106 SGC 84 NM 7. Only the famous Honus Wagner card of the T206 set could claim a more vast divide among card collectors between those who fervently desire a specimen and those that actually own one. Both the T206 Wagner and the 1933 Goudey Lajoie are so scarce that listed full set prices for the issues fail to take them into consideration, beaten into submission by the knowledge that the cards just cant be found. Well, weve located one for our Heritage bidding clientele, allowing one lucky customer to switch teams to the haves from the have nots. Thanks must be oered to one young Depression-era set builder, who would not be deterred by the fact that card number 106 was not available in standard wax packs. It took a letter, mailed to the Boston oces of Goudey Gum Co., to earn this toughest of all cards from this Big Three set, accounting for their terric scarcity today. In light of the tiny population of surviving examples, the fantastic condition of the representation found here could almost be considered overkill-certainly this is no card for the casual collector. Consider that 211 examples of the sets second most valuable card, Babe Ruth #53, have been slabbed by SGC, almost eight times the amount of Lajoies (twenty-seven graded). And with only four rating higher than the oered example, one could safely rank this card among the most desirable of the chewing gum era. Starting Bid: $7,500

80125 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #144 SGC 60 EX 5. The essence of the Depression-era game, distilled into a single three-inch tall piece of card stock and printers ink. The details of the oering are little more than a long list of superlatives, as the set and the player it pictures rank at the pinnacle of the hobby. Joining the 1909-11 T206 and 1952 Topps issues to form the baseball card collectings Big Three, the 1933 Goudey set is rightfully considered a consummate masterpiece, with gorgeous portraiture capturing many of the greatest names of the pre-war era. And certainly there was none greater than Babe Ruth, who strikes his classic batting pose here on what may be the sets most recognizable card. Rich colors and problem free surfaces bring the Babe to life almost three-quarters of a century after issue. Minor corner touches and a slight centering shift are all we can report which would account for the technical assessment. Starting Bid: $750

80126 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #149 SGC 60 EX 5. It would be easy to go into a lengthy essay about the achievements of Babe Ruth but the rst line on the reverse says it all, Home run king of the big leagues. As a tribute to his sovereignty, Ruths likeness was featured no less than four times within the 1933 Goudey series. Considering the handling a cherished memento like this would endure, this example has survived as a ne representation of its type. A beautiful red background with equal levels of light corner wear. A solid excellent level copy. Starting Bid: $750

80127 1933 Goudey Lou Gehrig #160 SGC 84 NM 7. Today, just as must have been the case 70-odd years ago, the sight of Lou Gehrigs batting posture never fails to generate excitement in the heart of the baseball enthusiast. Modern collectors can only marvel at the idea of peeling a gum packs wrapper - and spotting the NY logo on the gures cap, or picking up the sight of those Yankee pinstripes - as the full picture of the legend emerges into view. Its a thrill that knows no generational boundaries, largely because the 33 Goudey portrayal of the Iron Horse is such a timeless one. Like few others, this classic piece - with its incomparable subject - successfully captures and projects the feel of its era. This gum cards status as an elite relic, while immediately apparent upon viewing, is corroborated by its ranking in SGCs population tallies. As one of only four copies sharing its tier (and surpassed by only three) the card stands within clear view of the apex of its numbers 165-card census. Brilliant in every respect, this Gehrig tribute concedes just centering to the technical gods with just hints of sheet transfer so common with this issue. A tremendous card with little sign of ever being publicly circulated. Starting Bid: $1,000

80128 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The games most beloved star from the hobbys most beloved pre-war gum issue. Card #149 from the 1933 Goudey set of baseball legend Babe Ruth is easily one of the keys to this classic vintage issue. Adding his three other appearances, any doubt regarding the status of the Babe, here depicted with his prized tool-of-trade, is erased. Rich colors and problem free surfaces bring the Babe to life almost three-quarters of a century after issue. Minor corner touches and a slight centering shift are all we can report to account for the technical assessment. A rock solid EX/NM card any day of the week. Starting Bid: $1,000

80130 1933 Tattoo Orbit William Cissell SGC 88 NM/MT 8. From a total population of only seventeen cards we have the stand alone nest copy graded to date. Just the slightest hints of wear at corner tips. Starting Bid: $150

80129 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #181 PSA EX-MT 6. As if there was any doubt, Babe Ruths status in baseball was well expressed with his four appearances in the 1933 Goudey edition. Gehrig manages to appear twice but Goudey saw t to use the same illustration. Card #181 pictures the Babe holding his trusty lumber, gazing upward from within a highly detailed portrait. This could easily be a brief, quiet moment for Ruth, sitting on clubhouse steps, watching the current Yankee batter, torn between placing the ball into the left, center or right eld stands. This is an eye-catching example. Exhibiting four clean, frosty borders which surround a striking portrait placed slightly low of vertical perfection. Perfect print registration (a treat with this card), vibrant ink quality, and slight wear to corner tips completes the notable attributes. The reverse oers a nicely struck name and bio in that unmistakable Goudey green ink. Traditional reverse print ghosting (overkill from the sheet placed under this one) is minimal. For the baseball card fan with the desire to own a piece of history this is a very nice card for this grade level. Starting Bid: $1,000

80131 1933 Tattoo Orbit Roy C. Johnson SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. From a total population of only sixteen cards we have the stand alone nest copy graded to date. Starting Bid: $150

80132 1933 Tattoo Orbit Ted Lyons SGC 84 NM 7. From a total population of only twenty-two cards we have the stand alone nest copy graded to date. Slight wear limited to outer corner accounts for the grade. A great HoF card. Starting Bid: $200

80134 1934 World Wide Gum Babe Ruth #28 PSA G-VG 2.5. Scarce and attractive World Wide Gum of Babe Ruth from the 1934 Canadian series. The grade reects a largely unobtrusive horizontal crease. Corners display beyond the regular standard normally found in cards at this grade level. Saturated colors have managed to outlast 70 years of time. Starting Bid: $250

80133 1934 Goudey Charley Gehringer #23 PSA NM-MT 8. Hall of Famer Charlie Gehringer has been marvelously preserved for his entry in the collectorfavorite 1934 Goudey issue. Outstanding centering and rich color in image area help this card rate a well deserving NM-MT 8 from PSA. Starting Bid: $375

80136 1939 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio #26 PSA NM 7. Any baseball artifact relating to the historic centennial season of 1939 is worthy of tremendous collector interest, and this is certainly high on the wish lists of card collectors and baseball historians alike. The young Joltin Joe appears in perfect contrast, with only the lightest of touches on the corners. Solid centering is also presented on this superb pasteboard, which earned the desirable PSA NM 7 designation. Starting Bid: $250

80135 1938 Goudey Jimmy Foxx #273 SGC 88 NM/MT 8 - One of Two. Only 2 examples have been graded at the NM/MT level by SGC with 1 grading higher. A very popular issue that combines a realistic facial portrait with a cartoonish body. The designs subtle colors complement the natural toning of this 2 3/8 X 2 7/8 collectible. The card has spot on centering with only a little wear at the corners contributing to the NM/MT grade. The reverse is clean with no detracting features and we would be remiss if we failed to add this is from the scarcer second half of the 48 card series identied by the trivia/factual illustrations surrounding Jimmies full gure depiction. A condition rarity and a prize coup for the Foxx specialist. Starting Bid: $750 80137 1939 Play Ball Ted Williams #92 PSA EX-MT 6. This card and the 39 Play ball lot being oered elsewhere are being made available for the rst time at public auction. Graded PSA EX-MT 6 this card has qualities generally associated with cards above the technical assessment. We can assume the one ink dot in the upper left was enough to aect the quality corners, close to precise centering and otherwise clean borders and front/back surfaces. A very nice card for the grade.

80138 1939 Play Ball Morris Berg #103 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. Did someone just open a pack of 39 Play Ball cards?

80139 1940 Play Ball Joe Jackson #225 SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Shoeless Joes banishment from the game following the 1920 season likewise signaled his departure from any and all card issues he would have appeared in. With Baseballs centennial celebration and the opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939, Gum Inc. capitalized on the nostalgic fervor and included Jackson as part of an extensive roster of long retired baseball greats in their 1940 production. The decision is certainly hailed by modern collectors who have made card #225 the key to the series. A solid example is oered with no creases, wrinkles and only light corner and edge wear. Very nice EX/NM copy. Starting Bid: $375

80162 1941 Play Ball Ted Williams #14 PSA EX-MT 6. In 1941, the Splendid Splinter managed a feat that has not been matched in the seven decades since. Williams hit safely a little better than four out of every ten times at bat and the rest as they is history. His 41 Play ball card is a perfect memento of this achievement. This representation presents at the upper echelon of the PSA EX-MT 6 spectrum. Sharp corners and great color highlight this ne bright and fresh looking example. Starting Bid: $225

80161 1941 Play Ball Jimmie Foxx #13 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Pop Two with None Higher! A beautiful representation from the popular 1941 Play Ball issue featuring Hall of Fame Boston Red Sox slugger Jimmie Foxx. Great centering, sharp corners and clean front and back card surfaces are clearly evident when viewing this high-end exemplar.

80164 1941 Play Ball Hank Greenberg #18 PSA NM+ 7.5. Truly high grade 1941 Play Ball cards are scarce and few pieces from this issue meet the requirements of the most discerning collectors. Quality control, in the areas of centering, print registration and defects often leave much to be desired. The oered card of Detroit Tigers legend Hank Greenberg excels in all these respects. We can only guess to why this card wasnt graded higher. It is a very sharp card and in our opinion it would seem right at home sitting in a NM-MT holder. Starting Bid: $200

80176 1941 Play Ball Bill Dickey #70 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. As the reigning champion of SGC graded 41 Play Ball Bill Dickey cards one can only wonder if after 70 years another could match the precise centering, rich colors and sharp corners of this NM/MT example. Bill Dickey was part of a staggering 14 World Series Championships during his stellar career with the New York Yankees and he never looked better. Starting Bid: $300

80177 1941 Play Ball Lefty Gomez #72 SGC 84 NM 7 - Pop Two, the Highest Grade Available. One of a pair at the 84 NM 7 level with none higher. Lefty Gomez closes out the 41 Play ball edition and as the nal card in the series is just as condition sensitive as the rst.

80178 1945-46 Caramelo Deportivo Martin Dihigo #65 SGC 30 Good 2. To date, 28 total examples submitted to that service there are only two recorded higher. Martin Dihigo was quite possibly the nest all-around player of his or any generation ever to step onto a baseball diamond. First baseman, Third baseman, outelder and even pitcher, Dihigo excelled at every position and to this day is recognized by his peers for his immense talent. He is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Mexico, Cuba and as of 2006, the ultimate baseball shrine in Cooperstown. The very thin paper stock Caramelo Deportivo or Sporting Caramels were circulated in Cuba in 1945-46 and are among the most signicant foreign baseball sets ever produced. The set was almost entirely overlooked until top talent from the Negro Leagues were inducted into the HoF. This was one of the few sets to have featured Negro League athletes, as they were limited to playing in Latin-America, Mexico or Cuba. As baseball fans, we should all be thankful we have these fragile collectibles to honor them. Dihigo only appears in three series, all from the mid-1940s and this is his rookie card appearance. The oered example is a superb example for the issue. The fragile paper stock does exhibit very light wrinkling/creasing and there is no paper loss on the front or back which is extremely rare for this series. This beauty never made it into the special album designed to house the entire series. The overall eye appeal suggests a solid EX to EX/MT card for the respectable centering and elevated corner quality. A signicant addition to any Hall of Fame Rookies or Negro Leaguers specialty collections. Starting Bid: $500

80181 1948 Leaf Warren Spahn #32 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. The rst color issue of the modern era is infamous for the hurried printing quality resulting in a high percentage of cards with poor registration and/or centering and the economic card stock didnt help. Thankfully this impressive example suers very little ill eects of production resulting in a fresh and bold portrait of a young Warren Spahn on this his rookie card appearance. The four corners, all high quality. Surfaces are free of blemish/damage and 99.9% free of stray ink. A terric card to add to ones HoF Rookie collection. Starting Bid: $750 80180 1948 Bowman Stan Musial #36 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. A Stan Musial rookie card of the highest caliber is mandatory for inclusion in any worth-while Hall of Fame collection. Problem is, the cheap (Yes, we said it) porous stock and Bowmans lax quality control in this initial eort make securing a high end prize particularly dicult. This very well centered example is among the nest seen by SGC with only ve cards receiving higher grades. Add a dark portrait of the young Musial and four sharp corners and you get one impressive HoF rookie card. Starting Bid: $600

In fact, considering that his rst Bowman card appeared during the second of Leafs two seasons of issue, one could rightfully consider this Paiges true rookie. Satchel cracks his endearing smile above the caption of his rarely spoken given name, as if hes aware just how tough this short-print beauty is. A nice card for a PSA EX 5 (OC), the qualier explained by the centering. Touches of wear on the corners are more than acceptable for the grade. One of the rarest and most desired cards of the modern era. Starting Bid: $1,250

80184 1948 Leaf Joe DiMaggio #1 PSA VG-EX 4. Centering has determined the the technical grade. Great colors and strong EX-MT quality corners and surfaces. Starting Bid: $150

80183 1948 Leaf Bob Feller SP #93 PSA EX-MT 6. One of nine at the EXMT 6 level with fourteen examples grading higher. A read of the list of names of the short prints from the 48 Leaf series and two names immediately jump out at you and both are pitchers of the nest caliber. One is Negro/Major League legend Satchell Paige and this man, Hall of Famer Bob Feller. For those hearty souls wishing to nish the journey of completing the benchmark series Feller ranks high among the subjects that are last acquired. Popularity does account for some of the lack of availability but overall he is oered considerably less often than others. The oered card is about a solid copy as you can nd. The portrait of a smiling Feller rests high and to the right of center. Surfaces are free of any dings, bumps, mishaps, etc.; ink quality is still vibrant; corner quality is more akin to cards in a NM holder. An unquestionably scarce card where the supply will never satisfy the always in-demand collectible. Starting Bid: $500

80185 1948 Leaf Babe Ruth #3 PSA EX-MT 6. A number of Babe Ruths exploits are documented on the back of this post-career card issued the same year as his passing.

