Description

Offered is a 1935 Who’s Who in Baseball book that contains fourteen autographs and includes the treasured penning of Mel Ott (“10”, d.1958). These exemplary autographs have been signed in blue ink and grade mostly (“9” to “10”). Many of these signatures are signed next to the player’s biography and include Dick Bartell (d.1995), Wally Berger (d.1998), Joe Coscarart (d.1993), Joseph Gregg, Mickey Haslin (d.2002), Gus Mancuso (d.1984), Bobby Reis (d.1973), Bill Urbanski (d.1973) and Burgess Whitehead (d.1993). The autographs of Al Blanche (d.1997), Al Cucinello (d.2004), Jimmie Ripple (d.1959) and Lefty Weir (d.2004) are signed on a blank autograph page in the middle of the book. The book grades (VG) and shows some water damage on the left corner that has bled some of the red dye onto the lower corners of the inner pages. The cover shows significant wear on the edges, binding and corners. The binding has partially separated from the inner pages. About 30% of the player biographies contain small handwritten notes, and the pages show significant toning that is normal for a book of this age. COA from James Spence Authentications.
