Compiled is an impressive accumulation of (150) 1930s baseball signatures that are placed on sixteen album pages (three of which are double-sided) that have been pulled from a period scrapbook. The lined 7-1/2x9-1/2 ephemera is endorsed in blue ink or vintage pencil, with the majority of signatures grading in the (“7-8”) range or better. The condition-sensitive paper reveals varying degrees of fraying but still project the autographs very well. Several Hall of Famers, stars, and obscure role players who died in the 1930s-1940s (with death dates noted) are present. Highlights include Appling, Averill, Blue, C. Brown, Cochrane, (2) Doljack (d.1948), Fraser (d.1940), (2) Gehringer, Greenberg, Grove, B. Harris, Hornsby, W. Johnson (d.1946), Koenecke (d.1935), (2) Lyons, (2) McAfee, Jo. McCarthy, McGowan, O. Miller, Ostermueller, Rolfe, (2) Rowe, Ruffing, Shea, Stone, Whitehill and H. Wilson (d.1948). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentications.