A strong, nicely centered EX-MT example. Starting Bid: $300

80260 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 86 NM+ 7.5. Argue all youd like that the 1952 Topps card is Mickeys true rookieany calendar tells you that Mantles Bowman appearance in 1951 came rst. Well also take issue with anybody who claims the Topps rookie is a prettier card, as were of the opinion that Bowmans designs of the early 1950s represent one of the high water marks in cardboard aesthetics. This is particularly true with this stunning example. The chance to say awlessly registered image is a treat not aorded to every oered copy. The nineteen-year old legend in the making, who stands at batting attention before a cloud-dappled sky on this high-grade high-number virtually jumps o the surface. Graded SGC 86 NM+ 7.5, this copy deserve better in our opinion. The shadowing caused by a printing press roller barely detracts from the intense colors, close to precise centering and a quartet of surrounding high quality corners. A strong example for the grade and more importantly, a visually impressive sight of one of the hobbys key cards. Starting Bid: $3,000

While Willie doesnt carry quite the same weight as his fellow newcomer Mickey Mantle among 52 Topps collectors, he is rightfully considered one of the key cards in the set and top examples tend to be ercely contested at auction. We certainly expect that advanced collectors will give this specimen the attention it deserves. This is a very attractive example where centering determined the technical grade.

Still just a fresh-faced 20-year-old at the start of the season, Mantle made his rst of 16 AL All-Star appearances and nished third in the leagues MVP race in 1952. The oered card is nicely centered, has good colors and only light corner wear. A faint eye level wrinkle and a brief surface scratch in the rich and saturated blue background have earned this visually appealing classic a PSA VG+ 3.5. Starting Bid: $2,000

80280 1953-54 Briggs Meats Don Newcombe PSA Authentic. Of the multitude of regionally circulated baseball card promotions of the last century, one of the most highly sought after and dicult to nd are the Briggs Meat hot dog baseball players from 1953-54. The cards were circulated within a very limited region as part of the bottom panel of hot dog packages. Today they are rare and when found are usually in deplorable condition.

This card has had some coloring added to creases on Dons forehead, chin and neck. Starting Bid: $150

80279 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle #82 PSA NM-MT 8. Full bleed color at the lower left corner is the y in the ointment for most cards from this second great Topps Baseball issue, but this remarkable specimen dodges that pitfall most admirably, providing the look of a card straight out of 1950s wax. The magic isnt conned solely to that southwest corner though, rich color and tight registration are also characteristics. Micks now classic portrait sits high of center and a slight surface impression close to the upper right corner accounts for the PSA NM-MT 8 grade. Very attractive example.

80291 1954 Topps Hank Aaron #128 SGC 96 Mint 9. No one single action in baseball generates the same awe and jubilation as the home run. With one graceful motion, crowded base paths can be instantly cleared and the outcome of the game irrevocably altered. The man who graces this 54 Topps baseball card amassed 755 of those cherished moments. Moments thankfully made possible thanks to the erasure of the color barrier broken by Jackie Robinson. Though Aarons own assumption of the home run crown came more than a quarter century after Robinson broke the color line, Hammerin Hank was forced to endure everything from racist taunts to death threats as he reeled in the Babe. Although Aarons remarkable 755 career home run total has been surpassed it is with the dreaded but seemingly necessary asterisk that many purist look on with an arched judgmental eyebrow. The accomplishments of Aaron are viewed wholly pure, without stain or grammatical accoutrements. Hank Aaron would rst appear on a trading card in the 1954 Topps series, his talents already showing even at this early stage of this career. Today this rookie card is one of the hobbys most important entries of the post-war era. This exceptional SGC 96 Mint 9 example of his 1954 Topps rookie card is a tting tribute to the skill and bravery of historys most prolic slugger, remaining to this day entirely unchanged from its emergence from a wax pack over a half century ago. Oering rich and vibrant hues, precise registration, a ashy, bright white 3-quarter frame, centering a forgivable sliver low of center and four sharp corner tips are evidence to bolster our claim of a complete absence of surface wear. It is not surprising that this card nds itself near the top of the record books (much like the man himself) with only four at the Mint level with not a single specimen grading higher. Starting Bid: $3,750

Teddy Ballgame plays the role of both in the 54 Topps issue and we present the closing entry, card #250. An example that was spared the wear typical of a 50+ year old piece of thin card stock. Color, registration and centering are admirable if not perfect. A high end NM+ example. Starting Bid: $375

80293 1954 Topps Al Kaline #201 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. One of eighteen at the NM/MT level with only three examples grading higher.

A surprisingly fresh card considering its true age. Starting Bid: $300

1954 Wilson Franks Baseball - #1 on the SGC Set Registry.


The Wilson Franks Baseball series were designed as impressively as the Topps cards of the same year but that is where the similarity ends. They share a level of scarcity and desirability that is unequalled by any other 1950s card promotion. The following SGC-graded single cards (plus a group lot in our sets section) represent the #1 entry on the SGC Set Registry with a collective 78.8 GPA.

80295 1954 Wilson Franks Ted Williams SGC 88 NM/MT 8 - Highest SGC Grade Known! For a brief span during the spring and summer of 1954, packages of Wilson Franks hot dogs came paired with now highly prized 2-5/8 x 3-3/4 baseball cards, each bearing the likeness of one of the more talented and admired players of the 1950s era. The brief, 24-man roster is spiced up with names like Campanella, Fox and Feller but none generate the reverence and awe of the name Theodore Samuel (Ted) Williams. If you wanted a Ted Williams card in the summer of 1954 your options were limited. Although Topps wisely honored him with both the rst and last card of their standard production, legal issues would limit Teds availability from Bowman, leaving only this severely stunted regionally circulated premium to provide an opportunity to acquire a card of Teddy Ballgame. When you consider that to date only slightly in excess of 325 cards of this issue have passed through SGCs grading service, whereas the Topps issue of the same year has seen thirty-ve times that amount encapsulated, it becomes clear just how unquestionably scarce this beautiful series truly is. This astounding representation of the great Ted Williams takes us one step further toward the pinnacle of the elite, ranking as one of only two such cards to rest at the Near-Mint to Mint level, with not a single card above. The surface is simply awless. Centering is masterful, and the corners as strong as the day it rolled o the presses. The verso is equal to the face in quality and emotional presence. You can rest assured that a 1954 Wilson Franks Ted Williams that tops this one simply may not exist. Of the 35 examples of this treasured portrayal validated by SGC, just two copies proudly bear a SGC 88 NM/MT 8 label. (None has been graded higher.) We could enter into a lengthy round of superlatives for every point of referencelethally pointed corners, full measure of original surface gloss, an incredibly deep full-gure portrait thanks to precise print registration, etc. Our picture is well worth at least the 1,000 words we spare you. This card is undeniably one of the premier gems hobbyists have to pursue. No small testimonial considering no era of card production can compare to the 1950s. Suitable to grace one of the hobbys nest 50s assemblies! Starting Bid: $7,500

80296 1954 Wilson Franks Bob Feller SGC 96 Mint 9 - The Highest SGC Example! This amazing collectible has capitalized on its productions generous dimensions, colors that resonate a kinetic energy, and a clean and thoughtful design to yield one of the hobbys most attering portrayals of Cleveland Indians reballer Bob Feller. The beyond-spectacular preservation quality enjoyed by this showpiece example aside, the Wilson Franks series in lesser, that is to say, most instances starkly illuminates the last fty years-worth of evolution in trading card distribution. Prior to the advent of cards recognition as keepsakes best maintained in attractively uncirculated condition, distributors seemed almost to nd joy in agellating their wares. Cards bounced from production lines, stued into product, constrained in illtting packages all of these circumstances were more often the rule than the exception. And nowhere was this inattention to the prospect of long-term survival more harshly practiced than in the methods employed by Wilson Franks, which placed cards within the greasy grasp for just a single year in 1954. Among the 328 cards from the entire Wilson Franks issue that reside in SGC holders, just one piece -this piece- reigns supreme at the very pinnacle of the releases total census as none has yet to achieve the Gem MT distinction. The next nest copy managed a more than respectable SGC 86 NM+. This Feller card, specically, has garnered the ultimate evaluation for its issue, sharing that ultimate position with no others. Barely handled Wilson Franks cards are traditionally the fuel of wild dreams and aspirations of obsessed hobbyists but we can conrm no hint of disturbance on this remarkable copy. Fellers image is impeccable on the card, and its overall appearance is extremely sharp. An extraordinary Hall of Fame representative from an always-challenging issue! Starting Bid: $3,750

80381 One of a Kind Early 20th Century Original Hand Drawn Baseball Card Set (539 Total Pieces). In all the years this writer has been involved with the hobby and the game itself, this has to be one of the most amazing presentations I have ever seen. Baseball has served as the inspiration for hundreds of essays, poems, toys, games, songs, plays, movies and of course art, ongoing for 150 years. The game is such a part of our collective subconscious that generations are thrilled by the sound of the crack of the bat one moment and yet in our cheers pay respect to the sacrice and pain of the men who in the middle of war never abandoned and from which the current game has evolved. It is that ingrained passion that inspired Otto Starnitzke to create one of the most amazing labors of love we have ever seen. Starnitzke was a native to Chicago and a life-long Cubs fan and published musician. Seemingly not content with the current card games designed to play baseball on a table top, Otto took ink to thin card stock and illustrated these 539 completely one-of-akind cards designed (we assume) to play out the game he so obviously loved. There are 140 dierent player cards including all of the greats, both famous and infamous, of the era like Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Tris Speaker, Napoleon Lajoie, Christy Mathewson, Chief Bender, Roger Bresnahan, Hal Chase, M. Brown, Honus Wagner and yes, Tinker, Evers and Chance. There are 399 additional cards devoted to baseball terms, stats and plays paired with some serious, some comical illustrated interpretations. Dates on the pieces tell us they were created circa 1910-1913, all of them approx. 2-3/16 x 3-1/8 in size. The cards were originally found in his granddaughters attic protected by the 11 x 5 x 2-1/4 Hayleys Chocolates wood box which is also included.

This very rare one-color Topps counter or window advertising card warning kids of the impending excitement of a new product where YOU CAN Develop Yourself With Only Water....

The 8-1/4 x 12-1/4 sign pictures Joel McCrea as Bualo Bill Cody and the Statue of Liberty and we can guess why one of the numerous sports subjects wasnt used but for only 1-cent, youngster could start their own photo collection. A rare early Topps ad piece and the perfect addition to the high grade complete set we have available elsewhere in this auction. Starting Bid: $200

80574 1948 Leaf Bill Fischer #7 PSA-Graded Variations (2) - One Uncatalogued! Finding a rare variation is one of the exciting aspects of collecting.

80576 1948 Leaf Mal Kutner #14 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. What is certain about the 48 Leaf series is that the inks are bright and the card stock was, shall we say economical. The corner tips wore quickly, needing little handling with the layer of white covering the front surface so susceptible to roughness when cards were cut to size. High-grade examples are scarce in the current marketplace. The pair of NM/MT corners and slightly o-center graphics are combined with two Mint corners and clean surfaces. This one of only three at the 88 NM/MT 8 level with only one higher. Starting Bid: $300

80575 1948 Leaf Johnny Lujack #13 SGC 86 NM+ 7.5. Johnny Lujack is in a club of immensely talented quarterbacks who have origins in Western Pennsylvania in common.

Lujacks greatest years were from 1943-1947 with Notre Dame where he led the ghting Irish to a trio of National Championships and was awarded the Heisman Trophy in 47. This Leaf Gum card is the rookie appearance by the College HoFer and a betting example at that. Bright colors, near precise registration (rare for the issue) and quality corners combine to earn an 86 NM+ 7.5 grade from SGC. To date, only two examples are graded higher. Starting Bid: $200

80581 1948 Leaf Sammy Baugh #22 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Highest Grade Available! One of two examples graded SGC 96 Mint 9 and we wonder if this may be a case of a resubmission. Leaf football cards are as colorful and fascinating as their baseball counterparts but are seen in noticeably lesser quantities. An absolutely, positively stunning example of HoF quarterback Sammy Baughs rookie year appearance in the 1948 Leaf issue. This is one of these cards where words like extraordinary and perfect and astounding ow in your thoughts and go from drama based rhetoric to unquestioned fact. Every element of this beautiful card is crisp and sharp from the front and back surfaces to the rst, second, third and fourth corner tips. The deep, rich colors hypnotize the viewer leaving one to wonder that if given the chance to possess just one football card of any era or of any player, this just might be that one. The 48 Leaf series is infamous for poor centering and mis-aligned print registration that often seems comical. Both critical elements here are put aside by the 45/55 centering and perfect hue alignment. The color scheme gracing the awless white waxy surface treatment leaps at the viewer and is perfectly complemented by the four extremely even sized surrounding borders which have remained a blinding white glow giving a three-dimensional eect rarely experienced elsewhere. The reverse bears a bold print strike and a surface as problem free as the front. A ner copy may never be found. Technical quality and visual presentation combine resulting nothing short of the ultimate in gridiron card collectibles. Starting Bid: $7,500

80652 Very Rare 1933/34 V288 Hamilton Gum Wax Paper Wrapper. This insanely rare wrapper is the rst we have ever oered and is one of only two we have been able to conrm. While O-Pee-Chee dominated the hockey card market in the 1930s Hamilton Gum did manage one now scarce release under their Puck Gum brand of bubble gum. The rarity of this fragile 5 x 7 piece of wax paper is easily explained by the exchange oer where kids could get a Junior League Hockey Puck in exchange for ten wrappers. The wrapper has light crease beyond the standard circulation folds. There is some slight spot staining but no tearing. An incredibly rare piece that would make for a tremendous addition to a vintage hockey collection. Starting Bid: $250 80653 1933 Sport Kings Howard Morenz #24 PSA NM 7. One of the most sought after names in the hockey collecting hobby is Howie Morenz. His career lasted for 14 seasons, almost all of those years with the Montreal Canadians. This is one of his most highly prized card collectibles. From a collection never oered for sale before, you would never guess by looking at the precise entering, amazing colors, sharp corners and bright white borders this card is actually over 75 years old. A tremendous high end copy that would look just as acceptable nestled under a label with a higher number. Starting Bid: $250

80654 1933 WWG Ice Kings Happy Day #10 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. This is one of only two example at the NM/MT level with only one grading higher. Perfect centering and four sharp corners generate the elevated assessment only two fortunate vintage hockey enthusiasts can claim to own. Terric card from a newly discovered collection. Starting Bid: $250

80655 1933 WWG Ice Kings Partial Set (18) With Clancy and Morenz. Oered is a collection of 27 dierent 1930s vintage hockey cards from three distinct series.

