Description

Dick Perez created a true masterpiece when he published the Celebration Set in 1989. This lot contains (44) postcard-sized works of art featuring great ballplayers, all who were alive 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. This set has (25/44) of the beautiful cards signed and include Aparicio, Berra, Boudreau (d.2000), Chandler (d.1991), Doerr, Ferrell (d.1995), Herman (d.1992), Hunter (d.1999), Irvin, Kaline, Kell, Killebrew, Kiner, Lemon (d.2000), Leonard (d.1997), Marichal, E. Mathews (d.2000), 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 the utmost state of excellence and the set is (#7460/10000). These autographs come with a COA from James Spence Authentications.
