Dick Perez created a true masterpiece when he published the Celebration Set in 1989. The offered set contains (44) postcard-sized works of art featuring great ballplayers, all who were living when the set was issued. The postcard set comes in a leather box with a wonderful color image of early ball players plying their craft and a 12-page heavyweight paper book featuring the artwork. With some of the top stars included, the set garners much attention from autograph collectors because (26/44) of the beautiful cards have been signed including Aparicio, Berra, Boudreau (d.2001), Chandler (d.1991), Doerr, Ferrell (d.1995), Herman (d.1992), Hunter (d.1999), Irvin, Kaline, Kell, Killebrew, Kiner, Lemon (d.2000), Leonard (d.1997), Mantle (d.1995), Marichal, Mathews (d.2001), Mize (d.1993), Musial, B. Robinson, Slaughter (d.2002), Snider, Spahn (d.2003), Stargell (d.2001) and B. Williams. Each card and signature is in strong, high-grade condition; the set is (#07468/10000).