80656 1936 O-Pee-Chee Turk Broda #97 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 - Pop One of One with None Higher!. There is always a sense of pride when we are able to present to our bidders a new nd of vintage cards, be it a large selection or just a few cards. When the stars all align as they say, the nal result can be a complete surprise not expected by consignor or auction house. We certainly hope we can say that when the dust settles around this absolutely incredible discovery. Now a part of the raried class of the top 1.5% of the recorded 1936 O-Pee-Chee cards is this seemingly pristine copy of HoFer Turk Broda. Series D was a continuation of the 35 series with numbering starting with #97. Broda is that rst card of the series and a condition sensitive nature in the same class as a 52 Pafko and 33 Bengough. The high grade supply will never meet the demand of passionate and condition obsessed hockey specialists. Turk Broda was a key element in the success of the Toronto Maple Leafs. With Broda in the net, Stanley Cup championships were secured ve times including a three-year Hat Trick from 1947-1949. For his eorts, Broda would win a pair of Vezina Trophies and eventually be honored with entry into the Hockey Hall of Fame. A pop one-of-one condition rarity with no known higher grading example! The chances of nding a better copy are akin to winning the lottery just after being struck by lightning for the second time. This 1936 O-Pee-Chee card is as superior in every aspect as youll ever nd. One corner tip after another comes to a razor sharp point; surfaces are smooth as ice with textbook perfect centering. The die-cut stand up portion is completely intact with absolutely no breaks in the delicate die-cut that outlines the full gure portrait of a erce Broda at the ready for the next lightning fast slap shot. This card is scarcely made available at auction in any condition. This is the opportunity to acquire one of the hobbys best. Starting Bid: $10,000

80657 1936 O-Pee-Chee Howie Morenz #121 SGC 96 Mint 9 - One of Two Conrmed MINT Examples Known! Howie Morenz is the Babe Ruth of Hockey. One of the most sought after names in hockey collecting is the man whose career lasted for 14 seasons, almost all spent with the Montreal Canadians. This is one of his most highly prized card collectibles. He is as close to hockey royalty as there ever will be. His stellar career, untimely retirement and ultimate passing have elevated the man to legendary status. Who could have foreseen when this card appeared that just one year later the NHL would organize an All-Star game to benet the family of the now late superstar. This is one of only two cards to have miraculously survived with barely a sign of ever being touched by human hands and to now be recognized with a 96 MINT 9 label by SGC. The PSA census does not show any example above the near-mint to mint level. With not a single aw of note, this rare Mint 1936 O-Pee-Chee is a betting tribute to one of the most dominant players to ever strap on the skates. For the unbeliever, we will conrm the following: surfaces are without blemish or physical imperfection; corners are razor sharp, the adjective applies to all four and not a stray spec of printers ink to be found. The ultimate copy for the most advanced hockey collection. Starting Bid: $7,500

One of the premier hockey cards from the V356 World Wide Gum hockey series featuring HoFer King Clancy. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, this is the only copy to achieve this elevated assessment with none higher. And what an amazing card it is. Quite possibly the rst MINT 9 except for one small dot of staining on the front (right border) and the reverse (covered by the 9 in 1903).

Any opportunity to acquire the rookie card of one of the greatest hockey players ever to take to the ice should not be taken lightly. From his rookie season, Howe quickly dominated his sport and one can only imagine his success in a dierent era. Graphics rest a sliver away from perfection both vertically and horizontally. One corner has some wear at the tip, the three others are all high quality. Regardless of condition or status, this card is to hockey collectors what the 52 Mantle is to baseball fans. An very admirable example from the earliest days of Howes career. Starting Bid: $2,000

80701 1979/80 O-Pee-Chee Hockey Unopened Wax Box (48 packs) - Gretzkys Rookie Year! Ask any 1,000 hockey card enthusiasts what box from the last 50 years they would want to own and the answer from 999 (because there is always one) will be 1979/80 O-Pee-Chee edition. Do we even need to say why? If so, its the rookie card of all-time great Wayne Gretzky. The 48 unopened, 20-cent wax packs share the same blue border as do the 14 cards which reside in each untouched gem. The series does include HoFers like Gordie Howe (#175) and Bobby Hull (#185) plus numerous other stars and superstars, teams and League Leaders but none compare to card #18, the pinnacle in rookie card appearances. One can only imagine how many possibly Mint condition cards these treasured packs could yield. With the popularity of Gretzky it is safe to say unopened material from this exclusively Canadian series is very scarce and immensely desirable. The roughly 8 x 7 x 2 box does have the top panel separated from the base but still presents well with the forty-eight wax packs presenting at the NM to NM/MT range. Could you resist the urge to open them? This writer certainly couldnt. An incredible addition to any hockey collection. Starting Bid: $2,000

While Philly Gum was mainly known for football cards, they were a force in the non-sports arena as well. This set covered the critical events of World War II.

80821 1966 Topps Batman - Riddler Back High Grade Complete Set (38) Plus Wrapper and Decoder.

80822 1966 Topps Comic Book Foldees Complete Set (44), Display Box and Wrapper. The 1966-67 Topps Comic Book Foldees series is quite an odd concept, one that long-time card collector Woody Gelman borrowed from a 19th Century tobacco card set. The cards are 4-3/4 x 2-1/2 tri-panels with diecut perforations and stamped joint impressions that allow for the interchanging of head and/or body sections from one image to another, creating nine dierent possible image combinations on each card! If you wanted to see Superman with the half-torso and legs of Gandhithis was the set for you! The Foldees are very colorful and the center panels feature 44 of the DC Comics heroes and villains. The nature of this set makes unfolded fully intact panels pretty tough to nd. This lot oers the complete 44-card set, a 5-cent wax paper wrapper and an original display box. The brightly colored box presents close to NM with just a few light creases in the top panel and one small area of surface loss, the wrapper presents EX-MT with usual fold lines and the set grades EX/MT to NM with some NM-MT and four lesser. This is a very hard set to complete, let alone at this level of quality. Starting Bid: $150

80823 1966 Topps Green Hornet Stickers High Grade Complete Set (44) Plus Wrapper. Probably from being distracted by the upcoming debut of the campy Batman TV show, Greenway (Topps) let the license for the same production companys more serious Green Hornet adaptation slip through their ngers. By the time the execs at Topps realized their mistake, their competitor Donruss had already signed for the exclusive rights to issue cards. Legal technicalities allowed Topps to gain exclusive license to issue not cards but stickers with their gum instead. The resulting set proved to be one of the most colorful and attractive of the time. The wrapper grades out at the EX level with normal folds and light creasing. This is a surprisingly high grade complete set of this condition sensitive issue. Highlights include: Graded Cards - PSA GEM MINT 10: 2 cards, #s 19 and 24; PSA MINT 9: 2 cards, #s 21 and 30; PSA NM-MT 8: 1 card, #20; PSA EX 5: 1 card, #40.

80824 1966 Topps Superman High Grade Complete Set (66) Plus Wrapper.

The wrapper presents at the EX level with the normal folds and light creasing. A total of 6 cards have been graded by PSA. Highlights include: Graded - PSA MINT 9: 2 cards, #s 13 and 20; PSA NM-MT 8: 4 cards, #s 5, 9, 14 and 23. Grades 56% NM to NM/MT, 44% EX to EX/MT (some lesser). Starting Bid: $100

80825 1966 Topps Superman Counter Display Box and 24 Five-Cent Wax Packs! Oered is a counter display box plus 24 unopened packs of Superman trading cards, issued by Topps in 1966. There certainly is no doubt about the popularity of the 1950s Superman series which aired from 1952-1958, seeing as this series came out some seven years after the show stopped making original episodes. The eye-catching, primary colored box advertising Superman Cards portrays George Reeves as the Man of Steel and oers the added enticement to Watch Superman on T.V. The dicult to nd counter box displays nicely but and has its the top panel separated from the base and one corner split (far left corner in the image), the back panel is creased and bowing. The 5-cent, wax paper packs are gum-less and each still houses ve 46-year old fresh from the factory cards. Each pack has a pair of indents into the right side and judging by the consistent nature they seem to be factory induced. This anomaly may explain why these packs remained untouched for almost half of a century as unopened material from this popular series is quite dicult to nd today. Starting Bid: $300

For over 40 years the crew of the USS Enterprise has entertained us with their exploits of deep space travel and alien interaction.

80828 1919 Grover Cleveland Alexander & Christy Mathewson Signed Baseball. Two of the greatest pitchers of the Dead Ball Era are likewise among the toughest of prey for autograph hunters, so to encounter both sharing space upon a single horsehide panel is about as shocking a baseball development as this seasons American League wild card chase. This pair shared much more than mastery of the mound and inaugural class Hall of Fame credentials, however, as each was profoundly aected by his recent World War I service. Mathewson had been accidentally gassed during a training exercise in France, the catalyst for the tuberculosis that would ultimately claim his life. Alexander was rendered partially deaf by an exploding shell in France, returning to the United States suering from shell shock and epileptic seizures. Quite possibly this ball dates to an event recognizing their service, or perhaps simply a meeting of the Giants (for whom Mathewson was a coach in 1919) and the Cubs (for whom Alexander pitched). We must report that Mathewsons signature has been expertly enhanced, and his notation below the autograph (likewise enhanced) is interrupted by a loss of the leathers top layer. The Alexander autograph below remains original though, and rates 5/10 with a small divot to the rst letter. The other panels exhibit similar areas of damage to the hide but no other autographs.

80829 1920 Chicago White Sox Baseball with Six of The Eight Men Out. Perhaps second only to the story of the Babes Called Shot in apocryphal baseball history is that of the meeting of Shoeless Joe Jackson and a young boy on the steps of Chicagos Cook County courthouse on September 29, 1920. Moments earlier, Jackson and pitcher Eddie Cicotte had admitted to a grand jury that the 1919 World Series had been xed, the Cincinnati Reds underdog victory purchased by crooked gamblers. Say it aint so, the boy implored, tugging on the star outelders coat sleeve. Im afraid it is, came Jacksons pained reply. Presented is one of the rarest and most desirable team spheres in the hobby, documenting the last days of Shoeless Joe and his co-conspirators Major League tenure. Six of the notorious Eight Men Out are here, beginning with Jackson himself on the sweet spot of the OAL (Johnson) orb. Rounding out the doomed cast are Cicotte, Risberg, Williams, Weaver and McMullin. The dozen innocent that join: Eddie Collins, Faber, Schalk, Kerr, Gleason, Strunk, McClellan, Jourdan, John Collins, Wilkinson, and two indecipherable autographs. The black fountain pen signatures, including Jacksons, exhibit signs of scattered period enhancements, but they are not fully traced and project at an average strength of 4/10 to 6/10. The precise vintage of the ball is determined by both a vintage White Sox - 1920 notation in an unknown hand and the presence of Amos Strunk, whose rst year of ChiSox service was the conspirators last. An ancient coating of shellac provides the deep amber tone, and the white spots visible in our catalog imagery represent minor chipping from surface wear. It should go without saying that the listed condition concerns must be excused in light of the tremendous rarity and unparalleled historic importance of the ball, which stands as one of the most important and desirable in private hands.

80830 1923 Christy Mathewson Single Signed Baseball from Braves Opening Day. In the rough and tumble Dead Ball Era of our national pastime, when the sport was populated by brawling drunks and illiterate farmhands, Matty was recognized almost as much for his gentlemanly comportment as he was for his remarkable Hall of Fame abilities. As commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis famously eulogized the fallen baseball hero, He was an inspiration to everybody, and may we have more of his kind. The 373-game winning right-hander autographed this Ocial American League (Johnson) ball just two years before his untimely demise, the delayed result of a World War I gas attack. This early passing, and the eight and a half decades that have since elapsed, have conspired to deny the collecting hobby of all but a meager few autograph exemplars, particularly on the hide of a baseball. In fact, fewer than ve Matty singles have been oered by major auction houses in the past dozen years. The presented example is a red and black stitched ONL model, just like the ones with which the Big Six forged his Cooperstown bronze. His black fountain pen signature adorns the northern panel, projecting at a strength of 6/10 to 7/10. A notation in an unknown hand on the western panel announces Braves Field, April 17, 1923, the Opening Day of the National League season. The newly sworn president of the Braves was almost certainly honored that day, particularly considering the New York Giants team stationed in the visitors dugout for the game. One might even speculate that this was the rst pitch ball. A few scattered scus on the ball suggest this may indeed have been more than a mere souvenir, but even as nothing other than a Matty single, its collecting appeal is enormous in scope.

80831 1920s Harry Heilmann Single Signed Baseball. Take away Teddy Ballgames historic 1941 campaign and this would be the last man to bat .400, a feat Heilmann accomplished as he claimed the second of four American League batting titles with a .403 tally in 1923. Though the star outelder for the Detroit Tigers ranks twelfth on the Major League career charts with a .342 lifetime average, Heilmann inexplicably earned his Hall of Fame plaque posthumously, a full twenty years after his last at-bat. Former teammate Ty Cobb was instrumental in the enshrinement eorts. This glaring Cooperstown oversight surely contributed to the intense scarcity of available singles, and secures the status of this playing-days model as the king of that tiny supply. Heilmanns side panel black fountain pen signature rates a stellar 8.5/10, with the Ban Johnson stamping of the OAL sphere assuring a vintage no later than 1927. The ball exhibits game use, suggesting the exciting possibility that the ball played some form of signicant role in Heilmanns illustrious career. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

80832 Circa 1927 Hall of Famers Signed Baseball with Walter Johnson, Speaker. Sharing the sweet spot of the presented OAL (Johnson) ball are Walter Johnson (6/10) and Tris Speaker (3/10), two members of the 1939 Hall of Fame inaugural class who shared a dugout a single year with the 1927 Senators. Nearby we encounter Goose Goslin (5/10), Rogers Hornsby (3/10) and Nick Altrock (2/10). Barely discernible are Bucky Harris, Roger Bresnahan and Stanley Coveleski. So the theme would appear to be Senators and Giants, an odd pairing for a non-World Series season, but intriguing nonetheless. Condition is admittedly less than ideal, but the talent pool is so deep that its worth jumping in for a swim. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Starting Bid: $200

80833 Circa 1927 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The most desirable of Bambino vintage is assured by a pair of physical attributes encountered upon examination of the presented sphere. First, we note that the red and blue stitched OAL baseball bears the presidential stamping of Ban Johnson, whose American League tenure concluded with the 1927 season. Secondly, Ruths 7/10 blue fountain pen sweet spot signature is the quotation-marked variety, and Babe dropped that punctuation in 1928. The ball exhibits potential game use, which makes us dream that this may have been one of the Sultans 714 swats. A splendid representation of the hobbys most essential building block.

