Description

Assembled is a splendid autograph collection with six tough Negro league signatures and (17) signatures from the 1961 Golden Press and 1964 Topps Giants. The seven Negro League-signed items include a pair of very difficult Willie Wells pieces, a 3x5 card signed on the lined side (d.1989, 8) and an extremely rare signed 3x5 black and white photograph, signed on the back (9). Both Wells signatures are dated 5-12-81 and are in blue ink. The remaining five items are two index cards, one signed by Leonard (d.1997, pre-stroke, 9) and Ted Page (d.1981, 8) and two 3x5 black and white photos of Judy Johnson (d.1989, 8), Leonard (d.1997, 7) and Page (d.1981, 5). The other signatures come as part of complete sets. The Golden Press set, which contains (33) cards, is in off-to-mid grade with (5) signed cards including Greenberg (d.1986, 8), Terry (d.1989, 8), DiMaggio (d.1999, 9), Gehringer (d.1993, 10) and Cronin (d.1984, 6). The 1964 Topps Giants set is in overall EX-MT condition with the key cards grading #3 Koufax (EX), #11 Clemente (NM), #25 Mantle (VG-EX), #49 Aaron (NM) and#51 Mays (EX-MT). The dozen signed cards are Bailey, Pappas, Bunning, Groat, Brinkman, Pascual, Ward, Wickersham, Radatz, Oliva, B. Robinson and Cepeda. COA from James Spence Authentications.
