1949-1970 Signed Baseball Yearbook and World Series Program Collection (37 with 257 signatures)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,350
Large collection of baseball yearbooks and World Series programs spanning the years 1949 to 1970, each signed on the front by one or more players. The majority of the yearbooks and programs offered here are either New York Yankees or Brooklyn Dodgers examples, with a number of years duplicated. Few of the signatures are vintage in nature, with nearly all having been rendered in blue or black Sharpie. Ideally, our consignor, a longtime collector, obtained most of the signatures (grading "9" or "10") in person at various signing shows in the 1980s and 1990s.