80834 1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. True to the Boy Scouts motto, young Dick Theis was prepared when his Iowa scouting troop set out on the trip of a lifetime during the summer of 1927, a journey from his Burlington hometown through the Midwest with stops at Abraham Lincolns birthplace in Springeld, Illinois and Sportsmans Park in the City of St. Louis. The troop traveled in the bed of an open truck, and we have images of the kids peering out over the railing adorned with signage reading Were from Burlington on the Mississippi, and Boy Scouts of America, St. Johns Troop 3, one such image printed on the front page of the Burlington Hawk Eye newspapers Lifestyles section. Theis and the trip to see the Yankees/Browns game are each mentioned within the accompanying article. But our favorite image is an original snapshot of the Babe at the railing of the ballpark, penning his autograph on the presented ball young Dick had carried with him for that very purpose. Ruths sweet spot signature rates a conservative 8/10 on this Rawlings Special League sphere, with Gehrigs equally bold oering appearing on the eastern panel. The only other writing on the ball is an R.T. (for Richard Theis) notation inked well clear of the autographs. The spectacular provenance, ideal Murderers Row vintage and remarkable condition makes this one of the most appealing Ruth/Gehrig duo balls weve encountered, and we expect competition for its ownership will be intense. A 1927 Ruth and Gehrig baseball signed for a Boy Scoutwhat could be more American than that? Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $2,500 80835 Circa 1928 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The red and blue stitching of this special Harwood League Special and the lower panel stamping advertising the Ford Safety Glass Exhibit, St. Louis on Parade lead us to estimate the date of this signing around the 1928 season, as the two-tone stitching was very popular during the era and Henry Ford was widely promoting his new innovation in auto glass at the time. Its also interesting to note that the stamping reading St. Louis on Parade, notes the town where Ruth and the Yankees would avenge their 1926 World Series loss to the Cardinals with a four-game October 1928 sweep. Perhaps it was even the Babes famous 1926 Series home run that cleared the roof of Sportsmans Park and smashed through the window of an auto dealership across the street that inspired Fords innovation. Of course, all of this is merely suppositionthe tremendous quality of the autograph is nothing but empirical fact. Even a rating of 9/10 would not do justice to the incredible boldness of the blue fountain pen ink from baseballs greatest star, elevating this piece to the ultimate heights of collecting appeal. The ball itself is lightly and uniformly toned, presenting marvelously. A piece for collectors demanding only the nest. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $3,750

80836 Circa 1929 Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig & Miller Huggins Signed Baseball. The beginning of Ernest Barnards American League presidency in 1928 and Yankees manager Miller Huggins untimely death in the nal days of the 1929 baseball season allow for just a narrow window of time that could have spawned this rare and highly desirable sphere. While the hobby always clamors for baseballs signed by the two great sluggers of the Murderers Row-era Yanks, the addition of their diminutive Hall of Fame manager ratchets up the appeal considerably. Ruth appears in 6/10 black fountain pen ink on the sweet spot, with Gehrig a point or two lighter on the southern panel, as is Huggins to the east. Any shortcomings must be overlooked in light of the supreme rarity and relevance however, this being perhaps the most coveted Yankees trio ball in the hobby. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80837 Late 1920s Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Our consignor explains that this baseball was acquired by his father in Portland, Oregon where Ruth was playing, suggesting strongly that the sphere dates to the famous Bustin Babes vs. Larrupin Lous barnstorming tour that provided the western states with a chance to see baseballs greatest stars up close and personal. The Babe occupies his standard sweet spot position on the non-ocial ball, his black fountain pen ink rating 4/10 due to some surface wear. A solid example of the hobbys fundamental building block.

80838 Late 1920s Eddie Collins Signed Baseball. A rare but imperfect single signed Collins ball launched some major reworks in the Heritage Sports April 2011 auction, commanding just over $22,700 in spirited bidding and indicating just how tough and desirable is the signature of this inaugural class Hall of Famer. This sphere is undoubtedly a prettier model, but we must report that the ball has undergone professional restoration to remove other signatures that once joined Collins All that is left now is an 8.5/10 black fountain pen sweet spot signature, provided on the supremely desirable medium of an OAL (Johnson) ball. Collins is tough on any ball, and his sweet spot positioning here makes this one the perfect addition to your Hall of Fame single collection. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80839 1929 Jimmie Foxx Signed Baseball. From 1921 through 1928, the New York Yankees had failed to claim the American League ag just twice, so the three-year reign of the Philadelphia Athletics that began in 1929 came as no small shock for the baseball world. Presented is a sweet spot signature from one of the key gures in that transfer of power, dated to just weeks after he led the Mack Men to their rst World Championship since the days of Plank and Baker. The rst man to join the Babe in the 500 Home Run Clubhouse rates a solid 7/10 on this red and blue stitched OAL ball (presumably Johnson, though stamping has faded), notated 10-28-29 in an unknown hand on the northern panel. While any Foxx single is cause for celebration, this one dating to the As Championship and Foxx rst thirty-plus home run campaign sets it apart from that narrow supply. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Starting Bid: $1,500

80840 1929-31 Babe Ruth Signed Baseball. The unique stamping of this OAL (Barnard) ball allows us to pinpoint the possible vintage of the highly collectible sphere to the second half of a six-season span in which the Bambino topped all American League long ball artists, his longest leadership streak. While the Babes 6/10 sweet spot signature presents as a single, we must report very faded writing on the western panel which appears to be other autographs. Wear on the ball suggests game use, opening up the intriguing possibility that the sphere may have met with Ruths bat as well as his pen. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80841 Circa 1930 Jimmie Foxx Signed Baseball. Only Mel Ott is a tougher target for the collector of singles from the illustrious 500 Home Run Club, but either will boast a heavy ve-gure price tag for a solo sphere as pretty as this one. Professional restoration establishes this oering as the next best thing, skillfully eliminating all signs of the autographs that once joined Double X so that his 9+/10 black fountain pen signature stands alone. The Ocial American ball has likewise shed its presidential stamping, but the red and blue stitching assures a vintage no later than 1933. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80842 Circa 1930 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball with Aaron, Banks. Long ball brilliance is the clear theme here, as the Bambino and Iron Horse, who redened the sport with their unprecedented power, are joined by the next generation of sluggers. Ruth takes sweet spot position on this Ocial American League ball (likely Harridge, but presidential stamping is illegible) in 8.5/10 blue ballpoint ink, with Gehrig equally bold on the western panel. Hammerin Hank Aaron, the man who assumed Ruths career crown, appears in 9+/10 ink on the opposing sweet spot, with Banks present on a side panel once in 7/10 ink then again in 9+/10 blue sharpie. The ball is quite dirty but none of the signatures are aected, indicating the ball was almost certainly used in a Depression-era Yankees game before its presentation to the rst two signers.

80843 Circa 1930 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Its a signature so bold the center elder could read it if the ball was set down upon home plate. The Bambinos black fountain pen autograph rates a solid 9/10 under a slightly crazed coating of shellac which deserves much of the thanks for the impressive survival of Ruths essential signature. The Amateur League ball exhibits moderate toning and a degree of handling wear, but our catalog imagery should properly indicate that the aesthetics remain compelling. Without shellac and placed upon an ocial ball, this signature would be comparable to that of a $50,000 model, so we expect no shortage of interest in this oering. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80844 Circa 1930 Rabbit Maranville Single Signed Baseball. Soon after having been named manager of the 1925 Cubs, he made his rounds through a Pullman car dumping water on sleeping players heads and bellowing, No sleeping under Maranville management, especially at night! Despite his irreverent nature, the tiny inelder is remembered as one of the eras top talents, earning a Hall of Fame plaque for his eorts. Sadly, that day came months after his passing in January of 1954, limiting the availability of his important autograph to the collecting hobby. This example puts most other from that small supply to shame, Maranvilles unpersonalized sweet spot signature registering at a marvelous 8.5/10 in fountain pen ink. The Princeton League ball that serves as its home is modestly and evenly toned, enhancing the vintage avor. A true hobby rarity for the discerning collector. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

The Babe occupies his preferred sweet spot position with an oversized 5/10 oering while his ery nemesis Cobb signs even larger to the south in equally bold ink. Speaker to the north may be a point lighter than his buddies but is still readily legible, displaying nicely. Ball is a National Amateur Baseball Federation model.

Foxx black fountain pen sweet spot signature has mellowed slightly with age, but still projects at a very conservative 6/10. The Ocial League ball that serves as its home is moderately and evenly toned with some inconsequential spotting near the signature, with the black and red stitching eectively mimicking the Ocial National League balls of the era. A more than respectable representation of a ball appearing on many a hobbyists wish list. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

80847 1932 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball Fouled O by Ruth. A charming notarized letter of provenance from the family of this spheres original owner reads, in part: The ball has been a legend in our family for as long as I can remember. Specically, after Spring Training and on their way North to begin the 1932 baseball season, the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Yankees both stopped o in Memphis Tennessee to play an exhibition game against each other at Russword Park. It was the rst professional game of its kind that my Father ever attended and it became even more memorable to him when, during the game, Babe Ruth hit a foul ball into the stands that my Father caught. After the game, my Dad went down to the eld and asked both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig to please autograph his baseball which they kindly did. This is that very baseball. The Harwood Ocial League Ball perfectly mimics an OAL model with its red and blue stitching, with the Babe occupying his standard sweet spot position in 7/10 black fountain pen ink. Gehrig is to the east, a point bolder. An unknown hand has penned a 1932 notation. A particularly appealing example of the hobbys most popular duosigned ball. Letter of provenance from family.

The Bambinos black fountain pen ink signature occupies the sweet spot with marvelous 9/10 boldness, essentially unchanged from the date of its application. The ball is non-ocial, but its duo-tone stitching eectively mimics Ocial spheres of the Babes playing days. A couple very light surface abrasions barely merit a mention and are only apparent upon the closest inspection. One of the crispest, cleanest Ruth singles available. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80852 1930s Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. It has been said that for every one hundred Babe Ruth singles, youll nd one solo Lou Gehrig, and even that may be overstating the supply of the latter. After all, Gehrig was quoted as saying, Im not a headline guy. I know that as long as I was following Ruth to the plate I could have stood on my head and no one would have known the dierence. Though this is more of an illustration of Gehrigs tremendous modesty than a tongue-in-cheek statement of fact, it is certainly undeniable that Lou just did not receive a fraction of the autograph requests that Ruth did, leaving collectors almost seven decades after his passing to scrap for the scant few available singles. Here we present a particularly attractive alternative, a ball once multi-signed but restored to leave only Gehrigs writing behind. He oers a rather lengthy inscription before his all-important autograph, writing, To Paul, With Kindest Personal Regards, Cordially, Lou Gehrig. The fountain pen ink survives at a consistent 7/10 level throughout. The non-ocial ball exhibits some mild wear and toning, but this only minimally aects the signed panel, and to little distraction.

80853 1936 Arky Vaughan Single Signed BaseballThe Only Known Example. The Heritage reputation for unearthing exceedingly rare single signed baseballs swells yet again with the presentation of this specimen from the Hall of Fame shortstop for the Pirates and Dodgers, whose drowning death at age forty in 1952 precipitated a modern dearth of autographs in any format. This, in fact, is the very rst single signed baseball presented by a major auction house of which we are aware, as our database of the past twelve years comes up empty. Vaughans black fountain pen ink traverses two panels and the sweet spot, reading Arky Vaughan, Aug. 10, 1936, Pittsburgh 4, New York 3. The signature rates a technical 4/10 while the writing is a couple points stronger, and the leather of the ball (likely an ONL model but having shed its visible stamping) is toned and slightly weathered, but these condition concerns must be forgiven in respect of the intense scarcity. The wait for the next one could be another decade or more, possibly forever. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

80854 1938 Monte Pearson No-Hit Game Used Baseball Signed by Gehrig & Others. It took just one game for the Babe to consecrate his House with a homer, but fteen years for a pitcher to tame its massive connes with a no-hit performance. It came in a twelve to nothing drubbing of the visiting Cleveland Indians on August 27, 1938 as the Yanks were turning onto the nal straightaway en route to another World Championship. Pearson autographs the eastern panel and we have ever reason to believe it is his printing just below that announces No Hit Game, Aug. 27, 1938, N.Y. vs. Cleveland. Gehrigs 9/10 autograph claims the sweet spot of the OAL (Harridge) ball. Other signers include Rung, Dickey, DiMaggio (3/10), Gordon and Henrich. Unless otherwise noted, all signatures rate 7/10 or better. This is the rst game ball weve ever encountered from this historic Bronx occasion, so serious Yankees collectors should take note.

It has been said that for every one hundred Babe Ruth singles, youll nd one solo Lou Gehrig, and even that may be overstating the supply of the latter. After all, Gehrig was quoted as saying, Im not a headline guy. I know that as long as I was following Ruth to the plate I could have stood on my head and no one would have known the dierence. Though this is more of an illustration of Gehrigs tremendous modesty than a tongue-in-cheek statement of fact, it is certainly undeniable that Lou just did not receive a fraction of the autograph requests that Ruth did, leaving collectors six decades after his passing to scrap for the scant few available singles. Here we encounter a specimen which ups the ante even further, supplying rare sweet spot positioning atypical of a man whose humility usually drew him to the side panel even on an otherwise blank ball. His black fountain pen ink survives with a conservative 6/10 boldness, unmistakable and stylishly scripted. The red-stitching of the OAL (Harridge) ball that serves as the ideal medium assures post-1933 production, as Gehrig was stepping out of the shadow of the Babe where he had labored for a decade. A marvelous rarity far too often absent from even the nest private collections. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $3,750

The sphere remains much as it did when the Babe held it in his history-making hands, with the passing years toning the leather to a creamy vanilla hue, the boldness of the ink all but unchanged over the passing decades, easily a 9/10.

80858 Circa 1940 Mel Ott & Joe DiMaggio Signed Baseball. Were undecided on which of the unique factors of this ball provides the greater appeal. Some might argue that the rare combination of star Big Apple sluggers Ott and DiMaggio is the big draw, while others would insist that the placement of Ott alone on a side panel, allowing display as a tough and valuable single, is what makes it a winner. The Giants legend appears at an average strength of 7/10, while Joltin Joe trails behind at 2/10.

Big Poison is one of the toughest Major Leaguers to live past the Second World War for collectors of Hall of Fame singles, and while this Ocial Nebraska State League ball does bear two other autographs on its hide, Waner convincingly presents as a single even without professional restoration. Heritage auctioned a genuine single in April for over $15,000, so this becomes a mighty attractive alternative for the savvy collector. Rudy York and Jack Price are the other passengers on this orb.

