    Description

    1958 YANKEE AUTOGRAPHED SHEETS. A total of 40 New York Yankee autographs are scribed in this collection, and they are fashionably random on simple unlined paper. They’re placed in acceptably sharp pencil, and all are "9-10" in quality. The first of these sheets, measuring 5" x 7", bears 14 different on one side and four others on the reverse. The former side itemizes: Siebern, Howard, Turner, McDougald, Stengel, Maglie, Shantz, Mantle, Larsen, Duren, Simpson, Monroe, Skowron and Berra. And its reverse has Richardson, Crosetti, Turley and Grim. A second sheet, 8" x 5", has been signed on one side by Crosetti and Sturdivant only. And finally, another 8" x 5" holds 20 autographs to include: Skowron, Simpson, Turley, Throneberry, Coates, Maglie, Al Cicotte, Berra, Larsen, Turner, Richardson, Grim, Bauer, Howard, Siebern, Ditmar, Mark Freeman, Stengel, Duren and Shantz. None of these 40 signatures appear more than once on a sheet. (With fifteen duplicated from one sheet to another, the net amounts to 25 different.) We reason that some, or all, of these autographs were acquired in 1958’s Spring Training as Mark Freeman was not rostered until 1959. LOA Spence and Grad/DNA.(# This item may require additional shipping charges).
