Description

Perennial Bronx champions and a history making Hall of Famer are the endorsers of these (7) coveted cut signatures. Headlining the lot are: an autographed album page with a vintage Mickey Mantle (“8-9” strength); a sheet of lined paper signed by Joe DiMaggio (“10” strength); a cut signature rendered by Jackie Robinson (“7” strength); a sheet of handwritten correspondence signed by Casey Stengel (“10” strength); and an album page signed by Billy Martin (“9” strength) and Ralph Houk (“10” strength). Individual full photo LOAs from JSA. More on our website.

Mickey Mantle: a blank album page measuring 3-7/8 x 5” with a vintage black-ink Mantle penning (“8-9” strength). The page is also signed in black ink by Dom DiMaggio, whose faded scripting shows (“4”” strength and is covered by a vintage strip of transparent tape. Black-and-white published period photos of each are adhered to the page.

Joe DiMaggio: a lined sheet of approximately 4-1/2 x 3-5/8” signed by DiMaggio in blue ballpoint (“10” strength) and inscribed “Best Wishes.”

Jackie Robinson: a 3 x 2” thick-stock scrap signed by Robinson in graphite pencil (“7” strength) and inscribed “Best Wishes.” The first name is minimally affected by transparent tape residue. Just below Robinson’s scripting, a blue ballpoint notation of “baseball player” was written in an unknown hand and does not at all affect Robinson’s signature. On the reverse, a piece of bubble gum was likely adhered long ago to facilitate previous mounting.

Casey Stengel: a 6-7/8 x 7-7/8” lined page has content composed entirely in Stengel’s hand. Dated “May 4th 71,” the letter reads: “Dear Sir:- Joe Jackson was a great noted ball player but all Hall of Fame rules are judged by Commissioner group.

(signed) Casey Stengel

The blue ballpoint penning trumpets (“10”) strength.

Billy Martin/Ralph Houk: a blank album page measuring 3-7/8 x 5”, signed in black ink by Ralph Houk (“10” strength) and Billy Martin (“9” strength). A published period photo of Martin is adhered.