80860 Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. While the Babe Ruth single signed baseball is considered a mandatory component of any serious collection, the most serious collectors are only satised with specimens such as this. The Bambinos black fountain pen ink survives with remarkable 9+/10 boldness on the sweet spot of the provided OAL (Harridge) ball, the ink just as dark as the day it was applied. The enormous visual appeal of the essential relic is immediately apparent, and a few small nicks to the horsehide and the fading Harridge stamping do nothing to undermine the issue. A couple of small at spots at the north and south poles of the ball are the result of storage in a display case, but youll only notice them if you seek them out.

This ONL (Frick) sphere is one of the few known to have been birthed upon the set of that lm, and the rst weve encountered mounted on a Compliments of Christy Walsh/Pride of the Yankees blotter, indicating that the ball was a gift from the pioneer sports agent whose star clients included Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. The former appears on the balls side panel, while the widow of the latter adorns the sweet spot with a bold yet hearbreaking brief inscription and autograph in 10/10 ink. Joining the Babe (8/10) on the southern panel are former Yankees teammate Bill Dickey and Academy Award nominee Gary Cooper, each rating 6/10 on the spheres lightly toned hide. Completing the roster of signers are director Sam Wood, producer Sam Goldwyn, actor Walter Brennan and ballplayer Babe Herman, each rating 8/10 or better.

We begin with the ideal medium, the ONL (Frick) model baseball that greeted Robinson upon his groundbreaking Dodgers debut. The ball maintains a gorgeous creamy vanilla tone with bold stamping. Robinsons side panel signature is unpersonalized, and rates a staggering 9+/10, the autograph as bold as the day it was applied. A notation in an unknown hand dates the ball on the sweet spot to Aug. 29, 1948, a day the Bums took both halves of a doubleheader at Sportsmans Park, where Robinson encountered the ugliest protests while traveling with the Dodgers in the early years.

80873 Circa 1950 Multi-Signed Baseball with Hornsby, Paul Waner. We arent certain what event brought this unusual signed sphere into existence but we wish wed been there. Plenty of Cooperstown residents are present among the fteen signers, notably Roush, Carey, Paul Waner, Musial, Stengel and Hornsby. The tough and desirable Gil Hodges is present as well. All signatures rate a solid 8/10 or better, and the ball is toned with faded stamping but still presents well. Pre-certied by PSA/ DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $200

80874 Circa 1950 Connie Mack Single Signed Baseball. His Major League career as player and then manager spanned sixty-six seasons, so its doubtful there is any man in history who attended more Big League ballgames than Mack. Despite this fact, hes still far from common on single signed baseballs, and here we present a rock-solid example. Adding to the scarcity is the lack of personalization, simply a sweet spot signature rating 8/10 in vintage blue fountain pen ink. The ONL (Giles) ball that serves as its home exhibits a few scattered areas of foxing, but the sphere still presents very well and survives as a tting tribute to the Tall Tactician.

80875 The Finest Shoeless Joe Jackson Signed Baseball on Earth. It was a story that sounded too good to be true when rst reported to us by the son of Dick Bouknight, remembered in baseball history as the King of Swat of the Appalachian League before a tour of WWII duty interrupted what seemed a probable path to the Majors. Upon his return to the States, Bouknight resumed his baseball career as both a player and manager in the Tri-State League, which in those days included the Greenville Spinners, representatives of Shoeless Joe Jacksons South Carolina hometown. While the younger Bouknight admits his father rarely spoke of his baseball days, he does recall being shown this ball as a boy, his pop expressing how he had approached Jackson for an autograph, and how slowly the functionally illiterate Black Sox conspirator worked the pen as he wrote. Today Jacksons side panel autograph survives without a hint of its six decades of age, a perfect 10/10 rating not an overstatement of the facts. Directly opposite Jackson, in the same bold blue ink, we nd contemporary legend Cy Young, whose autograph lls the full panel of this Ocial Tri-State League sphere. Three other signatures join this iconic pair in black ink, most notably Ben Paschal, who managed a North Carolina semi-pro team in the years following his service to the Murderers Row era New York Yankees. Even the most casual baseball autograph collector is well aware of just how rare is the autograph of the fabled Shoeless Joe. That rarity increases exponentially when narrowed to horsehide examples, and that fact should not be lost due to the appearance of two within this Signature auction. Lightning does occasionally strike twice, but you can rest assured it will never ash nearly so brightly as with the representation oered here. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80876 Early 1950s Mel Ott Signed Baseball. Its likely a $20,000 ball in this condition as a true single, and only you and your bank account will be able to tell the dierence. Professional restoration has eliminated any sign of the other signatures which once joined this tough Hall of Famer on the presented Oakland Oaks souvenir ball, giving it the appearance of the prettiest Ott single youll ever encounter. Not a blemish is to be found on the gorgeous relic from Otts days as a Pacic Coast League manager, and his sweet spot signature is a bold 9+/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,500

80878 Mid-1950s Chuck Dressen Signed Baseball. The manager of the 1952 and 1953 National League Champion Brooklyn Dodgers likely autographed this OAL (Harridge) ball during his tenure of service to the Washington Senators, his single foray into the Junior Circuit during Harridges presidential rule. His blue ink sweet spot signature registers at a strength of 9/10, aided in part by a vintage coating of shellac. A second signature is hidden directly opposite, so discreet that we didnt even notice it at rst. This is as close to a Dressen single as you can get without going all the way. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $150

80877 1955 Cy Young Single Signed Baseball Presented to Woody Hayes Son. Its a little known fact that the legendary coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes was a center for the Newcomerstown High School football team in the Ohio village where Cy Young spent the nal years of his life. Despite a forty-six year age dierence, the two shared a twenty-year friendship that ended only with Youngs death in 1955. Just a few months before Young passed, Hayes brought his nine-year old son Steven to the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies for Joe DiMaggio and Frank Baker, where the boy was introduced to a man his father described as the greatest pitcher of all time. Presented is the younger Hayes memento of that brief encounter, an Ocial American Association sphere bearing one of the career victory leaders nal autographs. Youngs arthritic scripting rates a stellar 9/10, and the ball is notated Cooperstown, NY, July 25, 1955 in young Stevens hand. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,500

80879 1950s Dwight D. Eisenhower Single Signed Baseball. He was one of the most inuential gures in twentieth century American history, riding the groundswell of public support earned from his position as Supreme Commander of the D-Day invasion force to two terms in the Oval Oce. While his autograph is coveted by millions who still like Ike, the appearance of his signature on a baseball sets this oering high above the rest. The collecting of Presidential single signed baseballs draws hobbyists not scared o by a challenge, and that challenge grows signicantly with each subsequent step backwards in time. Eisenhowers side panel signature rates 7/10 on the presented ONL (Frick) ball, likely acquired at an Opening Day celebration where the President tossed the rst pitch. A splendid keepsake from truly Happy Days in baseball and America at large. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

80880 Circa 1956 Emmett Kelly Single Signed Baseball. His entertainment career began as a trapeze artist in 1923, but Kelly would become famous as Weary Willie, a hobo clown who soon became the most recognizable gure in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. From 1942 through 1955 Kelly traveled with the big top, but famously left the show in 1956 to serve as the mascot Bum of the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team. One would suspect that this ONL (Giles) ball dates to that period. The famous clown provides a 9+/10 blue ink side panel inscription, Best Wishes from Emmett Kelly, on this apparently game used sphere, establishing it as the nest of its rare breed. A marvelous addition to any serious Brooklyn Dodgers collection. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $375

80882 1960 Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball. It was the Peachs nal Christmas eve of his life when he autographed this non-ocial ball for a fan, providing a blue ink side panel inscription reading, To Ralph Crutcheld from Ty Cobb, 12/24/60. The ball remains marvelously white and clean, providing solid contrast for the writing which has mellowed over the years to a 6/10 level. A solid representation from the rst man honored in the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $750

80881 1959 Harry S. Truman Single Signed Baseball. Six years after returning to his hometown at the close of his Presidential term, our nations thirty-third Commander in Chief autographed this OAL (Harridge) ball for a young admirer. Over a half century later it survives as possibly the nest of its breed, the sweet spot inscription Harry S. Truman, 2-27-59, Independence, Mo. displaying with stunning 10/10 black ink boldness. Our catalog image will display the start of a handwritten Harry Truman from the original owner on the northern panel, an admittedly redundant attribution applied in blue ballpoint. It causes little distraction, however, from the booming presence of this tough Presidential single. Precertied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500

80883 1950s-60s National League MVPs Multi-Signed Baseball with Clemente. Theme balls are all the rage now in the collecting hobby, but the compilation of 500 home run hitters and perfect game pitchers is a relatively new phenomenon. The original owner of the presented ONL (Giles) ball was the Abner Doubleday of this trend, and here we present Exhibit A. Each appearing upon his own side panel, four Senior Circuit standouts provide an autograph and the date of his MVP award. Best, of course, is the tough Clemente, who adds 1966 to his 8.5/10 blue ink signature. Rounding out the cast are Don Newcombe (1956), Frank Robinson (1961) and Ken Boyer (1964). Boyer is 6/10, the others 9/10. The ball exhibits some minimal foxing but presents very well. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500

80884 Circa 1960 Jimmie Foxx Single Signed Mini Baseball. While Foxx resounding successes on the diamond earned him Cooperstown immortality, the story changed dramatically once the star slugger hung up his spikes, battling unemployment, poverty and a nasty drinking problem throughout his post-baseball years. This diminutive little sphere, slightly larger than a golf ball, was a souvenir from his short-lived eatery, as its Jimmy Foxx Restaurant stamping indicates. Foxx made one patrons night by autographing the sweet spot in 8/10 blue ink, creating what would easily be a $20,000+ single at standard issue dimensions. An intriguing rarity, and a unique opportunity to ll that empty spot in your 500 Home Run or Hall of Fame single collection. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

80886 1963 Roberto Clemente Signed Portrait Baseball. Presenting as a 1963 Pittsburgh Pirates team signed baseball for the majority of its forty-eight year history, the listed ONL (Giles) ball was recently transformed into the beauty you see before you, professionally stripped of all signatures but the Hall of Fame outelders and adorned with a skilled portrait on the southern panel. Clementes sweet spot positioning was surely the inspiration for this transformation, and his blue ballpoint oering rates a solid 8/10. Only the most eagle-eyed of hobbyists will be able to distinguish this one from a genuine Clemente single, which would bring $10,000+ in comparable condition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500 80887 1960s Lefty Grove Single Signed Baseball. This superstar southpaw was a key ingredient in Connie Macks second great dynasty in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and pitched the nal game of his Hall of Fame career for the Boston Red Sox the day that Ted Williams elevated his 1941 batting average to .406. Here we nd his bold (9/10) black ink signature on the sweet spot of a non-ocial sphere. Despite living almost thirty years beyond his 1947 Hall of Fame induction, Grove is rarely seen in this format so bidders should pay close attention. It may be a while before a comparable specimen makes its way to the auction block. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500 80888 1960s Dizzy Dean Single Signed Baseball. The ringleader of the historic Gashouse Gang of 1934, Dean was once quoted as saying, Anybody whos ever had the privilege of seeing me play knows that I am the greatest pitcher in the world. While some might disagree with this assessment, theres certainly no question that Ol Diz is well deserving of his Cooperstown plaque, and that any autograph collection would be the better for the addition of this Ocial Western Carolina League ball, sporting a 9/10 side panel signature. The ball exhibits light, even toning and presents wonderfully. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $300

80885 Circa 1960 Charles Red Rung Single Signed Baseball. A very tough single from the New York Yankees Hall of Fame hurler who shared a dugout with Ruth, Gehrig and DiMaggio during his Bronx service. But while the sluggers were swarmed by autograph seekers, the same wasnt true of this red-headed hurler, whose population of singles is dwarfed by each, even the rare Iron Horse. Posthumously honored by the Yanks in 2004 with a Monument Park plaque, Rung applied a 9+/10 black ink signature decades earlier to the sweet spot of the provided Energizer League Ball. The original recipients handwritten notation listing Rungs career stats is applied directly opposite the signature and remains invisible upon display. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

80889 Mid-1960s Early Apollo Astronauts Signed Baseball with Grissom. Extraordinary high-grade sphere derives from the personal collection of Major Leaguer Gene Oliver, who was fascinating by the burgeoning space program and took every opportunity to visit the NASA compounds in Florida and Houston when his schedule allowed. His widows included letter of provenance describes a personal friendship with Gus Grissom, the rarest of the four autographs on this ball, and how upset her husband had been when Grissom perished in a 1967 training accident. Grissoms blue ink signature presents as a single on this ONL (Giles) ball, though further exploration reveals the trio of Alan Shepard, Scott Carpenter and Wally Schirra, each applied in the same faultlessly bold blue ink. A truly stellar keepsake, in more ways than one. Letter of provenance from Marilyn Oliver. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500 80890 1960s Dizzy & Day Dean Dual-Signed Baseball. Just the sound of their names is enough to inspire a smile, but the emotion grows exponentially for those few who can remember their exploits as the top aces for the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals, best remembered today as the World Championship Gashouse Gang. They share side panel space on the presented Little League ball, Dizzy and Da y rating 8/10 and 6/10 respectively in blue ballpoint ink. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

80891 Late 1960s Roger Maris Single Signed Baseball, PSA Mint 9. Its the nest Maris single on earth, and thats not just our opinion. Check the PSA/DNA database and youll nd a population of one for Mint 9 singles from the rst Babe buster. This is it. The ball takes no shortcuts en route to the Championship either, as this is actually a playing-days model, applied to the ONL (Giles) model baseball that bade farewell to Rajah with the 1968 St. Louis Cardinals, and not a post-career model. Remarkably, the ball remains as white as a supermodels smile, and the blue ballpoint side panel inscription, Best Always, Roger Maris, is likewise beyond reproach. We see time and time again that the top-condition rarities serve as the best investments, and we dont see this Maris ball giving up its crown any time soon. Full grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Mint 9.

80892 Circa 1969 Gil Hodges Single Signed Baseball. A true blue Dodger, Hodges spent close to two decades of his life in service of the squad on both coasts before closing out his career as a player for the new Mets franchise, and later as their manager. Yet despite this long tenure on the Major League Baseball diamond, singles from this fan favorite are few and far between. We oer here a nice example from the small available supply, a side panel inscription reading, Best Wishes, Gil Hodges.

The Yankees version of Jackie Robinson, the star catcher was the rst African-American in pinstripes, and helped to bring six World Championships to the Bronx as a player and coach. His side panel inscription on the provided non-ocial ball, To Tony, Best Wishes, Elston Howard, is a bona de 10/10 in black felt tip ink.

His 1922 campaign, punctuated by a stunning .420 batting average and league-leading totals in hits (246), stolen bases (51) and triples (18), is widely considered one of the best individual single seasons in baseball history. Almost a half century later, Gorgeous George autographed this baseball for a fan, applying his blue ballpoint ink signature to the sweet spot and March 9, 1970 to the panel just above. The Ocial Tri-County League ball exhibits scattered foxing, but this remains clear of the all-important autograph. All writing is 9/10. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

80895 Circa 1970 Thurman Munson Signed Baseball. The most gorgeous Munson single signed baseball on earth? Well, almost. Full disclosure: this ball began life as an early 1970s partial Yankees team ball, and professional restoration has removed all signatures but the future Captains, leaving Munsons blue ballpoint oering to stand alone in its 9+/10 side panel glory. Its home is the ideal medium for the tragic catchers autograph, an Ocial American League baseball from the Joe Cronin presidency. Munson is one of the toughest singles of the sixteen retired jersey numbers honored in Monument Park. Some minor foxing on the opposite side from the autograph will be invisible upon display.

80896 Circa 1970 Roberto Clemente Signed Baseball.

80897 1970s Roger Maris Single Signed Baseball. I never wanted all this hoopla, Maris once explained. All I wanted is to be a good ball player and hit twenty-ve or thirty homers, drive in a hundred runs, hit .280 and help my club win pennants. I just wanted to be one of the guys, an average player having a good season. Any dreams of relative anonymity were ended by his October 1, 1961 blast which made him the most controversial Home Run King until Hank Aaron took that title for his own successful assault on the Babe. Rajahs 9+/10 blue ballpoint signature takes up uncommon and desirable sweet spot residence on this OAL (MacPhail) sphere, establishing it as one of the nest Maris singles in the hobby.

This is particularly true of single signed baseballs, so we expect strong interest in this ne example, boasting an inscription applied to the side panel of a Worth Ocial League ball.

Though the New York Yankees of the 1920s are best recalled for the unprecedented slugging power of Ruth and Gehrig, Championships arent won on batting alone. One of the top aces from those Murderers Row days takes sweet spot honors on this non-ocial sphere, with both the autograph and horsehide garnering 8/10 ratings from PSA/DNA for the combined NM-MT 8 grade.

An included 1995 certicate of authenticity pegs derivation of this sphere to Mickeys Place in Cooperstown, a shop owned by Tom Catal, who was the Micks rst agent for the burgeoning memorabilia market. Catal is considered the leading source for quality Mantle signed goods, and this OAL (MacPhail) sphere should be considered particularly desirable for its provenance. Mantles sweet spot signature is a awless 9+/10, as is his M&M buddy Roger Maris on the southern panel. The ball itself exhbits some modest toning, but the signatures are unaected.

Were seeing fewer and fewer of these duo balls on the market these days, suggesting the supply is nding permanent residence within private collections.

80914 1874 Alexander Cartwright Handwritten & Signed Check/Promissory Note. A June 3, 1953 act of the United States Congress ocially declared Alexander Joy Cartwright the inventor of the modern game of baseball, the conclusion of years of work on behalf of a small group of historians to counter Major League Baseballs assertion that it had been Abner Doubleday. Cartwright is recognized as the founder of the rst baseball team, establishing the distance between bases, and designating an inning as three outs. While the true Father of Baseball might always be a point of debate, theres no disputing the scarcity and tremendous desirability of the oered lot, one of only a handful of personal checks from Cartwright known to survive to this day. It derives from his adopted home of Hawaii, where Cartwright moved in 1849 after he headed west for the California gold rush and kept right on going. The check is entirely handwritten with no pre-printed text, and establishes a payment of $1240 to be rendered eight months in the future with no interest due. Cartwrights signature appears on the opposing side of the 3x7.5 document, where he writes Honolulu Sep 8 1874, Receipt AJ Cartwright for c/o Mr. Paiko, Nine hundred and thirty-four dollars as full payment & interest. Since most of the Cartwright material actively traded and attributed to him are, in fact, letter-press copies, true handwritten documents as this are incredibly scarce and desirable, and seldom oered. This is a rare opportunity to bring an essential, seminal autograph into your baseball collection. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $2,000

80915 Circa 1900 Morgan Bulkeley Handwritten Signed Note, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. A Civil War veteran whose brother perished in combat, Bulkeley founded the Hartford Dark Blues of the National Association of Professional Base Ball Players in 1874, soon bringing curve ball pioneer Candy Cummings into the fold. Two years after the birth of the Blues, Bulkeley took the oath as the rst president of the National League, an honor which likely secured his future Hall of Fame induction. His Cooperstown residence makes his an essential autograph, and this brief note, I am pleased to comply with your request and subscribe myself. Yours truly, MG Bulkeley, will serve nicely. PSA/DNA assigns a NM-MT 8 rating to the piece. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Starting Bid: $375

80916 1909 Detroit Tigers Team Signed Album with Cobb, Jennings. Intriguing little autograph album begins a little uninspiringly, with signatures from various members of the Department of the Interior, improves a bit with the autograph of Sam Anderson, Champion middleweight wrestler of the world, then nally hits the jackpot. Flipping from the beginning we rst encounter a 10/10 black ballpoint ink signature from Hall of Fame manager Hugh Jennings, dated Sept. 22, 1909 in his hand, just over two weeks before his club would face o with Honus Wagners Pittsburgh Pirates in one of the most noteworthy World Series in history. A single page ip reveals his team, eighteen 9/10 pencil signatures applied on the same date, stacked on facing pages for ideal display. Crawford and Cobb are side by side, and joined by the likes of McIntyre, Moriarty, Bush, Stanage, Jones, Willett, Speer and more. Team signed material from the rst decade of the twentieth century is all but non-existent, and this high-grade relic captures the most desirable of targets.

80919 1910 Joe Tinker Handwritten Signed Postcard. Fame has its perks, in this instance the ability to send a postcard with ones own face upon it.

I am waiting for you to let me know when your (sic) coming to Chicago. Love from Ruby and babies(?) your (illegible) Joe.

80921 1913 Christy (Christopher) Mathewson Signed Check for Pitching in a Pinch, PSA NM-MT 8. A brilliant and distinguished pitching career that installed him as fourth on the all-time pitching victories chart made his autograph essential, and his early death in 1925 made it exceedingly rare. But while any signature from Big Six is cause for collecting celebration, an example such as this is a true breed apart. Issued by G.P. Putnams Sons for forty-seven dollars, this August 3, 1913 check is clearly payment for Mattys authorship of Pitching in a Pinch, which was distributed by the leading publisher. The New York Giants star hurler follows banking protocol with his endorsing signature on the checks backside, signing with the Christopher Mathewson format that matches the publishers handwritten payee. Not only is this an extraordinarily rare autograph variation, but it is rendered in stunningly bold black fountain pen ink which the graders at PSA/DNA rather stingily assigned a NM-MT 8 rating. The check exhibits vertical creases from folded storage and some paper loss on verso, but these issues remain well clear of the all-important Mathewson signature. The check is encapsulated in a PSA/DNA NM-MT 8 holder, and is accompanied by a VG-EX example of Mathewsons book. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.

80922 1924 Ty Cobb Handwritten & Signed Letter Regarding World Series. While the Georgia Peach was quite generous with his correspondence during his retirement years, the availability of playing-days letters remains comparatively minuscule. This is a particularly attractive example of such, penned on Detroit Tigers team letterhead and referencing an impending Fall Classic that would gain immortality for providing Walter Johnson his sole World Championship. The text, in its entirety: Sept-23-24, Dear HelenI am going to be in Washington soon so write me here c/o Baseball Club at once your friends name and address telephone number etc. for I might be there during series and have an extra ticket and will take her to game. Best to all pardon haste, Ty. All writing is in Cobbs hand and rates 9+/10. Page exhibits original mailing folds and appears to have been trimmed at lower edge, but otherwise presents perfectly.

Alexander shakes hands with fellow Cardinal Rogers Hornsby in this marvelous 8x10 photo dating to the era of their 1926 World Championship season. A black fountain pen signature from the former, Grover C. Alexander, survives with impressive 7/10 boldness. Alexander signed photos are particularly scarce, and this unpersonalized specimen further amplies the collecting appeal. The image itself exhibits tack holes at the upper corners and some minor edge wear, but the image still presents very well and will assume almost a NRMT appearance when properly matted and framed.

80929 Circa 1930 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Album Page. They didnt get along, reported fellow Murderer on the Row, Tony Lazzeri, Lou thought Ruth was a big mouth and Ruth thought Gehrig was cheap. They were both right. Despite a chilly personal relationship for much of their time together in pinstripes, there has never been a more eective three-four combination in Major League history than the Bambino and the Iron Horse, who share eternity on the provided 2.5x4.25 album page. Ruth appears in 9+/10 black fountain pen ink, with Gehrig equally strong in pencil below. All you need is your favorite photo of the pair and the phone number of a good framing store. The rest is trophy room history. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

80932 Circa 1930 Lou Gehrig Signed Blank Business Card. His greatest record doesnt show in the book, noted New York Times sportswriter John Kieran. It was the absolute reliability of Henry Louis Gehrig. He could be counted upon. He was there every day at the ballpark bending his back and ready to break his neck to win for his side. He was there day after day and year after year. Only a tragic illness could break the Iron Horse, whose 9/10 black fountain pen signature is presented here on a blank business card (or paper slip of similar dimensions).

80931 1930 Chicago Cubs Team Signed Photograph Album from Les Bell. Platooned with Woody English as third baseman throughout the 1930 season, Bell was on the downswing of this nine-season career when he arrived at Wrigley. But clearly he quickly became popular with his new teammates, thirty of whom signed individual 4x6 portrait photographs, often with clever personal inscriptions, for inclusion in this charming little album. All of the teams Hall of Famers are present within, including Hack Wilson, Rogers Hornsby, KiKi Cuyler, George Kelly, Ray Schalk, Gabby Hartnett and manager Joe McCarthy (though the skipper appears in secretarial format). Other notables include Charlie Root, Guy Bush and Charlie Grimm. About half a dozen unsigned photos are here as well. All are the work of noted Chicago lensman George Burke, the most collectible photographer of his age. Signature quality is 9/10 or better throughout. The photos have taken on a gentle curve over the passing decades but are unharmed by this phenomenon and could easily be removed from the album and attened if desired, though we certainly would recommend leaving the album intact.

Gehrigs black fountain pen signature is a conservative 9/10, while the Bambino is an unimprovable 10/10. An unknown hand has identied each in short text to the right as Yankee 1st Base Man, and Home Run record holder respectively.

Starting Bid: $1,000 80934 1910s-40s Moe Berg Personally Owned Books with Multiple Signatures. The old joke about Berg was He can speak seven languages, but he cant hit in any of them. The Princeton-educated catcher batted .243 through fteen seasons of Major League ball, but is best remembered today for his participation in the famous 1934 Baseball Tour of Japan. Glaringly mediocre in talents when compared to fellow Tourists Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, etc., Berg had actually been summoned by the United States government to act as a spy during this excursion, justifying his presence on a team of baseball immortals. Bergs unique place in baseball history has established him as one of the most collectible non-Hall of Famers, and here we encounter a most intriguing assortment of personally owned volumes. We begin with a childhood reader, Selections from American Poetry, signed six times (5/10) on the cover, and again on interior rear cover. Joining the volume are nine pages of his Greek language homework, each bearing his personal stamp. The following volumes bear his personal stamp and various underlined passages and notations in his hand: The Japanese Spirit by Okakura-Yoshisaburo. The Great Spy Scandal by Donald Seaman. Now Ill Tell by Carolyn Rothstein (widow of Arnold Rothstein, architect of 1919 World Series scandal). Contact Mercury by Leonard H. Nason. A Concise Etymological Dictionary of the English Language (10/10 blue ink signature on inside front cover). Books exhibit quite a bit of wear with occasional damage, but writing and signatures are unaected. Finally, we have his 1938 unsigned 1099 tax form stamped by the oces of Major League Baseball.

The Washington, D.C.-based studio photographers imprint at lower left strongly suggests that this image was snapped during the term of The Big Trains service to the Senators, which ended upon his 1933 assumption of the Cleveland Indians managerial reins. His black fountain pen inscription competes for contrast but rates a technical 8/10, reading For Edgar A. Moss, Best Wishes, Walter Johnson.

Three future Hall of Famers are presented for your collecting pleasure, a relic from a Depression-era Yankees contest around the time of the Babes Called Shot. The Sultan is absent from these proceedings, but the cast of characters is still impressive: Gehrig, Sewell, Chapman, Combs, Andrews, Lary, Jorgens and Byrd. Gehrig appears in 7/10 ink, the rest (other than Andrews, who is 9/10 ink) are 9/10 pencil. The page is 4x5.5 with a horizontal center fold and minor staining at left which do little to distract.

80939 1930s Honus Wagner Signed Postcard & Cut Signature. A pair of slabbed autographs from the Old Dutchman creates a single delectable lot. Best is a 1934 postcard to a girlfriend back home in Carnegie, PA. Wagner writes from the Big Apple, referencing the image of the newly constructed Chrysler Building on the image side of the card. How would a Bldg like this look in Carnegie, he jokes. He closes his bold black ink writing with a signed Honus. We get his surname with the second half of the lot, a simple penciled Wagner clipped from an old scorecard. Both signatures rate 9/10 or better. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA. Starting Bid: $250 80938 1933-35 Walter Johnson Signed Photograph. Soulful photographic portrait of the games silver medalist in career victories can be pegged to a three-year span during which the Big Train held the managerial reins of the Cleveland Indians. The image appears to be the work of noted photographer George Burke, whose trademark balance of light and shadow is in full eect here. A blue ink inscription, Best Wishes, Walter Johnson, gets a bit lighter in the middle of Wishes and Johnson, but the overall eect of the writing remains strong and would rate 9/10 without these lapses. The photo itself measures 7.5x9.5, apparently hand-trimmed of its borders, and is otherwise free of aws beyond an all but imperceptible lower right corner bend.

Though this edition of the Bronx Bombers did not capture the American League ag, it stands in history as one of the most noteworthy due to its status as the last to feature the rotund Ruth. The Babe appears as one of twenty-six signatures from the 34 Yanks, his blue fountain pen ink rating 8/10, alone on a removed album page bearing a clipped newspaper image of his perpetually smiling face. Also standing alone, and similarly decorated, is a page featuring Gehrigs 9/10 ink oering. Still housed in the album are pages for Sewell (9/10), Combs (9/10), Gomez (9/10), Rung (7/10 due to some staining), and Joe McCarthy (9/10), who shares space with Bump Hadley and one other.

Residents of the Baseball and Golf Hall of Fame respectively, the Babe and Little took a brief break from the links to pose for the photographers lens, each later signing the image in 9/10 black fountain pen ink. The appeal of this one-of-a-kind image is enhanced by the absence of personalizations with the star athletes signatures, quite a rarity for signed photos of this period. The photo presents wonderfully within the approximate 6x9 viewable dimensions, though it has not been examined outside of its mounted mat.

80943 1937 Ted Williams Signed High School Yearbook. Already a Pacic Coast Leaguer while still in high school, The Kid would get the call from the Boston Red Sox during winter meetings in 1937, setting into motion the career of the most decorated gure in Fenway history. Here we present the school annual dating to that pivotal year in Williams life, acquired from the family of one of Teds senior classmates at San Diegos Herbert Hoover High School. The hardcover volume pictures the handsome youngster on page 21 with the simple caption Williams, Ted, Baseball. Even more exciting is the very early autograph on the inside rear cover of the book, reading simply Ted (V.H.). We do not know what the initials are meant to convey. The rarest of Williams signature variations, this specimen survives at 8/10 boldness. The cover of the yearbook is slightly warped with age, but there is no staining or tearing, and the binding remains tight and solid. Interior pages exhibit no issues of note. A rare relic for the advanced Williams collector. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500

80948 1939 Baseball Hall of Fame Inaugural Class Multi-Signed Display. Extraordinary celebration of the men honored at the 1939 ribbon-cutting ceremony in Cooperstown provides a high-quality autograph exemplar for each of the iconic eleven.

80950 1939 Walter Johnson Signed Index Card. The Big Train was just months away from appearing as one of the featured guests at Cooperstown for the opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame when he applied his blue fountain pen signature to this blank 3x5 index card. The signature presents as boldly as the day it was applied, and an unknown hand has dated the card at lower left. A modern collectors notation on verso causes no distraction.

His studio stamp appears on verso, along with a 1939 date in an unknown hand. The front provides a classic image of the second man in the 500 Home Run clubhouse, who inscribes To Eddie Hogan, My best to you, Jimmie Foxx, in 8/10 vintage black fountain pen ink.

80953 Circa 1940 James Raleigh Biz Mackey Signed Album Page. The 2006 posthumous Hall of Fame inductee took a fteen-year old kid named Roy Campanella under his wing in the late 1930s, with Campy later recalling, In my opinion, Biz Mackey was the master of defense of all catchers. When I was a kid in Philadelphia, I saw both Mackey and Mickey Cochrane in their primes, but for real catching skills, I dont think Cochrane was the master of defense that Mackey was. The following statement, however, is not a matter of opinion, but bona de factthe autograph of Biz Mackey is one of the rarest in Cooperstown. This is the rst example Heritage has ever handled, and our database of all major auction house results over the past dozen years likewise comes up empty. A yellow album page measuring 3x5 in size bears a 6/10 pencil Mack, Catcher, in a childlike scrawl from the man who beat out Josh Gibson for catcher in the rst East-West All-Star Game in 1933. Dont even think about complaining about the partial signature, or the pencil utilized. This guy makes Shoeless Joe Jackson seem common. This rst opportunity will almost certainly likewise be your last. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic. Starting Bid: $2,000

80956 Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Signed Blank Business Card. Gorgeous autograph exemplar is identical to another once handled by Heritage, consigned by the gentleman who had been handed the card while attending a broadcast of the Babes NBC radio program as a boy. We suspect that this is another from that breed. Ruths blue fountain pen ink is as bold as can be, with the only detraction a rusty imprint of an ancient paper clip.

Ruth makes the check payable to a New York-area golf course and is forced to add a couple extra lines for the address of his bank, apparently lacking a pre-printed example.

80964 1946 Montreal Royals Team Signed Photograph with Jackie Robinson. While 1947 is commonly recognized as the year that Jackie Robinson made his historic step across baseballs color line, thats actually not technically accurate. The future Hall of Famers assignment to the Dodgers AAA farm club Montreal Royals of the International League serves as the true milestone, and Robinsons 1946 spring training with the club supplied his rst taste of the hardships to come. Robinson was denied entry to hotels and even ballparks in the Deep South, the Jacksonville, Florida stadium padlocked shut without warning on game day to protect the institutionalized bigotry that poisoned the rst eight decades of the professional game. This artifact represents the most signicant turning point in the history of modern sport, the fulcrum upon which our National Pastime began its pivot toward the light. Jackies signature is 5/10 at far right of this 8x10 team image signed by seventeen including future or former Big Leaguers Spider Jorgensen, Herman Franks, Lew Riggs, Tommy Tatum and more. All sign in black fountain pen ink averaging 6/10 in strength. Photo itself exhibits a few bends and a heavier crease well below the central image, but nothing distracts measurably from the strong visual appeal. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

80965 1947 Alex Pompez Signed Negro League Contract. One of the most signicant executives in the tumultuous history of Negro League Baseball, Pompez served as owner of the Cuban Stars (East) and the New York Cubans franchises between 1916 and 1950. Despite his tremendous relevance to the sport, Pompez was not a name widely known in modern baseball circles until his posthumous 2006 Hall of Fame induction made his autograph an essential commodity for Cooperstown collectors. Here we nd the ultimate relic for those hobbyists, an ocial Negro National League contract for player Lorenzo Cabrera executed and signed by Pompez in his role as president of the New York Cubans. Pompez black fountain pen autograph rates a stunning 10/10, and the date and team name are likewise in the Hall of Famers hand, exponentially augmenting the appeal. The contract exhibits original storage folds and light handling wear, but the writing is not aected in the slightest. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

The McKeever name should be familiar to baseball historians as Stephen McKeever served as main owner of the team between Ebbets 1925 passing and his own in 1938. Rickeys black fountain pen signature at lower left of the 9x12 certicate rates a awless 10/10, and the piece exhibits typical storage folds but no other noteworthy condition issues.

The next three letters were written from overseas during Williams Korean War service. Each is two pages in length, two written on front and back of a single sheet of paper and the third on two separate sheets. Some tidbits: Your picture honey was terric & Ive got it right by my bed to look at & some of my thoughts keep me awake at nite thinking about you & your precious little body.

Lengthy letter to former Tigers teammate Archie Yelle centers mainly around Cobbs quite adamant request that the recipient visit him at his Lake Tahoe home for shing and boating. Most intriguing is an apparent reference to Cobbs drunk driving arrest in 1954. I sure got a tough deal in Placerville, he writes. I suppose you saw it in the papers, please believe me they surely gave me a very wrong deal and sometimes I wish I had never been publicly known and carried the name I do.

Campy, Drysdale, Cimoli, Craig and Bob Darnell sign in pencil, the rest in ink, all 9/10 or better. Other notables include Hodges, Koufax, Zimmer, Jackson, Erskine, Newcombe and Labine. Included is a letter of provenance from the consignor, and a copy of his letter to Snider requesting his signature to complete the one-autograph-perpage theme in 1992. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

80982 1956 Ty Cobb Signed Check. Fifty dollar payment by the Georgia Peach to the Olympic Club is likely related to greens fees for a golf course of that name. All handwriting and the Hall of Famers standard check format Tyrus R. Cobb signature survive in 9/10 ink. A couple vertical fold lines are apparent from storage but the check otherwise presents very well, with the banks cancellation stamping remaining well clear of the autograph. This is the most desirable Cobb check format, with his name printed along the left edge. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $150

80984 1957 Philadelphia Athletics Hall of Famers Signed Sheet with Foxx, Baker, Speaker. Both of Connie Macks great dynasties are represented on this Western Union sending blank, which features ve of the best that Cooperstown has to oer. Only Wahoo Sam Crawford failed to represent the white elephants at some point in his career, not counting the sixth autograph which we assume to be a telegraph operators. The blue ink autographs of Grove, Foxx, Baker, Crawford and Speaker maintain the same 9+/10 boldness of their application a half-century ago, and a single vertical center fold can do nothing to distract from their beauty. A typed caption at upper right notes, At Kansas City, Mo., June 7, 1957, Hall of Fame Ceremony, Phila-KSC Athletics. Sheet measures 4.5x6.5. Tape staining and minor tearing at edges remains far clear of the autographs and are mentioned only for accuracys sake. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $375

80983 Circa 1956 Roberto Clemente Signed Cut Signature, PSA/ DNA Mint 9. Tough early format autograph is far more scarce and desirable than the later model versions (though, of course, any signature from this legendary outelder is a collecting treasure). The signature is penned in 10/10 blue ink on a business card-sized blank white paper, then axed to an album page along with a 1956 program clipping which aids in determining vintage. Essential to any quality collection, Clemente appears here in its most appealing variation. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Starting Bid: $200

80985 1957 Ty Cobb Signed Government Postcard. A awless example of the Georgia Peachs essential autograph, applied in his preferred green ink, turns this two penny postcard into a treasure for the ages. The simple mailer is postmarked from Cobbs Menlo Park, California hometown and exhibits postal cancellation stamping and mild handling wear, but no distracting aws of note.

80986 1958 Ty Cobb Signed Check, PSA/DNA Mint 9. A true hobby essential, appearing here in ideal format. All handwriting appears in Cobbs 9/10 blue ink, including his Tyrus R. Cobb ocial signature. But this example earns extra points for the desirable embossed name at top and the fact that the banks punch coding remains clear of the all-important autograph. A single vertical center fold line is only apparent upon close inspection. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Starting Bid: $150

80988 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates Team Signed Display. Despite surrendering more than double the runs of their American League Champion New York Yankees opponents, the never-say-die Bucs scored when it mattered most, particularly in the form of Bill Mazeroskis walk-o blast in Game Seven. That unlikely World Championship squad is memorialized here with fortyone individual autographs from every Pirate on the 1960 roster. Most notable is a PSA-slabbed cut signature from Roberto Clemente (9/10) and a signed gold Hall of Fame plaque from Mazeroski. The rest appear mainly on signed index cards, post cards and trading cards, and include Trucks, Groat, Law, Murtaugh, Virdon, Haddix, Burgess, Hoak, Mizell and many more. Signature quality averages 9/10 across the board. Professionally designed display measures 40x48. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Third party shipping required.

80987 1958 Jimmie Foxx Signed Government Postcard. The popular through the mail autograph collecting hobby lives on to this day, but its been decades since the greatest names in the game would reliably respond. Today collectors clamber for those aging relics, like this two penny postcard mailed to a young hobbyist by the great Jimmie Foxx, whose blue ink autograph survives with unimprovable boldness. Postcard exhibits cancellation stamping and mild handling wear but nothing that could be properly characterized as damage. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic Starting Bid: $150

80989 Circa 1960 Paul Waner Signed Black & White Hall of Fame Plaque. Big Poisons death in 1965 has made his signature considerably tougher than that of his little brother Lloyd, who joins Paul in the Hall of Fame where this postcard was issued. We have little doubt that there are several autographed black and white plaque collectors who are short Pauls specimen, and this boldly signed postcard will ll that void admirably. The postcard was rediscovered decades after signing, as a 1991 handwritten note and postmark on verso will attest. A crease runs horizontally through the center of the postcard, but this is not particularly distracting and does little to minimize the appeal of the 9+/10 black ink signature.

80990 1961 Ty Cobb Signed Photograph. Just ve months before his passing at age seventy-four, the brilliant terror of the Dead Ball Era inscribed this 8x10 photograph for a buddy, writing To General Wood From His Friend Ty Cobb, 2/4/61. His black ink registers at a solid 9+/10, contrasting perfectly against the light background. A lower left corner crease does little to distract, and represents the sole condition caveat.

80992 1961 New York Yankees Reunion Team Signed Lithograph. A masterful and painstakingly detailed painting by noted sports artist Ron Lewis was reproduced in a limited run of 1,000, and then signed by thirty-three of the men who made the 1961 season one of the most memorable in the history of the Bronx. The great Roger Maris had sadly passed by the time of the reunion, but just about everyone else is here, in 7/10 to 10/10 blue sharpie. Mantle, Berra, Ford, Richardson, Boyer, Houk, Skowron, Dickey, Tresh, Duren, Terry, Lopez, Arroyo, Sain and many more.

80991 1961 New York Yankees Team Signed Display. The immortal M&M Boys provide the foundation for this impressive display remembering the World Champions and the greatest home run chase in history.

The Yankee ineld of Skowron, Richardson, Kubek and Boyer rests between them, below an unsigned team shot. The balance of the signatures appear as individual cuts gleaned from index cards, signed photos and album pages. Notables among these thirty-ve: Berra, Ford, Duren, Turley, Howard, Sain, Lopez, Tresh, Terry, Blanchard, Houk and more. All autographs rate 9/10 or better.

80994 Early 1960s Negro League Correspondence Archive (46 pieces). While the integration of baseball begun by Jackie Robinsons debut in 1947 was unquestionably a positive development for the heart and soul of our National Pastime, the advancement would slowly choke the life out of the Negro Leagues as top players were snatched up by the Majors, followed by the African-American fan base. This fascinating archive catches the dying breaths of the Negro Leagues with a selection of handwritten letters (6), typed letters (21) and various documents and contracts (19). The collection centers around the Indianapolis Clowns, with multiple documents sent to or signed by their team owner Syd Pollock. The letters largely relate to scheduling of barnstorming events, and give some sense of the fading opportunities available to a team and a baseball tradition hurtling toward obsolescence. All pages exhibit typical handling/storage wear, but there is nothing which could be properly described as damage. A thrilling lot for the baseball historian. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500 80995 1960s Jackie Robinson Signed Black & White Plaque, PSA/ DNA NM-MT 8. The Major Leagues rst black ballplayer was likewise the rst to cross Cooperstowns color line, and here we present his highly collectible Artvue black and white postcard picturing the bronze prize earned for his brilliance. Robinsons blue ink sentiment, Best Wishes, Jackie Robinson, commands an 8/10 grade from the harsh critics at PSA/DNA. The postcard itself exhibits only the faintest hint of wear at the extreme edges that doesnt aect the display whatsoever. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Starting Bid: $500

80996 1960s Jackie Robinson Handwritten Signed Letter. The rst African-American player in both the Major Leagues and the Baseball Hall of Fame sends a letter of gratitude to the new manager of a Jamaican resort.

80997 1966-67 Steve Carlton Signed Puerto Rican League Contract.

Presented is the contract for seven hundred dollars a month signed by the young southpaw in very rare early autograph format on the third page.

80998 1969 New York Mets Team Signed Display. Just seven seasons after posting a Major League mark with 120 losses in its debut campaign, the Amazin Mets found themselves atop the baseball heap as World Series Champions. This tastefully crafted display provides a comprehensive collection of 9/10 or better autographs from thirty-nine members of this unforgettable Queens edition, provided upon index cards, trading cards and cut signatures. Notables include Ryan (index), Seaver (Topps), Berra (index), McGraw (Topps), Hodges (index), Koosman (album), Swoboda (album), Clendenon (album) and many more. Display measures 34x42 in size.

80999 1971 Nolan Ryan Signed Uniform Players Contract Noting Transfer to California Angels. Though the rst glance, and the opening page of this boilerplate document, would indicate that this is a simple agreement for $20,000 for Ryans service to the New York Mets of 1971, a turn of the page reveals one of the most momentous transactions in baseball history. Two assignment stamps and a typed addendum reading As of Dec. 10, 1971, this contract is hereby assigned outright to the California Angels Club of the Am. Lg. spell the end of Ryans Big Apple tenure and the beginning of sunnier days in the City of Angels. Ryan did enjoy a World Championship 1969 season at Shea, but his talents were largely stied during his Mets years, never pitching more than 152 innings in any of his four complete tours of duty. The move to California signaled his transformation into the workhorse that would ultimately become the games Strikeout King. Ryan pitched 284 innings in the 1972 Angels season, and well over three hundred in the next two years, claiming the single season strikeout total in each. I look back now, Ryan told a reporter, and realize that the Angels represented a fresh start. The club was young and hungry, and allowed their ace to spread his wings and y in a way never possible in Queens. It may be overstating matters somewhat to compare this contract/transfer to that which transformed Babe Ruth from a Red Sock to a Yankee, but not by much. In each case, the actions freed each ballplayer to chart his own path to baseballs pantheon. The standard four-page contract is signed by Lynn Nolan Ryan, Jr., twice by Mets general manager Bob Scheng, once by American League president Joe Cronin, and twice by National League president Chub Feeney. All autographs, and the contract itself, present without any aws of note. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $1,000

81000 1970s Roger Maris & Mickey Mantle Signed Promotional Card. Rare and highly collectible artifact was consigned to Heritage by the woman to whom the piece was addressed, acquired at the end of a night of drinking with the former Yankee teammates. Weve all seen this card commemorating Maris historic sixty-rst before, but this is the rst weve encountered autographed by both halves of the M&M partnership. The eventual victor of the race inscribes To Windy, Our Best Wishes, Roger Maris, while the Mick completes the sentiment in the same 10/10 red marker, & Mickey Mantle. The 4.5x7 card exhibits no noteworthy condition issues. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic. Starting Bid: $375 81002 1978 Thurman Munson Signed New York Yankees Check. Just eighteen months before the beloved Yankees captain would lose his life in a Canton, Ohio airplane crash, Munson endorsed this $189 check issued by the New York Yankees Road Account, presumably some sort of reimbursement check for expenses incurred while traveling with the team. The verso is endorsed with a 9+/10 blue ink signature, and the check is cleverly matted and framed so that the back of the check remains visible. Full framed dimensions are 17x25. The check displays no visible condition problems beyond standard bank cancellation stamping. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Third party shipping required. Starting Bid: $375 81003 Late 1970s Thurman Munson Signed Photograph. The tragic Yankees captain for the late 1970s World Championship teams is a tough autograph in any format, but hes almost impossible on an 8x10 photo for some reason. Here we nd a magnicent example of that rarity, inscribed To Frank, Best Wishes, Thurman Munson in unimprovably bold black marker. The photo exhibits tape stains at the corner from an earlier display and a bend above Munsons left ear, but these factors cause little visual distraction. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $500

81001 1977-79 Nolan Ryan Signed Uniform Players Contract. The California Angels were fully aware by now that they had something truly special in the right arm of their New York Mets acquisition, a re-throwing righty who twice ate up over three hundred innings in his ve seasons in Los Angeles, and took the single-season strikeout record each season but one. Wisely, management took serious steps to nail down the big Texan, presenting this contract for three seasons at a quarter million dollars a year. The nal page features several typed addenda including a $200,000 signing bonus and travel expense coverage, with the future Hall of Famer indicating his agreement to the terms with two Lynn Nolan Ryan, Jr. autographs. The contract is counter-signed by American League president Lee MacPhail and Angels general manager Harry Dalton. All autographs are 9/10 or better. The standard six-page contract exhibits mild handling wear but nothing that could be characterized as damage, remaining solid, complete and perfect for display. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

81004 1979 Mickey Mantle Signed Check. We arent quite sure why Mantle checks are so maddeningly scarce. Our best guess is that the charming Mickey always had a lady taking care of his business, leaving him free to make baseball history during half of the year and carouse through the other half. In any case, many of the top check collections in the hobby are missing an autograph which is comparatively common in most other formats. This is a pristine example, apparently never used, as it lacks an endorsing signature, bank stamping or any signs of handling. Typed text pays two dollars to a Paul Rogers. Mickeys signature is a bold 9/10 ballpoint beauty. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Starting Bid: $500

81006 Unique 1980s Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris Signed Photograph. With each passing year, baseball historians appreciate a little bit more what an amazing story the Summer of 61 was, and what a phenomenal pair of sluggers were the M&M boys. As such, the value of the rather short supply of dual-signed artifacts continue to rise with unwavering consistency, and at a sharp angle to boot. So those following the market will know that the time is now to invest in this classic photo of the hard-hitting pair, each signing in blue sharpie for posterity. Both autographs remain as bold as the day they were applied, and the 8x10 photo is likewise free of aws. This specimen is particularly interesting as it appears that the rst signer forgot which person he was, leaving the second no option but to continue the schizophrenic theme. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Precertied by PSA/DNA. Starting Bid: $375

81005 Circa 1980 Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris Signed Picture Pack Premiums. Pair of 5x7 images on paper derive from the popular Picture Packs sold at Big League ballparks around the time of the celebrated 1961 home run race. Here we nd these vintage relics in autographed form, the 10/10 sharpie likely dating the autographs to the years just prior to Maris passing. Mantle personalizes his photo To Bill, while Maris simply adds Best Wishes to his autograph. Premiums exhibit some inconsequential toning at the edges, otherwise EX-MT. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

81013 1990s Mickey Mantle Signed Large Photograph. Oversized (11x14) photo of the Mick during his second season in pinstripes is not an image you see every day, and certainly not in such prodigious dimensions. Mantles autograph is proportionally rendered in 10/10 blue sharpie, and bears the exceedingly scarce notation of 1952. Even the most comprehensive Mantle collections are likely missing this one. Photo is NRMT-MT, and presented in a photographic mat that expands the nal dimensions to 16x19. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Starting Bid: $200

81019 2010 Leaf Sports Icons Shoeless Joe Jackson Signed Cut Signature Trading Card. Hoards of trading card and autograph collectors alike swarmed the Leaf corporate booth at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago this year to sneak a peek at this impressive redemption card, the only Shoeless Joe Jackson cut signature model ever released by a major trading card company. So when one lucky Leaf collector pulled The Golden Ticket, so to speak, to win ownership of this intense rarity, it was the hobby equivalent of a lottery win. Heritage is thrilled and honored to have been chosen by the lucky winner to present the card at auction to the collecting world at large. We all know that the brilliant but troubled conspirator in the 1919 World Series Black Sox scandal was functionally illiterate, and that his autograph is consequently extraordinarily rare. While there are a few scattered instances of Jacksons autograph appearing on baseballs and in autograph albums, he tended to avoid the diculty and embarrassment of signing when possible. As such, we nd most of the available Jackson autographs on ocial/legal documents which required a genuine signature. Clearly this representation, applied with the disjointed scribble of a child that typies Jackson exemplars, was trimmed from some form of ocial paperwork as the printed ...rance Recognizan... text above his name would indicate. The autograph survives with impressive 8/10 boldness. The card itself has been aorded the meticulous level of care it merits since its creation, presenting in awless NRMT-MT condition. The undisputed king of the baseball cut signature card realm, this special rarity will singlehandedly establish its owner as the leading hobbyist in that important hobby subgenre.

81020 1955 Hall of Famers Multi-Signed Bat with Ott, Cobb, Lajoie, More. A small handwritten notation near the trademark of this absolutely massive (42 long!) Hillerich & Bradsby reads 1955 Cooperstown Induction, and the roster of signers would appear to validate this date. The oversized barrel is adorned with a constellation of star autographs, though we must stipulate that the fountain pen ink used for their application has not weathered the passing decades as well as one might hope. The following autographs remain quite readily legible: Ott, Cobb, Lajoie, Wheat (8/10), Walsh, Traynor, Terry, Schalk, Greenberg, Dickey, Conlan, Vance, Speaker, Baker, McCarthy, Crawford, Sisler (7/10), Gehringer (5/10), Frisch. Unless otherwise noted, the autographs will fall into the 2/10 to 4/10 range. The original owner of the bat has rounded out the full roster of Hall of Fame residents with hand printed names at the center of the bat, most of whom were already deceased at the time of the signing. In awless condition the sky would be the limit for the price tag on this special relic, but there is still enormous appeal here as an object touched by a stunning array of diamond legends.

81038 1917-19 Detroit Tigers Team Signed Baseball with Ty Cobb. Rare Dead Ball Era team ball adds one notch to the small tally of pre-1920 examples to surface at auction, and features what is arguably the denitive gure from that period when speed and stealth was the name of the game. The illustrious Georgia Peach snuggles up to the circular Reach stamping on this OAL (Johnson) ball, his 2/10 black fountain pen ink trapped like a y in amber beneath an ancient coating of shellac. Other visible signatures appear from Harry Heilmann, Boland, Bush, Cunningham, Dauss and Yelle (whose threeseason term of service allows us to date the ball). Others can be detected, but are too light to discern. Despite the eye strain it inspires, this is a rarity that still carries no shortage of collecting appeal, a rare playing-days team ball from the heart of Ty Cobbs historic career.

81039 1919 Cleveland Indians Team Signed Baseball with Ray Chapman. Though a rock-solid member of the Indians ineld for nine seasons, shortstop Ray Chapmans tragic claim to baseball fame is his status as the second player ever killed in Major League competition. The victim of a Carl Mays beanball, Chapman fell on August 16, 1920 at The Polo Grounds in uptown Manhattan, just a year after this exceedingly rare OAL (Johnson) ball was autographed. Needless to say, Chapmans autograph is available in very limited supply, and his 6.5/10 oering at the top of the western panel is the nest weve yet encountered on a baseball. He is joined by twentyeight teammates from the 1919 American League runners-up, notably Speaker (4/10), Coveleski (7/10), Wambsganss (1.5/10), ONeill (8/10), Johnston (7/10), Bagby (9/10) and more. Signature quality covers the full range noted above, but the vast majority are on the upper end of that scale. A thrilling rarity that should be a compelling target for the advanced collector.

81040 1919 Boston Red Sox Team Signed Baseball with Babe Ruth. Blissfully unaware that they were in the rst of an eighty-six year drought, the defending World Champions autographed this OAL (Johnson) ball the year of the greatest scandal in Major League history. While considerable post-signing wear has complicated the legibility of the signatures adorning this ancient horsehide, we are able to discern the following among the names: Ruth, Barrow, Hooper, McInnis, Winn, Gainer, Shean, McNeil, Shannon and Dumont. Barrow leads the pack with 9/10 black fountain pen boldness, but the rest fall into the 1/10 to 3/10 neighborhood, including the Babe on the panel below Barrow. The lesser condition must be forgiven in light of the tremendous rarity and desirability of a Ruth-era Red Sox ball, however, one of just a tiny handful known to survive in the collecting community. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Starting Bid: $1,500 81041 1925 Cincinnati Reds Team Signed Baseball. Edd Roush (2/10) and Eppa Rixey (7/10) provided future Hall of Fame credentials to this squad from the birthplace of professional ball, and each appears among the approximately twenty visible signatures on the presented ONL (Heydler) sphere. Exceedingly rare team ball runs the gamut when it comes to signature quality, with one panel all but gone and other names, including killer pitcher Carl Mays, Adolfo Luque and Hugh Critz quite readily legible. The average is somewhere in the 3/10 neighborhood, but much slack must be given in consideration of the intense scarcity. According to our auction results database, this is the very rst 1920s Reds ball to reach a major sports auction block in the past dozen years. Pre-certied by PSA/DNA.

81042 1926 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball, Second Finest Known! For years it reigned as the Heavyweight Champ, but this sphere was forced to reluctantly surrender its title as the discovery of Lou Gehrigs personal Mint condition sphere shook up the hobby world. That Gehrig example served as the rst lot of the Heritage 2011 Platinum Night auction in August, where it set a new world record for team signed baseballs with a stunning $131,450 winning bid. Theres certainly no shame in a silver medal however, and this representation from the American League Champs doesnt trail too far behind the Iron Horses personal model. The OAL (Johnson) orb is a study in what an expertly applied coating of shellac can accomplish, trapping the twenty-nine black fountain pen signatures beneath it like ies in amber, suspended in time with barely a hint of the passage of decades. A quotation-marked Babe Ruth assumes his rightful sweet spot position, holding the signatures of legends like Gehrig, Pennock, Combs, Lazzeri, Hoyt and the super-tough Urban Shocker in its gravitational orbit. Other notable names include Meusel, Pipgras, Bengough, Gazella, Paschal, Collins and Ward. A small divot in the leather skirts the edge of Shawkeys signature but remains mercifully clear of the rest. We can assure the collecting community that the Gehrig example will not be seeing the light of the auction day for quite some time to come, so this is the one to chase if you count yourself among the most discerning of Yankees collectors.

While one might assign any road team the nickname Grays, the score doesnt match that dates meeting with the visiting Tigers, nor any other MLB contest near that time. Even if the mystery remains just that, theres much to love about this oering, most notably the bold (7/10) sweet spot oering from Babe Ruth, who is joined by nine teammates including Durocher, Combs, Dickey, Moore, Paschal and more. Signatures are all readily legible, averaging 7/10. The PSA/DNA letter notes a signature removal on the eastern panel. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

With American League Championships in 1921, 1922, 1923, 1926, 1927 and 1928, you could forgive the Yanks for being a bit smug in their meeting with the As, but the White Elephants would remember their harsh treatment and shock the Babe and the boys by taking the ag for the next three years. Presented is an exciting relic from that meeting of Golden Age juggernauts, an OAL (Barnard) ball bearing eighteen signatures from Philly and the Bronx. The Babe (5/10) takes his standard sweet spot position, with Gehrig rating 7/10 on the northern panel, and appearing again at a very light 1.5/10 to the west.

For whatever reason, pre-war Brooklyn balls are particularly tough, and this is a ne specimen, boasting nineteen bold black fountain pen signatures from this early Ebbets squad. Notables include Hall of Famers Bancroft and Vance, who share a side panel for ideal display.
